2005-09-18[PATCH] Improved "git add"Linus Torvalds
This fixes everybodys favourite complaint about "git add", namely that it doesn't take directories. We use "git-ls-files --others" to generate an arbitrary list of filenames, and thus also automatically honor ignore-files while we're at it. Side note: there's a lot of room for improvement here. In particular, if we have a long list of filenames (importing a big archive), this will just do a big stupid for-loop and add them one at a time. Maybe it should use generate-list | xargs -0 git-update-idex --add -- instead. Also, I think we should have a default ignore list if we don't find a .git/info/exclude file. Ignoring "*.o" and ".*" by default would probably be the right thing to do. But I think this is a good first step. Use the "-n" flag to just show the list of files to be added without adding them.

2005-09-08Big tool rename.Junio C Hamano
As promised, this is the "big tool rename" patch. The primary differences since 0.99.6 are: (1) git-*-script are no more. The commands installed do not have any such suffix so users do not have to remember if something is implemented as a shell script or not. (2) Many command names with 'cache' in them are renamed with 'index' if that is what they mean. There are backward compatibility symblic links so that you and Porcelains can keep using the old names, but the backward compatibility support is expected to be removed in the near future.
