2005-09-20[PATCH] Remove total confusion from "git checkout"Linus Torvalds
The target to check out does not need to be a branch. The _result_ of the checkout needs to be a branch. Don't confuse the two, and then insult the user. Insulting is ok, but I personally get really pissed off is a tool is both confused and insulting. At least be _correct_ and insulting.

2005-09-13[PATCH] Make 'git checkout' a bit more forgiving when switching branches.Junio C Hamano
If you make a commit on a path, and then make the path cache-dirty afterwards without changing its contents, 'git checkout' to switch to another branch is prevented because switching the branches done with 'read-tree -m -u $current $next' detects that the path is cache-dirty, but it does not bother noticing that the contents of the path has not been actualy changed. Since switching branches would involve checking out paths different in the two branches, hence it is reasonably expensive operation, we can afford to run update-index before running read-tree to reduce this kind of false change from triggering the check needlessly.

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.
