2010-08-18git-gui: ensure correct application termination in git-gui--askpassPat Thoyts
With Tk 8.5 the askpass utility can hang waiting for the wish shell implicit event loop to exit. This patch uses an explicit event loop to ensure correct application termination. Reported-by: Anders Kaseorg <> Tested-by: Jonathan Nieder <> Signed-off-by: Pat Thoyts <>
2008-11-01git-gui: Add a simple implementation of SSH_ASKPASS.Alexander Gavrilov
OpenSSH allows specifying an external program to use for direct user interaction. While most Linux systems already have such programs, some environments, for instance, msysgit, lack it. This patch adds a simple fallback Tcl implementation of the tool. In msysgit it is also necessary to set a fake value of the DISPLAY variable, because otherwise ssh won't even try to use SSH_ASKPASS handlers.
