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.

2005-08-20Call prune-packed from "git prune" as well.Junio C Hamano
Add -n (dryrun) flag to git-prune-packed, and call it from "git prune". Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-07-29[PATCH] remove "-r" option to xargsJohannes Schindelin
git-prune-script still contained that non-portable option. Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-07-14Make "git prune" use the "--full" flag to git-fsck-cacheLinus Torvalds
It's too dangerous not to. We need to follow alternate object directories etc, or we might say something is unreachable just because we didn't look it up completely.
2005-07-08Add "git-sh-setup-script" for common git shell script setupLinus Torvalds
It sets up the normal git environment variables and a few helper functions (currently just "die()"), and returns ok if it all looks like a git archive. So use it something like . git-sh-setup-script || die "Not a git archive" to make the rest of the git scripts more careful and readable.
2005-05-18fsck-cache: walk the 'refs' directory if the user doesn't give anyLinus Torvalds
explicit references for reachability analysis. We already had that as separate logic in git-prune-script, so this is not a new special case - it's an old special case moved into fsck, making normal usage be much simpler.
2005-05-10Introduce GIT_DIR environment variable.Junio C Hamano
During the mailing list discussion on renaming GIT_ environment variables, people felt that having one environment that lets the user (or Porcelain) specify both SHA1_FILE_DIRECTORY (now GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY) and GIT_INDEX_FILE for the default layout would be handy. This change introduces GIT_DIR environment variable, from which the defaults for GIT_INDEX_FILE and GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY are derived. When GIT_DIR is not defined, it defaults to ".git". GIT_INDEX_FILE defaults to "$GIT_DIR/index" and GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY defaults to "$GIT_DIR/objects". Special thanks for ideas and discussions go to Petr Baudis and Daniel Barkalow. Bugs are mine ;-) Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-05-10Rename environment variables.Junio C Hamano
H. Peter Anvin mentioned that using SHA1_whatever as an environment variable name is not nice and we should instead use names starting with "GIT_" prefix to avoid conflicts. Here is what this patch does: * Renames the following environment variables: New name Old Name GIT_AUTHOR_DATE AUTHOR_DATE GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL AUTHOR_EMAIL GIT_AUTHOR_NAME AUTHOR_NAME GIT_COMMITTER_EMAIL COMMIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL GIT_COMMITTER_NAME COMMIT_AUTHOR_NAME GIT_ALTERNATE_OBJECT_DIRECTORIES SHA1_FILE_DIRECTORIES GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY SHA1_FILE_DIRECTORY * Introduces a compatibility macro, gitenv(), which does an getenv() and if it fails calls gitenv_bc(), which in turn picks up the value from old name while giving a warning about using an old name. * Changes all users of the environment variable to fetch environment variable with the new name using gitenv(). * Updates the documentation and scripts shipped with Linus GIT distribution. The transition plan is as follows: * We will keep the backward compatibility list used by gitenv() for now, so the current scripts and user environments continue to work as before. The users will get warnings when they have old name but not new name in their environment to the stderr. * The Porcelain layers should start using new names. However, just in case it ends up calling old Plumbing layer implementation, they should also export old names, taking values from the corresponding new names, during the transition period. * After a transition period, we would drop the compatibility support and drop gitenv(). Revert the callers to directly call getenv() but keep using the new names. The last part is probably optional and the transition duration needs to be set to a reasonable value.

2005-05-05Make git-prune-script executable again.Junio C Hamano
I do not know why the executable bit was lost since the change went in as GIT pull, not via e-mail patch, but here is a fix. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2005-05-05Make "git-prune-script" take all refs into account.Linus Torvalds
This avoids pruning the kernel v2.6.11 tree that now has a tag.
2005-05-04Git-prune-script loses blobs referenced from an uncommitted cache.Junio C Hamano
(updated from the version posted to GIT mailing list). When a new blob is registered with update-cache, and before the cache is written as a tree and committed, git-fsck-cache will find the blob unreachable. This patch adds a new flag, "--cache" to git-fsck-cache, with which it keeps such blobs from considered "unreachable". The git-prune-script is updated to use this new flag. At the same time it adds .git/refs/*/* to the set of default locations to look for heads, which should be consistent with expectations from Cogito users. Without this fix, "diff-cache -p --cached" after git-prune-script has pruned the blob object will fail mysteriously and git-write-tree would also fail. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2005-04-18Add the simple scripts I used to do a merge with content conflicts.Linus Torvalds
They sure as hell aren't perfect, but they allow you to do: ./git-pull-script {other-git-directory} to do the initial merge, and if that had content clashes, you do merge-cache ./git-merge-one-file-script -a which tries to auto-merge. When/if the auto-merge fails, it will leave the last file in your working directory, and you can edit it and then when you're happy you can do "update-cache filename" on it. Re-do the merge-cache thing until there are no files left to be merged, and now you can write the tree and commit: write-tree commit-tree .... -p $(cat .git/HEAD) -p $(cat .git/MERGE_HEAD) and you're done.
