2010-06-14Remove python 2.5'ismsBrandon Casey
The following python 2.5 features were worked around: * the sha module is used as a fallback when the hashlib module is not available * the 'any' built-in method was replaced with a 'for' loop * a conditional expression was replaced with an 'if' statement * the subprocess.check_call method was replaced by a call to subprocess.Popen followed by a call to subprocess.wait with a check of its return status These changes allow the python infrastructure to be used with python 2.4 which is distributed with RedHat's RHEL 5, for example. t5800 was updated to check for python >= 2.4 to reflect these changes.

2010-04-10Makefile: Simplify handling of python scriptsBrian Gernhardt
The sed script intended to add a standard opening to python scripts was non-compatible and overly complex. Simplifying it down to a set of one-liners removes the compatibility issues of newlines. Moving the environment alterations from the Makefile to the python scripts makes also makes the scripts easier to run in-place. Specifically, the new sed script: - Alters the shebang line to use the configured Python. - Alters any os.getenv("GITPYTHONLIB") calls to use @@INSTLIBDIR@@ as the default. This will replace any existing default or add a default if none is provided. - Replaces the @@INSTLIBDIR@@ placeholder with the directory git installs its python libraries to. The last two steps could be combined into a single step, but is left separate in case someone has another need for @@INSTLIBDIR@@ in their script.

2010-04-01remote-helpers: add testgit helperSverre Rabbelier
Currently the remote helper infrastructure is only used by the curl helper, which does not give a good impression of how remote helpers can be used to interact with foreign repositories. Since implementing such a helper is non-trivial it would be good to have at least one easy-to-follow example demonstrating how to implement a helper that interacts with a foreign vcs using fast-import/fast-export. The testgit helper can be used to interact with remote git repositories by prefixing the url with "testgit::". Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
