Signed-off-by: David Aguilar <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> - Remove trailing / from URL if foundMark Levedahl
git clone does not complain if a trailing '/' is included in the origin URL, but doing so causes resolution of a submodule's URL relative to the superproject to fail. Trailing /'s are likely when cloning locally using tab-completion, so the slash may appear in either superproject or submodule URL. So, ignore the trailing slash if it already exists in the superproject's URL, and don't record one for the submodule (which could itself have submodules...). The problem I'm trying to fix is that a number of folks have superprojects checked out where the recorded origin URL has a trailing /, and a submodule has its origin in a directory sitting right next to the superproject on the server. Thus, we have: superproject url = server:/public/super submodoule url = server:/public/sub1 However, in the checked out superproject's .git/config [remote "origin"] url = server:/public/super/ and for similar reasons, the submodule has its URL recorded in .gitmodules as [submodule "sub"] path = submodule1 url = ../sub1/ resolve_relative_url gets the submodule's recorded url as $1, which the caller retrieved from .gitmodules, and retrieves the superprojects origin from .git/config. So in this case resolve_relative_url has that: url = ../sub1/ remoteurl = server:/public/super/ So, without any patch, resolve_relative_url computes the submodule's URL as: server:/public/super/sub1/ rather than server:/public/sub1 In summary, it is essential that resolve_relative_url strip the trailing / from the superproject's url before starting, and beneficial if it assures that the result does not contain a trailing / as the submodule may itself also be a superproject.

git clone does not complain if a trailing '/' is included in the origin URL, but doing so causes resolution of a submodule's URL relative to the superproject to fail. Regardless of whether git is changed to remove the trailing / before recording the URL, we should avoid this issue in submodule as existing repositories can have this problem.

2008-08-17git-submodule - Add 'foreach' subcommandMark Levedahl
submodule foreach <command-list> will execute the list of commands in each currently checked out submodule directory. The list of commands is arbitrary as long as it is acceptable to sh. The variables '$path' and '$sha1' are availble to the command-list, defining the submodule path relative to the superproject and the submodules's commitID as recorded in the superproject (this may be different than HEAD in the submodule). This utility is inspired by a number of threads on the mailing list looking for ways to better integrate submodules in a tree and work with them as a unit. This could include fetching a new branch in each from a given source, or possibly checking out a given named branch in each. Currently, there is no consensus as to what additional commands should be implemented in the porcelain, requiring all users whose needs exceed that of git-submodule to do their own scripting. The foreach command is intended to support such scripting, and in particular does no error checking and produces no output, thus allowing end users complete control over any information printed out and over what constitutes an error. The processing does terminate if the command-list returns an error, but processing can easily be forced for all submodules be terminating the list with ';true'.

2008-07-15git-submodule - register submodule URL if adding in placeMark Levedahl
When adding a new submodule in place, meaning the user created the submodule as a git repo in the superproject's tree first, we don't go through "git submodule init" to register the module. Thus, the submodule's origin repository URL is not stored in .git/config, and no subsequent submodule operation will ever do so. In this case, assume the URL the user supplies to "submodule add" is the one that should be registered, and do so. Signed-off-by: Mark Levedahl <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2008-07-15git-submodule - make "submodule add" more strict, and document itMark Levedahl
This change makes "submodule add" much more strict in the arguments it takes, and is intended to address confusion as recently noted on the git-list. With this change, the required syntax is: $ git submodule add URL path Specifically, this eliminates the form $ git submodule add URL which was confused by more than one person as $ git submodule add path With this patch, the URL locating the submodule's origin repository can be either an absolute URL, or (if it begins with ./ or ../) can express the submodule's repository location relative to the superproject's origin. This patch also eliminates a third form of URL, which was relative to the superproject's top-level directory (not its repository). Any URL that was neither absolute nor matched ./*|../* was assumed to point to a subdirectory of the superproject as the location of the submodule's origin repository. This URL form was confusing and does not seem to correspond to an important use-case. Specifically, no-one has identified the need to clone from a repository already in the superproject's tree, but if this is needed it is easily done using an absolute URL: $(pwd)/relative-path. So, no functionality is lost with this patch. ( did rely upon this relative URL, fixed by using $(pwd).) Following this change, there are exactly four variants of submodule-add, as both arguments have two flavors: URL can be absolute, or can begin with ./|../ and thus names the submodule's origin relative to the superproject's origin. Note: With this patch, "submodule add" discerns an absolute URL as matching /*|*:*: e.g., URL begins with /, or it contains a :. This works for all valid URLs, an absolute path in POSIX, as well as an absolute path on Windows). path can either already exist as a valid git repo, or will be cloned from the given URL. The first form here eases creation of a new submodule in an existing superproject as the submodule can be added and tested in-tree before pushing to the public repository. However, the more usual form is the second, where the repo is cloned from the given URL. This specifically addresses the issue of $ git submodule add a/b/c attempting to clone from a repository at "a/b/c" to create a new module in "c". This also simplifies description of "relative URL" as there is now exactly *one* form: a URL relative to the parent's origin repo. Signed-off-by: Mark Levedahl <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2008-06-13Improve sed portabilityChris Ridd
The behaviour of "sed" on an incomplete line is unspecified by POSIX, and On Solaris it apparently fails to process input that doesn't end in a LF. Consequently constructs like re=$(printf '%s' foo | sed -e 's/bar/BAR/g' $) cause re to be set to the empty string. Such a construct is used in Because the LF at the end of command output are stripped away by the command substitution, it is a safe and sane change to add a LF at the end of the printf format specifier.

2008-04-15git-submodule - possibly use branch name to describe a moduleMark Levedahl
This changes the search logic for describing a submodule from: - annotated tag - any tag - tag on a subsequent commit - commit id to - annotated tag - any tag - tag on a subsequent commit - local or remote branch - commit id The change is describing with respect to a branch before falling back to the commit id. By itself, git-submodule will maintain submodules as headless checkouts without ever making a local branch. In general, such heads can always be described relative to the remote branch regardless of existence of tags, and so provides a better fallback summary than just the commit id. This requires inserting an extra describe step as --contains is incompatible with --all, but the latter can be used with --always to fall back to a commit ID. Also, --contains implies --tags, so the latter is not needed. Signed-off-by: Mark Levedahl <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2008-03-13grep portability fix: don't use "-e" or "-q"Jeff King
System V versions of grep (such as Solaris /usr/bin/grep) don't understand either of these options. git's usage of "grep -e pattern" fell into one of two categories: 1. equivalent to "grep pattern". -e is only useful here if the pattern begins with a "-", but all of the patterns are hardcoded and do not begin with a dash. 2. stripping comments and blank lines with grep -v -e "^$" -e "^#" We can fortunately do this in the affirmative as grep '^[^#]' Uses of "-q" can be replaced with redirection to /dev/null. In many tests, however, "grep -q" is used as "if this string is in the expected output, we are OK". In this case, it is fine to just remove the "-q" entirely; it simply makes the "verbose" mode of the test slightly more verbose. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2008-03-12git-submodule summary: show commit summaryPing Yin
This patch does the hard work to show submodule commit summary. For a modified submodule, a series of commits will be shown with the following command: git log --pretty='format:%m %s' \ --first-parent sha1_src...sha1_dst where the sha1_src is from the given super project commit and the sha1_dst is from the index or working tree (switched by --cached). For a deleted, added, or typechanged (blob<->submodule) submodule, only one single newest commit from the existing end (for example, src end for submodule deleted or type changed from submodule to blob) will be shown. If the src/dst sha1 for a submodule is missing in the submodule directory, a warning will be issued except in two cases where the submodule directory is deleted (type 'D') or typechanged to blob (one case of type 'T'). In the title line for a submodule, the src/dst sha1 and the number of commits (--first-parent) between the two commits will be shown. The following example demonstrates most cases. Example: commit summary for modified submodules sm1-sm5. -------------------------------------------- $ git submodule summary * sm1 354cd45...3f751e5 (4): < one line message for C < one line message for B > one line message for D > one line message for E * sm2 5c8bfb5...000000 (3): < one line message for F * sm3 354cd45...3f751e5: Warn: sm3 doesn't contain commit 354cd45 * sm4 354cd34(submodule)-> 235efa(blob) (1): < one line message for G * sm5 354cd34(blob)-> 235efa(submodule) (5): > one line message for H -------------------------------------------- Signed-off-by: Ping Yin <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2008-03-12git-submodule summary: code frameworkPing Yin
These patches teach git-submodule a new subcommand 'summary' to show commit summary of checked out submodules between a given super project commit (defaults to HEAD) and working tree (or index, when --cached is given). This patch just introduces the framework to find submodules which have summary to show. A submodule will have summary if it falls into these cases: - type 'M': modified and checked out (1) - type 'A': added and checked out (2) - type 'D': deleted - type 'T': typechanged (blob <-> submodule) Notes: 1. There may be modified but not checked out cases. In the case of a merge conflict, even if the submodule is not checked out, there may be still a diff between index and HEAD on the submodule entry (i.e. modified). The summary will not be show for such a submodule. 2. A similar explanation applies to the added but not checked out case. Signed-off-by: Ping Yin <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2008-03-05git-submodule - Allow adding a submodule in-placeMark Levedahl
When working in the top-level project, it is useful to create a new submodule as a git repo in a subdirectory, then add that submodule to the top-level in place. This patch allows "git submodule add <intended url> subdir" to add the existing subdir to the current project. The presumption is the user will later push / clone the subdir to the <intended url> so that future submodule init / updates will work. Absent this patch, "git submodule add" insists upon cloning the subdir from a repository at the given url, which is fine for adding an existing project in, but less useful when adding a new submodule from scratch to an existing project. The former functionality remains, and the clone is attempted if the subdir does not already exist as a valid git repo. Signed-off-by: Mark Levedahl <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2008-01-21git-submodule: fix subcommand parserJunio C Hamano
The subcommand parser of "git submodule" made its subcommand names reserved words. As a consequence, a command like this: $ git submodule add init update which is meant to add a submodule called 'init' at path 'update' was misinterpreted as a request to invoke more than one mutually incompatible subcommands and incorrectly rejected. This patch fixes the issue by stopping the subcommand parsing at the first subcommand word, to allow the sample command line above to work as expected. It also introduces the usual -- option disambiguator, so that a submodule at path '-foo' can be updated with $ git submodule update -- -foo without triggering an "unrecognized option -foo" error.

It is resolved into an absolute url by appending it to the parent project's url when the information is written to .git/config (i.e., during submodule add for the originator, and submodule init for a downstream recipient).

It happens not to be obvious to some BSD shells, either, but that's because they are not POSIX-compliant. In most cases, this has been replaced by a straight condition using "test". "case" has the advantage of being faster than "test" on vintage shells where "test" is not a builtin.
