2020-04-30shallow: extract a header file for shallow-related functionsTaylor Blau
There are many functions in commit.h that are more related to shallow repositories than they are to any sort of generic commit machinery. Likely this began when there were only a few shallow-related functions, and commit.h seemed a reasonable enough place to put them. But, now there are a good number of shallow-related functions, and placing them all in 'commit.h' doesn't make sense. This patch extracts a 'shallow.h', which takes all of the declarations from 'commit.h' for functions which already exist in 'shallow.c'. We will bring the remaining shallow-related functions defined in 'commit.c' in a subsequent patch. For now, move only the ones that already are implemented in 'shallow.c', and update the necessary includes. Signed-off-by: Taylor Blau <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

Trace2 enhancement to allow logging of the environment variables. * js/trace2-env-vars: trace2: teach Git to log environment variables
2020-03-23trace2: teach Git to log environment variablesJosh Steadmon
Via trace2, Git can already log interesting config parameters (see the trace2_cmd_list_config() function). However, this can grant an incomplete picture because many config parameters also allow overrides via environment variables. To allow for more complete logs, we add a new trace2_cmd_list_env_vars() function and supporting implementation, modeled after the pre-existing config param logging implementation.

2020-03-05stash: remove the stash.useBuiltin settingThomas Gummerer
Remove the stash.useBuiltin setting which was added as an escape hatch to disable the builtin version of stash first released with Git 2.22. Carrying the legacy version is a maintenance burden, and has in fact become out of date failing a test since the 2.23 release, without anyone noticing until now. So users would be getting a hint to fall back to a potentially buggy version of the tool. We used to shell out to git config to get the useBuiltin configuration to avoid changing any global state before spawning legacy-stash. However that is no longer necessary, so just use the 'git_config' function to get the setting instead. Similar to what we've done in d03ebd411c ("rebase: remove the rebase.useBuiltin setting", 2019-03-18), where we remove the corresponding setting for rebase, we leave the documentation in place, so people can refer back to it when searching for it online, and so we can refer to it in the commit message.

2019-11-22sparse-checkout: create builtin with 'list' subcommandDerrick Stolee
The sparse-checkout feature is mostly hidden to users, as its only documentation is supplementary information in the docs for 'git read-tree'. In addition, users need to know how to edit the .git/info/sparse-checkout file with the right patterns, then run the appropriate 'git read-tree -mu HEAD' command. Keeping the working directory in sync with the sparse-checkout file requires care. Begin an effort to make the sparse-checkout feature a porcelain feature by creating a new 'git sparse-checkout' builtin. This builtin will be the preferred mechanism for manipulating the sparse-checkout file and syncing the working directory. The documentation provided is adapted from the "git read-tree" documentation with a few edits for clarity in the new context. Extra sections are added to hint toward a future change to a more restricted pattern set. Helped-by: Elijah Newren <> Signed-off-by: Derrick Stolee <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2019-09-20git: use COPY_ARRAY and MOVE_ARRAY in handle_alias()René Scharfe
Use the macro COPY_ARRAY to copy array elements and MOVE_ARRAY to do the same for moving them backwards in an array with potential overlap. The result is shorter and safer, as it infers the element type automatically and does a (very) basic type compatibility check for its first two arguments. These cases were missed by Coccinelle and contrib/coccinelle/array.cocci because the type of the elements is "const char *", not "char *", and the rules in the semantic patch cautiously insist on the sizeof operator being used on exactly the same type to avoid generating transformations that introduce subtle bugs into tricky code.

2019-07-29git: avoid calling aliased builtins via their dashed formJohannes Schindelin
This is one of the few places where Git violates its own deprecation of the dashed form. It is not necessary, either. As of 595d59e2b53 (git.c: ignore pager.* when launching builtin as dashed external, 2017-08-02), Git wants to ignore the pager.* config setting when expanding aliases.

2019-06-21env--helper: new undocumented builtin wrapping git_env_*()Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
We have many GIT_TEST_* variables that accept a <boolean> because they're implemented in C, and then some that take <non-empty?> because they're implemented at least partially in shellscript. Add a helper that wraps git_env_bool() and git_env_ulong() as the first step in fixing this. This isn't being added as a test-tool mode because some of these are used outside the test suite. Part of what this tool does can be done via a trick with "git config" added in 83d842dc8c ("tests: turn on network daemon tests by default", 2014-02-10) for test_tristate(), i.e.: git -c magic.variable="$1" config --bool magic.variable 2>/dev/null But as subsequent changes will show being able to pass along the default value makes all the difference, and we'll be able to replace test_tristate() itself with that. The --type=bool option will be used by subsequent patches, but not --type=ulong. I figured it was easy enough to add it & test for it so I left it in so we'd have wrappers for both git_env_*() functions, and to have a template to make it obvious how we'd add --type=int etc. if it's needed in the future.

2019-05-07checkout: split part of it to new command 'restore'Nguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy
Previously the switching branch business of 'git checkout' becomes a new command 'switch'. This adds the restore command for the checking out paths path. Similar to git-switch, a new man page is added to describe what the command will become. The implementation will be updated shortly to match the man page. A couple main differences from 'git checkout <paths>': - 'restore' by default will only update worktree. This matters more when --source is specified ('checkout <tree> <paths>' updates both worktree and index). - 'restore --staged' can be used to restore the index. This command overlaps with 'git reset <paths>'. - both worktree and index could also be restored at the same time (from a tree) when both --staged and --worktree are specified. This overlaps with 'git checkout <tree> <paths>' - default source for restoring worktree and index is the index and HEAD respectively. A different (tree) source could be specified as with --source (*). - when both index and worktree are restored, --source must be specified since the default source for these two individual targets are different (**) - --no-overlay is enabled by default, if an entry is missing in the source, restoring means deleting the entry (*) I originally went with --from instead of --source. I still think --from is a better name. The short option -f however is already taken by force. And I do think short option is good to have, e.g. to write -s@ or -s@^ instead of --source=HEAD. (**) If you sit down and think about it, moving worktree's source from the index to HEAD makes sense, but nobody is really thinking it through when they type the commands.

2019-04-19Turn `git serve` into a test helperJohannes Schindelin
The `git serve` built-in was introduced in ed10cb952d31 (serve: introduce git-serve, 2018-03-15) as a backend to serve Git protocol v2, probably originally intended to be spawned by `git upload-pack`. However, in the version that the protocol v2 patches made it into core Git, `git upload-pack` calls the `serve()` function directly instead of spawning `git serve`; The only reason in life for `git serve` to survive as a built-in command is to provide a way to test the protocol v2 functionality. Meaning that it does not even have to be a built-in that is installed with end-user facing Git installations, but it can be a test helper instead. Let's make it so.

The good old "git checkout" command is still here and will be until all (or most of users) are sick of it. See the new man page for the final design of switch.

2019-03-21git: read local config in --list-cmdsJeff King
Normally code that is checking config before we've decided to do setup_git_directory() would use read_early_config(), which uses discover_git_directory() to tentatively see if we're in a repo, and if so to add it to the config sequence. But list_cmds() uses the caching configset mechanism which rightly does not use read_early_config(), because it has no idea if it's being called early.

2019-02-22trace2: create new combined trace facilityJeff Hostetler
Create a new unified tracing facility for git. The eventual intent is to replace the current trace_printf* and trace_performance* routines with a unified set of git_trace2* routines. In addition to the usual printf-style API, trace2 provides higer-level event verbs with fixed-fields allowing structured data to be written. This makes post-processing and analysis easier for external tools. Trace2 defines 3 output targets. These are set using the environment variables "GIT_TR2", "GIT_TR2_PERF", and "GIT_TR2_EVENT". These may be set to "1" or to an absolute pathname (just like the current GIT_TRACE). * GIT_TR2 is intended to be a replacement for GIT_TRACE and logs command summary data. * GIT_TR2_PERF is intended as a replacement for GIT_TRACE_PERFORMANCE. It extends the output with columns for the command process, thread, repo, absolute and relative elapsed times. It reports events for child process start/stop, thread start/stop, and per-thread function nesting. * GIT_TR2_EVENT is a new structured format. It writes event data as a series of JSON records.

Most git commands respond to -h anywhere in the command line, or at least as a first and lone argument, by printing the usage information. For aliases, we can provide a little more information that might be useful in interpreting/understanding the following output by prepending a line telling that the command is an alias, and for what. When one invokes a simple alias, such as "cp = cherry-pick" with -h, this results in $ git cp -h 'cp' is aliased to 'cherry-pick' usage: git cherry-pick [<options>] <commit-ish>... ... When the alias consists of more than one word, this provides the additional benefit of informing the user which options are implicit in using the alias, e.g. with "cp = cherry-pick -n": $ git cp -h 'cp' is aliased to 'cherry-pick -n' usage: git cherry-pick [<options>] <commit-ish>... ... For shell commands, we cannot know how it responds to -h, but printing this line to stderr should not hurt, and can help in figuring out what is happening in a case like $ git sc -h 'sc' is aliased to '!somecommand' somecommand: invalid option '-h' Suggested-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Rasmus Villemoes <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2018-09-17alias: add support for aliases of an aliasTim Schumacher
Aliases can only contain non-alias git commands and their arguments, not other user-defined aliases. Resolving further (nested) aliases is prevented by breaking the loop after the first alias was processed. Git then fails with a command-not-found error. Allow resolving nested aliases by not breaking the loop in run_argv() after the first alias was processed. Instead, continue the loop until `handle_alias()` fails, which means that there are no further aliases that can be processed. Prevent looping aliases by storing substituted commands in `cmd_list` and checking if a command has been substituted previously. While we're at it, fix a styling issue just below the added code.

2018-08-13Introduce `range-diff` to compare iterations of a topic branchJohannes Schindelin
This command does not do a whole lot so far, apart from showing a usage that is oddly similar to that of `git tbdiff`. And for a good reason: the next commits will turn `range-branch` into a full-blown replacement for `tbdiff`. At this point, we ignore tbdiff's color options, as they will all be implemented later using diff_options. Since f318d739159 ( export all commands to command-list.h, 2018-05-10), every new command *requires* a man page to build right away, so let's also add a blank man page, too.

2018-08-06rebase: start implementing it as a builtinPratik Karki
This commit imitates the strategy that was used to convert the difftool to a builtin. We start by renaming the shell script `` to `` and introduce a `builtin/rebase.c` that simply executes the shell script version, unless the config setting `rebase.useBuiltin` is set to `true`. The motivation behind this is to rewrite all the functionality of the shell script version in the aforementioned `rebase.c`, one by one and be able to conveniently test new features by configuring `rebase.useBuiltin`. In the original difftool conversion, if sane_execvp() that attempts to run the legacy scripted version returned with non-negative status, the command silently exited without doing anything with success, but sane_execvp() should not return with non-negative status in the first place, so we use die() to notice such an abnormal case. We intentionally avoid reading the config directly to avoid messing up the GIT_* environment variables when we need to fall back to exec()ing the shell script. The test of builtin rebase can be done by `git -c rebase.useBuiltin=true rebase ...` Signed-off-by: Pratik Karki <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
