2010-09-27remote-helpers: build in platform independent directoryMichael J Gruber
The build directory which is used by distutils depends on the platform (e.g. build/lib on Fedora 13, build/lib.linux-i686-2.6 on Ubuntu 9.04). But expects to find the build in build/lib which can cause to fail early. Override distutils' choice so that the build is always in build/lib.

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.

2010-04-01remote-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 <>
2010-03-24Correct references to /usr/bin/python which does not exist on FreeBSDR. Tyler Ballance
On FreeBSD, Python does not ship as part of the base system but is available via the ports system, which install the binary in /usr/local/bin. Signed-off-by: R. Tyler Ballance <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2009-11-24Add Python support library for remote helpersSverre Rabbelier
This patch introduces parts of a Python package called "git_remote_helpers" containing the building blocks for remote helpers written in Python. No actual remote helpers are part of this patch, this patch only includes the common basics needed to start writing such helpers. The patch includes the necessary Makefile additions to build and install the git_remote_helpers Python package along with the rest of Git. This patch is based on Johan Herland's git_remote_cvs patch and has been improved by the following contributions: - David Aguilar: Lots of Python coding style fixes - David Aguilar: DESTDIR support in Makefile Cc: David Aguilar <> Cc: Johan Herland <> Signed-off-by: Sverre Rabbelier <> Signed-off-by: Johan Herland <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
