2021-02-22http-fetch: allow custom index-pack argsJonathan Tan
This is the next step in teaching fetch-pack to pass its index-pack arguments when processing packfiles referenced by URIs. The "--keep" in fetch-pack.c will be replaced with a full message in a subsequent commit. Signed-off-by: Jonathan Tan <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2021-02-22http: allow custom index-pack argsJonathan Tan
Currently, when fetching, packfiles referenced by URIs are run through index-pack without any arguments other than --stdin and --keep, no matter what arguments are used for the packfile that is inline in the fetch response. As a preparation for ensuring that all packs (whether inline or not) use the same index-pack arguments, teach the http subsystem to allow custom index-pack arguments. http-fetch has been updated to use the new API. For now, it passes --keep alone instead of --keep with a process ID, but this is only temporary because http-fetch itself will be taught to accept index-pack parameters (instead of using a hardcoded constant) in a subsequent commit.

2020-07-30http-fetch: set up git directory before parsing pack hashesbrian m. carlson
In dd4b732df7 ("upload-pack: send part of packfile response as uri", 2020-06-10), the git http-fetch code learned how to take ac --packfile option. This option takes an argument, which is the name of a packfile hash, and parses it using parse_oid_hex. It does so before calling setup_git_directory. However, in a SHA-256 repository this fails to work, since we have not set the hash algorithm in use and parse_oid_hex fails as a consequence. To ensure that we can parse packfile hashes of the right length, let's set up the git directory before we start parsing arguments. Since we still want to allow the invocation of -h to print the help when we're not in a repository, gracefully handle us being outside of one and produce an error after argument parsing has finished.

2018-04-24walker: drop fields of `struct walker` which are always 1Martin Ågren
After the previous commit, both users of `struct walker` set `get_tree`, `get_history` and `get_all` to 1. Drop those fields and simplify the walker implementation accordingly. Let's hope that any out-of-tree users will not mind this change. They should notice that the compilation fails as they try to set these fields. (If they do not set them, note that `get_http_walker()` leaves them undefined, so the behavior will have been undefined all the time.) Signed-off-by: Martin Ågren <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2018-04-24http-fetch: make `-a` standard behaviourMartin Ågren
This is a follow-up to a6c786fce8 (Mark http-fetch without -a as deprecated, 2011-08-23). For more than six years, we have been warning when `-a` is not provided, and the documentation has been saying that `-a` will become the default. It is a bit unclear what "default" means here. There is no such thing as `http-fetch --no-a`. But according to my searches, no-one has been asking on the mailing list how they should silence the warning and prepare for overriding the flipped default. So let's assume that everybody is happy with `-a`. They should be, since not using it may break the repo in such a way that Git itself is unable to fix it. Always behave as if `-a` was given. Since `-a` implies `-c` (get commit objects) and `-t` (get trees), all three options are now unnecessary. Document all of these as historical artefacts that have no effect. Leave no-op code for handling these options in http-fetch.c. The options-handling is currently rather loose. If someone tightens it, we will not want these ignored options to accidentally turn into hard errors. Since `-a` was the only safe and sane usage and we have been pushing people towards it for a long time, refrain from warning when it is used "unnecessarily" now. Similarly, do not add anything scary-looking to the man-page about how it will be removed in the future. We can always do so later.

2016-07-01common-main: call git_setup_gettext()Jeff King
This should be part of every program, as otherwise users do not get translated error messages. However, some external commands forgot to do so (e.g., git-credential-store).

2016-07-01common-main: call git_extract_argv0_path()Jeff King
Every program which links against libgit.a must call this function, or risk hitting an assert() in system_path() that checks whether we have configured argv0_path (though only when RUNTIME_PREFIX is defined, so essentially only on Windows). Looking at the diff, you can see that putting it into the common main() saves us having to do it individually in each of the external commands. But what you can't see are the cases where we _should_ have been doing so, but weren't (e.g., git-credential-store, and all of the t/helper test programs). This has been an accident-waiting-to-happen for a long time, but wasn't triggered until recently because it involves one of those programs actually calling system_path(). That happened with git-credential-store in v2.8.0 with ae5f677 (lazily load core.sharedrepository, 2016-03-11). The program: - takes a lock file, which... - opens a tempfile, which... - calls adjust_shared_perm to fix permissions, which... - lazy-loads the config (as of ae5f677), which... - calls system_path() to find the location of /etc/gitconfig On systems with RUNTIME_PREFIX, this means credential-store reliably hits that assert() and cannot be used. We never noticed in the test suite, because we set GIT_CONFIG_NOSYSTEM there, which skips the system_path() lookup entirely. But if we were to tweak git_config() to find /etc/gitconfig even when we aren't going to open it, then the test suite shows multiple failures (for credential-store, and for some other test helpers). I didn't include that tweak here because it's way too specific to this particular call to be worth carrying around what is essentially dead code. The implementation is fairly straightforward, with one exception: there is exactly one caller (git.c) that actually cares about the result of the function, and not the side-effect of setting up argv0_path. We can accommodate that by simply replacing the value of argv[0] in the array we hand down to cmd_main(). Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2016-07-01add an extra level of indirection to main()Jeff King
There are certain startup tasks that we expect every git process to do. In some cases this is just to improve the quality of the program (e.g., setting up gettext()). In others it is a requirement for using certain functions in libgit.a (e.g., system_path() expects that you have called git_extract_argv0_path()). Most commands are builtins and are covered by the git.c version of main(). However, there are still a few external commands that use their own main(). Each of these has to remember to include the correct startup sequence, and we are not always consistent. Rather than just fix the inconsistencies, let's make this harder to get wrong by providing a common main() that can run this standard startup. We basically have two options to do this: - the compat/mingw.h file already does something like this by adding a #define that replaces the definition of main with a wrapper that calls mingw_startup(). The upside is that the code in each program doesn't need to be changed at all; it's rewritten on the fly by the preprocessor. The downside is that it may make debugging of the startup sequence a bit more confusing, as the preprocessor is quietly inserting new code. - the builtin functions are all of the form cmd_foo(), and git.c's main() calls them. This is much more explicit, which may make things more obvious to somebody reading the code. It's also more flexible (because of course we have to figure out _which_ cmd_foo() to call). The downside is that each of the builtins must define cmd_foo(), instead of just main(). This patch chooses the latter option, preferring the more explicit approach, even though it is more invasive. We introduce a new file common-main.c, with the "real" main. It expects to call cmd_main() from whatever other objects it is linked against. We link common-main.o against anything that links against libgit.a, since we know that such programs will need to do this setup. Note that common-main.o can't actually go inside libgit.a, as the linker would not pick up its main() function automatically (it has no callers). The rest of the patch is just adjusting all of the various external programs (mostly in t/helper) to use cmd_main(). I've provided a global declaration for cmd_main(), which means that all of the programs also need to match its signature. In particular, many functions need to switch to "const char **" instead of "char **" for argv. This effect ripples out to a few other variables and functions, as well. This makes the patch even more invasive, but the end result is much better. We should be treating argv strings as const anyway, and now all programs conform to the same signature (which also matches the way builtins are defined).

* ab/enable-i18n: i18n: add infrastructure for translating Git with gettext Conflicts: Makefile
2011-12-14http-push: enable "proactive auth"Jeff King
Before commit 986bbc08, git was proactive about asking for http passwords. It assumed that if you had a username in your URL, you would also want a password, and asked for it before making any http requests. However, this could interfere with the use of .netrc (see 986bbc08 for details). And it was also unnecessary, since the http fetching code had learned to recognize an HTTP 401 and prompt the user then. Furthermore, the proactive prompt could interfere with the usage of .netrc (see 986bbc08 for details). Unfortunately, the http push-over-DAV code never learned to recognize HTTP 401, and so was broken by this change. This patch does a quick fix of re-enabling the "proactive auth" strategy only for http-push, leaving the dumb http fetch and smart-http as-is.

2011-12-06i18n: add infrastructure for translating Git with gettextÆvar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
Change the skeleton implementation of i18n in Git to one that can show localized strings to users for our C, Shell and Perl programs using either GNU libintl or the Solaris gettext implementation. This new internationalization support is enabled by default. If gettext isn't available, or if Git is compiled with NO_GETTEXT=YesPlease, Git falls back on its current behavior of showing interface messages in English. When using the autoconf script we'll auto-detect if the gettext libraries are installed and act appropriately. This change is somewhat large because as well as adding a C, Shell and Perl i18n interface we're adding a lot of tests for them, and for those tests to work we need a skeleton PO file to actually test translations. A minimal Icelandic translation is included for this purpose. Icelandic includes multi-byte characters which makes it easy to test various edge cases, and it's a language I happen to understand. The rest of the commit message goes into detail about various sub-parts of this commit. = Installation Gettext .mo files will be installed and looked for in the standard $(prefix)/share/locale path. GIT_TEXTDOMAINDIR can also be set to override that, but that's only intended to be used to test Git itself. = Perl Perl code that's to be localized should use the new Git::I18n module. It imports a __ function into the caller's package by default. Instead of using the high level Locale::TextDomain interface I've opted to use the low-level (equivalent to the C interface) Locale::Messages module, which Locale::TextDomain itself uses. Locale::TextDomain does a lot of redundant work we don't need, and some of it would potentially introduce bugs. It tries to set the $TEXTDOMAIN based on package of the caller, and has its own hardcoded paths where it'll search for messages. I found it easier just to completely avoid it rather than try to circumvent its behavior. In any case, this is an issue wholly internal Git::I18N. Its guts can be changed later if that's deemed necessary. See <> for a further elaboration on this topic. = Shell Shell code that's to be localized should use the git-sh-i18n library. It's basically just a wrapper for the system's If isn't available we'll fall back on gettext(1) if it's available. The latter is available without the former on Solaris, which has its own non-GNU gettext implementation. We also need to emulate eval_gettext() there. If neither are present we'll use a dumb printf(1) fall-through wrapper. = About libcharset.h and langinfo.h We use libcharset to query the character set of the current locale if it's available. I.e. we'll use it instead of nl_langinfo if HAVE_LIBCHARSET_H is set. The GNU gettext manual recommends using langinfo.h's nl_langinfo(CODESET) to acquire the current character set, but on systems that have libcharset.h's locale_charset() using the latter is either saner, or the only option on those systems. GNU and Solaris have a nl_langinfo(CODESET), FreeBSD can use either, but MinGW and some others need to use libcharset.h's locale_charset() instead. =Credits This patch is based on work by Jeff Epler <> who did the initial Makefile / C work, and a lot of comments from the Git mailing list, including Jonathan Nieder, Jakub Narebski, Johannes Sixt, Erik Faye-Lund, Peter Krefting, Junio C Hamano, Thomas Rast and others.

2011-10-16http_init: accept separate URL parameterJeff King
The http_init function takes a "struct remote". Part of its initialization procedure is to look at the remote's url and grab some auth-related parameters. However, using the url included in the remote is: - wrong; the remote-curl helper may have a separate, unrelated URL (e.g., from remote.*.pushurl). Looking at the remote's configured url is incorrect. - incomplete; http-fetch doesn't have a remote, so passes NULL. So http_init never gets to see the URL we are actually going to use. - cumbersome; http-push has a similar problem to http-fetch, but actually builds a fake remote just to pass in the URL.

2006-08-17Do not use memcmp(sha1_1, sha1_2, 20) with hardcoded length.David Rientjes
Introduces global inline: hashcmp(const unsigned char *sha1, const unsigned char *sha2) Uses memcmp for comparison and returns the result based on the length of the hash name (a future runtime decision). Acked-by: Alex Riesen <> Signed-off-by: David Rientjes <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2006-08-11drop length argument of has_extensionRene Scharfe
As Fredrik points out the current interface of has_extension() is potentially confusing. Its parameters include both a nul-terminated string and a length-limited string. This patch drops the length argument, requiring two nul-terminated strings; all callsites are updated. I checked that all of them indeed provide nul-terminated strings. Filenames need to be nul-terminated anyway if they are to be passed to open() etc. The performance penalty of the additional strlen() is negligible compared to the system calls which inevitably surround has_extension() calls. Additionally, change has_extension() to use size_t inside instead of int, as that is the exact type strlen() returns and memcmp() expects.
