2018-09-21rerere.c: remove implicit dependency on the_indexNguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy
The reason rerere(), rerere_forget() and rerere_remaining() take a struct repository instead of struct index_state is not obvious from the patch: Deep in update_paths() and find_conflict(), hold_locked_index() and read_index() are called. These functions assumes the index path at $GIT_DIR/index which is not always true when you take an arbitrary index state. Taking a repository will allow us to point to the right index path later when we replace them with repo_ versions. Signed-off-by: Nguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2016-03-15rerere: allow multiple variants to existJunio C Hamano
The shape of the conflict in a path determines the conflict ID. The preimage and postimage pair that was recorded for the conflict ID previously may or may not replay well for the conflict we just saw. Currently, we punt when the previous resolution does not cleanly replay, but ideally we should then be able to record the currently conflicted path by assigning a new 'variant', and then record the resolution the user is going to make. Introduce a mechanism to have more than one variant for a given conflict ID; we do not actually assign any variant other than 0th variant yet at this step. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2016-02-08rerere: split conflict ID furtherJunio C Hamano
The plan is to keep assigning the backward compatible conflict ID based on the hash of the (normalized) text of conflicts, keep using that conflict ID as the directory name under $GIT_DIR/rr-cache/, but allow each conflicted path to use a separate "variant" to record resolutions, i.e. having more than one <preimage,postimage> pairs under $GIT_DIR/rr-cache/$ID/ directory. As the first step in that direction, separate the shared "conflict ID" out of the rerere_id structure. The plan is to keep information per $ID in rerere_dir, that can be shared among rerere_id that is per conflicted path. When we are done with rerere(), which can be directly called from other programs like "git apply", "git commit" and "git merge", the shared rerere_dir structures can be freed entirely, so they are not reference-counted and they are not freed when we release rerere_id's that reference them.

2015-09-01rerere: release lockfile in non-writing functionsJeff King
There's a bug in builtin/am.c in which we take a lock on MERGE_RR recursively. But rather than fix am.c, this patch fixes the confusing interface from rerere.c that caused the bug. Read on for the gory details. The setup_rerere() function both reads the existing MERGE_RR file, and takes MERGE_RR.lock. In the rerere() and rerere_forget() functions, we end up in write_rr(), which will then commit the lock file. But for functions like rerere_clear() that do not write to MERGE_RR, we expect the caller to have handled setup_rerere(). That caller would then need to release the lockfile, but it can't; the lock struct is local to rerere.c. For builtin/rerere.c, this is OK. We run a single rerere operation and then exit immediately, which has the side effect of rolling back the lockfile. But in builtin/am.c, this is actively wrong. If we run "git am -3 --skip", we call setup-rerere twice without releasing the lock: 1. The "--skip" causes us to call am_rerere_clear(), which calls setup_rerere(), but never drops the lock. 2. We then proceed to the next patch. 3. The "--3way" may cause us to call rerere() to handle conflicts in that patch, but we are already holding the lock. The lockfile code dies with: BUG: prepare_tempfile_object called for active object We could fix this by having rerere_clear() call rollback_lock_file(). But it feels a bit odd for it to roll back a lockfile that it did not itself take. So let's simplify the interface further, and handle setup_rerere in the function itself, taking away the question from the caller over whether they need to do so. We can give rerere_gc() the same treatment, as well (even though it doesn't have any callers besides builtin/rerere.c at this point). Note that these functions don't take flags from their callers to pass along to setup_rerere; that's OK, because the flags would not be meaningful for what they are doing. Both of those functions need to hold the lock because even though they do not write to MERGE_RR, they are still writing and should be protected from a simultaneous "rerere" run. But rerere_remaining(), "rerere diff", and "rerere status" are all read-only operations. They want to setup_rerere(), but do not care about taking the lock in the first place. Since our update of MERGE_RR is the usual atomic rename done by commit_lock_file, they can just do a lockless read. For that, we teach setup_rerere a READONLY flag to avoid the lock. As a bonus, this pushes builtin/rerere.c's setup_rerere call closer to the functions that use it. Which means that "git rerere totally-bogus-command" will no longer silently exit(0) in a repository without rerere enabled. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2015-07-24rerere: use "struct rerere_id" instead of "char *" for conflict IDJunio C Hamano
This gives a thin abstraction between the conflict ID that is a hash value obtained by inspecting the conflicts and the name of the directory under $GIT_DIR/rr-cache/, in which the previous resolution is recorded to be replayed. The plan is to make sure that the presence of the directory does not imply the presense of a previous resolution and vice-versa, and later allow us to have more than one pair of <preimage, postimage> for a given conflict ID.

2011-02-16rerere "remaining"Martin von Zweigbergk
After "rerere" resolves conflicts by reusing old resolution, there would be three kinds of paths with conflict in the index: * paths that have been resolved in the working tree by rerere; * paths that need further work whose resolution could be recorded; * paths that need resolving that rerere won't help. When the user wants a list of paths that need hand-resolving, output from "rerere status" does not help, as it shows only the second category, but the paths in the third category still needs work (rerere only makes sense for regular files that have both our side and their side, and does not help other kinds of conflicts, e.g. "we modified, they deleted"). The new subcommand "rerere remaining" can be used to show both. As opposed to "rerere status", this subcommand also skips printing paths that have been added to the index, since these paths are already resolved and are no longer "remaining". Initial patch provided by Junio. Refactored and modified to skip resolved paths by Martin. Commit message mostly by Junio.

After you find out an earlier resolution you told rerere to use was a mismerge, there is no easy way to clear it. A new subcommand "forget" can be used to tell git to forget a recorded resolution, so that you can redo the merge from scratch. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2009-02-15rerere: remove duplicated functionsSZEDER Gábor
Both rerere.c and builtin-rerere.c define the static functions rr_path() and has_resolution() the exact same way. To eliminate this code duplication this patch turns the functions in rerere.c non-static, and makes builtin-rerere.c use them. Also, since this puts these two functions into the global namespace, rename them to rerere_path() and has_rerere_resolution(), respectively, and rename their "name" parameter to "hex", because it better reflects what that parameter actually is.

This patch moves rerere()-related functions into a newly created rerere.c file.
