2005-09-15Retire info/rev-cacheJunio C Hamano
It was one of those things that were well intentioned but did not turn out to be useful in practice. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2005-08-01[PATCH] Fix sparse warningsLinus Torvalds
A few sparse warnings have crept in again since I checked last time: undeclared variables with global scope. Fix them by marking the private variables properly "static". Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2005-07-30[PATCH] mmap error handlingPavel Roskin
I have reviewed all occurrences of mmap() in git and fixed three types of errors/defects: 1) The result is not checked. 2) The file descriptor is closed if mmap() succeeds, but not when it fails. 3) Various casts applied to -1 are used instead of MAP_FAILED, which is specifically defined to check mmap() return value. [jc: This is a second round of Pavel's patch. He fixed up the problem that close() potentially clobbering the errno from mmap, which the first round had.] Signed-off-by: Pavel Roskin <proski@gnu.org> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2005-07-24[PATCH] Add update-server-info.Junio C Hamano
The git-update-server-info command prepares informational files to help clients discover the contents of a repository, and pull from it via a dumb transport protocols. Currently, the following files are produced. - The $repo/info/refs file lists the name of heads and tags available in the $repo/refs/ directory, along with their SHA1. This can be used by git-ls-remote command running on the client side. - The $repo/info/rev-cache file describes the commit ancestry reachable from references in the $repo/refs/ directory. This file is in an append-only binary format to make the server side friendly to rsync mirroring scheme, and can be read by git-show-rev-cache command. - The $repo/objects/info/pack file lists the name of the packs available, the interdependencies among them, and the head commits and tags contained in them. Along with the other two files, this is designed to help clients to make smart pull decisions. The git-receive-pack command is changed to invoke it at the end, so just after a push to a public repository finishes via "git push", the server info is automatically updated. In addition, building of the rev-cache file can be done by a standalone git-build-rev-cache command separately.
