2019-10-24repo-settings: read an int for index.versionDerrick Stolee
Several config options were combined into a repo_settings struct in ds/feature-macros, including a move of the "index.version" config setting in 7211b9e (repo-settings: consolidate some config settings, 2019-08-13). Unfortunately, that file looked like a lot of boilerplate and what is clearly a factor of copy-paste overload, the config setting is parsed with repo_config_ge_bool() instead of repo_config_get_int(). This means that a setting "index.version=4" would not register correctly and would revert to the default version of 3. I caught this while incorporating v2.24.0-rc0 into the VFS for Git codebase, where we really care that the index is in version 4. This was not caught by the codebase because the version checks placed in did not test the "basic" scenario enough. Here, we modify the test to include these normal settings to not be overridden by features.manyFiles or GIT_INDEX_VERSION. While the "default" version is 3, this is demoted to version 2 in do_write_index() when not necessary. Signed-off-by: Derrick Stolee <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2019-08-13repo-settings: create feature.manyFiles settingDerrick Stolee
The feature.manyFiles setting is suitable for repos with many files in the working directory. By setting index.version=4 and core.untrackedCache=true, commands such as 'git status' should improve. While adding this setting, modify the index version precedence tests to check how this setting overrides the default for index.version is unset.

2018-08-21tests: use 'test_must_be_empty' instead of 'test_cmp <empty> <out>'SZEDER Gábor
Using 'test_must_be_empty' is shorter and more idiomatic than >empty && test_cmp empty out as it saves the creation of an empty file. Furthermore, sometimes the expected empty file doesn't have such a descriptive name like 'empty', and its creation is far away from the place where it's finally used for comparison (e.g. in '', where two expected empty files are created in the 'setup' test, but are used only about 500 lines later). These cases were found by instrumenting 'test_cmp' to error out the test script when it's used to compare empty files, and then converted manually. Note that even after this patch there still remain a lot of cases where we use 'test_cmp' to check empty files: - Sometimes the expected output is not hard-coded in the test, but 'test_cmp' is used to ensure that two similar git commands produce the same output, and that output happens to be empty, e.g. the test 'submodule update --merge - ignores --merge for new submodules' in ''. - Repetitive common tasks, including preparing the expected results and running 'test_cmp', are often extracted into a helper function, and some of this helper's callsites expect no output. - For the same reason as above, the whole 'test_expect_success' block is within a helper function, e.g. in ''. - Or 'test_cmp' is invoked in a loop, e.g. the test 'cvs update (-p)' in ''.

2014-02-24read-cache: add index.version config variableThomas Gummerer
Add a config variable that allows setting the default index version when initializing a new index file. Similar to the GIT_INDEX_VERSION environment variable this only affects new index files. Signed-off-by: Thomas Gummerer <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2014-02-24introduce GIT_INDEX_VERSION environment variableThomas Gummerer
Respect a GIT_INDEX_VERSION environment variable, when a new index is initialized. Setting the environment variable will not cause existing index files to be converted to another format, but will only affect newly written index files. This can be used to initialize repositories with index-v4. Helped-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Thomas Gummerer <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
