2018-08-21tests: use 'test_must_be_empty' instead of '! test -s'SZEDER Gábor
Using 'test_must_be_empty' is preferable to '! test -s', because it gives a helpful error message if the given file is unexpectedly not empty, while the latter remains completely silent. Furthermore, it also catches cases when the given file unexpectedly does not exist at all. This patch was basically created by: sed -i -e 's/! test -s/test_must_be_empty/' t[0-9]*.sh with the following notable exceptions: - The '! test -s' check in '.gitmodules ignore=dirty suppresses submodules with untracked content' in '' is left as-is, because it's bogus and, therefore, it's subject of a dedicated patch. - The '! test -s' checks in '' and '' are immediately preceeded by a 'test -f' to ensure that the files exist in the first place. 'test_must_be_empty' ensures that as well, so those 'test -f' commands are removed as well. Signed-off-by: SZEDER Gábor <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2018-03-29submodule: fixup nested submodules after moving the submoduleStefan Beller
connect_work_tree_and_git_dir is used to connect a submodule worktree with its git directory and vice versa after events that require a reconnection such as moving around the working tree. As submodules can have nested submodules themselves, we'd also want to fix the nested submodules when asked to. Add an option to recurse into the nested submodules and connect them as well. As submodules are identified by their name (which determines their git directory in relation to their superproject's git directory) internally and by their path in the working tree of the superproject, we need to make sure that the mapping of name <-> path is kept intact. We can do that in the git-mv command by writing out the gitmodules file first and then forcing a reload of the submodule config machinery.

2016-04-19mv: allow moving nested submodulesStefan Beller
When directories are moved using `git mv` all files in the directory have been just moved, but no further action was taken on them. This was done by assigning the mode = WORKING_DIRECTORY to the files inside a moved directory. submodules however need to update their link to the git directory as well as updates to the .gitmodules file. By removing the condition of `mode != INDEX` (the remaining modes are BOTH and WORKING_DIRECTORY) for the required submodule actions, we perform these for submodules in a moved directory.

2016-01-07t/ use the $( ... ) construct for command substitutionElia Pinto
The Git CodingGuidelines prefer the $(...) construct for command substitution instead of using the backquotes `...`. The backquoted form is the traditional method for command substitution, and is supported by POSIX. However, all but the simplest uses become complicated quickly. In particular, embedded command substitutions and/or the use of double quotes require careful escaping with the backslash character.

2015-03-20t: use verbose instead of hand-rolled errorsJeff King
Many tests that predate the "verbose" helper function use a pattern like: test ... || { echo ... false } to give more verbose output. Using the helper, we can do this with a single line, and avoid a || which interacts badly with &&-chaining (besides fooling --chain-lint, we hit the error block no matter which command in the chain failed, so we may often show useless results). In most cases, the messages printed by "verbose" are equally good (in some cases better; t6006 accidentally redirects the message to a file!). The exception is t7001, whose output suffers slightly. However, it's still enough to show the user which part failed, given that we will have just printed the test script to stderr. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2014-10-15mv test: recreate mod/ directory instead of relying on stale copyJonathan Nieder
The tests for 'git mv moves a submodule' functionality often run commands like git mv sub mod/sub to move a submodule into a subdirectory. Just like plain /bin/mv, this is supposed to succeed if the mod/ parent directory exists and fail if it doesn't exist. Usually these tests mkdir the parent directory beforehand, but some instead rely on it being left behind by previous tests. More precisely, when 'git reset --hard' tries to move to a state where mod/sub is not present any more, it would perform the following operations: rmdir("mod/sub") rmdir("mod") The first fails with ENOENT because the test script removed mod/sub with "rm -rf" already, so 'reset --hard' doesn't bother to move on to the second, and the mod/ directory is kept around. Better to explicitly remove and re-create the mod/ directory so later tests don't have to depend on the directory left behind by the earlier ones at all (making it easier to rearrange or skip some tests in the file or to tweak 'reset --hard' behavior without breaking unrelated tests). Noticed while testing a patch that fixes the reset --hard behavior described above. Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <> Reviewed-by: Ronnie Sahlberg <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

Since 11502468 and 04c1ee57 (both first appearing in v1.8.5), the t7001-mv test has used "cp -a" to perform a copy in several of the tests.

2013-10-14mv: Fix spurious warning when moving a file in presence of submodulesJens Lehmann
In commit 0656781fa "git mv" learned to update the submodule path in the .gitmodules file when moving a submodule in the work tree. But since that commit update_path_in_gitmodules() gets called no matter if we moved a submodule or a regular file, which is wrong and leads to a bogus warning when moving a regular file in a repo containing a .gitmodules file: warning: Could not find section in .gitmodules where path=<filename> Fix that by only calling update_path_in_gitmodules() when moving a submodule. To achieve that, we introduce the special SUBMODULE_WITH_GITDIR define to distinguish the cases where we also have to connect work tree and git directory from those where we only need to update the .gitmodules setting. A test for submodules using a .git directory together with a .gitmodules file has been added to t7001. Even though newer git versions will always use a gitfile when cloning submodules, repositories cloned with older git versions will still use this layout.

2013-08-06mv: update the path entry in .gitmodules for moved submodulesJens Lehmann
Currently using "git mv" on a submodule moves the submodule's work tree in that of the superproject. But the submodule's path setting in .gitmodules is left untouched, which is now inconsistent with the work tree and makes git commands that rely on the proper path -> name mapping (like status and diff) behave strangely. Let "git mv" help here by not only moving the submodule's work tree but also updating the "submodule.<submodule name>.path" setting from the .gitmodules file and stage both. This doesn't happen when no .gitmodules file is found and only issues a warning when it doesn't have a section for this submodule. This is because the user might just use plain gitlinks without the .gitmodules file or has already updated the path setting by hand before issuing the "git mv" command (in which case the warning reminds him that mv would have done that for him). Only when .gitmodules is found and contains merge conflicts the mv command will fail and tell the user to resolve the conflict before trying again. Also extend the man page to inform the user about this new feature. Signed-off-by: Jens Lehmann <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2013-07-30mv: move submodules using a gitfileJens Lehmann
When moving a submodule which uses a gitfile to point to the git directory stored in .git/modules/<name> of the superproject two changes must be made to make the submodule work: the .git file and the core.worktree setting must be adjusted to point from work tree to git directory and back. Achieve that by remembering which submodule uses a gitfile by storing the result of read_gitfile() of each submodule. If that is not NULL the new function connect_work_tree_and_git_dir() is called after renaming the submodule's work tree which updates the two settings to the new values. Extend the man page to inform the user about that feature (and while at it change the description to not talk about a script anymore, as mv is a builtin for quite some time now).

2013-07-30mv: move submodules together with their work treesJens Lehmann
Currently the attempt to use "git mv" on a submodule errors out with: fatal: source directory is empty, source=<src>, destination=<dest> The reason is that mv searches for the submodule with a trailing slash in the index, which it doesn't find (because it is stored without a trailing slash). As it doesn't find any index entries inside the submodule it claims the directory would be empty even though it isn't. Fix that by searching for the name without a trailing slash and continue if it is a submodule. Then rename() will move the submodule work tree just like it moves a file.

2009-03-22Use prerequisite tags to skip tests that depend on symbolic linksJohannes Sixt
Many tests depend on that symbolic links work. This introduces a check that sets the prerequisite tag SYMLINKS if the file system supports symbolic links. Since so many tests have to check for this prerequisite, we do the check in, so that we don't need to repeat the test in many scripts. To check for 'ln -s' failures, you can use a FAT partition on Linux: $ mkdosfs -C git-on-fat 1000000 $ sudo mount -o loop,uid=j6t,gid=users,shortname=winnt git-on-fat /mnt Clone git to /mnt and $ GIT_SKIP_TESTS='t0001.1[34] t0010 t1301 t403[34] t4129.[47] t5701.7 t7701.3 t9100 t9101.26 t9119 t9124.[67] t9200.10 t9600.6' \ make test (These additionally skipped tests depend on POSIX permissions that FAT on Linux does not provide.)

2008-07-27git-mv: Keep moved index entries inactPetr Baudis
The rewrite of git-mv from a shell script to a builtin was perhaps a little too straightforward: the git add and git rm queues were emulated directly, which resulted in a rather complicated code and caused an inconsistent behaviour when moving dirty index entries; git mv would update the entry based on working tree state, except in case of overwrites, where the new entry would still have sha1 of the old file. This patch introduces rename_index_entry_at() into the index toolkit, which will rename an entry while removing any entries the new entry might render duplicate. This is then used in git mv instead of all the file queues, resulting in a major simplification of the code and an inevitable change in git mv -n output format. Also the code used to refuse renaming overwriting symlink with a regular file and vice versa; there is no need for that. A few new tests have been added to the testsuite to reflect this change.

2008-02-02Sane use of test_expect_failureJunio C Hamano
Originally, test_expect_failure was designed to be the opposite of test_expect_success, but this was a bad decision. Most tests run a series of commands that leads to the single command that needs to be tested, like this: test_expect_{success,failure} 'test title' ' setup1 && setup2 && setup3 && what is to be tested ' And expecting a failure exit from the whole sequence misses the point of writing tests. Your setup$N that are supposed to succeed may have failed without even reaching what you are trying to test. The only valid use of test_expect_failure is to check a trivial single command that is expected to fail, which is a minority in tests of Porcelain-ish commands. This large-ish patch rewrites all uses of test_expect_failure to use test_expect_success and rewrites the condition of what is tested, like this: test_expect_success 'test title' ' setup1 && setup2 && setup3 && ! this command should fail ' test_expect_failure is redefined to serve as a reminder that that test *should* succeed but due to a known breakage in git it currently does not pass. So if git-foo command should create a file 'bar' but you discovered a bug that it doesn't, you can write a test like this: test_expect_failure 'git-foo should create bar' ' rm -f bar && git foo && test -f bar ' This construct acts similar to test_expect_success, but instead of reporting "ok/FAIL" like test_expect_success does, the outcome is reported as "FIXED/still broken".
