2011-12-12Revert "reset: Make reset remove the sequencer state"Jonathan Nieder
This reverts commit 95eb88d8ee588d89b4f06d2753ed4d16ab13b39f, which was a UI experiment that did not reflect how "git reset" actually gets used. The reversion also fixes a test, indicated in the patch.

2011-11-23revert --abort: do not leave behind useless sequencer-old directoryJonathan Nieder
The "git cherry-pick --abort" command currently renames the .git/sequencer directory to .git/sequencer-old instead of removing it on success due to an accident. cherry-pick --abort is designed to work in three steps: 1) find which commit to roll back to 2) call "git reset --merge <commit>" to move to that commit 3) remove the .git/sequencer directory But the careless author forgot step 3 entirely. The only reason the command worked anyway is that "git reset --merge <commit>" renames the .git/sequencer directory as a secondary effect --- after moving to <commit>, or so the logic goes, it is unlikely but possible that the caller of git reset wants to continue the series of cherry-picks that was in progress, so git renames the sequencer state to .git/sequencer-old to be helpful while allowing the cherry-pick to be resumed if the caller did not want to end the sequence after all. By running "git cherry-pick --abort", the operator has clearly indicated that she is not planning to continue cherry-picking. Remove the (renamed) .git/sequencer directory as intended all along.

2011-11-22revert: rename --reset option to --quitJonathan Nieder
The option to "git cherry-pick" and "git revert" to discard the sequencer state introduced by v1.7.8-rc0~141^2~6 (revert: Introduce --reset to remove sequencer state, 2011-08-04) has a confusing name. Change it now, while we still have the time. The new name for "cherry-pick, please get out of my way, since I've long forgotten about the sequence of commits I was cherry-picking when you wrote that old .git/sequencer directory" is --quit. Mnemonic: this is analagous to quiting a program the user is no longer using --- we just want to get out of the multiple-command cherry-pick procedure and not to reset HEAD or rewind any other old state. The "--reset" option is kept as a synonym to minimize the impact. We might consider dropping it for simplicity in a separate patch, though. Adjust documentation and tests to use the newly preferred name (--quit) instead of --reset. While at it, let's clarify the short descriptions of these operations in "-h" output. Before: --reset forget the current operation --continue continue the current operation After: --quit end revert or cherry-pick sequence --continue resume revert or cherry-pick sequence Noticed-by: Phil Hord <phil.hord@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <jrnieder@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2011-08-08reset: Make reset remove the sequencer stateRamkumar Ramachandra
Years of muscle memory have trained users to use "git reset --hard" to remove the branch state after any sort operation. Make it also remove the sequencer state to facilitate this established workflow: $ git cherry-pick foo..bar ... conflict encountered ... $ git reset --hard # Oops, I didn't mean that $ git cherry-pick quux..bar ... cherry-pick succeeded ... Guard against accidental removal of the sequencer state by providing one level of "undo". In the first "reset" invocation, ".git/sequencer" is moved to ".git/sequencer-old"; it is completely removed only in the second invocation.
