I've pushed out all of what has been in the proposed updates branch, along with documentation updates.
Many changes all over: - pulling from packed repository. - cvsimport. - documentation coverage. - usability. - terminology clarification. - hooks for updates and commits. - updated gitk. - multi-head push, fetch, pull, octopus merge. - faster merge-base. - git from subdirectories. - build procedure cleanups. Have fun. What to expect after 0.99.5 =========================== This is written in a form of to-do list for me, so if I say "accept patch", it means I do not currently plan to do that myself. People interested in seeing it materialize please take a hint. Documentation ------------- * Accept patches from people who actually have done CVS migration and update the cvs-migration documentation. Link the documentation from the main git.txt page. * Update the SubmittingPatches document to add MUA specific hints on how to disable unwanted MIME and flowed-text by collecting past list postings. Accept patches from people who was hit by shiny blue bat to update the same. * Talk about using rsync just once at the beginning when initializing a remote repository so that local packs do not need to be expanded. I personally do not think we need tool support for this. * Update tutorial to cover shared repository style a bit more, maybe with a toy project that involves two or three repositories. * Update tutorial to cover setting up repository hooks to do common tasks. * Get help to properly use asciidoc in tutorial. * Maybe justify and demonstrate an Octopus in the tutorial. Add it to the glossary. Technical (heavier) ------------------- * Tony Luck reported an unfortunate glitch in the 3-way merge. Encourage discussions to come up with a not-so-expensive way to catch the kind of ambiguities that led to his misery. Technical (milder) ------------------ * When the branch head pointed by $GIT_DIR/HEAD changes while the index file and working tree are looking the other way (e.g. somebody pushed into your repository, or you ran "git fetch" to update the ref your working tree is on), "git checkout" without -f gets confused. Figure out a good way to handle this. * "git commit -m" should work for initial commits and perhaps merge commits as well. Warning about merge is still a good thing to do, while -m is useful in scripted non-interactive use, so we need to be careful. * Encourage concrete proposals to commit log message templates we discussed some time ago. * Bug Ryan and work with him to update send-email easier to use. * Look at portability fixes from Jason Riedy http://www.cs.berkeley.edu/~ejr/gits/git.git#portable * Accept patches to cause "read-tree -u" delete a directory when it makes it empty. * Perhaps accept patches to introduce the concept of "patch flow expressed as ref mappings" Josef has been advocating about. * MIMEified applymbox to grok B and Q encodings in headers and turn them into UTF-8; unwrap QP; explode multipart. * "git cherry-pick" that applies the patch an existing commit introduces in its ancestry chain, possibly using the 3-way merge machinery; update rebase using the cherry-pick command. Carl's redo/undo might fall out naturally from this. * A tool to detect, show and prune already merged topic branches. * Perhaps "git branch -d" to delete a branch. * Enhance "git repack" to not always use --all; this would be handy if the repository contains wagging heads like "pu" in git.git repository. * Remove "git clone-dumb-http". - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to [EMAIL PROTECTED] More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
