The only thing that using diff-files doesn't address is the
rerere support in mergetool where it processes the files in
the order specified by "git rerere remaining". This is why I
initially thought we needed a generic sort-like command.
I see. This is actually an important code path. How about this code
if test $# -eq 0
if test -e "$GIT_DIR/MERGE_RR"
set -- $(git rerere remaining)
files=$(git diff-files --name-only --diff-filter=U -- "$@")
This does not require an enhancement of rerere-remaining and still
captures all three cases that currently go through separate branches.
(Throw in some version of --ignore-submodules= if necessary, but I guess
it is not.)
We do have a problem if there are file names with spaces, but it is not
a new problem.
The patches could then be:
1. switch to diff-files, add tests, and document how
diff.orderFile affects mergetool.
2. Teach mergetool about the "-O<orderFile>" flag so that it can
override the configuration, and add tests. It could be
argued that this should be squashed into (1).
3. (optional) teach "rerere remaining" to honor the
-O<orderfile> flag and teach mergetool to supply the option.
Sure, except that 3. won't be necessary.
