Here are the topics that have been cooking. Commits prefixed with '-' are only in 'pu' (proposed updates) while commits prefixed with '+' are in 'next'.
Big thanks go to Jeff who curated topics in flight while I was on vacation. I merged a couple of topics to 'next', and made the fifth batch of topics graduate to 'master'. Over the weekend, I'll start merging maintenance topics to 'maint' in preparation for cutting 1.8.1, hopefully sometime late next week. You can find the changes described here in the integration branches of the repositories listed at http://git-blame.blogspot.com/p/git-public-repositories.html -------------------------------------------------- [Graduated to "master"] * as/maint-doc-fix-no-post-rewrite (2012-11-02) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-09 at 117a91e) + commit: fixup misplacement of --no-post-rewrite description * cr/cvsimport-local-zone (2012-11-04) 2 commits (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-04 at 292f0b4) + cvsimport: work around perl tzset issue + git-cvsimport: allow author-specific timezones Allows "cvsimport" to read per-author timezone from the author info file. * jc/maint-fetch-tighten-refname-check (2012-10-19) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-04 at eda85ef) + get_fetch_map(): tighten checks on dest refs This was split out from discarded jc/maint-push-refs-all topic. * jc/prettier-pretty-note (2012-11-13) 12 commits (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-14 at 7230f26) + format-patch: add a blank line between notes and diffstat (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-04 at 40e3e48) + Doc User-Manual: Patch cover letter, three dashes, and --notes + Doc format-patch: clarify --notes use case + Doc notes: Include the format-patch --notes option + Doc SubmittingPatches: Mention --notes option after "cover letter" + Documentation: decribe format-patch --notes + format-patch --notes: show notes after three-dashes + format-patch: append --signature after notes + pretty_print_commit(): do not append notes message + pretty: prepare notes message at a centralized place + format_note(): simplify API + pretty: remove reencode_commit_message() Emit the notes attached to the commit in "format-patch --notes" output after three-dashes. * jc/same-encoding (2012-11-04) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-04 at 54991f2) + reencode_string(): introduce and use same_encoding() Various codepaths checked if two encoding names are the same using ad-hoc code and some of them ended up asking iconv() to convert between "utf8" and "UTF-8". The former is not a valid way to spell the encoding name, but often people use it by mistake, and we equated them in some but not all codepaths. Introduce a new helper function to make these codepaths consistent. * jh/symbolic-ref-d (2012-10-21) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-04 at b0762f5) + git symbolic-ref --delete $symref Add "symbolic-ref -d SYM" to delete a symbolic ref SYM. It is already possible to remove a symbolic ref with "update-ref -d --no-deref", but it may be a good addition for completeness. * jk/maint-diff-grep-textconv (2012-10-28) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-04 at 790337b) + diff_grep: use textconv buffers for add/deleted files (this branch is used by jk/pickaxe-textconv.) Fixes inconsistent use of textconv with "git log -G". * js/hp-nonstop (2012-10-30) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-09 at fe58205) + fix 'make test' for HP NonStop * mg/maint-pull-suggest-upstream-to (2012-11-08) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-13 at bd74252) + push/pull: adjust missing upstream help text to changed interface Follow-on to the new "--set-upstream-to" topic from v1.8.0 to avoid suggesting the deprecated "--set-upstream". * mh/notes-string-list (2012-11-08) 5 commits (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-09 at 7a4c58c) + string_list_add_refs_from_colon_sep(): use string_list_split() + notes: fix handling of colon-separated values + combine_notes_cat_sort_uniq(): sort and dedup lines all at once + Initialize sort_uniq_list using named constant + string_list: add a function string_list_remove_empty_items() Improve the asymptotic performance of the cat_sort_uniq notes merge strategy. * mh/strbuf-split (2012-11-04) 4 commits (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-09 at fa984b1) + strbuf_split*(): document functions + strbuf_split*(): rename "delim" parameter to "terminator" + strbuf_split_buf(): simplify iteration + strbuf_split_buf(): use ALLOC_GROW() Cleanups and documentation for strbuf_split. * mm/maint-doc-commit-edit (2012-11-02) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-09 at 8dab7f5) + Document 'git commit --no-edit' explicitly * ph/submodule-sync-recursive (2012-10-29) 2 commits (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-04 at a000f78) + Add tests for submodule sync --recursive + Teach --recursive to submodule sync Adds "--recursive" option to submodule sync. -------------------------------------------------- [New Topics] * jl/submodule-rm (2012-11-14) 1 commit - docs: move submodule section Documentation correction for d21240f (Merge branch 'jl/submodule-rm', 2012-10-29) that needs to be fast-tracked. Will merge to 'next' and soon to 'master'. * sg/complete-help-undup (2012-11-14) 1 commit - completion: remove 'help' duplicate from porcelain commands Will merge to 'next' and soon to 'master'. * bc/do-not-recurse-in-die (2012-11-15) 1 commit - usage.c: detect recursion in die routines and bail out immediately Will merge to 'next'. * cn/config-missing-path (2012-11-15) 1 commit - config: don't segfault when given --path with a missing value Will merge to 'next' and soon to 'master'. * jk/checkout-out-of-unborn (2012-11-15) 1 commit - checkout: print a message when switching unborn branches Will merge to 'next'. * mk/complete-tcsh (2012-11-16) 1 commit - tcsh-completion re-using git-completion.bash * mm/status-push-pull-advise (2012-11-16) 1 commit - status: add advice on how to push/pull to tracking branch * nd/unify-appending-of-s-o-b (2012-11-15) 1 commit - Unify appending signoff in format-patch, commit and sequencer I am not sure if the logic to refrain from adding a sign-off based on the existing run of sign-offs is done correctly in this change. -------------------------------------------------- [Stalled] * nd/pretty-placeholder-with-color-option (2012-09-30) 9 commits . pretty: support %>> that steal trailing spaces . pretty: support truncating in %>, %< and %>< . pretty: support padding placeholders, %< %> and %>< . pretty: two phase conversion for non utf-8 commits . utf8.c: add utf8_strnwidth() with the ability to skip ansi sequences . utf8.c: move display_mode_esc_sequence_len() for use by other functions . pretty: support %C(auto[,N]) to turn on coloring on next placeholder(s) . pretty: split parsing %C into a separate function . pretty: share code between format_decoration and show_decorations This causes warnings with -Wuninitialized, so I've ejected it from pu for the time being. * rc/maint-complete-git-p4 (2012-09-24) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2012-10-29 at af52cef) + Teach git-completion about git p4 Comment from Pete will need to be addressed in a follow-up patch. * as/test-tweaks (2012-09-20) 7 commits - tests: paint unexpectedly fixed known breakages in bold red - tests: test the test framework more thoroughly - [SQUASH] t/t0000-basic.sh: quoting of TEST_DIRECTORY is screwed up - tests: refactor mechanics of testing in a sub test-lib - tests: paint skipped tests in bold blue - tests: test number comes first in 'not ok $count - $message' - tests: paint known breakages in bold yellow Various minor tweaks to the test framework to paint its output lines in colors that match what they mean better. Has the "is this really blue?" issue Peff raised resolved??? * jc/maint-name-rev (2012-09-17) 7 commits - describe --contains: use "name-rev --algorithm=weight" - name-rev --algorithm=weight: tests and documentation - name-rev --algorithm=weight: cache the computed weight in notes - name-rev --algorithm=weight: trivial optimization - name-rev: --algorithm option - name_rev: clarify the logic to assign a new tip-name to a commit - name-rev: lose unnecessary typedef "git name-rev" names the given revision based on a ref that can be reached in the smallest number of steps from the rev, but that is not useful when the caller wants to know which tag is the oldest one that contains the rev. This teaches a new mode to the command that uses the oldest ref among those which contain the rev. I am not sure if this is worth it; for one thing, even with the help from notes-cache, it seems to make the "describe --contains" even slower. Also the command will be unusably slow for a user who does not have a write access (hence unable to create or update the notes-cache). Stalled mostly due to lack of responses. * jc/xprm-generation (2012-09-14) 1 commit - test-generation: compute generation numbers and clock skews A toy to analyze how bad the clock skews are in histories of real world projects. Stalled mostly due to lack of responses. * jc/blame-no-follow (2012-09-21) 2 commits - blame: pay attention to --no-follow - diff: accept --no-follow option Teaches "--no-follow" option to "git blame" to disable its whole-file rename detection. Stalled mostly due to lack of responses. * jc/doc-default-format (2012-10-07) 2 commits - [SQAUSH] allow "cd Doc* && make DEFAULT_DOC_TARGET=..." - Allow generating a non-default set of documentation Need to address the installation half if this is to be any useful. * mk/maint-graph-infinity-loop (2012-09-25) 1 commit - graph.c: infinite loop in git whatchanged --graph -m The --graph code fell into infinite loop when asked to do what the code did not expect ;-) Anybody who worked on "--graph" wants to comment? Stalled mostly due to lack of responses. * jc/add-delete-default (2012-08-13) 1 commit - git add: notice removal of tracked paths by default "git add dir/" updated modified files and added new files, but does not notice removed files, which may be "Huh?" to some users. They can of course use "git add -A dir/", but why should they? Resurrected from graveyard, as I thought it was a worthwhile thing to do in the longer term. Waiting for comments. * mb/remote-default-nn-origin (2012-07-11) 6 commits - Teach get_default_remote to respect remote.default. - Test that plain "git fetch" uses remote.default when on a detached HEAD. - Teach clone to set remote.default. - Teach "git remote" about remote.default. - Teach remote.c about the remote.default configuration setting. - Rename remote.c's default_remote_name static variables. When the user does not specify what remote to interact with, we often attempt to use 'origin'. This can now be customized via a configuration variable. Expecting a re-roll. "The first remote becomes the default" bit is better done as a separate step. * mh/ceiling (2012-10-29) 8 commits - string_list_longest_prefix(): remove function - setup_git_directory_gently_1(): resolve symlinks in ceiling paths - longest_ancestor_length(): require prefix list entries to be normalized - longest_ancestor_length(): take a string_list argument for prefixes - longest_ancestor_length(): use string_list_split() - Introduce new function real_path_if_valid() - real_path_internal(): add comment explaining use of cwd - Introduce new static function real_path_internal() Elements of GIT_CEILING_DIRECTORIES list may not match the real pathname we obtain from getcwd(), leading the GIT_DIR discovery logic to escape the ceilings the user thought to have specified. -------------------------------------------------- [Cooking] * jk/maint-gitweb-xss (2012-11-12) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-14 at 7a667bc) + gitweb: escape html in rss title Fixes an XSS vulnerability in gitweb. * jk/send-email-sender-prompt (2012-11-15) 8 commits - send-email: do not prompt for explicit repo ident - Git.pm: teach "ident" to query explicitness - var: provide explicit/implicit ident information - var: accept multiple variables on the command line - ident: keep separate "explicit" flags for author and committer - ident: make user_ident_explicitly_given static - t7502: factor out autoident prerequisite - test-lib: allow negation of prerequisites Avoid annoying sender prompt in git-send-email, but only when it is safe to do so. Perhaps keep only the first three patches, and replace the rest with the one from Felipe that takes a much simpler approach (the rationale of that patch needs to be cleaned up first, along the lines Jeff outlined, though). * mg/replace-resolve-delete (2012-11-13) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-14 at fa785ae) + replace: parse revision argument for -d Be more user friendly to people using "git replace -d". * ml/cygwin-mingw-headers (2012-11-12) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-15 at 22e11b3) + Update cygwin.c for new mingw-64 win32 api headers Make git work on newer cygwin. * mo/cvs-server-updates (2012-10-16) 10 commits - cvsserver Documentation: new cvs ... -r support - cvsserver: add t9402 to test branch and tag refs - cvsserver: support -r and sticky tags for most operations - cvsserver: Add version awareness to argsfromdir - cvsserver: generalize getmeta() to recognize commit refs - cvsserver: implement req_Sticky and related utilities - cvsserver: add misc commit lookup, file meta data, and file listing functions - cvsserver: define a tag name character escape mechanism - cvsserver: cleanup extra slashes in filename arguments - cvsserver: factor out git-log parsing logic Needs review by folks interested in cvsserver. * ta/doc-cleanup (2012-10-25) 6 commits (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-13 at e11fafd) + Documentation: build html for all files in technical and howto + Documentation/howto: convert plain text files to asciidoc + Documentation/technical: convert plain text files to asciidoc + Change headline of technical/send-pack-pipeline.txt to not confuse its content with content from git-send-pack.txt + Shorten two over-long lines in git-bisect-lk2009.txt by abbreviating some sha1 + Split over-long synopsis in git-fetch-pack.txt into several lines Will merge to 'master' in the sixth batch. * lt/diff-stat-show-0-lines (2012-10-17) 1 commit - Fix "git diff --stat" for interesting - but empty - file changes We failed to mention a file without any content change but whose permission bit was modified, or (worse yet) a new file without any content in the "git diff --stat" output. Needs some test updates. * fc/zsh-completion (2012-10-29) 3 commits - completion: add new zsh completion - completion: add new __gitcompadd helper - completion: get rid of empty COMPREPLY assignments There were some comments on this, but I wasn't clear on the outcome. Need to take a closer look. * jc/apply-trailing-blank-removal (2012-10-12) 1 commit - apply.c:update_pre_post_images(): the preimage can be truncated Fix to update_pre_post_images() that did not take into account the possibility that whitespace fix could shrink the preimage and change the number of lines in it. Extra set of eyeballs appreciated. * jn/warn-on-inaccessible-loosen (2012-10-14) 4 commits - config: exit on error accessing any config file - doc: advertise GIT_CONFIG_NOSYSTEM - config: treat user and xdg config permission problems as errors - config, gitignore: failure to access with ENOTDIR is ok An RFC to deal with a situation where .config/git is a file and we notice .config/git/config is not readable due to ENOTDIR, not ENOENT; I think a bit more refactored approach to consistently address permission errors across config, exclude and attrs is desirable. Don't we also need a check for an opposite situation where we open .config/git/config or .gitattributes for reading but they turn out to be directories? * as/check-ignore (2012-11-08) 14 commits - t0007: fix tests on Windows - Documentation/check-ignore: we show the deciding match, not the first - Add git-check-ignore sub-command - dir.c: provide free_directory() for reclaiming dir_struct memory - pathspec.c: move reusable code from builtin/add.c - dir.c: refactor treat_gitlinks() - dir.c: keep track of where patterns came from - dir.c: refactor is_path_excluded() - dir.c: refactor is_excluded() - dir.c: refactor is_excluded_from_list() - dir.c: rename excluded() to is_excluded() - dir.c: rename excluded_from_list() to is_excluded_from_list() - dir.c: rename path_excluded() to is_path_excluded() - dir.c: rename cryptic 'which' variable to more consistent name Duy helped to reroll this. Expecting a re-roll. * so/prompt-command (2012-10-17) 4 commits (merged to 'next' on 2012-10-25 at 79565a1) + coloured git-prompt: paint detached HEAD marker in red + Fix up colored git-prompt + show color hints based on state of the git tree + Allow __git_ps1 to be used in PROMPT_COMMAND Updates __git_ps1 so that it can be used as $PROMPT_COMMAND, instead of being used for command substitution in $PS1, to embed color escape sequences in its output. Will cook in 'next'. * aw/rebase-am-failure-detection (2012-10-11) 1 commit - rebase: Handle cases where format-patch fails I am unhappy a bit about the possible performance implications of having to store the output in a temporary file only for a rare case of format-patch aborting. * nd/wildmatch (2012-10-15) 13 commits (merged to 'next' on 2012-10-25 at 510e8df) + Support "**" wildcard in .gitignore and .gitattributes + wildmatch: make /**/ match zero or more directories + wildmatch: adjust "**" behavior + wildmatch: fix case-insensitive matching + wildmatch: remove static variable force_lower_case + wildmatch: make wildmatch's return value compatible with fnmatch + t3070: disable unreliable fnmatch tests + Integrate wildmatch to git + wildmatch: follow Git's coding convention + wildmatch: remove unnecessary functions + Import wildmatch from rsync + ctype: support iscntrl, ispunct, isxdigit and isprint + ctype: make sane_ctype const array Allows pathname patterns in .gitignore and .gitattributes files with double-asterisks "foo/**/bar" to match any number of directory hierarchies. I suspect that this needs to be plugged to pathspec matching code; otherwise "git log -- 'Docum*/**/*.txt'" would not show the log for commits that touch Documentation/git.txt, which would be confusing to the users. Will cook in 'next'. * jk/lua-hackery (2012-10-07) 6 commits - pretty: fix up one-off format_commit_message calls - Minimum compilation fixup - Makefile: make "lua" a bit more configurable - add a "lua" pretty format - add basic lua infrastructure - pretty: make some commit-parsing helpers more public Interesting exercise. When we do this for real, we probably would want to wrap a commit to make it more like an "object" with methods like "parents", etc. * jh/update-ref-d-through-symref (2012-10-21) 2 commits - Fix failure to delete a packed ref through a symref - t1400-update-ref: Add test verifying bug with symrefs in delete_ref() "update-ref -d --deref SYM" to delete a ref through a symbolic ref that points to it did not remove it correctly. Need to check reviews, but is probably ready for 'next'. * jk/config-ignore-duplicates (2012-10-29) 9 commits (merged to 'next' on 2012-10-29 at 67fa0a2) + builtin/config.c: Fix a sparse warning (merged to 'next' on 2012-10-25 at 233df08) + git-config: use git_config_with_options + git-config: do not complain about duplicate entries + git-config: collect values instead of immediately printing + git-config: fix regexp memory leaks on error conditions + git-config: remove memory leak of key regexp + t1300: test "git config --get-all" more thoroughly + t1300: remove redundant test + t1300: style updates Drop duplicate detection from git-config; this lets it better match the internal config callbacks, which clears up some corner cases with includes. Will merge to 'master' in the sixth batch. * fc/completion-test-simplification (2012-11-16) 6 commits - completion: simplify __gitcomp() test helper - completion: refactor __gitcomp related tests - completion: consolidate test_completion*() tests - completion: simplify tests using test_completion_long() - completion: standardize final space marker in tests - completion: add comment for test_completion() Clean up completion tests. Use of conslidated helper may make instrumenting one particular test during debugging of the test itself, but I think that issue should be addressed in some other way (e.g. making sure individual tests in 9902 can be skipped). * fc/remote-testgit-feature-done (2012-10-29) 1 commit - remote-testgit: properly check for errors Needs review. * jk/pickaxe-textconv (2012-10-28) 2 commits - pickaxe: use textconv for -S counting - pickaxe: hoist empty needle check Use textconv filters when searching with "log -S". * fc/remote-bzr (2012-11-08) 5 commits - remote-bzr: update working tree - remote-bzr: add support for remote repositories - remote-bzr: add support for pushing - remote-bzr: add simple tests - Add new remote-bzr transport helper New remote helper for bzr. Will merge to 'next'. * fc/remote-hg (2012-11-12) 20 commits - remote-hg: avoid bad refs - remote-hg: try the 'tip' if no checkout present - remote-hg: fix compatibility with older versions of hg - remote-hg: add missing config for basic tests - remote-hg: the author email can be null - remote-hg: add option to not track branches - remote-hg: add extra author test - remote-hg: add tests to compare with hg-git - remote-hg: add bidirectional tests - test-lib: avoid full path to store test results - remote-hg: add basic tests - remote-hg: fake bookmark when there's none - remote-hg: add compat for hg-git author fixes - remote-hg: add support for hg-git compat mode - remote-hg: match hg merge behavior - remote-hg: make sure the encoding is correct - remote-hg: add support to push URLs - remote-hg: add support for remote pushing - remote-hg: add support for pushing - Add new remote-hg transport helper New remote helper for hg. Will merge to 'next'. * jk/maint-http-half-auth-fetch (2012-10-31) 2 commits (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-09 at af69926) + remote-curl: retry failed requests for auth even with gzip + remote-curl: hoist gzip buffer size to top of post_rpc Fixes fetch from servers that ask for auth only during the actual packing phase. This is not really a recommended configuration, but it cleans up the code at the same time. Will merge to 'master' in the sixth batch. * kb/preload-index-more (2012-11-02) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-09 at a750ebd) + update-index/diff-index: use core.preloadindex to improve performance Use preloadindex in more places, which has a nice speedup on systems with slow stat calls (and even on Linux). Will merge to 'master' in the sixth batch. * cr/push-force-tag-update (2012-11-12) 5 commits - push: update remote tags only with force - push: flag updates that require force - push: flag updates - push: add advice for rejected tag reference - push: return reject reasons via a mask Require "-f" for push to update a tag, even if it is a fast-forward. Needs review. I'm undecided yet on whether the goal is the right thing to do, but it does prevent some potential mistakes. I haven't looked closely at the implementation itself; review from interested parties would be helpful. * fc/fast-export-fixes (2012-11-08) 14 commits - fast-export: don't handle uninteresting refs - fast-export: make sure updated refs get updated - fast-export: fix comparison in tests - fast-export: trivial cleanup - remote-testgit: make clear the 'done' feature - remote-testgit: report success after an import - remote-testgit: exercise more features - remote-testgit: cleanup tests - remote-testgit: remove irrelevant test - remote-testgit: get rid of non-local functionality - Add new simplified git-remote-testgit - Rename git-remote-testgit to git-remote-testpy - remote-testgit: fix direction of marks - fast-export: avoid importing blob marks Improvements to fix fast-export bugs, including how refs pointing to already-seen commits are handled. An earlier 4-commit version of this series looked good to me, but this much-expanded version has not seen any comments. Looks like it has been re-rolled, but I haven't checked it out yet. Needs review. * mh/alt-odb-string-list-cleanup (2012-11-08) 2 commits (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-13 at 2bf41d9) + link_alt_odb_entries(): take (char *, len) rather than two pointers + link_alt_odb_entries(): use string_list_split_in_place() Cleanups in the alternates code. Fixes a potential bug and makes the code much cleaner. Will merge to 'master' in the sixth batch. * pf/editor-ignore-sigint (2012-11-11) 5 commits - launch_editor: propagate SIGINT from editor to git - run-command: do not warn about child death by SIGINT - run-command: drop silent_exec_failure arg from wait_or_whine - launch_editor: ignore SIGINT while the editor has control - launch_editor: refactor to use start/finish_command Avoid confusing cases where the user hits Ctrl-C while in the editor session, not realizing git will receive the signal. Since most editors will take over the terminal and will block SIGINT, this is not likely to confuse anyone. Some people raised issues with emacsclient, which are addressed by this re-roll. It should probably also handle SIGQUIT, and there were a handful of other review comments. Expecting a re-roll. * pp/gitweb-config-underscore (2012-11-08) 1 commit - gitweb: make remote_heads config setting work The key "gitweb.remote_heads" is not legal git config; this maps it to "gitweb.remoteheads". Junio raised a good point about the implementation for three-level variables. Expecting a re-roll. * pw/maint-p4-rcs-expansion-newline (2012-11-08) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-13 at e90cc7c) + git p4: RCS expansion should not span newlines I do not have p4 to play with, but looks obviously correct to me. Will merge to 'master' in the sixth batch. * rh/maint-gitweb-highlight-ext (2012-11-08) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2012-11-13 at c57d856) + gitweb.perl: fix %highlight_ext mappings Fixes a clever misuse of perl's list interpretation. Will merge to 'master' in the sixth batch. * rr/submodule-diff-config (2012-11-08) 3 commits - submodule: display summary header in bold - diff: introduce diff.submodule configuration variable - Documentation: move diff.wordRegex from config.txt to diff-config.txt Lets "git diff --submodule=log" become the default via configuration. Almost there. Looks like a new version has been posted, but I haven't picked it up yet.
