From: Brandon Casey <bca...@nvidia.com> I hate to have the battle of the patches, but I kinda prefer the append_signoff code in sequencer.c over the code in log-tree.c as a foundation to build on.
So, this series is similar to Duy's "unification" series, but it goes in the opposite direction and builds on top of sequencer.c and additionally adds the elements from my original series to treat the "(cherry picked from..." line added by 'cherry-pick -x' in the same way that other footer elements are treated (after addressing Junio's comments about rfc2822 continuation lines and duplicate s-o-b's). I've integrated Duy's series with a few minor tweaks. I added a couple of additional tests to t4014 and corrected one of the tests which had incorrect behavior. I think his sign-off's should still be valid, so I kept them in. Sorry that I've been slow, and now the two of us are stepping on each other's toes, but Duy please take a look and let me know if there's anything you dislike. The main difference between this series and Duy's, aside from the change in behavior with respect to a "(cherry picked from...)" line, is that the detection of a s-o-b footer is done in a somewhat more generic way. The log-tree.c code expects to find something that looks like "[-A-Za-z]+:" on the left-hand side, and something that looks like an email address on the right-hand side. The sequencer.c code relaxes this definition so that an email address is not required on the right hand side. This allows lines like "Change-id: IXXXX" or "Bug: XXX" to be considered valid footer elements. So, this series should result in s-o-b and "(cherry picked from...)" being appended to commit messages in a more consistent and deterministic way. For example, the decision about whether to insert a blank line before appending a s-o-b. As discussed, cherry-pick and commit will only refrain from appending a s-o-b if the committer's s-o-b appears as the last one in a conforming footer, while format-patch will refrain from appending it if it appears anywhere within the footer. -Brandon Brandon Casey (8): sequencer.c: remove broken support for rfc2822 continuation in footer t/test-lib-functions.sh: allow to specify the tag name to test_commit t/t3511: add some tests of 'cherry-pick -s' functionality sequencer.c: recognize "(cherry picked from ..." as part of s-o-b footer sequencer.c: always separate "(cherry picked from" from commit body sequencer.c: teach append_signoff how to detect duplicate s-o-b sequencer.c: teach append_signoff to avoid adding a duplicate newline Unify appending signoff in format-patch, commit and sequencer Nguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy (3): t4014: more tests about appending s-o-b lines format-patch: stricter S-o-b detection format-patch: update append_signoff prototype builtin/commit.c | 2 +- builtin/log.c | 13 +-- log-tree.c | 92 ++--------------- revision.h | 2 +- sequencer.c | 133 +++++++++++++++--------- sequencer.h | 2 +- t/t3511-cherry-pick-x.sh | 219 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ t/t4014-format-patch.sh | 262 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ t/test-lib-functions.sh | 9 +- 9 files changed, 580 insertions(+), 154 deletions(-) create mode 100755 t/t3511-cherry-pick-x.sh -- 126.96.36.1994.g959048a -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
