Hello! Not sure if I’m doing something wrong here, but it seems that when calling “git checkout <tree-ish> [--] <pathspec>”, the last argument is not interpreted correctly.
I have a repository that contains a multi-module Maven project, and as such it contains several “pom.xml” files, one in the root directory and a few others in sub-directories. If I understand correctly the documentation, calling “git checkout 0123abcdef -- :/**pom.xml” should checkout (to the working tree and the index) all files named “pom.xml” from revision 0123abcdef. As of version 2.23.0.windows.1 it only checks out the “pom.xml” file from the root of the repository. However, if I run “git checkout --patch 0123abcdef -- :/**pom.xml”, then during the interactive process I am asked about changes from all “pom.xml” files, everywhere in the directory hierarchy. (The short form “-p” also works.) If I just type “a” at every prompt, I get what I expected from the first command, i.e. all matching files in the given revision. (I just tested that version now because it’s the newest I can find. But the issue happens since at least 2.20, probably earlier.) Cheers, —Bogdan Butnaru
