This series consists mostly of additional test fixes for SHA-256, plus some test framework improvements and a new option to rev-parse.
Up until now, most of the test changes have been directly related to fixing hash values or sizes in some way. In other words, previous test fixes would be required even for a Git binary that supported only SHA-256 and not SHA-1. In this series, we also introduce some test changes that deal with the extension that will allow the same binary to handle both. The changes themselves are relatively uninteresting, but changes like these will be making appearances in future test fix series as well. They may appear bizarre and out of place at times, but rest assured that they will be useful in the future. The other notable thing in this series is the introduction of a new rev-parse option, --object-format. We know, according to the transition plan, that we'll need to support users working with input and output in different hash algorithms. Since we're starting to see this kind of code appear in the codebase, it makes sense to introduce a helper that lets scripters determine the appropriate value, and we should introduce this code sooner, rather than later, so people can start using it. We had had some discussions about the name of options to be used for hash algorithms but I don't recall us coming to a definitive conclusion. Opinions about the name are of course welcome. I'm not particularly attached to any name, so whatever the consensus is works for me.  Possibilities include --object-format, --show-object-format, --hash, --show-hash, --hash-algorithm, --show-hash-algorithm, and more. brian m. carlson (15): t/oid-info: allow looking up hash algorithm name t/oid-info: add empty tree and empty blob values rev-parse: add an --object-format option t1305: avoid comparing extensions t3429: remove SHA1 annotation t4010: abstract away SHA-1-specific constants t4011: abstract away SHA-1-specific constants t4015: abstract away SHA-1-specific constants t4027: make hash-size independent t4034: abstract away SHA-1-specific constants t4038: abstract away SHA-1 specific constants t4039: abstract away SHA-1-specific constants t4044: update test to work with SHA-256 t4045: make hash-size independent t4048: abstract away SHA-1-specific constants Documentation/git-rev-parse.txt | 7 +++ builtin/rev-parse.c | 11 ++++ t/oid-info/hash-info | 9 +++ t/t1305-config-include.sh | 2 +- t/t1500-rev-parse.sh | 15 +++++ t/t3429-rebase-edit-todo.sh | 2 +- t/t4010-diff-pathspec.sh | 20 ++++--- t/t4011-diff-symlink.sh | 31 ++++++---- t/t4015-diff-whitespace.sh | 89 ++++++++++++++++----------- t/t4027-diff-submodule.sh | 16 ++--- t/t4034-diff-words.sh | 93 +++++++++++++++++------------ t/t4038-diff-combined.sh | 19 ++++-- t/t4039-diff-assume-unchanged.sh | 3 +- t/t4044-diff-index-unique-abbrev.sh | 46 +++++++++----- t/t4045-diff-relative.sh | 2 +- t/t4048-diff-combined-binary.sh | 58 ++++++++++-------- 16 files changed, 268 insertions(+), 155 deletions(-)
