How about making split_ident_line() a bit friendlier be letting it
provide the epoch as default time stamp instead of NULL?
Two knee-jerk concerns I have without going back to the callers:
* Would that "0" ever be given to the approxidate parser, which
rejects ancient dates in numbers-since-epoch format without @
* Does any existing caller use the NULL as a sign to see the input
was without date and act on that information?
I looked at all the callers (there aren't that many), and none of
them did "Do this on a person-only ident, and do that on an ident
with timestamp". So for the callers that ignore timestamp, your
patch will be a no-op, and for others that assume there is a
timestamp, it will turn a crash/segv into output with funny
What about sane_ident_split in builtin/commit.c? It explicitly rejects a
NULL date. The logic in determine_author_info is a little hard to follow
(it assembles the ident line with fmt_ident and then reparses it), but I
believe it should be catching a bogus line from "commit -c", or from
GIT_AUTHOR_DATE in the environment.
Right, so let's keep the NULLs and fix the individual cases. A quick
"git grep -W -e date_begin -e date_end -e tz_begin -e tz_end" reveals
that there are only the ones we talked about: blame, pretty, commit
and -- of course -- ident. And only the first two need fixing.
As a side note, when determine_author_info sees a bogus ident, it
appears to just silently ignore it, which is probably a bad thing.
Shouldn't we by complaining? Or am I mis-reading the code?
The code looks complicated, but I just tried it: fmt_ident() dies if you
give it an invalid date.
