Here are the topics that have been cooking.  Commits prefixed with
'-' are only in 'pu' (proposed updates) while commits prefixed with
'+' are in 'next'.

Usually I avoid issuing "What's cooking" back-to-back, but because I
will be offline for a few days, here is a snapshot of tonight's

Some topics that have been cooking in 'next' from the previous cycle
have now graduated to 'master', so the RelNotes have been updated.

Nothing new in 'next', and it has not been rewound yet, which will
hopefully happen this weekend, and after that post 1.8.3 cycle
really starts.

Also a rather serious regression on path-exclusion logic (most
notably seen in .gitignore) has been found and quickly patched (it
hasn't been merged to 'master' yet, though).

You can find the changes described here in the integration branches
of the repositories listed at

[Graduated to "master"]

* as/check-ignore (2013-04-29) 6 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-04-30 at 646931f)
 + t0008: use named pipe (FIFO) to test check-ignore streaming
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-04-21 at 7515aa8)
 + Documentation: add caveats about I/O buffering for check-{attr,ignore}
 + check-ignore: allow incremental streaming of queries via --stdin
 + check-ignore: move setup into cmd_check_ignore()
 + check-ignore: add -n / --non-matching option
 + t0008: remove duplicated test fixture data

 Enhance "check-ignore" (1.8.2 update) to work more like "check-attr"
 over bidi-pipes.

* fc/transport-helper-error-reporting (2013-05-10) 12 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-05-10 at 2a9af4b)
 + transport-helper: fix remote helper namespace regression
 + test: remote-helper: add missing and
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-04-25 at 3358f1a)
 + t5801: "VAR=VAL shell_func args" is forbidden
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-04-22 at 5ba6467)
 + transport-helper: update remote helper namespace
 + transport-helper: trivial code shuffle
 + transport-helper: warn when refspec is not used
 + transport-helper: clarify pushing without refspecs
 + transport-helper: update refspec documentation
 + transport-helper: clarify *:* refspec
 + transport-helper: improve push messages
 + transport-helper: mention helper name when it dies
 + transport-helper: report errors properly
 (this branch is tangled with js/transport-helper-error-reporting-fix.)

 Update transport helper to report errors and maintain ref hierarchy
 used to keep track of remote helper state better.

* jc/prune-all (2013-04-25) 4 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-04-26 at 97a7387)
 + prune: introduce OPT_EXPIRY_DATE() and use it
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-04-22 at b00ccf6)
 + api-parse-options.txt: document "no-" for non-boolean options
 + git-gc.txt, git-reflog.txt: document new expiry options
 + date.c: add parse_expiry_date()
 (this branch is used by mh/packed-refs-various.)

 We used the approxidate() parser for "--expire=<timestamp>" options
 of various commands, but it is better to treat --expire=all and
 --expire=now a bit more specially than using the current timestamp.
 Update "git gc" and "git reflog" with a new parsing function for
 expiry dates.

* jh/checkout-auto-tracking (2013-04-21) 8 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-04-22 at 2356700)
 + glossary: Update and rephrase the definition of a remote-tracking branch
 + branch.c: Validate tracking branches with refspecs instead of refs/remotes/*
 + t9114.2: Don't use --track option against "svn-remote"-tracking branches
 + t7201.24: Add refspec to keep --track working
 + t3200.39: tracking setup should fail if there is no matching refspec.
 + checkout: Use remote refspecs when DWIMming tracking branches
 + t2024: Show failure to use refspec when DWIMming remote branch names
 + t2024: Add tests verifying current DWIM behavior of 'git checkout <branch>'

 Updates "git checkout foo" that DWIMs the intended "upstream" and
 turns it into "git checkout -t -b foo remotes/origin/foo" to
 correctly take existing remote definitions into account.  The
 remote "origin" may be what uniquely map its own branch to
 remotes/some/where/foo but that some/where may not be "origin".

* jk/lookup-object-prefer-latest (2013-05-02) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-05-06 at cc59dcc)
 + lookup_object: prioritize recently found objects

 Optimizes object lookup when the object hashtable starts to become

* jk/subtree-do-not-push-if-split-fails (2013-05-01) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-05-06 at 81bdf37)
 + contrib/subtree: don't delete remote branches if split fails

 "git subtree" (in contrib/) had one codepath with loose error
 checks to lose data at the remote side.

* jk/test-output (2013-05-06) 3 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-05-06 at 7c03af3)
 + t/Makefile: don't define TEST_RESULTS_DIRECTORY recursively
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-05-01 at 63827c9)
 + test output: respect $TEST_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY
 + t/Makefile: fix result handling with TEST_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY

 When TEST_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY setting is used, it was handled somewhat
 inconsistently between the test framework and t/Makefile, and logic
 to summarize the results looked at a wrong place.

* jn/config-ignore-inaccessible (2013-04-15) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-05-07 at 4f09e24)
 + config: allow inaccessible configuration under $HOME

 When $HOME is misconfigured to point at an unreadable directory, we
 used to complain and die. This loosens the check.

* js/transport-helper-error-reporting-fix (2013-04-28) 13 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-04-29 at 8cc4bb8)
 + git-remote-testgit: build it to run under $SHELL_PATH
 + git-remote-testgit: further remove some bashisms
 + git-remote-testgit: avoid process substitution
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-04-25 at 3358f1a)
 + t5801: "VAR=VAL shell_func args" is forbidden
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-04-22 at 5ba6467)
 + transport-helper: update remote helper namespace

  (merged to 'next' on 2013-04-29 at a167d3e)
 + upload-pack: ignore 'shallow' lines with unknown obj-ids

* mh/packed-refs-various (2013-05-01) 33 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-05-01 at e527153)
 + refs: handle the main ref_cache specially
 + refs: change do_for_each_*() functions to take ref_cache arguments

[New Topics]

* ap/diff-ignore-blank-lines (2013-05-29) 1 commit
 - diff: add --ignore-blank-lines option

 "git diff" learned a mode that ignores hunks whose change consists
 only of additions and removals of blank lines, which is the same as
 "diff -B" (ignore blank lines) of GNU diff.

* fc/show-branch-in-rebase-am (2013-05-29) 1 commit
 - prompt: fix for simple rebase

 The bash prompt code (in contrib/) displayed the name of the branch
 being rebased when "rebase -i/-m/-p" modes are in use, but not the
 plain vanilla "rebase".

 Will merge to 'next'.

* kb/status-ignored-optim-2 (2013-05-29) 1 commit
 - dir.c: fix ignore processing within not-ignored directories

 Fix 1.8.3 regressions in the .gitignore path exclusion logic.

* ks/difftool-dir-diff-copy-fix (2013-05-29) 1 commit
 - difftool --dir-diff: allow changing any clean working tree file

 "difftool --dir-diff" did not copy back changes made by the
 end-user in the diff tool backend to the working tree in some

* rr/push-head (2013-05-29) 3 commits
 - push: make push.default = current use resolved HEAD
 - push: fail early with detached HEAD and current
 - push: factor out the detached HEAD error message

 "git push $there HEAD:branch" did not resolve HEAD early enough, so
 it was easy to flip it around while push is still going on and push
 out a branch that the user did not originally intended when the
 command was started.

 Will merge to 'next'.

* sb/archive-zip-double-assignment-fix (2013-05-29) 1 commit
 - archive-zip:write_zip_entry: Remove second reset of size variable to zero.

* mg/more-textconv (2013-05-10) 7 commits

 + grep: honor --textconv for the case rev:path
 + grep: allow to use textconv filters
 + t7008: demonstrate behavior of grep with textconv
 + cat-file: do not die on --textconv without textconv filters
 + show: honor --textconv for blobs
 + diff_opt: track whether flags have been set explicitly
 + t4030: demonstrate behavior of show with textconv

 Make "git grep" and "git show" pay attention to --textconv when
 dealing with blob objects.

 I thought this was pretty well designed and executed, but it seems
 there are some doubts on the list.

* mh/multimail (2013-04-21) 1 commit
 - git-multimail: a replacement for post-receive-email

 Waiting for the initial history to pull from.

* jc/format-patch (2013-04-22) 2 commits
 - format-patch: --inline-single
 - format-patch: rename "no_inline" field

 A new option to send a single patch to the standard output to be
 appended at the bottom of a message.  I personally have no need for
 this, but it was easy enough to cobble together.  Tests, docs and
 stripping out more MIMEy stuff are left as exercises to interested

 Not ready for inclusion.

 Will discard unless we hear from anybody who is interested in
 tying its loose ends.

 Technology demonstration to show a way we could use unbound number
 of flag bits on commit objects.

 - remote-helpers: add exec-path links
 - remote-helpers: allow direct test execution
 - remote-helpers: rename tests

 (this branch uses fc/makefile.)

 I do not particularly think the second from the bottom is a good
 change, but it takes the remainder of the series hostage.
 Will hopefully be rerolled without it.

* fc/send-email-chainreplyto-warning (2013-05-28) 1 commit
 - send-email: remove warning about unset chainreplyto

 An overdue removal od "behaviour changed at 1.7.0; if you were
 living in a cave, here is what you can adjust to it" message.

* ks/difftool-dirdiff-copy-all (2013-05-28) 1 commit
 - difftool --dir-diff: always use identical working tree file

 "difftool --dir-diff" populates a temporary directory with files,
 inviting the user to modify them in place, but in some cases we
 weren't expecting the user to modify them and did not take the
 change back to the working tree.

 With "export" remote-helper protocol, (1) a push that tries to

 The tip one may be useful in practice but is a tad ugly ;-)

 There seem to be some miscounting by toggling the verbose/valgrind
 mode at wrong places?  Cf. $gmane/225735

 + fetch: don't try to update unfetched tracking refs
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-05-21 at f7e4b16)
 + fetch: opportunistically update tracking refs
 + refactor "ref->merge" flag
 + fetch/pull doc: untangle meaning of bare <ref>
 + t5510: start tracking-ref tests from a known state

 "git fetch origin master" unlike "git fetch origin" or "git fetch"
 does not update "refs/remotes/origin/master" and it was an early
 design decision to keep the update of remote tracking branches
 predictable, but in practice it turns out that people find it more
 convenient to opportunisticly update them whenever we have a
 chance, and we have been updating them when we run "git push" which
 already breaks the original "predictability" anyway.

 + revision.c: treat A...B merge bases as if manually specified
 + t6019: demonstrate --ancestry-path A...B breakage
 (this branch is used by kb/full-history-compute-treesame-carefully-2.)

 "git log --ancestry-path A...B" did not work as expected, as it did
 not pay attention to the fact that the merge base between A and B
 was the bottom of the range being specified.

 Major update to a very core part of the system to improve culling
 of irrelevant parents while traversing a mergy history.

 Will not be a 1.8.3 material, but is an important topic.

 "git merge @{-1}~22" was rewritten to "git merge frotz@{1}~22"
 incorrectly when your previous branch was "frotz" (it should be
 rewritten to "git merge frotz~22" instead).

* mm/color-auto-default (2013-05-15) 2 commits
 - make color.ui default to 'auto'
 - config: refactor management of color.ui's default value

 Flip the default for color.ui to 'auto', which is what many
 tutorials recommend new users to do.  The updated code claims the
 switch happened at Git 2.0 in the past tense, but we might want to
 expedite it, as this change is not all that important to deserve a
 major version bump.

 I'd vote for merging this without waiting for 2.0.  Comments?
 Waiting for a reroll.

* jh/shorten-refname (2013-05-07) 4 commits
 - t1514: refname shortening is done after dereferencing symbolic refs
 - shorten_unambiguous_ref(): Fix shortening refs/remotes/origin/HEAD to origin
 - t1514: Demonstrate failure to correctly shorten "refs/remotes/origin/HEAD"
 - t1514: Add tests of shortening refnames in strict/loose mode

 When remotes/origin/HEAD is not a symbolic ref, "rev-parse
 --abbrev-ref remotes/origin/HEAD" ought to show "origin", not
 "origin/HEAD", which is fixed with this series (if it is a symbolic
 ref that points at remotes/origin/something, then it should show
 "origin/something" and it already does).

 Expecting a reroll, as an early part of a larger series.

 + clone: allow cloning local paths with colons in them

 "git clone foo/bar:baz" cannot be a request to clone from a remote

 clone from a local repository at "foo/bar:baz".

* nd/warn-ambiguous-object-name (2013-05-29) 1 commit
 - get_sha1: warn about full or short object names that look like refs

 "git cmd <name>", when <name> happens to be a 40-hex string,
 directly uses the 40-hex string as an object name, even if a ref
 "refs/<some hierarchy>/<name>" exists.  This disambiguation order
 is unlikely to change, but we should warn about the ambiguity just
 like we warn when more than one refs/ hierachies share the same

 + fast-export: don't parse commits while reading marks file

 Optimization for fast-export by avoiding unnecessarily resolving
 arbitrary object name and parsing object when only presence and
 type information is necessary, etc.
