It is now in the middle of 5th week of this release cycle [*1*], and due to the season being summer and with US holidays, I expect that things will be more quiet than other weeks. It was a good time to review the recent issues of whats-cooking, and that is what I just did.
Here is a list of topics, that I thought may be of merit, but seem to be stalled for extensive timeperiod. I am mostly worried about the ones that (superficially at least) looked good to me but haven't got any reviews. * jk/gitweb-utf8 (2013-04-08) 4 commits - gitweb: Fix broken blob action parameters on blob/commitdiff pages - gitweb: Don't append ';js=(0|1)' to external links - gitweb: Make feed title valid utf8 - gitweb: Fix utf8 encoding for blob_plain, blobdiff_plain, commitdiff_plain, and patch Various fixes to gitweb. Drew Northup volunteered to take a look into this. $gmane/226216 * 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; kicked back to 'pu'. * jl/submodule-mv (2013-04-23) 5 commits - submodule.c: duplicate real_path's return value - rm: delete .gitmodules entry of submodules removed from the work tree - Teach mv to update the path entry in .gitmodules for moved submodules - Teach mv to move submodules using a gitfile - Teach mv to move submodules together with their work trees "git mv A B" when moving a submodule A does "the right thing", inclusing relocating its working tree and adjusting the paths in the .gitmodules file. Waiting for a reroll. $gmane/226294 * hv/config-from-blob (2013-05-12) 5 commits - do not die when error in config parsing of buf occurs - teach config --blob option to parse config from database - config: make parsing stack struct independent from actual data source - config: drop cf validity check in get_next_char() - config: factor out config file stack management Waiting for a reroll. $gmane/223964 * rj/read-default-config-in-show-ref-pack-refs (2013-06-17) 3 commits - ### DONTMERGE: needs better explanation on what config they need - pack-refs.c: Add missing call to git_config() - show-ref.c: Add missing call to git_config() The changes themselves are probably good, but it is unclear what basic setting needs to be read for which exact operation. Waiting for clarification. $gmane/228294 * 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. $gmane/225137 * jk/fast-import-empty-ls (2013-06-23) 4 commits - fast-import: allow moving the root tree - fast-import: allow ls or filecopy of the root tree - fast-import: set valid mode on root tree in "ls" - t9300: document fast-import empty path issues Waiting for reviews. $gmane/228741 * mh/multimail (2013-04-21) 1 commit - git-multimail: a replacement for post-receive-email Waiting for the initial history to pull from. $gmane/223564 [Footnote] *1* The release calendar is at http://tinyurl.com/gitCal The 8th week is also expected to be slow due to OSCON. -- 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
