What's cooking in git.git (Aug 2013, #06; Tue, 27)
--------------------------------------------------

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

Git 1.8.4 was tagged and released recently, and we will shortly go
into a new development cycle for the next one, likely to be 1.8.5.

In this issue of "What's cooking" report, I haven't started sifting
the topics, most of which are marked as "will cook in next", into
separate bins to indicate what order they would graduate yet.  After
doing so, the tip of 'next' will be rewound, hopefully tomorrow but
it may slip by a day or so.

I expect this cycle to conclude at around the end of October, and we
will have another release by the end of the year.  The first release
in the coming year may be named "Git 2.0" with the promised
compatibility breakages.

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

    http://git-blame.blogspot.com/p/git-public-repositories.html

[New Topics]

* js/xread-in-full (2013-08-20) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-20 at 95baa13)
 + stream_to_pack: xread does not guarantee to read all requested bytes

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-20

 A call to xread() was used without a loop around to cope with short
 read in the codepath to stream new contents to a pack.

 Will cook in 'next'.


* sb/mailmap-freeing-NULL-is-ok (2013-08-20) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-20 at 303b16c)
 + mailmap: remove redundant check for freeing memory

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-20

 Will cook in 'next'.


* tg/index-struct-sizes (2013-08-20) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-22 at df6b8e2)
 + read-cache: use fixed width integer types

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-22

 The code that reads from a region that mmaps an on-disk index
 assumed that "int"/"short" are always 32/16 bits.

 Will cook in 'next'.


* bc/completion-for-bash-3.0 (2013-08-22) 3 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-22 at 46c5bb2)
 + contrib/git-prompt.sh: handle missing 'printf -v' more gracefully
 + t9902-completion.sh: old Bash still does not support array+=('') notation
 + git-completion.bash: use correct Bash/Zsh array length syntax

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-22

 Some people still use rather old versions of bash, which cannot
 grok some constructs like 'printf -v varname' the prompt and
 completion code started to use recently.

 Will cook in 'next'.


* bc/submodule-status-ignored (2013-08-20) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-22 at 3dfd2a3)
 + submodule: don't print status output with ignore=all
 + submodule: fix confusing variable name

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-22

 Will cook in 'next'.


* jk/config-int-range-check (2013-08-21) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-22 at 465efb3)
 + teach git-config to output large integers
 + config: properly range-check integer values

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-22

 "git config --int section.var 3g" should somehow diagnose that the
 number does not fit in "int" (on 32-bit platforms anyway) but it
 did not.

 Will cook in 'next'.


* jk/duplicate-objects-in-packs (2013-08-24) 6 commits
 - default pack.indexDuplicates to false
 - index-pack: optionally reject packs with duplicate objects
 - test index-pack on packs with recoverable delta cycles
 - add tests for indexing packs with delta cycles
 - sha1-lookup: handle duplicate keys with GIT_USE_LOOKUP
 - test-sha1: add a binary output mode

 A packfile that stores the same object more than once is broken and
 will be rejected.

 Will merge to 'next'.


* mm/mediawiki-dumb-push-fix (2013-08-21) 2 commits
 - git-remote-mediawiki: add test and check Makefile targets
 - git-remote-mediawiki: reset private ref after non-dumb push

 Waiting for a reroll.


* rt/rebase-p-no-merge-summary (2013-08-21) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-22 at 5310599)
 + rebase --preserve-merges: ignore "merge.log" config

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-22

 "git rebase -p" internally used the merge machinery, but when
 rebasing, there should not be a need for merge summary.

 Will cook in 'next'.


* rv/send-email-cache-generated-mid (2013-08-21) 2 commits
 - git-send-email: Cache generated message-ids, use them when prompting
 - git-send-email: add optional 'choices' parameter to the ask sub


* sp/clip-read-write-to-8mb (2013-08-20) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-22 at 254e75d)
 + Revert "compat/clipped-write.c: large write(2) fails on Mac OS X/XNU"
 + xread, xwrite: limit size of IO to 8MB

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-22

 Send a large request to read(2)/write(2) as a smaller but still
 reasonably large chunks, which would improve the latency when the
 operation needs to be killed and incidentally works around broken
 64-bit systems that cannot take a 2GB write or read in one go.

 Will cook in 'next'.


* sp/doc-smart-http (2013-08-21) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-22 at 4a16937)
 + Document the HTTP transport protocols

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-22

 Will cook in 'next'.


* dw/diff-no-index-doc (2013-08-22) 1 commit
 - diff --no-index: clarify operation when not inside a repository

 When the user types "git diff" outside a working tree, thinking he
 is inside one, the current error message that is a single-liner
 "usage: git diff --no-index <path> <path>" may not be sufficient to
 make him realize the mistake. Add "Not a git repository" to the
 error message when we fell into the "--no-index" mode without an
 explicit command line option to instruct us to do so.


* sb/repack-in-c (2013-08-22) 3 commits
 - repack: rewrite the shell script in C (squashing proposal)
 - repack: retain the return value of pack-objects
 - repack: rewrite the shell script in C


* ap/commit-author-mailmap (2013-08-24) 1 commit
 - commit: search author pattern against mailmap

 "git commit --author=$name", when $name is not in the canonical
 "A. U. Thor <au.t...@example.xz>" format, looks for a matching name
 from existing history, but did not consult mailmap to grab the
 preferred author name.

 Will merge to 'next'.


* hv/config-from-blob (2013-08-26) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-27 at 7bc9019)
 + config: do not use C function names as struct members

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-27

 Portability fix.

 Will merge to 'master', aiming to later apply to 1.8.4.x maintenance track.


* jk/mailmap-incomplete-line (2013-08-25) 2 commits
 - mailmap: avoid allocation when reading from blob
 - mailmap: handle mailmap blobs without trailing newlines

 Will merge to 'next'.


* jk/write-broken-index-with-nul-sha1 (2013-08-26) 1 commit
 - write_index: optionally allow broken null sha1s

 Am I waiting for another reroll?


* kk/tests-with-no-perl (2013-08-24) 4 commits
 - reset test: modernize style
 - t/t7106-reset-unborn-branch.sh: Add PERL prerequisite
 - add -i test: use skip_all instead of repeated PERL prerequisite
 - Make test "using invalid commit with -C" more strict

 Am I waiting for another reroll?


* mm/fast-import-feature-doc (2013-08-25) 1 commit
 - Documentation/fast-import: clarify summary for `feature` command

 Will merge to 'next'.


* mm/remote-helpers-doc (2013-08-26) 1 commit
 - Documentation/remote-helpers: document common use-case for private ref

 Will merge to 'next'.


* mn/doc-pack-heu-remove-dead-pastebin (2013-08-23) 1 commit
 - remove dead pastebin link from pack-heuristics document

 Will merge to 'next'.


* nd/fetch-pack-shallow-fix (2013-08-25) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-27 at 7c2a162)
 + fetch-pack: do not remove .git/shallow file when --depth is not specified

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-27

 Recent "short-cut clone connectivity check" topic broke a shallow
 repository when a fetch operation tries to auto-follow tags.

 Will merge to 'master', aiming to later apply to 1.8.4.x maintenance track.


* ta/user-manual (2013-08-24) 6 commits
 - Remove irrelevant reference from "Tying it all together"
 - Remove unnecessary historical note from "Object storage format"
 - Simplify "How to make a commit"
 - Use "git merge" instead of "git pull ."
 - Use current output for "git repack"
 - Call it "Git User Manual" and remove reference to very old Git version

 Update the user's manual to more recent versions of Git.

 I've picked up only the least questionable bits from a slightly
 larger series.


* tb/precompose-autodetect-fix (2013-08-27) 1 commit
 - Set core.precomposeunicode to true on e.g. HFS+

 Will merge to 'next'.

--------------------------------------------------
[Stalled]

* 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/list-objects-sans-blobs (2013-06-06) 4 commits
 . archive: ignore blob objects when checking reachability
 . list-objects: optimize "revs->blob_objects = 0" case
 . upload-archive: restrict remote objects with reachability check
 . clear parsed flag when we free tree buffers

 Attempt to allow "archive --remote=$there $arbitrary_sha1" while
 keeping the reachability safety.

 Seems to break some tests in a trivial and obvious way.


* 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'.


* 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
 parties.

 Not ready for inclusion.

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


* 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


* jc/show-branch (2013-06-07) 5 commits
 - show-branch: use commit slab to represent bitflags of arbitrary width
 - show-branch.c: remove "all_mask"
 - show-branch.c: abstract out "flags" operation
 - show-branch.c: lift all_mask/all_revs to a global static
 - show-branch.c: update comment style

 Waiting for the final step to lift the hard-limit before sending it out.

* tf/gitweb-ss-tweak (2013-08-20) 4 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-22 at 3978368)
 + gitweb: make search help link less ugly
 + gitweb: omit the repository owner when it is unset
 + gitweb: vertically centre contents of page footer
 + gitweb: ensure OPML text fits inside its box

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-22

 Tweak Gitweb CSS to layout some elements better.

 Will cook in 'next'.


* es/rebase-i-respect-core-commentchar (2013-08-18) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-20 at 9f3d0c8)
 + rebase -i: fix cases ignoring core.commentchar

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-20

 Will cook in 'next'.


* jx/branch-vv-always-compare-with-upstream (2013-08-26) 2 commits
 - status: always show tracking branch even no change
 - branch: report invalid tracking branch as gone

 "git branch -v -v" (and "git status") did not distinguish among a
 branch that does not build on any other branch, a branch that is in
 sync with the branch it builds on, and a branch that is configured
 to build on some other branch that no longer exists.

 Am I waiting for another reroll?


* nd/fetch-into-shallow (2013-08-18) 6 commits
 - list-objects: mark more commits as edges in mark_edges_uninteresting
 - list-objects: reduce one argument in mark_edges_uninteresting
 - upload-pack: delegate rev walking in shallow fetch to pack-objects
 - shallow: add setup_temporary_shallow()
 - shallow: only add shallow graft points to new shallow file
 - move setup_alternate_shallow and write_shallow_commits to shallow.c

 When there is no sufficient overlap between old and new history
 during a fetch into a shallow repository, we unnecessarily sent
 objects the sending side knows the receiving end has.

 Will merge to 'next'.


* sb/diff-delta-remove-needless-comparison (2013-08-18) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-20 at c35730b)

  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-20 at 140c2e4)

* jc/ls-files-killed-optim (2013-08-23) 4 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-27 at f7687d1)
 + dir.c::test_one_path(): work around directory_exists_in_index_icase() 
breakage
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-20 at d4bf1ad)
 + t3010: update to demonstrate "ls-files -k" optimization pitfalls
 + ls-files -k: a directory only can be killed if the index has a non-directory
 + dir.c: use the cache_* macro to access the current index

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-27

 "git ls-files -k" needs to crawl only the part of the working tree
 that may overlap the paths in the index to find killed files, but
 shared code with the logic to find all the untracked files, which
 made it unnecessarily inefficient.

 Will cook in 'next'.


* es/blame-L-twice (2013-08-06) 16 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-08 at 9d6f821)

 + t8001/t8002: blame: add tests of -L line numbers less than 1

 + log: teach -L/RE/ to search from end of previous -L range
 + blame: teach -L/RE/ to search from end of previous -L range
 + line-range: teach -L/RE/ to search relative to anchor point
 + blame: document multiple -L support
 + t8001/t8002: blame: add tests of multiple -L options
 + blame: accept multiple -L ranges
 + blame: inline one-line function into its lone caller
 + range-set: publish API for re-use by git-blame -L
 + line-range-format.txt: clarify -L:regex usage form
 + git-log.txt: place each -L option variation on its own line
 (this branch is used by es/contacts-blame-L-multi; uses es/blame-L-more.)

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-08

 Teaches "git blame" to take more than one -L ranges.

* mm/no-shell-escape-in-die-message (2013-08-07) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-08 at bddff86)
 + die_with_status: use "printf '%s\n'", not "echo"

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-08

 Fixes a minor bug in "git rebase -i" (there could be others, as the
 root cause is pretty generic) where the code feeds a random, data
 dependeant string to 'echo' and expects it to come out literally.

 Will cook in 'next'.


* tr/fd-gotcha-fixes (2013-08-06) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-08 at f452c5b)

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-08

 Finishing touches to an earlier fix already in 'master'.

* jc/transport-do-not-use-connect-twice-in-fetch (2013-08-07) 5 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-20 at 5414722)
 + fetch: work around "transport-take-over" hack
 + fetch: refactor code that fetches leftover tags
 + fetch: refactor code that prepares a transport
 + fetch: rename file-scope global "transport" to "gtransport"
 + t5802: add test for connect helper

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-20

 The auto-tag-following code in "git fetch" tries to reuse the same
 transport twice when the serving end does not cooperate and does
 not give tags that point to commits that are asked for as part of
 the primary transfer.  Unfortunately, Git-aware transport helper
 interface is not designed to be used more than once, hence this
 does not work over smart-http transfer.

 Will cook in 'next'.

 Update post-receive-email script to make sure the message contents
 and pathnames are encoded consistently in UTF-8.

 I have a feeling that it is a lost cause to solve the issue the
 topic tries to address in general, because the patch text can have
 payload in any encodings that are different from either the
 pathnames or the log message.  Patches that touch paths that use an
 encoding that conflicts with the encoding of the payload and/or the
 log message could be transferred with core.quotepath set and patch
 generated as all binary, but that would be pretty much useless.

 Convert most uses of OPT_BOOLEAN/OPTION_BOOLEAN that can use
 OPT_BOOL/OPTION_BOOLEAN which have much saner semantics, and turn
 remaining ones into OPT_SET_INT, OPT_COUNTUP, etc. as necessary.

 (this branch is used by sb/parseopt-boolean-removal.)

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-08

 Many commands use --dashed-option as a operation mode selector
 (e.g. "git tag --delete") that the user can use at most one
 (e.g. "git tag --delete --verify" is a nonsense) and you cannot
 negate (e.g. "git tag --no-delete" is a nonsense).  Make it easier
 for users of parse_options() to enforce these restrictions.

 + log: use true parents for diff even when rewriting

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-08

 Output from "git log --full-diff -- <pathspec>" looked strange,
 because comparison was done with the previous ancestor that touched
 the specified <pathspec>, causing the patches for paths outside the
 pathspec to show more than the single commit has changed.

 Tweak "git reflog -p" for the same reason using the same mechanism.

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-07-15

 "git check-ignore -z" applied the NUL termination to both its input
 (with --stdin) and its output, but "git check-attr -z" ignored the
 option on the output side.

 This is potentially a backward incompatible fix.  I am tempted to
 merge this to and keep it in 'next' for a while to see if anybody
 screams before deciding if we want to do anything to help existing
 users (there may be none).

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-07-21

 Allow fetch.prune and remote.*.prune configuration variables to be set,
 and "git fetch" to behave as if "--prune" is given.

 "git fetch" that honors remote.*.prune is fine, but I wonder if we
 should somehow make "git push" aware of it as well.  Perhaps
 remote.*.prune should not be just a boolean, but a 4-way "none",
 "push", "fetch", "both"?

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-08-05

 Allow a safer "rewind of the remote tip" push than blind "--force",
 by requiring that the overwritten remote ref to be unchanged since
 the new history to replace it was prepared.

 The machinery is more or less ready.  The "--force" option is again
 the big red button to override any safety, thanks to J6t's sanity
 (the original round allowed --lockref to defeat --force).

 The logic to choose the default implemented here is fragile
 (e.g. "git fetch" after seeing a failure will update the
 remote-tracking branch and will make the next "push" pass,
 defeating the safety pretty easily).  It is suitable only for the
 simplest workflows, and it may hurt users more than it helps them.
