[Graduated to "master"]

* jc/commit-is-spelled-with-two-ems (2013-09-05) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-05 at 982aef2)
 + typofix: cherry is spelled with two ars
 + typofix: commit is spelled with two ems

* jc/pager-configuration-doc (2013-08-29) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-05 at 3169083)
 + config: rewrite core.pager documentation

 It was unclear in the documentation how various configurations and
 environment variables determine which pager is eventually used.

* jk/config-int-range-check (2013-09-09) 5 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-09 at 9ab779d)
 + git-config: always treat --int as 64-bit internally
 + config: make numeric parsing errors more clear
 + config: set errno in numeric git_parse_* functions
 + config: properly range-check integer values
 + config: factor out integer parsing from range checks

 "git config" did not provide a way to set or access numbers larger
 than a native "int" on the platform; it now provides 64-bit signed
 integers on all platforms.

* mm/fast-import-feature-doc (2013-08-25) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-05 at 83802e2)
 + Documentation/fast-import: clarify summary for `feature` command

* mm/mediawiki-dumb-push-fix (2013-09-03) 4 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-05 at f8313f4)
 + git-remote-mediawiki: no need to update private ref in non-dumb push
 + git-remote-mediawiki: use no-private-update capability on dumb push
 + transport-helper: add no-private-update capability

* jc/url-match (2013-09-12) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-13 at 7b94f8e)
 + urlmatch.c: recompute pointer after append_normalized_escapes

 While normalizing a URL, we forgot that the buffer that holds it
 could be relocated when it grows, which was a brown-paper-bag bug
 that can lead to a crash introduced on 'master' post 1.8.4 release.

 Will merge to 'master' in the fourth batch.

* jx/relative-path-regression-fix (2013-09-13) 3 commits
 - Use simpler relative_path when set_git_dir
 - relative_path should honor dos_drive_prefix
 - test: use unambigous leading path (/foo) for mingw
 (this branch uses jx/clean-interactive.)

* nd/unpack-entry-optim-in-pack-objects (2013-09-13) 1 commit
 - pack-objects: no crc check when the cached version is used

 The codepath to use data from packfiles that is only exercised in
 pack-objects unnecessarily checked crc checksum of the pack data,
 even when it ends up using in-core copy that it got by reading from
 the pack (at which point the checksum was validated).

 Will merge to 'next'.


* jc/ref-excludes (2013-09-03) 2 commits
 - document --exclude option
 - revision: introduce --exclude=<glob> to tame wildcards

 People often wished a way to tell "git log --branches" (and "git
 log --remotes --not --branches") to exclude some local branches
 from the expansion of "--branches" (similarly for "--tags", "--all"
 and "--glob=<pattern>").  Now they have one.

 Needs a matching change to rev-parse.

* 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

* 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.

* 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.

* 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

 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.

* 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.


* bc/send-email-ssl-die-message-fix (2013-09-10) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-13 at c6fcdf4)
 + send-email: don't call methods on undefined values

 When send-email comes up with an error message to die with upon
 failure to start an SSL session, it tried to read the error string
 from a wrong place.

 Will merge to 'master' in the fourth batch.

* jc/checkout-detach-doc (2013-09-11) 1 commit
 - checkout: update synopsys and documentation on detaching HEAD

 "git checkout [--detach] <commit>" was listed poorly in the
 synopsis section of its documentation.

* jc/cvsserver-perm-bit-fix (2013-09-11) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-13 at 56db105)
 + cvsserver: pick up the right mode bits

 "git cvsserver" computed the permission mode bits incorrectly for
 executable files.

 - MinGW: Fix stat definitions to work with MinGW runtime version 4.0
 - MSVC: fix stat definition hell
 - MSVC: fix compile errors due to macro redefinitions
 - MSVC: fix compile errors due to missing libintl.h

 Build updates for Windows port.

* lc/filter-branch-too-many-refs (2013-09-12) 1 commit
 - Allow git-filter-branch to process large repositories with lots of branches.

 "git filter-branch" in a repository with many refs blew limit of
 command line length.

* mm/commit-template-squelch-advice-messages (2013-09-12) 3 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-13 at 410d207)
 + commit: disable status hints when writing to COMMIT_EDITMSG
 + wt-status: turn advice_status_hints into a field of wt_status
 + commit: factor status configuration is a helper function

 From the commit log template, remove irrelevant "advice" messages
 that are shared with "git status" output.

* np/lookup-object-hashing (2013-09-11) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-12 at d835ef6)
 + lookup_object: remove hashtable_index() and optimize hash_obj()

 Micro optimize hash function used in the object hash table.

* js/add-i-mingw (2013-09-04) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-10 at 50ab841)
 + add--interactive: fix external command invocation on Windows

 The implementation of "add -i" has a crippling code to work around
 ActiveState Perl limitation but it by mistake also triggered on Git
 for Windows where MSYS perl is used.

 Will merge to 'master' in the fourth batch.

* rh/ishes-doc (2013-09-04) 7 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-10 at 3611e8a)
 + glossary: fix and clarify the definition of 'ref'
 + revisions.txt: fix and clarify <rev>^{<type>}
 + glossary: more precise definition of tree-ish (a.k.a. treeish)
 + use 'commit-ish' instead of 'committish'
 + use 'tree-ish' instead of 'treeish'
 + glossary: define commit-ish (a.k.a. committish)
 + glossary: mention 'treeish' as an alternative to 'tree-ish'

 We liberally use "committish" and "commit-ish" (and "treeish" and
 "tree-ish"); as these are non-words, let's unify these terms to
 their dashed form.  More importantly, clarify the documentation on
 object peeling using these terms.

* bc/http-backend-allow-405 (2013-09-12) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-12 at bc1719f)
 + http-backend: provide Allow header for 405

 When the webserver responds with "405 Method Not Allowed", it
 should tell the client what methods are allowed with the "Allow"

* dw/check-ignore-sans-index (2013-09-12) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-13 at 8daec3c)
 + check-ignore: Add option to ignore index contents

 "git check-ignore" follows the same rule as "git add" and "git
 status" in that the ignore/exclude mechanism does not take effect
 on paths that are already tracked.  With "--no-index" option, it
 can be used to diagnose which paths that should have been ignored
 have been mistakenly added to the index.

* hu/cherry-pick-previous-branch (2013-09-09) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-12 at 36e4d9b)
 + cherry-pick: allow "-" as abbreviation of '@{-1}'

 Just like "git checkout -" knows to check out and "git merge -"
 knows to merge the branch you were previously on, teach "git
 cherry-pick" to understand "-" as the previous branch.

* jh/checkout-auto-tracking (2013-09-09) 5 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-13 at 2aa1553)
 + branch.c: Relax unnecessary requirement on upstream's remote ref name
 + t3200: Add test demonstrating minor regression in 41c21f2
 + Refer to branch.<name>.remote/merge when documenting --track
 + t3200: Minor fix when preparing for tracking failure
 + t2024: Fix &&-chaining and a couple of typos

 Fix a minor regression in v1.8.3.2 and later that made it
 impossible to base your local work on anything but a local branch
 of the upstream repository you are tracking from.

 Remove now disused remote-helpers framework for helpers written in

 Will merge to 'master' in the fourth batch.

* jk/upload-pack-keepalive (2013-09-09) 2 commits
 - upload-pack: bump keepalive default to 5 seconds
 - upload-pack: send keepalive packets during pack computation

 When running "fetch -q", a long silence while the sender side
 computes the set of objects to send can be mistaken by proxies as
 dropped connection.

* mm/rebase-continue-freebsd-WB (2013-09-09) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-13 at 82e8b91)
 + rebase: fix run_specific_rebase's use of "return" on FreeBSD

 Work around a bug in FreeBSD shell that caused a regression to "git
 rebase" in v1.8.4.  It would be lovely to hear from FreeBSD folks a
 success report to make sure we didn't miss any other use of a bare
 "return" from dot-sourced script.

* ss/doclinks (2013-09-06) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-10 at 2d029a9)
 + Documentation: make AsciiDoc links always point to HTML files

 When we converted many documents that were traditionally text-only
 to be formatted to AsciiDoc, we did not update links that point at
 them to refer to the formatted HTML files.

* uh/git-svn-serf-fix (2013-09-06) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-13 at d65a9a1)
 + git-svn: fix termination issues for remote svn connections

 "git-svn" used with SVN 1.8.0 when talking over https:// connection
 dumped core due to a bug in the serf library that SVN uses.  Work
 it around on our side, even though the SVN side is being fixed.

 + refs: factor delete_ref loose ref step into a helper
 + refs: factor update_ref steps into helpers
 + refs: report ref type from lock_any_ref_for_update
 + reset: rename update_refs to reset_refs

 Give "update-refs" a "--stdin" option to read multiple update
 requests and perform them in an all-or-none fashion.

* fc/at-head (2013-09-12) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-13 at d3800c2)
 + Add new @ shortcut for HEAD
 + sha1-name: pass len argument to interpret_branch_name()

 Attempt to resurrect "Type @ for HEAD"; the bottom one seems to be
 a genuine code improvement, but identifying cases where "@" means
 HEAD were harder than it should have been.  I think the result of
 squashing the tip one in covers all the necessary cases.

  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-09 at 8d5d396)

  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-09 at c9cfbaa)
 + pager: turn on "cat" optimization for DEFAULT_PAGER

 If a build-time fallback is set to "cat" instead of "less", we
 should apply the same "no subprocess or pipe" optimization as we
 apply to user-supplied GIT_PAGER=cat.

 We made sure that we notice the user-supplied GIT_DIR is actually a
 gitfile, but failed to do so when the default ".git" is a gitfile.

 Make "foo^{tag}" to peel a tag to itself, i.e. no-op., and fail if
 "foo" is not a tag.

* cc/replace-with-the-same-type (2013-09-09) 8 commits
 - Doc: 'replace' merge and non-merge commits
 - t6050-replace: use some long option names
 - replace: allow long option names
 - Documentation/replace: add Creating Replacement Objects section
 - t6050-replace: add test to clean up all the replace refs
 - t6050-replace: test that objects are of the same type
 - Documentation/replace: state that objects must be of the same type
 - replace: forbid replacing an object with one of a different type

 Using the replace mechanism to swap an object with another object
 of a different type can introduce inconsistency (e.g. a tree
 expects an object name to refer to a blob, but the blob object can
 be mistakenly or maliciously replaced with an object with a
 different type). Attempt to forbid such.

  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-12 at 89161b8)

 + tests: don't set status.displayCommentPrefix file-wide
 + status: disable display of '#' comment prefix by default
 + submodule summary: ignore --for-status option
 + wt-status: use argv_array API
 + builtin/stripspace.c: fix broken indentation

 Allow "git status" to omit the prefix to make its output a comment
 in a commit log editor, which is not necessary for human

 We may want to tighten the output to omit unnecessary trailing
 blank lines, but that does not have to be in the scope of this

  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-10 at 423c8f6)
 + diff --no-index: describe in a separate paragraph
 + 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.

  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-09 at 79d5a20)
 + 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.

 + write_index: optionally allow broken null sha1s

 Earlier we started rejecting an attempt to add 0{40} object name to
 the index and to tree objects, but it sometimes is necessary to
 allow so to be able to use tools like filter-branch to correct such
 broken tree objects.

 Some tests were not skipped under NO_PERL build.

 Will merge to 'master' in the fourth batch.

 + Set core.precomposeunicode to true on e.g. HFS+

 On MacOS X, we detected if the filesystem needs the "pre-composed
 unicode strings" workaround, but did not automatically enable it.
 Now we do.

 Will merge to 'master' in the fourth batch.

 + 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.

 Will merge to 'master' in the fifth batch.

* nd/fetch-into-shallow (2013-08-28) 7 commits

 + Add testcase for needless objects during a shallow fetch
 + 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 'master' in the fifth batch.

* ks/p4-view-spec (2013-09-03) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-09-10 at 8ceb2ec)
 + git p4: implement view spec wildcards with "p4 where"
 + git p4 test: sanitize P4CHARSET

 Replaced with a reroll that was whitespace damaged.

 Will merge to 'master' in the fourth batch.

* tr/merge-recursive-index-only (2013-07-07) 3 commits
 - merge-recursive: -Xindex-only to leave worktree unchanged
 - merge-recursive: untangle double meaning of o->call_depth
 - merge-recursive: remove dead conditional in update_stages()

 Will hold, until we get any user.

* jc/reflog-doc (2013-06-19) 1 commit
 - setup_reflog_action: document the rules for using GIT_REFLOG_ACTION

 Document rules to use GIT_REFLOG_ACTION variable in the scripted
 Porcelain.  git-rebase--interactive locally violates this, but it
 is a leaf user that does not call out to or dot-sources other
 scripts, so fixing it is not all that urgent.

* jn/add-2.0-u-A-sans-pathspec (2013-04-26) 1 commit
 - git add: -u/-A now affects the entire working tree

 Will cook in 'next' until Git 2.0.

 - core.statinfo: remove as promised in Git 2.0

 Will cook in 'next' until Git 2.0.

 - push: switch default from "matching" to "simple"

 Will cook in 'next' until Git 2.0.

* jc/add-2.0-ignore-removal (2013-04-22) 1 commit
 - git add <pathspec>... defaults to "-A"

 Updated endgame for "git add <pathspec>" that defaults to "--all"
 aka "--no-ignore-removal".

 Will cook in 'next' until Git 2.0.

* jc/hold-diff-remove-q-synonym-for-no-deletion (2013-07-19) 1 commit
 - diff: remove "diff-files -q" in a version of Git in a distant future

 Will cook in 'next' until a distant future.


* jc/pull-training-wheel (2013-07-19) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-08-28 at c39bd15)
 + pull: require choice between rebase/merge on non-fast-forward pull

 Make "git pull" (without arguments that say what branch to
 integrate from where) refuse with "it does not fast forward; choose
 between 'pull --merge' and 'pull --rebase'".

 This topic has been reverted from 'next'.  Will wait for the
 conclusion of the discussion to seek a more user-friendly
 alternative; it is likely that it will be based on the simpler
 approach Felipe posted earlier.
