Here are the topics that have been cooking. Commits prefixed with '-' are only in 'pu' (proposed updates) while commits prefixed with '+' are in 'next'.
The second release candidate has been tagged. Hopefully we can have an uneventful 1.8.5 final next week. 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] * jc/bundle (2013-11-12) 1 commit - bundle: use argv-array Code clean-up. * jj/log-doc (2013-11-13) 2 commits - Documentation/git-log.txt: mark-up fix and minor rephasing - Documentation/git-log: update "--log-size" description Mark-up fixes. Needs extra sets of eyeballs. * jj/rev-list-options-doc (2013-11-13) 1 commit - Documentation/rev-list-options: fix mark-ups and typos Mark-up fixes. Needs extra sets of eyeballs. * jk/remove-deprecated (2013-11-12) 4 commits (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-13 at c324792) + peek-remote: remove deprecated alias of ls-remote + lost-found: remove deprecated command + tar-tree: remove deprecated command + repo-config: remove deprecated alias for "git config" Will cook in 'next' until a distant future. * mi/typofixes (2013-11-12) 3 commits (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-13 at bb7c2eb) + contrib: typofixes + Documentation/technical/http-protocol.txt: typofixes + typofixes: fix misspelt comments Can wait in 'next'. * rh/remote-hg-bzr-updates (2013-11-12) 9 commits - remote-bzr, remote-hg: fix email address regular expression - test-hg.sh: help user correlate verbose output with email test - test-hg.sh: fix duplicate content strings in author tests - test-hg.sh: avoid obsolete 'test' syntax - test-hg.sh: eliminate 'local' bashism - test-bzr.sh, test-hg.sh: prepare for change to push.default=simple - test-bzr.sh, test-hg.sh: allow running from any dir - test-lib.sh: convert $TEST_DIRECTORY to an absolute path - remote-hg: don't decode UTF-8 paths into Unicode objects Will merge to 'next'. * tr/config-multivalue-lift-max (2013-11-13) 1 commit - config: arbitrary number of matches for --unset and --replace-all Will merge to 'next'. -------------------------------------------------- [Stalled] * tb/clone-ssh-with-colon-for-port (2013-11-04) 1 commit . git clone: is an URL local or ssh Still being reworked. * cn/thin-push-capability (2013-11-06) 2 commits - send-pack: only send a thin pack if the server supports it - receive-pack: advertise thin-pack Peff had a good suggestion to control this by expressing what the receiving end wants in a more direct way, namely to advertise a 'no-thin' trait in the capability list, which seems to be favored by Shawn, too. * jt/commit-fixes-footer (2013-10-30) 1 commit - commit: Add -f, --fixes <commit> option to add Fixes: line There is an ongoing discussion around this topic; in general I am fairly negative on a new feature that is too narrow and prefer a more generic solution that can be tailored for specific needs, as many people stated in the thread. It appears that the discussion stalled. * np/pack-v4 (2013-09-18) 90 commits . packv4-parse.c: add tree offset caching . t1050: replace one instance of show-index with verify-pack . index-pack, pack-objects: allow creating .idx v2 with .pack v4 . unpack-objects: decode v4 trees . unpack-objects: allow to save processed bytes to a buffer - ... Nico and Duy advancing the eternal vaporware pack-v4. This is here primarily for wider distribution of the preview edition. Temporarily ejected from 'pu', to try out jk/pack-bitmap, which this topic conflicts with. * jk/pack-bitmap (2013-10-30) 20 commits - count-objects: recognize .bitmap in garbage-checking - pack-bitmap: implement optional name_hash cache - t: add basic bitmap functionality tests - repack: consider bitmaps when performing repacks - repack: handle optional files created by pack-objects - repack: turn exts array into array-of-struct - repack: stop using magic number for ARRAY_SIZE(exts) - pack-objects: implement bitmap writing - rev-list: add bitmap mode to speed up object lists - pack-objects: use bitmaps when packing objects - pack-bitmap: add support for bitmap indexes - documentation: add documentation for the bitmap format - ewah: compressed bitmap implementation - compat: add endianness helpers - sha1_file: export `git_open_noatime` - revision: allow setting custom limiter function - pack-objects: factor out name_hash - pack-objects: refactor the packing list - revindex: export new APIs - sha1write: make buffer const-correct Borrows the bitmap index into packfiles from JGit to speed up enumeration of objects involved in a commit range without having to fully traverse the history. Waiting for a reroll. * mf/graph-show-root (2013-10-25) 1 commit . graph.c: mark root commit differently In a repository with multiple-roots, "log --graph", especially with "--oneline", does not give the reader enough visual cue to see where one line of history ended and a separate history began. This is the version that marks the roots 'x' when they would have been marked as '*'; Keshav Kini suggested an alternative of giving an extra blank line after every root, which I tend to think is a better approach to the problem. * tg/perf-lib-test-perf-cleanup (2013-09-19) 2 commits - perf-lib: add test_perf_cleanup target - perf-lib: split starting the test from the execution Add test_perf_cleanup shell function to the perf suite, that allows the script writers to define a test with a clean-up action. Holding until needed. * yt/shortened-rename (2013-10-18) 2 commits - SQUASH??? style fixes and s/omit/shorten/ where appropriate - diff.c: keep arrow(=>) on show_stats()'s shortened filename part to make rename visible Attempts to give more weight on the fact that a filepair represents a rename than showing substring of the actual path when diffstat lines are not wide enough. I am not sure if that is solving a right problem, though. * 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. $gmane/228294 * 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. * 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. -------------------------------------------------- [Cooking] * kb/doc-exclude-directory-semantics (2013-11-07) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-13 at 06e5645) + gitignore.txt: clarify recursive nature of excluded directories Can wait in 'next'. * jc/create-directories-microopt (2013-11-11) 1 commit - checkout: most of the time we have good leading directories Of unknown value until tested on non-Linux platforms (especially Windows). Will hold. * jl/submodule-update-retire-orig-flags (2013-11-11) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-13 at 4b70d15) + submodule update: remove unnecessary orig_flags variable Code clean-up. Can wait in 'next'. * jn/mediawiki-makefile-updates (2013-11-11) 4 commits (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-13 at 71c8d20) + git-remote-mediawiki build: handle DESTDIR/INSTLIBDIR with whitespace + git-remote-mediawiki build: make 'install' command configurable + git-remote-mediawiki: honor DESTDIR in "make install" + git-remote-mediawiki: do not remove installed files in "clean" target Build and Installation procedure clean-up. Can wait in 'next'. * tb/doc-fetch-pack-url (2013-11-11) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-13 at 90d6832) + git-fetch-pack uses URLs like git-fetch Can wait in 'next'. * cc/remote-remove-redundant-postfixcmp (2013-11-06) 2 commits (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-06 at 7b45219) + Rename suffixcmp() to has_suffix() and invert its result (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-04 at 6408502) + builtin/remote: remove postfixcmp() and use suffixcmp() instead Minor code clean-up. Can wait in 'next'. * nd/wt-status-align-i18n (2013-11-06) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-13 at b033aa0) + wt-status: take the alignment burden off translators An attempt to automatically align the names in the "git status" output, taking the display width of (translated) section labels into account. Can wait in 'next'. * nv/commit-gpgsign-config (2013-11-06) 1 commit - Add the commit.gpgsign option to sign all commits Introduce commit.gpgsign configuration variable to force every commit to be GPG signed. Needs tests, perhaps? * sb/sha1-loose-object-info-check-existence (2013-11-06) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-06 at 1ea5b18) + sha1_loose_object_info(): do not return success on missing object "git cat-file --batch-check=ok" did not check the existence of the named object. Will cook in 'next'. * gj/push-more-verbose-advice (2013-11-13) 2 commits - push: switch default from "matching" to "simple" - push: enhance unspecified push default warning Explain 'simple' and 'matching' in "git push" advice message; the topmost patch is a rebase of jc/push-2.0-default-to-simple on top of it. Will cook in 'next'. The first one should be merged to 'master' soon after the next cycle opens; the other to replace jc/push-2.0-default-to-simple. * rr/for-each-ref-decoration (2013-11-13) 5 commits - fixup! for-each-ref: introduce %(color:...) for color - for-each-ref: introduce %(color:...) for color - fixup! for-each-ref: introduce %(upstream:track[short]) - for-each-ref: introduce %(upstream:track[short]) - for-each-ref: introduce %(HEAD) asterisk marker Needs fix-ups, aut-reset, --color=auto support, and tests. but it is a good start. * jk/two-way-merge-corner-case-fix (2013-11-04) 3 commits (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-04 at 79f4fb0) + t1005: add test for "read-tree --reset -u A B" + t1005: reindent + unpack-trees: fix "read-tree -u --reset A B" with conflicted index Fix a rather longstanding corner-case bug in twoway "reset to there" merge, which is most often seen in "git am --abort". Will cook in 'next'. * jc/ref-excludes (2013-11-01) 5 commits (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-04 at fac1ed0) + rev-parse: introduce --exclude=<glob> to tame wildcards + rev-list --exclude: export add/clear-ref-exclusion and ref-excluded API + rev-list --exclude: tests + 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. Can wait in 'next'. * jk/replace-perl-in-built-scripts (2013-10-29) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-01 at 2384e29) + use @@PERL@@ in built scripts Can wait in 'next'. * fc/transport-helper-fixes (2013-11-13) 12 commits - remote-bzr: support the new 'force' option - transport-helper: add support to delete branches - fast-export: add support to delete refs - fast-import: add support to delete refs - transport-helper: add support for old:new refspec - fast-export: add new --refspec option - fast-export: improve argument parsing - test-hg.sh: tests are now expected to pass - transport-helper: check for 'forced update' message - transport-helper: add 'force' to 'export' helpers - transport-helper: don't update refs in dry-run - transport-helper: mismerge fix Updates transport-helper, fast-import and fast-export to allow the ref mapping and ref deletion in a way similar to the natively supported transports. * jh/loose-object-dirs-creation-race (2013-10-28) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-01 at 3169b0f) + sha1_file.c:create_tmpfile(): Fix race when creating loose object dirs Will cook in 'next'. * nd/liteal-pathspecs (2013-10-28) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-01 at 1a91775) + pathspec: stop --*-pathspecs impact on internal parse_pathspec() uses Will cook in 'next'. * th/reflog-annotated-tag (2013-10-28) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-01 at 8b154cc) + reflog: handle lightweight and annotated tags equally "git log -g $annotated_tag", when there is no reflog history, should have produced a single output entry (i.e. the ref creation event), but instead showed the history leading to the tag. Broken at the design level. Any reflog entry that points at a non commit needs to be handled with new code that does not exist yet, and lifting the "this code handles only commits" without adding such code does not solve anything. * tr/merge-recursive-index-only (2013-10-28) 3 commits - merge-recursive: -Xindex-only to leave worktree unchanged - merge-recursive: internal flag to avoid touching the worktree - merge-recursive: remove dead conditional in update_stages() Will hold until using script appears. * bc/http-100-continue (2013-10-31) 3 commits (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-01 at e12ae23) + remote-curl: fix large pushes with GSSAPI + remote-curl: pass curl slot_results back through run_slot + http: return curl's AUTHAVAIL via slot_results Issue "100 Continue" responses to help use of GSS-Negotiate authentication scheme over HTTP transport when needed. Will cook in 'next'. * jc/merge-base-reflog (2013-10-29) 2 commits (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-01 at 6114764) + merge-base: teach "--fork-point" mode + merge-base: use OPT_CMDMODE and clarify the command line parsing Code the logic in "pull --rebase" that figures out a fork point from reflog entries in C. Will cook in 'next'. * jk/robustify-parse-commit (2013-10-24) 6 commits (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-01 at 2bfbaab) + checkout: do not die when leaving broken detached HEAD + use parse_commit_or_die instead of custom message + use parse_commit_or_die instead of segfaulting + assume parse_commit checks for NULL commit + assume parse_commit checks commit->object.parsed + log_tree_diff: die when we fail to parse a commit Will cook in 'next'. * mh/fetch-tags-in-addition-to-normal-refs (2013-10-30) 23 commits (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-06 at 6932893) + fetch: improve the error messages emitted for conflicting refspecs + handle_duplicate(): mark error message for translation + ref_remote_duplicates(): extract a function handle_duplicate() + ref_remove_duplicates(): simplify loop logic + t5536: new test of refspec conflicts when fetching + ref_remove_duplicates(): avoid redundant bisection + git-fetch.txt: improve description of tag auto-following + fetch-options.txt: simplify ifdef/ifndef/endif usage + fetch, remote: properly convey --no-prune options to subprocesses + builtin/remote.c:update(): use struct argv_array + builtin/remote.c: reorder function definitions + query_refspecs(): move some constants out of the loop + fetch --prune: prune only based on explicit refspecs + fetch --tags: fetch tags *in addition to* other stuff + fetch: only opportunistically update references based on command line + get_expanded_map(): avoid memory leak + get_expanded_map(): add docstring + builtin/fetch.c: reorder function definitions + get_ref_map(): rename local variables + api-remote.txt: correct section "struct refspec" + t5510: check that "git fetch --prune --tags" does not prune branches + t5510: prepare test refs more straightforwardly + t5510: use the correct tag name in test The "-tags" option to "git fetch" used to be literally a synonym to a "refs/tags/*:refs/tags/*" refspec, which meant that (1) as an explicit refspec given from the command line, it silenced the lazy "git fetch" default that is configured, and (2) also as an explicit refspec given from the command line, it interacted with "--prune" to remove any tag that the remote we are fetching from does not have. This demotes it to an option; with it, we fetch all tags in addition to what would be fetched without the option, and it does not interact with the decision "--prune" makes to see what remote-tracking refs the local has are missing the remote counterpart. Will cook in 'next'. * nv/parseopt-opt-arg (2013-10-31) 2 commits (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-01 at cd2afd9) + rev-parse --parseopt: add the --stuck-long mode + Use the word 'stuck' instead of 'sticked' Enhance "rev-parse --parseopt" mode to help parsing options with an optional parameter. Will cook in 'next'. * ak/submodule-foreach-quoting (2013-09-27) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2013-10-14 at d77c5f1) + submodule foreach: skip eval for more than one argument A behavior change, but a worthwhile one: "git submodule foreach" was treating its arguments as part of a single command to be concatenated and passed to a shell, making writing buggy scripts too easy. This patch preserves the old "just pass it to the shell" behavior when a single argument is passed to 'git submodule foreach' and moves to a new "skip the shell and use the arguments passed unmolested" behavior when more than one argument is passed. The old behavior (always concatenating and passing to the shell) was similar to the 'ssh' command, while the new behavior (switching on the number of arguments) is what 'xterm -e' does. May need more thought to make sure this change is advertised well so that scripts that used multiple arguments but added their own extra layer of quoting are not broken. Will cook in 'next'. * kb/fast-hashmap (2013-11-07) 16 commits - fixup! builtin/update-index.c: cleanup update_one - fixup! read-cache.c: fix memory leaks caused by removed cache entries - read-cache.c: fix memory leaks caused by removed cache entries - builtin/update-index.c: cleanup update_one - fix 'git update-index --verbose --again' output - remove old hash.[ch] implementation - name-hash.c: remove cache entries instead of marking them CE_UNHASHED - name-hash.c: use new hash map implementation for cache entries - name-hash.c: remove unreferenced directory entries - name-hash.c: use new hash map implementation for directories - diffcore-rename.c: use new hash map implementation - diffcore-rename.c: simplify finding exact renames - diffcore-rename.c: move code around to prepare for the next patch - buitin/describe.c: use new hash map implementation - add a hashtable implementation that supports O(1) removal - submodule: don't access the .gitmodules cache entry after removing it Improvements to our hash table to get it to meet the needs of the msysgit fscache project, with some nice performance improvements. The preparatory clean-up to submodule from Jens is at the bottom. I also squashed in a fix-up by Karsten found at $gmane/236468 (please double-check the result). This is a reroll one after the valgrind breakage report ($gmane/236869). Waiting for a reroll. * jn/add-2.0-u-A-sans-pathspec (2013-04-26) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2013-10-28 at d8cdf30) + git add: -u/-A now affects the entire working tree Will cook in 'next' until Git 2.0. * jc/core-checkstat-2.0 (2013-05-06) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2013-10-28 at f1bec96) + core.statinfo: remove as promised in Git 2.0 Will cook in 'next' until Git 2.0. * jc/push-2.0-default-to-simple (2013-06-18) 1 commit (merged to 'next' on 2013-10-28 at 3153a9e) + 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 (merged to 'next' on 2013-10-28 at 5fd76ec) + 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 (merged to 'next' on 2013-11-01 at 5fc26e4) + diff: remove "diff-files -q" in a version of Git in a distant future Will cook in 'next' until a distant future. -- 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
