What's cooking in git.git (Mar 2014, #01; Tue, 4)

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

A handful of "GSoC warm-up microprojects" have been queued on 'pu'.
Thanks for reviewing them.

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

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2014-01-29

 Allow "merge-recursive" to work in an empty (temporary) working
 tree again when there are renames involved, correcting an old
 regression in 1.7.7 era.

* bs/stdio-undef-before-redef (2014-01-31) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-02-25 at 77c4b5f)
 + git-compat-util.h: #undef (v)snprintf before #define them

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2014-01-31

 When we replace broken macros from stdio.h in git-compat-util.h,
 #undef them to avoid re-definition warnings from the C

  (merged to 'next' on 2014-02-25 at b9e4f61)
 + pull: add --ff-only to the help text
 + pull: add pull.ff configuration

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2014-01-22

 "git pull" learned to pay attention to pull.ff configuration

  (merged to 'next' on 2014-02-25 at bba6e79)
 + rev-parse: check i before using argv[i] against argc

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2014-01-31

 "git rev-parse --default" without the required option argument did
 not diagnose it as an error.

  (merged to 'next' on 2014-02-25 at 3604f75)
 + handle_path_include: don't look at NULL value
 + expand_user_path: do not look at NULL path

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2014-01-31

 include.path variable (or any variable that expects a path that can
 use ~username expansion) in the configuration file is not a
 boolean, but the code failed to check it.

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2014-02-13

 Borrow 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.

  (merged to 'next' on 2014-02-25 at 86ce2e4)
 + tests: auto-set git-daemon port

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2014-01-03

 Improvements to our hash table to get it to meet the needs of the
 msysgit fscache project, with some nice performance improvements.

 + t0060: add test for prefix_path when path == work tree

 + t3004: add test for ls-files on symlinks via absolute paths

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2014-02-06

 All subcommands that take pathspecs mishandled an in-tree symbolic
 link when given it as a full path from the root (which arguably is
 a sick way to use pathspecs).  "git ls-files -s $(pwd)/RelNotes" in
 our tree is an easy reproduction recipe.

* nd/diff-quiet-stat-dirty (2014-02-24) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-02-25 at 7cad1d3)
 + diff: do not quit early on stat-dirty files
 + diff.c: move diffcore_skip_stat_unmatch core logic out for reuse later

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2014-01-31

 "git diff --quiet -- pathspec1 pathspec2" sometimes did not return
 correct status value.

* nd/http-fetch-shallow-fix (2014-02-13) 7 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-02-25 at ad4e9c9)

 + test: rename http fetch and push test files
 + tests: auto-set LIB_HTTPD_PORT from test name
 (this branch is tangled with jk/test-ports.)

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2014-02-13

 Attempting to deepen a shallow repository by fetching over smart
 HTTP transport failed in the protocol exchange, when no-done
 extension was used.  The fetching side waited for the list of
 shallow boundary commits after the sending end stopped talking to

* nd/reset-intent-to-add (2014-02-05) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-02-25 at 0c48245)

* nd/submodule-pathspec-ending-with-slash (2014-02-24) 8 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-02-25 at 954b7a2)
 + clean: use cache_name_is_other()
 + clean: replace match_pathspec() with dir_path_match()
 + pathspec: pass directory indicator to match_pathspec_item()
 + match_pathspec: match pathspec "foo/" against directory "foo"
 + dir.c: prepare match_pathspec_item for taking more flags
 + pathspec: rename match_pathspec_depth() to match_pathspec()
 + pathspec: convert some match_pathspec_depth() to dir_path_match()
 + pathspec: convert some match_pathspec_depth() to ce_path_match()

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2014-01-31

 Allow "git cmd path/", when the 'path' is where a submodule is
 bound to the top-level working tree, to match 'path', despite the
 extra and unnecessary trailing slash.

* nd/test-rename-reset (2014-02-04) 1 commit

* nv/commit-gpgsign-config (2014-02-24) 3 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-02-25 at 0baefa2)
 + test the commit.gpgsign config option
 + commit-tree: add and document --no-gpg-sign
 + commit-tree: add the commit.gpgsign option to sign all commits

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2014-01-03

 Introduce commit.gpgsign configuration variable to force every
 commit to be GPG signed.  The variable cannot be overriden from the
 command line of some of the commands that create commits except for
 "git commit" and "git commit-tree", but I am not convinced that it
 is a good idea to sprinkle support for --no-gpg-sign everywhere,
 which in turn means that this configuration variable may not be
 such a good idea.

* wk/submodule-on-branch (2014-02-24) 4 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-02-25 at c6d9fef)
 + Documentation: describe 'submodule update --remote' use case
 + submodule: explicit local branch creation in module_clone
 + submodule: document module_clone arguments in comments
 + submodule: make 'checkout' update_module mode more explicit

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2014-02-06

 Make sure 'submodule update' modes that do not detach HEADs can
 be used more pleasantly by checking out a concrete branch when
 cloning them to prime the well.

[New Topics]

* jc/stash-pop-not-popped (2014-02-26) 1 commit
 - stash pop: mention we did not drop the stash upon failing to apply

 "stash pop", upon failing to apply the stash, refrains from
 discarding the stash to avoid information loss.  Be more explicit
 in the error message.

 The wording may want to get a bit more bikeshedding, but otherwise
 it should be OK for 'next'.

* bg/install-branch-config-skip-prefix (2014-02-28) 2 commits
 - branch: use skip_prefix() in install_branch_config()
 - t3200-branch: test setting branch as own upstream

 The new test probably wants the longer-term effect of the rejected
 operation, not just the rejection warning message.

* cn/fetch-prune-overlapping-destination (2014-02-28) 2 commits
 - fetch: handle overlaping refspecs on --prune
 - fetch: add a failing test for prunning with overlapping refspecs

 Protect refs in a hierarchy that can come from more than one remote
 hierarcies from incorrect removal by "git fetch --prune".


* dd/find-graft-with-sha1-pos (2014-02-27) 1 commit
 - commit.c: use the generic "sha1_pos" function for lookup

 Replace a hand-rolled binary search with a call to our generic
 binary search helper function.

 - cache-tree.c: use ALLOC_GROW() in find_subtree()
 - bundle.c: use ALLOC_GROW() in add_to_ref_list()
 - builtin/pack-objects.c: use ALLOC_GROW() in check_pbase_path()

 Replace open-coded reallocation with ALLOC_GROW() macro. 

* dk/skip-prefix-scan-only-once (2014-03-03) 1 commit
 - skip_prefix(): scan prefix only once

 Updaste implementation of skip_prefix() to scan only once; given
 that most "prefix" arguments to the inline function are constant
 strings whose strlen() can be determined at the compile time, this
 might actually make things worse with a compiler with sufficient

* jk/doc-coding-guideline (2014-02-28) 1 commit
 - CodingGuidelines: mention C whitespace rules

 Elaborate on a style niggle that has been part of "mimic existing

 Will merge to 'next'.

* jk/shallow-update-fix (2014-02-27) 2 commits
 - shallow: automatically clean up shallow tempfiles
 - shallow: use stat_validity to check for up-to-date file

 Serving objects from a shallow repository needs to write a
 temporary file to be used, but the serving upload-pack may not have
 write access to the repository which is meant to be read-only.

* jl/doc-submodule-update-checkout (2014-02-28) 1 commit
 - submodule update: consistently document the '--checkout' option

 Add missing documentation for "submodule update --checkout".

 Will merge to 'next'.

* jn/bisect-coding-style (2014-03-03) 1 commit
 - git-bisect.sh: fix a few style issues

 Will merge to 'next'.

 - tag: support --sort=<spec>

 Allow v1.9.0 sorted before v1.10.0 in "git tag --list" output.

* rt/help-pretty-prints-cmd-names (2014-02-28) 1 commit
 - help.c: rename function "pretty_print_string_list"

 Will merge to 'next'.

* sg/archive-restrict-remote (2014-02-28) 2 commits
 - add uploadarchive.allowUnreachable option
 - docs: clarify remote restrictions for git-upload-archive

 Allow loosening remote "git archive" invocation security check that
 refuses to serve tree-ish not at the tip of any ref.

 Will merge to 'next'.

* sh/finish-tmp-packfile (2014-03-03) 2 commits
 - finish_tmp_packfile():use strbuf for pathname construction
 - Merge branch 'sh/write-pack-file-warning-message-fix' into 
 (this branch uses sh/write-pack-file-warning-message-fix.)

* sh/write-pack-file-warning-message-fix (2014-03-03) 1 commit
 - write_pack_file: use correct variable in diagnostic
 (this branch is used by sh/finish-tmp-packfile.)

 A warning from "git pack-objects" were generated by referring to an
 incorrect variable when forming the filename that we had trouble

 Will merge to 'next'.

* sr/add--interactive-term-readkey (2014-03-03) 2 commits

 - git-config: document interactive.singlekey requires Term::ReadKey

 Will merge to 'next'.

* ta/parse-commit-with-skip-prefix (2014-03-04) 1 commit
 - commit.c: use skip_prefix() instead of starts_with()

 Will merge to 'next'.


* kb/fast-hashmap-pack-struct (2014-02-24) 1 commit
 - hashmap.h: make sure map entries are tightly packed

 I am inclined to drop this; an alternative is to replace it with
 the "more portable" one that uses #pragma, which I am willing to
 try doing so on 'pu', though.

* po/everyday-doc (2014-01-27) 1 commit
 - Make 'git help everyday' work

 This may make the said command to emit something, but the source is
 not meant to be formatted into a manual pages to begin with, and
 also its contents are a bit stale.  It may be a good first step in
 the right direction, but needs more work to at least get the
 mark-up right before public consumption.

 Will hold.

* jk/branch-at-publish-rebased (2014-01-17) 5 commits
 - t1507 (rev-parse-upstream): fix typo in test title
 - implement @{publish} shorthand
 - branch_get: provide per-branch pushremote pointers
 - branch_get: return early on error
 - sha1_name: refactor upstream_mark

 Give an easier access to the tracking branches from "other" side in
 a triangular workflow by introducing B@{publish} that works in a
 similar way to how B@{upstream} does.

 Meant to be used as a basis for whatever Ram wants to build on.

 Will hold.

* rb/merge-prepare-commit-msg-hook (2014-01-10) 4 commits
 - merge: drop unused arg from abort_commit method signature
 - merge: make prepare_to_commit responsible for write_merge_state
 - t7505: ensure cleanup after hook blocks merge
 - t7505: add missing &&

 Expose more merge states (e.g. $GIT_DIR/MERGE_MODE) to hooks that
 run during "git merge".  The log message stresses too much on one
 hook, prepare-commit-msg, but it would equally apply to other hooks
 like post-merge, I think.

 Waiting for a reroll.

* jl/submodule-recursive-checkout (2013-12-26) 5 commits
 - Teach checkout to recursively checkout submodules
 - submodule: teach unpack_trees() to update submodules
 - submodule: teach unpack_trees() to repopulate submodules
 - submodule: teach unpack_trees() to remove submodule contents
 - submodule: prepare for recursive checkout of submodules

 Expecting a reroll.

* jc/graph-post-root-gap (2013-12-30) 3 commits
 - WIP: document what we want at the end
 - graph: remove unused code a bit
 - graph: stuff the current commit into graph->columns[]

 This was primarily a RFH ($gmane/239580).

* fc/completion (2013-12-09) 1 commit
 - completion: fix completion of certain aliases

 SZEDER Gábor noticed that this breaks "git -c var=val alias" and
 also suggested a better description of the change.

 Has been stalled for a while without much comments from anybody

 Will discard.

* mo/subtree-split-updates (2013-12-10) 3 commits
 - subtree: add --edit option
 - subtree: allow --squash and --message with push
 - subtree: support split --rejoin --squash

 Has been stalled for a while without much comments from anybody

 Will discard.

* hv/submodule-ignore-fix (2013-12-06) 4 commits
 - disable complete ignorance of submodules for index <-> HEAD diff
 - always show committed submodules in summary after commit
 - teach add -f option for ignored submodules
 - fix 'git add' to skip submodules configured as ignored

 Teach "git add" to be consistent with "git status" when changes to
 submodules are set to be ignored, to avoid surprises after checking
 with "git status" to see there isn't any change to be further added
 and then see that "git add ." adds changes to them.

 I think a reroll is coming, so this may need to be replaced, but I
 needed some practice with heavy conflict resolution.  It conflicts
 with two changes to "git add" that have been scheduled for Git 2.0
 quite badly, and I think I got the resolution right this time.

 Waiting for a reroll.

* 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

 Will discard.

* 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.

 cc/interpret-trailers could be such a generic solution (although
 there don't seem to be much concensus yet).

 Will discard.

 . packv4-parse.c: add tree offset caching
 . t1050: replace one instance of show-index with verify-pack

 - ...

 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.

* 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.

 Will discard.

* 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.

 Will hold.

* 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.

 Will discard.

 - ### 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.

 Will discard, tired of waiting for clarification.

* 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

* bc/blame-crlf-test (2014-02-18) 1 commit
 - blame: add a failing test for a CRLF issue.

 I have a feeling that a fix for this should be fairly isolated and
 trivial (it should be just the matter of paying attention to the
 crlf settings when synthesizing the fake commit)---perhaps somebody
 can squash in a fix to this?

 "git reset" needs to refresh the index when working in a working

* ks/tree-diff-nway (2014-03-04) 19 commits
 - combine-diff: speed it up, by using multiparent diff tree-walker directly
 - tree-diff: rework diff_tree() to generate diffs for multiparent cases as well
 - Portable alloca for Git
 - tree-diff: reuse base str(buf) memory on sub-tree recursion
 - tree-diff: no need to call "full" diff_tree_sha1 from show_path()
 - tree-diff: rework diff_tree interface to be sha1 based
 - tree-diff: diff_tree() should now be static
 - tree-diff: remove special-case diff-emitting code for empty-tree cases
 - tree-diff: simplify tree_entry_pathcmp
 - tree-diff: show_path prototype is not needed anymore
 - tree-diff: rename compare_tree_entry -> tree_entry_pathcmp
 - tree-diff: move all action-taking code out of compare_tree_entry()
 - tree-diff: don't assume compare_tree_entry() returns -1,0,1
 - tree-diff: consolidate code for emitting diffs and recursion in one place
 - tree-diff: show_tree() is not needed
 - tree-diff: no need to pass match to skip_uninteresting()
 - tree-diff: no need to manually verify that there is no mode change for a path
 - combine-diff: move changed-paths scanning logic into its own function
 - combine-diff: move show_log_first logic/action out of paths scanning
 (this branch uses ks/combine-diff.)

 Instead of running N pair-wise diff-trees when inspecting a
 N-parent merge, find the set of paths that were touched by walking
 N+1 trees in parallel.  These set of paths can then be turned into
 N pair-wise diff-tree results to be processed through rename
 detections and such.  And N=2 case nicely degenerates to the usual
 2-way diff-tree, which is very nice.

 Teach "make test" to run networking tests when possible by default.

* jc/check-attr-honor-working-tree (2014-02-06) 2 commits
 - check-attr: move to the top of working tree when in non-bare repository
 - t0003: do not chdir the whole test process

 "git check-attr" when (trying to) work on a repository with a
 working tree did not work well when the working tree was specified
 via --work-tree (and obviously with --git-dir).

 The command also works in a bare repository but it reads from the
 (possibly stale, irrelevant and/or nonexistent) index, which may
 need to be fixed to read from HEAD, but that is a completely
 separate issue.  As a related tangentto this separate issue, we may
 want to also fix "check-ignore", which refuses to work in a bare
 repository, to also operate in a bare one.

 Will merge to 'next'.

* jk/makefile (2014-02-05) 16 commits
 - move LESS/LV pager environment to Makefile

 - Makefile: add c-quote helper function
 - Makefile: introduce sq function for shell-quoting
 - Makefile: always create files via make-var
 - Makefile: store GIT-* sentinel files in MAKE/

 - Makefile: use tempfile/mv strategy for GIT-*
 - Makefile: introduce make-var helper function
 - Makefile: fix git-instaweb dependency on gitweb
 - Makefile: drop USE_GETTEXT_SCHEME from GIT-CFLAGS

 Simplify the Makefile rules and macros that exist primarily for
 quoting purposes, and make it easier to robustly express the
 dependency rules.

 Expecting a reroll.

* tr/remerge-diff (2014-02-26) 5 commits
 . log --remerge-diff: show what the conflict resolution changed
 . name-hash: allow dir hashing even when !ignore_case
 . merge-recursive: allow storing conflict hunks in index
 . revision: fold all merge diff variants into an enum merge_diff_mode
 . combine-diff: do not pass revs->dense_combined_merges redundantly
 (this branch uses tr/merge-recursive-index-only.)

 "log -p" output learns a new way to let users inspect a merge
 commit by showing the differences between the automerged result
 with conflicts the person who recorded the merge would have seen
 and the final conflict resolution that was recorded in the merge.

 diffcore-order, and optimize how matching paths are found in
 the N-way diffs made with parents.

* bl/blame-full-history (2014-01-14) 1 commit
 - blame: new option --prefer-first to better handle merged cherry-picks

 By disabling the tree-same optimization (which is consistent with
 the default behaviour of "git log"-family of commands), make "git
 blame" sometimes produce different result from the original code.

 Because the "git blame" output can give result for each line from
 only one lineage of the history, however, this can be only useful
 when you are lucky---unlike "--full-history" of "git log"-family,
 where we can show commits from both lineages of histories with an
 equal weight.  See $gmane/240392 for more detailed discussion.

 Will discard.
