If that is the one Brian means (and that is the only one I see in pu),
leaving it off was intentional. You do not need to have the GPG
prerequisite to verify the handling of %G and %GX, as the point is that
they are not actually gpg format placeholders.

That being said, I did botch the commit, because not having GPG means
we would not create any commits, and therefore "git log -1" fails for
the wrong reason.

The "right" fix is actually to make sure there is at least one commit in
that final test (e.g., by adding one base commit before the others).
Then it can run regardless of whether the GPG tests ran. And in that
sense, Brian's patch is working in the opposite direction.

Thinking on the explanation I gave above, though, I think it means the
test would probably be better placed in t6006 along with the other
format-specifier tests. That fixes the problem, and means that Brian's
simplification (to just skip all tests) becomes the right thing to do.

The patch below should fix it with minimal fuss. I think Brian's patch
makes sense on top, but I agree it would be nice to wait until the
existing topics settle.

Yeah, I agree that is a good thing to test.

I think it may make more sense to just configure gpg.program to "false"
for the NOGPG case. Then you get coverage both on systems with it
installed, and without (you could also just test it on GPG systems, and
drop the "ship commits in fast-import form" part of the plan).

Anyway, that is all outside the scope of the immediate problem. Here's
the patch to fix jk/pretty-G-format-fixes.

Subject: move "%G" format test from t7510 to t6006

The final test in t7510 checks that "--format" placeholders
that look similar to GPG placeholders (but that we don't
actually understand) are passed through. That test was
placed in t7510, since the other GPG placeholder tests are
there. However, it does not have a GPG prerequisite, because
it is not actually checking any signed commits.

This causes the test to erroneously fail when gpg is not
installed on a system, however. Not because we need signed
commits, but because we need _any_ commit to run "git log".
If we don't have gpg installed, t7510 doesn't create any
commits at all.

We can fix this by moving the test into t6006. This is
arguably a better place anyway, because it is where we test
most of the other placeholders (we do not test GPG
placeholders there because of the infrastructure needed to
make signed commits).
