What's cooking in git.git (Jan 2014, #03; Thu, 16)

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

I am planning to tag 1.9-rc0 preview release from the tip of
'master' soonish.  Hopefully a few fix-up topics still in flight and
also updates to git-gui, gitk, git-svn, i18n, etc. from respective
area maintainers can be merged by the time 1.9-rc1 will be tagged.

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

--------------------------------------------------
[Graduated to "master"]

* br/sha1-name-40-hex-no-disambiguation (2014-01-07) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-01-10 at 2a0973b)
 + sha1_name: don't resolve refs when core.warnambiguousrefs is false
 (this branch is used by jk/warn-on-object-refname-ambiguity.)

 When parsing a 40-hex string into the object name, the string is
 checked to see if it can be interpreted as a ref so that a warning
 can be given for ambiguity. The code kicked in even when the
 core.warnambiguousrefs is set to false to squelch this warning, in
 which case the cycles spent to look at the ref namespace were an
 expensive no-op, as the result was discarded without being used.


* jk/pull-rebase-using-fork-point (2014-01-09) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-01-10 at e86e59d)
 + rebase: fix fork-point with zero arguments


* jl/submodule-mv-checkout-caveat (2014-01-07) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-01-10 at 8d3953c)
 + rm: better document side effects when removing a submodule
 + mv: better document side effects when moving a submodule

 With a submodule that was initialized in an old fashioned way
 without gitlinks, switching branches in the superproject between
 the one with and without the submodule may leave the submodule
 working tree with its embedded repository behind, as there may be
 unexpendable state there. Document and warn users about this.


* jn/pager-lv-default-env (2014-01-07) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-01-10 at 22d4755)
 + pager: set LV=-c alongside LESS=FRSX

 Just like we give a reasonable default for "less" via the LESS
 environment variable, specify a reasonable default for "lv" via the
 "LV" environment variable when spawning the pager.


* mh/shorten-unambigous-ref (2014-01-09) 3 commits
 + shorten_unambiguous_ref(): tighten up pointer arithmetic
 + gen_scanf_fmt(): delete function and use snprintf() instead
 + shorten_unambiguous_ref(): introduce a new local variable


* mm/mv-file-to-no-such-dir-with-slash (2014-01-10) 1 commit
 + mv: let 'git mv file no-such-dir/' error out on Windows, too

 Finishing touches to a topic that has already been merged to 'master'.


* ow/stash-with-ifs (2014-01-07) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-01-10 at 4fc9bdb)
 + stash: handle specifying stashes with $IFS

 The implementation of 'git stash $cmd "stash@{...}"' did not quote
 the stash argument properly and left it split at IFS whitespace.


* rr/completion-format-coverletter (2014-01-07) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-01-10 at d2dbc9d)
 + completion: complete format.coverLetter

 The bash/zsh completion code did not know about format.coverLetter
 among many format.* configuration variables.

--------------------------------------------------
[New Topics]

* ab/subtree-doc (2014-01-13) 1 commit
 - subtree: fix argument validation in add/pull/push

 Will merge to 'next'.


* jk/complete-merge-base (2014-01-13) 2 commits
 - completion: handle --[no-]fork-point options to git-rebase
 - completion: complete merge-base options

 Will merge to 'next'.


* po/everyday-doc (2014-01-13) 1 commit
 - Make 'git help everyday' work


* 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 stressed too much on one hook,
 prepare-commit-msg, but it would equally apply to other hooks like
 post-merge, I think.

 Waiting to give a chance to reroll.


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


* da/pull-ff-configuration (2014-01-15) 2 commits
 - pull: add --ff-only to the help text
 - pull: add pull.ff configuration

 Will merge to 'next'.


* jc/maint-pull-docfix (2014-01-14) 2 commits
 - Documentation: "git pull" does not have the "-m" option
 - Merge branch 'jc/maint-pull-docfix-for-409b8d82' into jc/maint-pull-docfix
 (this branch uses jc/maint-pull-docfix-for-409b8d82.)

 Will merge to 'next'.


* jc/maint-pull-docfix-for-409b8d82 (2014-01-14) 1 commit
 - Documentation: exclude irrelevant options from "git pull"
 (this branch is used by jc/maint-pull-docfix.)

 Will merge to 'next'.


* jc/revision-range-unpeel (2014-01-15) 2 commits
 - revision: propagate flag bits from tags to pointees
 - revision: mark contents of an uninteresting tree uninteresting

 "git log --left-right A...B" lost the "leftness" of commits
 reachable from A when A is a tag as a side effect of a recent
 bugfix.  This is a regression in 1.8.4.x series.

 Will merge to 'next'.


* jk/allow-fetch-onelevel-refname (2014-01-15) 1 commit
 - fetch-pack: do not filter out one-level refs

 "git clone" would fail to clone from a repository that has a ref
 directly under "refs/", e.g. "refs/stash", because different
 validation paths do different things on such a refname.  Loosen the
 client side's validation to allow such a ref.

 Will merge to 'next'.


* jk/interpret-branch-name-fix (2014-01-15) 5 commits
 - interpret_branch_name: find all possible @-marks
 - interpret_branch_name: avoid @{upstream} past colon
 - interpret_branch_name: always respect "namelen" parameter
 - interpret_branch_name: rename "cp" variable to "at"
 - interpret_branch_name: factor out upstream handling

 Fix a handful of bugs around interpreting $branch@{upstream}
 notation and its lookalike, when $branch part has interesting
 characters, e.g. "@", and ":".

 Will merge to 'next'.


* mh/attr-macro-doc (2014-01-14) 1 commit
 - gitattributes: document more clearly where macros are allowed

 Will merge to 'next'.


* mh/retire-ref-fetch-rules (2014-01-14) 1 commit
 - refname_match(): always use the rules in ref_rev_parse_rules

 Code simplification.

 Will merge to 'next'.

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

* 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/transport-helper-fixes (2013-12-09) 6 commits
 - remote-bzr: support the new 'force' option
 - 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.

 Reported to break t5541.
 Will hold.


* 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.

 Will hold.


* 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

 Comments?


* 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.


* kb/fast-hashmap (2014-01-03) 19 commits
 - hashmap.h: make sure map entries are tightly packed
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-01-03 at dc85001)
 + name-hash: retire unused index_name_exists()
 + hashmap.h: Use 'unsigned int' for hash-codes everywhere
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-12-16 at bff99b1)
 + Drop unnecessary #includes from test-hashmap
 + Add test-hashmap to .gitignore
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-12-06 at f90be3d)
 + 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 tip one does not seem to have reached concensus (yet).


* 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.


* 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.


* 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]

* wk/submodule-on-branch (2014-01-16) 6 commits
 - Documentation: Describe 'submodule update' modes in detail
 - t7406: Add explicit tests for head attachement after cloning updates
 - [DONOTMERGE] t7406: Just-cloned checkouts update to the gitlinked hash with 'reset'
 - submodule: Explicit local branch creation in module_clone
 - submodule: Document module_clone arguments in comments
 - submodule: Make 'checkout' update_module explicit
 (this branch uses fp/submodule-checkout-mode.)

 Makes 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.

 This round seems to be almost ready; further discussions are of
 course very much welcomed.

 Will wait for another reroll to fix minor nits, at least.


* jk/branch-at-publish (2014-01-13) 6 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
 - interpret_branch_name: factor out upstream handling
 - 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.

 Will rebase to share the same change with the
 jk/interpret-branch-name-fix topic.


* jk/warn-on-object-refname-ambiguity (2014-01-09) 6 commits
 - get_sha1: drop object/refname ambiguity flag
 - get_sha1: speed up ambiguous 40-hex test
 - FIXUP: teach DO_FOR_EACH_NO_RECURSE to prime_ref_dir()
 - refs: teach for_each_ref a flag to avoid recursion
 - cat-file: fix a minor memory leak in batch_objects
 - cat-file: refactor error handling of batch_objects

 Expecting a reroll.


* ap/remote-hg-skip-null-bookmarks (2014-01-02) 1 commit
 - remote-hg: do not fail on invalid bookmarks

 Reported to break tests ($gmane/240005)
 Expecting a reroll.


* ss/safe-create-leading-dir-with-slash (2014-01-06) 1 commit
 - safe_create_leading_directories(): on Windows, \ can separate path components

 Expecting to be rolled into mh/safe-create-leading-directories


* fp/submodule-checkout-mode (2014-01-07) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-01-10 at 647ba9b)
 + git-submodule.sh: 'checkout' is a valid update mode
 (this branch is used by wk/submodule-on-branch.)

 "submodule.*.update=checkout", when propagated from .gitmodules to
 .git/config, turned into a "submodule.*.update=none", which did not
 make much sense.

 Will merge to 'master'.


* 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.


* mh/safe-create-leading-directories (2014-01-06) 17 commits
 - rename_tmp_log(): on SCLD_VANISHED, retry
 - rename_tmp_log(): limit the number of remote_empty_directories() attempts
 - rename_tmp_log(): handle a possible mkdir/rmdir race
 - rename_ref(): extract function rename_tmp_log()
 - remove_dir_recurse(): handle disappearing files and directories
 - remove_dir_recurse(): tighten condition for removing unreadable dir
 - lock_ref_sha1_basic(): if locking fails with ENOENT, retry
 - lock_ref_sha1_basic(): on SCLD_VANISHED, retry
 - safe_create_leading_directories(): add new error value SCLD_VANISHED
 - cmd_init_db(): when creating directories, handle errors conservatively
 - safe_create_leading_directories(): introduce enum for return values
 - safe_create_leading_directories(): always restore slash at end of loop
 - safe_create_leading_directories(): split on first of multiple slashes
 - safe_create_leading_directories(): rename local variable
 - safe_create_leading_directories(): add explicit "slash" pointer
 - safe_create_leading_directories(): reduce scope of local variable
 - safe_create_leading_directories(): fix format of "if" chaining

 Code clean-up and protection against concurrent write access to the
 ref namespace.

 Asked Michael and Sebastian to work together to roll the latter's
 "allow passing p\a\t\h to safe_create_leading_dir()" into this.

 Expecting a reroll.


* jk/pack-bitmap (2013-12-30) 21 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-01-10 at bdbe0a4)
 + pack-bitmap: implement optional name_hash cache
 + t/perf: add tests for pack bitmaps
 + t: add basic bitmap functionality tests
 + count-objects: recognize .bitmap in garbage-checking
 + 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-objects: split add_object_entry
 + 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

 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.

 Will cook in 'next'.


* nv/commit-gpgsign-config (2013-12-17) 3 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-01-03 at 9780cbb)
 + test the commit.gpgsign config option
 + commit-tree: add and document --no-gpg-sign
 + Add the commit.gpgsign option to sign all commits

 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.

 Will cook in 'next'.


* nd/shallow-clone (2014-01-09) 31 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-01-09 at 6608634)
 + t5537: fix incorrect expectation in test case 10
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-01-06 at 3dc7fab)
 + shallow: remove unused code
 + send-pack.c: mark a file-local function static
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-01-03 at a776065)
 + git-clone.txt: remove shallow clone limitations
 + prune: clean .git/shallow after pruning objects
 + clone: use git protocol for cloning shallow repo locally
 + send-pack: support pushing from a shallow clone via http
 + receive-pack: support pushing to a shallow clone via http
 + smart-http: support shallow fetch/clone
 + remote-curl: pass ref SHA-1 to fetch-pack as well
 + send-pack: support pushing to a shallow clone
 + receive-pack: allow pushes that update .git/shallow
 + connected.c: add new variant that runs with --shallow-file
 + add GIT_SHALLOW_FILE to propagate --shallow-file to subprocesses
 + receive/send-pack: support pushing from a shallow clone
 + receive-pack: reorder some code in unpack()
 + fetch: add --update-shallow to accept refs that update .git/shallow
 + upload-pack: make sure deepening preserves shallow roots
 + fetch: support fetching from a shallow repository
 + clone: support remote shallow repository
 + fetch-pack.h: one statement per bitfield declaration
 + fetch-pack.c: move shallow update code out of fetch_pack()
 + shallow.c: steps 6 and 7 to select new commits for .git/shallow
 + shallow.c: the 8 steps to select new commits for .git/shallow
 + shallow.c: extend setup_*_shallow() to accept extra shallow commits
 + connect.c: teach get_remote_heads to parse "shallow" lines
 + make the sender advertise shallow commits to the receiver
 + clone: prevent --reference to a shallow repository
 + send-pack: forbid pushing from a shallow repository
 + remote.h: replace struct extra_have_objects with struct sha1_array
 + transport.h: remove send_pack prototype, already defined in send-pack.h

 Fetching from a shallow-cloned repository used to be forbidden,
 primarily because the codepaths involved were not carefully vetted
 and we did not bother supporting such usage. This attempts to allow
 object transfer out of a shallow-cloned repository in a controlled
 way (i.e. the receiver become a shallow repository with truncated
 history).

 Will merge to 'master'.


* jn/git-gui-chmod+x (2013-11-25) 1 commit
 - git-gui: chmod +x po2msg, windows/git-gui.sh

 Parked here until I get the same change back from the upstream
 git-gui tree.


* jn/gitk-chmod+x (2013-11-25) 1 commit
 - gitk: chmod +x po2msg

 Parked here until I get the same change back from the upstream gitk
 tree.


* cc/starts-n-ends-with-endgame (2013-12-05) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2014-01-07 at 4cdf8d0)
 + strbuf: remove prefixcmp() and suffixcmp()

 Endgame for the cc/starts-n-ends-with topic; this needs to be
 evil-merged with other topics that introduce new uses of
 prefix/suffix-cmp functions.

 Will cook in 'next' until Git 2.0.


* gj/push-more-verbose-advice (2013-11-13) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-12-06 at 574b18a)
 + push: switch default from "matching" to "simple"

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2013-11-21

 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' until Git 2.0.


* 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.


* jn/add-2.0-u-A-sans-pathspec (2013-04-26) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2013-12-06 at ead2ec8)
 + 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

[ANNOUNCE] Git v1.9-rc0

Junio C Hamano
An early preview release Git v1.9-rc0 is now available for testing
at the usual places.  I tagged this late last week, but forgot to
send out the announcement before I left for the weekend, and then I
wasn't well yesterday, but anyway.  There still may be a few minor
topics not in this preview but should be in the final release, but
otherwise, this should be pretty close to "it".

It has been reported that turning git.rc into git.res does not like
the new 2-dewey-decimal release numbering scheme; packagers of
various distro might find similar issues in their build procedures,
in which case they have about 3 weeks to update them until the final
release.

The release tarballs are found at:

    http://code.google.com/p/git-core/downloads/list

and their SHA-1 checksums are:

495108620f8547ec8e979549857dae96bfabb0f7  git-1.9.rc0.tar.gz

Git v1.9 Release Notes (draft)
======================

Backward compatibility notes
----------------------------

"git submodule foreach $cmd $args" used to treat "$cmd $args" the same
way "ssh" did, concatenating them into a single string and letting the
shell unquote. Careless users who forget to sufficiently quote $args
gets their argument split at $IFS whitespaces by the shell, and got
unexpected results due to this. Starting from this release, the
command line is passed directly to the shell, if it has an argument.

Read-only support for experimental loose-object format, in which users
could optionally choose to write in their loose objects for a short
while between v1.4.3 to v1.5.3 era, has been dropped.

The meanings of "--tags" option to "git fetch" has changed; the
command fetches tags _in addition to_ what are fetched by the same
command line without the option.

The way "git push $there $what" interprets $what part given on the
command line, when it does not have a colon that explicitly tells us
what ref at the $there repository is to be updated, has been enhanced.

A handful of ancient commands that have long been deprecated are
finally gone (repo-config, tar-tree, lost-found, and peek-remote).


Backward compatibility notes (for Git 2.0)
------------------------------------------

When "git push [$there]" does not say what to push, we have used the
traditional "matching" semantics so far (all your branches were sent
to the remote as long as there already are branches of the same name
over there).  In Git 2.0, the default will change to the "simple"
semantics, which pushes:

 - only the current branch to the branch with the same name, and only
   when the current branch is set to integrate with that remote
   branch, if you are pushing to the same remote as you fetch from; or

 - only the current branch to the branch with the same name, if you
   are pushing to a remote that is not where you usually fetch from.

Use the user preference configuration variable "push.default" to
change this.  If you are an old-timer who is used to the "matching"
semantics, you can set the variable to "matching" to keep the
traditional behaviour.  If you want to live in the future early, you
can set it to "simple" today without waiting for Git 2.0.

When "git add -u" (and "git add -A") is run inside a subdirectory and
does not specify which paths to add on the command line, it
will operate on the entire tree in Git 2.0 for consistency
with "git commit -a" and other commands.  There will be no
mechanism to make plain "git add -u" behave like "git add -u .".
Current users of "git add -u" (without a pathspec) should start
training their fingers to explicitly say "git add -u ."
before Git 2.0 comes.  A warning is issued when these commands are
run without a pathspec and when you have local changes outside the
current directory, because the behaviour in Git 2.0 will be different
from today's version in such a situation.

In Git 2.0, "git add <path>" will behave as "git add -A <path>", so
that "git add dir/" will notice paths you removed from the directory
and record the removal.  Versions before Git 2.0, including this
release, will keep ignoring removals, but the users who rely on this
behaviour are encouraged to start using "git add --ignore-removal <path>"
now before 2.0 is released.

The default prefix for "git svn" will change in Git 2.0.  For a long
time, "git svn" created its remote-tracking branches directly under
refs/remotes, but it will place them under refs/remotes/origin/ unless
it is told otherwise with its --prefix option.


Updates since v1.8.5
--------------------

Foreign interfaces, subsystems and ports.

 * The HTTP transport, when talking GSS-Negotiate, uses "100
   Continue" response to avoid having to rewind and resend a large
   payload, which may not be always doable.

 * Various bugfixes to remote-bzr and remote-hg (in contrib/).

 * The build procedure is aware of MirBSD now.


UI, Workflows & Features

 * Fetching from a shallowly-cloned repository used to be forbidden,
   primarily because the codepaths involved were not carefully vetted
   and we did not bother supporting such usage. This release attempts
   to allow object transfer out of a shallowly-cloned repository in a
   more controlled way (i.e. the receiver become a shallow repository
   with a truncated history).

 * Just like we give a reasonable default for "less" via the LESS
   environment variable, we now specify a reasonable default for "lv"
   via the "LV" environment variable when spawning the pager.

 * Two-level configuration variable names in "branch.*" and "remote.*"
   hierarchies, whose variables are predominantly three-level, were
   not completed by hitting a <TAB> in bash and zsh completions.

 * Fetching 'frotz' branch with "git fetch", while 'frotz/nitfol'
   remote-tracking branch from an earlier fetch was still there, would
   error out, primarily because the command was not told that it is
   allowed to lose any information on our side.  "git fetch --prune"
   now can be used to remove 'frotz/nitfol' to make room to fetch and
   store 'frotz' remote-tracking branch.

 * "diff.orderfile=<file>" configuration variable can be used to
   pretend as if the "-O<file>" option were given from the command
   line of "git diff", etc.

 * The negative pathspec syntax allows "git log -- . ':!dir'" to tell
   us "I am interested in everything but 'dir' directory".

 * "git difftool" shows how many different paths there are in total,
   and how many of them have been shown so far, to indicate progress.

 * "git push origin master" used to push our 'master' branch to update
   the 'master' branch at the 'origin' repository.  This has been
   enhanced to use the same ref mapping "git push origin" would use to
   determine what ref at the 'origin' to be updated with our 'master'.
   For example, with this configuration

   [remote "origin"]
      push = refs/heads/*:refs/review/*

   that would cause "git push origin" to push out our local branches
   to corresponding refs under refs/review/ hierarchy at 'origin',
   "git push origin master" would update 'refs/review/master' over
   there.  Alternatively, if push.default is set to 'upstream' and our
   'master' is set to integrate with 'topic' from the 'origin' branch,
   running "git push origin" while on our 'master' would update their
   'topic' branch, and running "git push origin master" while on any
   of our branches does the same.

 * "gitweb" learned to treat ref hierarchies other than refs/heads as
   if they are additional branch namespaces (e.g. refs/changes/ in
   Gerrit).

 * "git for-each-ref --format=..." learned a few formatting directives;
   e.g. "%(color:red)%(HEAD)%(color:reset) %(refname:short) %(subject)".

 * The command string given to "git submodule foreach" is passed
   directly to the shell, without being eval'ed.  This is a backward
   incompatible change that may break existing users.

 * "git log" and friends learned the "--exclude=<glob>" option, to
   allow people to say "list history of all branches except those that
   match this pattern" with "git log --exclude='*/*' --branches".

 * "git rev-parse --parseopt" learned a new "--stuck-long" option to
   help scripts parse options with an optional parameter.

 * The "--tags" option to "git fetch" no longer tells the command to
   fetch _only_ the tags. It instead fetches tags _in addition to_
   what are fetched by the same command line without the option.


Performance, Internal Implementation, etc.

 * When parsing a 40-hex string into the object name, the string is
   checked to see if it can be interpreted as a ref so that a warning
   can be given for ambiguity. The code kicked in even when the
   core.warnambiguousrefs is set to false to squelch this warning, in
   which case the cycles spent to look at the ref namespace were an
   expensive no-op, as the result was discarded without being used.

 * The naming convention of the packfiles has been updated; it used to
   be based on the enumeration of names of the objects that are
   contained in the pack, but now it also depends on how the packed
   result is represented---packing the same set of objects using
   different settings (or delta order) would produce a pack with
   different name.

 * "git diff --no-index" mode used to unnecessarily attempt to read
   the index when there is one.

 * The deprecated parse-options macro OPT_BOOLEAN has been removed;
   use OPT_BOOL or OPT_COUNTUP in new code.

 * A few duplicate implementations of prefix/suffix string comparison
   functions have been unified to starts_with() and ends_with().

 * The new PERLLIB_EXTRA makefile variable can be used to specify
   additional directories Perl modules (e.g. the ones necessary to run
   git-svn) are installed on the platform when building.

 * "git merge-base" learned the "--fork-point" mode, that implements
   the same logic used in "git pull --rebase" to find a suitable fork
   point out of the reflog entries for the remote-tracking branch the
   work has been based on.  "git rebase" has the same logic that can be
   triggered with the "--fork-point" option.

 * A third-party "receive-pack" (the responder to "git push") can
   advertise the "no-thin" capability to tell "git push" not to use
   the thin-pack optimization. Our receive-pack has always been
   capable of accepting and fattening a thin-pack, and will continue
   not to ask "git push" to use a non-thin pack.


Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.


Fixes since v1.8.5
------------------

Unless otherwise noted, all the fixes since v1.8.5 in the maintenance
track are contained in this release (see the maintenance releases' notes
for details).

 * "submodule.*.update=checkout", when propagated from .gitmodules to
   .git/config, turned into a "submodule.*.update=none", which did not
   make much sense.
   (merge efa8fd7 fp/submodule-checkout-mode later to maint).

 * The implementation of 'git stash $cmd "stash@{...}"' did not quote
   the stash argument properly and left it split at IFS whitespace.
   (merge 2a07e43 ow/stash-with-ifs later to maint).

 * The "--[no-]informative-errors" options to "git daemon" were parsed
   a bit too loosely, allowing any other string after these option
   names.
   (merge 82246b7 nd/daemon-informative-errors-typofix later to maint).

 * There is no reason to have a hardcoded upper limit of the number of
   parents for an octopus merge, created via the graft mechanism, but
   there was.
   (merge e228c17 js/lift-parent-count-limit later to maint).

 * The basic test used to leave unnecessary trash directories in the
   t/ directory.
   (merge 738a8be jk/test-framework-updates later to maint).

 * "git merge-base --octopus" used to leave cleaning up suboptimal
   result to the caller, but now it does the clean-up itself.
   (merge 8f29299 bm/merge-base-octopus-dedup later to maint).

 * A "gc" process running as a different user should be able to stop a
   new "gc" process from starting, but it didn't.
   (merge ed7eda8 km/gc-eperm later to maint).

 * An earlier "clean-up" introduced an unnecessary memory leak.
   (merge e1c1a32 jk/credential-plug-leak later to maint).

 * "git add -A" (no other arguments) in a totally empty working tree
   used to emit an error.
   (merge 64ed07c nd/add-empty-fix later to maint).

 * "git log --decorate" did not handle a tag pointed by another tag
   nicely.
   (merge 5e1361c bc/log-decoration later to maint).

 * When we figure out how many file descriptors to allocate for
   keeping packfiles open, a system with non-working getrlimit() could
   cause us to die(), but because we make this call only to get a
   rough estimate of how many is available and we do not even attempt
   to use up all file descriptors available ourselves, it is nicer to
   fall back to a reasonable low value rather than dying.
   (merge 491a8de jh/rlimit-nofile-fallback later to maint).

 * read_sha1_file(), that is the workhorse to read the contents given
   an object name, honoured object replacements, but there was no
   corresponding mechanism to sha1_object_info() that was used to
   obtain the metainfo (e.g. type & size) about the object.  This led
   callers to weird inconsistencies.
   (merge 663a856 cc/replace-object-info later to maint).

 * "git cat-file --batch=", an admittedly useless command, did not
   behave very well.
   (merge 6554dfa jk/cat-file-regression-fix later to maint).

 * "git rev-parse <revs> -- <paths>" did not implement the usual
   disambiguation rules the commands in the "git log" family used in
   the same way.
   (merge 62f162f jk/rev-parse-double-dashes later to maint).

 * "git mv A B/", when B does not exist as a directory, should error
   out, but it didn't.
   (merge c57f628 mm/mv-file-to-no-such-dir-with-slash later to maint).

 * A workaround to an old bug in glibc prior to glibc 2.17 has been
   retired; this would remove a side effect of the workaround that
   corrupts system error messages in non-C locales.

 * SSL-related options were not passed correctly to underlying socket
   layer in "git send-email".
   (merge 5508f3e tr/send-email-ssl later to maint).

 * "git commit -v" appends the patch to the log message before
   editing, and then removes the patch when the editor returned
   control. However, the patch was not stripped correctly when the
   first modified path was a submodule.
   (merge 1a72cfd jl/commit-v-strip-marker later to maint).

 * "git fetch --depth=0" was a no-op, and was silently ignored.
   Diagnose it as an error.
   (merge 5594bca nd/transport-positive-depth-only later to maint).

 * Remote repository URL expressed in scp-style host:path notation are
   parsed more carefully (e.g. "foo/bar:baz" is local, "[::1]:/~user" asks
   to connect to user's home directory on host at address ::1.
   (merge a2036d7 tb/clone-ssh-with-colon-for-port later to maint).

 * "git diff -- ':(icase)makefile'" was unnecessarily rejected at the
   command line parser.
   (merge 887c6c1 nd/magic-pathspec later to maint).

 * "git cat-file --batch-check=ok" did not check the existence of
   the named object.
   (merge 4ef8d1d sb/sha1-loose-object-info-check-existence later to maint).

 * "git am --abort" sometimes complained about not being able to write
   a tree with an 0{40} object in it.
   (merge 77b43ca jk/two-way-merge-corner-case-fix later to maint).

 * Two processes creating loose objects at the same time could have
   failed unnecessarily when the name of their new objects started
   with the same byte value, due to a race condition.
   (merge b2476a6 jh/loose-object-dirs-creation-race later to maint).

or any

Do these consume CPU every time somebody asks for a tarball?  That
might be considered "wrong" depending on the view.

No, our infrastructure caches frequently requested tarballs so they
don't have to be regenerated on the fly. If you would prefer to
distribute a different version of the tarball for the release (e.g.
one with a different filename or folder structure), you can upload it
directly to the release page of the tag:

    https://github.com/gitster/git/releases/tag/v1.9-rc0

We'll automatically mirror your release to S3 and serve it from there.
You can also go ahead and edit the release page with the changelog
you've posted in this email thread to make it more user friendly.

WE WILL SERVE YOUR RELEASES, JUNIO

BECAUSE WE LOVE YOU

Thanks.  That is certainly good enough for consumers, and better
than having to manually create and upload for me ;-)

 Two questions: Does regenerating (e.g. if the tarball has dropped
out of the cache) change its sums (md5sum or similar) ?  In (beyond)
linuxfromscratch we use md5sums to verify that a tarball has not
changed.  Also, will there be links for manpages and htmldocs
tarballs ?

 I note that all of these *are* still available at googlecode for
the moment : https://code.google.com/p/git-core/downloads/list

As I said, Cgc is not the ony download site.  The end of

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

lists the two sites that currently have the material.  I may replace
Cgc with something else (and add it/them to the list), but in the

soon, so...

The tarballs we auto-generate from tags are cached, but they can
change if the cached version expires _and_ the archive-generation code
changes.

We use "git archive" to generate the tarballs themselves, and then gzip
the with "gzip -n". So it should be consistent from run to run. However,
very occasionally there are bugfixes in "git archive" which can affect
the output. E.g., commit 22f0dcd (archive-tar: split long paths more
carefully, 2013-01-05) changes the representation of certain long paths,
and generating a tarball with and without it will result in different
checksums (for some repos).

So if you are planning on baking md5sums into a package-build system, it
is much better to point at "official" releases which are rolled once by
the project maintainer, rather than the automatic tag page.

Junio, since you prepare such tarballs[1] anyway for kernel.org, it
might be worth uploading them to the "Releases" page of git/git.  I
imagine there is a programmatic way to do so via GitHub's API, but I
don't know offhand. I can look into it if you are interested.

I already have a script that takes the three tarballs and uploads
them to two places, so adding GitHub as the third destination should
be a natural and welcome way to automate it.

I came up with the script below, which you can use like:

  ./script v1.8.2.3 git-1.8.2.3.tar.gz

It expects the tag to already be pushed up to GitHub.  I'll leave
sticking it on the "todo" branch and integrating it into RelUpload to
you. This can also be used to backfill the old releases (though I looked
on k.org and it seems to have only partial coverage).

It sets the "prerelease" flag for -rc releases, but I did not otherwise
fill in any fields, including the summary and description. GitHub seems
to display reasonably if they are not set.

The change in release numbering also breaks down gitolite v2 setups. One
of the gitolite commands, gl-compile-conf, expects the output of git --version
to match /git version (\d+)\.(\d+)\.(\d+)/.

I have no idea how big problem it is, as I don't know how many people
hasn't migrate to gitolite v3 yet.

http://qa.debian.org/popcon.php?package=gitolite says there are some.
I guess soon we'll see if there are complaints.

http://gitolite.com/gitolite/migr.html says gitolite v2 is still
maintained.  Hopefully the patch to gitolite v2 to fix this would not
be too invasive --- e.g., how about this patch (untested)?

Thanks,
Jonathan

It's a poor man's Keychain:

  https://github.com/peff/pass

Judging from your use of netrc in Meta/RelUpload, you probably just
want:

  token() {
    cat ~/.github-token
  }

It works for 1.9.rc1 but I think it will fail with final 1.9. The
following version should be ok:

diff --git a/src/gl-compile-conf b/src/gl-compile-conf
index f497ae5..c391468 100755

Gitolite v3 will be 2 years old in a month or so.  I would prefer to use
this as an opportunity to encourage people to upgrade; v2 really has
nothing going for it now.

People who cannot upgrade gitolite should simply cut that whole block
of code and throw it out.  Distro's should probably do that if they are
still keeping gitolite v2 alive, because it is clearly not needed if the
same distro is up to 1.9 of git!

My policy has been to continue support for critical bugs.  A bug that
can be fixed by simply deleting the offending code block, with no harm
done, is -- to my mind -- not critical enough :-)

side note, Kacper: I'd use non-capturing parens than an undef in the
destination list.
