make test Unexpected passes

Ramsay Jones-2
Hi Ben, Junio,

Tonight, the testsuite passed with a couple of 'unexpected passes', viz:

$ tail -17 ptest-out
[13:24:29]
All tests successful.

Test Summary Report
-------------------
t3421-rebase-topology-linear.sh                  (Wstat: 0 Tests: 76 Failed: 0)
  TODO passed:   50, 54
t6036-recursive-corner-cases.sh                  (Wstat: 0 Tests: 22 Failed: 0)
  TODO passed:   11
Files=746, Tests=13515, 445 wallclock secs ( 3.83 usr  0.61 sys + 52.78 cusr 27.89 csys = 85.11 CPU)
Result: PASS
make clean-except-prove-cache
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/ramsay/git/t'

rm -f -r valgrind/bin
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/ramsay/git/t'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/ramsay/git/t'
$

In the first case, t3421-*.sh, git bisect fingered commit f32ec670
("git-rebase--merge: don't include absent parent as a base", 20-04-2016).

In the second case, t6036-*.sh, git bisect fingered commit b61f9d6e
("ll-merge: use a longer conflict marker for internal merge", 14-04-2016).

I won't have any time tonight to look into this any further (are these
false positives?), so I thought I would just make sure you were aware
of these 'unexpected passes'.

ATB,
Ramsay Jones

Yeah, the t6036 testcase 'git detects conflict w/
criss-cross+contrived resolution' could be made to pass by tweaking
the conflict markers.  In fact, any tweak would make it appear to
pass, but the test could be updated to still fail by updating the
contrived resolution of a previous merge to use the newer conflict
marker style as well.

The test is kind of fragile in this way, and is really there just to
document this slightly weird and never seen in practice corner case.
I don't think we'll ever fix the underlying "problem"; not even sure
if it's possible without fundamentally re-thinking our merge strategy
altogether.  I just thought that when I was writing all those tests
that documenting this particular behavior as a testcase had some
value, but if the conflict markers are going to be updated
periodically, then the cost of the test may outweigh its value and we
should just toss this one test from that file.

Yep,

These know breakages:

ok 50 - rebase -m --onto --root
ok 54 - rebase -m without --onto --root with disjoint history

Have to do with rebasing a root/orphan branch with the -m flag,
which defaults to -- merge=recursive, which is the case the patch fixed.

Thanks, will squash them in and reword the log message accordingly.

    git-rebase--merge: don't include absent parent as a base

    Absent this fix, attempts to rebase an orphan branch using "rebase -m"
    fails with:

        $ git rebase -m ORPHAN_TARGET_BASE
        First, rewinding head to replay your work on top of it...
        ...
    Note the default rebase behavior does not fail:

        $ git rebase ORPHAN_TARGET_BASE
        First, rewinding head to replay your work on top of it...
        Applying: ORPHAN_ROOT_COMMIT_MSG
        Using index info to reconstruct a base tree...

    A few tests were expecting the old behaviour to forbid rebasing such
    a history with "rebase -m", which now need to expect them to succeed.

Isn't what the test expects bogus in the first place?  I'd suggest
removing the test as "pointless waste of resource".

Comments?

Subject: [PATCH] t6036: remove pointless test that expects failure

One test in t6036 prepares a file whose contents contain these
lines:

        <<<<<<< Temporary merge branch 1
        C
        =======
        B
        >>>>>>> Temporary merge branch 2

and uses recursive merge strategy to run criss-cross merge with it.

Manual merge resolution by users fundamentally depends on being able
to tell what is the tracked contents and what is the separator lines
added by "git merge" to tell users which block of lines came from
where.  You can deliberately craft a file with lines that resemble
conflict marker lines to make it impossible for the user (here, the
outer merge of merge-recursive also counts as a user of the internal
merge) to tell which part is which, and write a test to demonstrate
that with such a file that "git merge" fundamentally cannot work
with and has to fail on.  It however is pointless and waste of time
and resource to run such a test that asserts the obvious.

In real life, people who do need to track files with such lines that
have <<<< ==== >>>> as their prefixes set the conflict-marker-size
attribute to make sure they will be able to tell between the tracked
lines that happen to begin with these (confusing) prefixes and the
marker lines that are added by "git merge".

Remove the test as pointless waste of resource.

Yes, toss it; I find your arguments below compelling.
