I used "git stash -- path" for the first time today and happened to
notice an oddity. If I run:

	git init -q repo
	cd repo
	
	for i in one two; do
		echo content >$i
		git add $i
	done
	git commit -qm base
	
	for i in one two; do
		echo change >$i
	done
	git stash -- one

it says:

  Saved working directory and index state WIP on master: 20cfadf base
  Unstaged changes after reset:
  M	one
  M	two

Even though "one" no longer has unstaged changes.

If I run with GIT_TRACE=1, that message is generated by:

  git reset -- one

which makes sense. At that stage we've just reset the index, but the
working tree file still has modifications. In the non-pathspec case we
run "git reset --hard", which takes care of the index and the working
tree.

It's really "checkout-index" that cleans the working tree, but it
doesn't have porcelain finery like an "Unstaged changes" message. I
think the patch below would fix it, but I wonder if we can do it in a
way that doesn't involve calling diff-files twice.

Yeah, this is clearly not right.  Thanks for catching this before it
got into any release.

This would mean the user gets something like in your case above:

    Unstaged changes after reset:
     M	two

As a user that doesn't know the internal implementation of push_stash,
this would make me wonder why git stash would mention a file that is
not provided as pathspec, but not the one that was provided in the
pathspec argument.

I think one option would be to to just keep quiet about the exact
changes that git stash push makes, similar to what we do in the
--include-untracked and in the -p case.  The other option would be to
find the files that are affected and print them, but that would
probably be a bit too noisy especially in cases such as
git stash push -- docs/*.

Also from reading the code in the -p case, when --keep-index is given,
the git reset there doesn't respect $GIT_QUIET at all, and also
doesn't respect the pathspec argument, which seems like another bug.
I can submit a patch series for those, but I won't get to it before
tomorrow :)

This series implements my proposal for fixing bug in git stash --
<pathspec>, plus the two other things I noticed while looking at the
code.

1/3 implements just this.  This may deserve some more discussion on
what should actually be done.

2/3 and 3/3 have the fixes for the above.  No tests yet, as I'm not
100% sure 3/3 is doing the right thing, though I think it makes the
overall experience better.

  stash: show less information for stash push -- <pathspec>
  stash: make push -p -q --no-keep-index quiet

When using git stash push -- <pathspec> in the following sequence:

       git init -q repo
       cd repo

       for i in one two; do
               echo content >$i
               git add $i
       done
       git commit -qm base

       for i in one two; do
               echo change >$i
       done
       git stash -- one

it shows:

   Saved working directory and index state WIP on master: 20cfadf base
   Unstaged changes after reset:
    M   one
    M   two

Even though "one" no longer has unstaged changes.

It really is enough for the user to know that the stash is created,
without bothering them with the internal details of what's happening.
Always pass the -q flag to git clean and git reset in the pathspec case,
to avoid unnecessary and potentially confusing output.

Currently when using "git stash push -p -q --no-keep-index", the -q flag
is not passed to the git reset which is executed when --no-keep-index is
also passed in.  This means that git stash is somewhat verbose in this
mode even when the -q flag is passed in.  This was always the case since
"git stash save -p" was introduced in dda1f2a5 ("Implement 'git stash
save --patch'", 2009-08-13).

Properly pass the -q flag on to git reset, to make "git stash push -p
-q" as quiet as it should be.

For "git stash -p --no-keep-index", the pathspec argument is currently
not passed to "git reset".  This means that changed that are staged but
that are excluded from the pathspec still get unstaged by git stash -p.

Make sure that doesn't happen by passing the pathspec argument to the
git reset in question, bringing the behaviour in line with "git stash --
<pathspec>".

So this make things a bit inconsistent in for example the following
situation:

    $ git status -s
     M git-stash.sh
    M  read-cache.c

where using git stash -p --no-keep-index, when only changes in
git-stash.sh are added to the stash would reset read-cache.c, but with
git stash -p --no-keep-index -- git-stash.sh, read-cache.c would not
be reset.  

However it does bring things more in line with git stash --
<pathspec>, so I think this is an improvement.

Yup, we only said "HEAD is now at ..." in the non-pathspec case (and
we of course still do).  We didn't report changes to which paths
have been reverted in (or which new paths are removed from) the
working tree to the original state (and we of course still don't).

The messages from reset and clean that reports these probably do not
need to be shown by default to the users (they can always check with
"git stash show" when they are curious or when they want to double
check).

That's a good point. I was going for consistency with the non-pathspec
case, but of course it wouldn't mention any files in the first place,
because it's just done a complete "git reset --hard".

Yeah, that's the right thing. I was just trying to be too clever above.

Yeah, on further reflection, this is definitely the right thing to do.

I'm not sure if you are arguing here that the non-pathspec case should
move to an unconditional "-q", too, to suppress the "HEAD is now at"
message.  But I think that is a good suggestion. It would make the two
cases consistent, and it is not really adding anything of value (it is
always just HEAD, and if you do not provide a custom message, the
short-sha1 and subject are already in the "Saved..." line above).

Yeah, this is an obvious bug-fix. Though given my earlier response to
Junio, I wonder if we should just be doing "reset -q" unconditionally
for most of these calls.

I guess this one does say more than just "HEAD is at..."; it mentions
the files that you _didn't_ pick. Though that now makes it inconsistent
with the pathspec case, especially if you do:

  git stash push -p --no-keep-index -- one

which will mention "two" as remaining with unstaged changes.

Yeah, I noticed this while playing around with patch 2. This seems
like an improvement to me. Unlike the other patches (which are just
tweaking quietness), I think this one really needs a test.

Also, s/changed/changes/ above.

I think it's OK. You can't select (or not select) changes from the index
anyway. TBH, I kind of wonder if "git stash -p --no-keep-index" makes
any sense at all.

> However it does bring things more in line with git stash --

I did notice one other case while looking at this that I think is much
more serious. The "read-tree" call in the non-patch-mode case doesn't
use a pathspec either. So if we have our same setup where "one" and
"two" have unstaged changes and we do:

  git stash push -k one

Then we stash "one", but the change in "two" is wiped out completely!

I don't think read-tree takes pathspecs, so it would have to drop the
"-u" and replace it with checkout-index. I'm confused about why we would
need it in the first place, though. We should have already dealt with
the working tree files in the earlier block, so there should be nothing
to checkout.

The "-u" goes all the way back to 7bedebcaa (stash: introduce 'stash
save --keep-index' option, 2008-06-27). I wonder if it has always been
unnecessary, but we never noticed because it's just a noop.

I wasn't suggesting it (I was just saying that these extra messages
are not something we found necessary for consistency with the
original codepath when we added the pathspec support).  I wasn't
even thinking about what the original codepath did, i.e. when the
command is run without pathspec.

I too suspect that most of the ${GIT_QUIET:+-q} can just become an
unconditional -q as you do.

Thanks both, I do agree that passing -q unconditionally is probably
the right thing to do.  Will do that, and also pass -q unconditionally
to the git reset I addressed in 2/3 here in the re-roll.

Yeah I don't have any use case for it, but maybe someone does, so I
think fixing it this way now is the best way forward.

I do think the "-u" is necessary.  Say we have a repository with
changes in 'foo' and 'bar', where the changes in bar are added to the
index.

Then 'git stash -k' would wipe out the changes in both 'foo' and 'bar'
through 'git reset --hard', but we do want the changes in 'bar' to
still exist on disk, which they wouldn't without the "-u".

But I'll replace the "-u" with checkout-index, so we can respect the
pathspec.

Thanks!

Thanks Junio and Peff for comments and suggestions on the previous
round.

Changes since v1:
- 1/3 now contains the changes that were previously split up into 1/3
  and 2/3, and also makes git reset --hard in the simple 'git stash'
  case quiet unconditionally.
- 2/3 is what was 3/3 in the previous round, and now includes a test
  for the expected behaviour.
- 3/3 is the fix for the bug Peff noticed for git stash -k with
  changes that are not yet in the index.

Thomas Gummerer (3):
  stash: don't show internal implementation details
  stash: pass the pathspec argument to git reset
  stash: keep untracked files intact in stash -k

git stash push uses other git commands internally.  Currently it only
passes the -q flag to those if the -q flag is passed to git stash.  when
using 'git stash push -p -q --no-keep-index', it doesn't even pass the
flag on to the internal reset at all.

It really is enough for the user to know that the stash is created,
without bothering them with the internal details of what's happening.
Always pass the -q flag to the internal git clean and git reset
commands, to avoid unnecessary and potentially confusing output.

For "git stash -p --no-keep-index", the pathspec argument is currently
not passed to "git reset".  This means that changes that are staged but
that are excluded from the pathspec still get unstaged by git stash -p.

Make sure that doesn't happen by passing the pathspec argument to the
git reset in question, bringing the behaviour in line with "git stash --
<pathspec>".

Currently when there are untracked changes in a file "one" and in a file
"two" in the repository and the user uses:

    git stash push -k one

all changes in "two" are wiped out completely.  That is clearly not the
intended result.  Make sure that only the files given in the pathspec
are changed when git stash push -k <pathspec> is used.

Yeah, you're right. It makes me wonder if the "-k" case should be
skipping the "reset --hard". But as this series has shown, this
procedure is sufficiently tricky that it may be a good idea to make the
minimal change.

That makes sense.

I think combining these is fine. The incorrect output with pathspecs
isn't mentioned anymore, but I think that's OK.

This too, though I think "1d" would be the more usual way to say it.

I briefly wondered if this needed "-q" to match the earlier commit, but
"checkout-index" isn't really chatty, so I don't think so (and the
earlier checkout-index doesn't have it either).

I also wondered if this could be done in a single command as:

  git reset -q --hard $i_tree -- "$@"

But "git reset" can't handle pathspecs with "--hard" (which is why the
similar case a few lines above uses the same commands).

So this looks good to me.

I always get nervous when I see test arguments without quotes, but I
think this is fine (and I couldn't see a shorter way of doing it with
test_cmp).

Yeah, they felt so similar now that splitting this up in different
patches would be a bit too noisy.

Right thanks, I'll keep that in mind for another time. (I guess just
changing this doesn't warrant a re-roll?)

Nah, I don't think it's important enough (and I give even odds that
Junio may just tweak it while applying).

Yep, I had the same thoughts here.

Yeah unfortunately, that would have made the previous patch series
quite a bit easier :)  But here it wouldn't help anyway, as git reset
without pathspecs can't handle a tree-ish either, right?  And we also
want to handle the case where no pathspecs are given to git stash.

Hmm yeah I basically copied this from a different test and tweaked it
