Subject: [PATCH 3/3] builtin/describe: introduce --submodule-error-as-dirty flag
Date: Mon, 20 Mar 2017 17:11:56 -0700
Message-ID: <20170321001156.21915-4-sbeller@google.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20170321001156.21915-1-sbeller@google.com>

git-describe tells you the version number you're at, or errors out, e.g.
when you run it outside of a repository, which may happen when downloading
a tar ball instead of using git to obtain the source code.

To keep this property of only erroring out, when not in a repository,
severe submodule errors must be downgraded to reporting them gently
instead of having git-describe error out completely.

This patch helps to fix the root cause in [1], which tries to work around
this situation.
