Subject: [PATCH 2/2] cat-file: -e should not emit output on stderr
Date: Wed, 10 Jan 2018 12:55:54 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20180110125554.12582-3-avarab@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20180110125554.12582-1-avarab@gmail.com>

Change "cat-file -e some-garbage" to work as documented. Before it
would emit:

    $ git cat-file -e some-garbage; echo $?
    fatal: Not a valid object name some-garbage
    128

Now:

    $ ./git-cat-file -e some-garbage; echo $?
    1

This is a change to longstanding behavior established in
7950571ad7 ("A few more options for git-cat-file", 2005-12-03) when
the option was initially added, but we should go with the promise made
in the documentation.
