Subject: [PATCH] git-submodule.sh: try harder to fetch a submodule
Date: Tue, 15 May 2018 12:40:54 -0700
Message-ID: <20180515194054.84388-1-sbeller@google.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <CAGZ79ka_8GmL9j9mTNLkbqN3xNkfCfedzs2st-tH8jMjQ2A4DQ@mail.gmail.com>

This is the logical continuum of fb43e31f2b4 (submodule: try harder to
fetch needed sha1 by direct fetching sha1, 2016-02-23) and fixes it as
some assumptions were not correct.

The commit states:
> If $sha1 was not part of the default fetch ... fail ourselves here
> assumes that the fetch_in_submodule only fails when the serverside does
> not support fetching by sha1.

There are other failures, why such a fetch may fail, such as
    fatal: Couldn't find remote ref HEAD
which can happen if the remote side doesn't advertise HEAD and we do not
have a local fetch refspec.

Not advertising HEAD is allowed by the protocol spec and would happen,
if HEAD points at an unborn branch for example.

Not having a local fetch refspec can happen when submodules are fetched
shallowly, as then git-clone doesn't setup a fetch refspec.

So do try even harder for a submodule by ignoring the exit code of the
first fetch and rather relying on the following is_tip_reachable to
see if we try fetching again.
