Subject: [PATCH] Revert "Merge branch 'sb/submodule-core-worktree'" (was Re: Old submodules broken in 2.19rc1 and 2.19rc2)
Date: Fri, 7 Sep 2018 17:09:46 -0700
Message-ID: <20180908000946.GA225427@aiede.svl.corp.google.com> (raw)

Subject: Revert "Merge branch 'sb/submodule-core-worktree'"

This reverts commit 7e25437d35a70791b345872af202eabfb3e1a8bc, reversing
changes made to 00624d608cc69bd62801c93e74d1ea7a7ddd6598.

v2.19.0-rc0~165^2~1 (submodule: ensure core.worktree is set after
update, 2018-06-18) assumes an "absorbed" submodule layout, where the
submodule's Git directory is in the superproject's .git/modules/
directory and .git in the submodule worktree is a .git file pointing
there.  In particular, it uses $GIT_DIR/modules/$name to find the
submodule to find out whether it already has core.worktree set, and it
uses connect_work_tree_and_git_dir if not, resulting in

	fatal: could not open sub/.git for writing

The context behind that patch: v2.19.0-rc0~165^2~2 (submodule: unset
core.worktree if no working tree is present, 2018-06-12) unsets
core.worktree when running commands like "git checkout
--recurse-submodules" to switch to a branch without the submodule.  If
a user then uses "git checkout --no-recurse-submodules" to switch back
to a branch with the submodule and runs "git submodule update", this
patch is needed to ensure that commands using the submodule directly
are aware of the path to the worktree.

It is late in the release cycle, so revert the whole 3-patch series.
We can try again later for 2.20.

Like this (generated using "git revert -m1)?
