Hi,

this series teaches git to try and read the .gitmodules file from the
index (:.gitmodules) or from the current branch (HEAD:.gitmodules) when
the file is not readily available in the working tree.

This can be used, together with sparse checkouts, to enable submodule
usage with programs like vcsh[1] which manage multiple repositories with
their working trees sharing the same path.

[1] https://github.com/RichiH/vcsh


Thanks to SZEDER Gábor we found out that the changes in patch 9 could
allow to access the object store in an inconsistent way when using
multi-threading in "git grep --recurse-submodules", this has been dealt
with in this revision.

BTW, with Stefan Beller we also identified some unneeded code which
could have been removed to alleviate the issue, but that would not have
solved it completely; so, I am not removing the unnecessary call to
repo_read_gitmodules() builtin/grep.c in this series, possibly this can
become a stand-alone change.

The problems from above also made me investigate what implications the
current use of a global object store had on my new addition, and now
I know that there is one case which I cannot support just yet: nested
submodules without .gitmodules in their working tree.

This case has been documented with a warning and test_expect_failure
items in tests, and hitting the unsupported case does not alter the
current behavior of git.

Apart form patch 9 and 10 there are no major changes to the previous
iteration.

IMHO we are in a place where the problem has been analyzed with enough
depth, the limitations have been identified and dealt with in a way that
should not affect current users nor diminish the usefulness of the new
code.

v5 of the series is here:
https://public-inbox.org/git/20180917140940.3839-1-ao2@ao2.it/

v4 of the series is here:
https://public-inbox.org/git/20180824132951.8000-1-ao2@ao2.it/

v3 of the series is here:
https://public-inbox.org/git/20180814110525.17801-1-ao2@ao2.it/

v2 of the series is here:
https://public-inbox.org/git/20180802134634.10300-1-ao2@ao2.it/

v1 of the series, with some background info, is here:
https://public-inbox.org/git/20180514105823.8378-1-ao2@ao2.it/

Changes since v5:

  * print_config_from_gitmodules() in patch 1 now accepts a struct
    repository argument.

  * submodule--helper config in patch 5 has been adjusted to use the new
    signature of print_config_from_gitmodules().

  * In patch 9 the grep read lock in builtin/grep.c now covers all code
    paths involving config_from_gitmodules().
    
    FTR git-grep is the only place where config_from_gitmodules() is
    called from multi-threaded code.

  * Patch 9 also documents the rare case that cannot be supported just
    yet, and adds a warning to the user.

  * In patch 9, config_from_gitmodules() now does not read any config
    when the config source is not specified.(I added a catch-all "else"
    block) This match more closely the behavior of the old code using
    git_config_from_file.

  * Added a new test tool in patch 10 to exercise config_read_config()
    in a more direct way, passing an arbitrary repository.
    
    Admittedly, patch 10 performs a similar test to the one added to
    t7814 in patch 9, so I'd be OK with dropping patch 10 if it is too
    specific.

Thank you,
   Antonio

Add a new print_config_from_gitmodules() helper function to print values
from .gitmodules just like "git config -f .gitmodules" would.

This will be used by a new submodule--helper subcommand to be able to
access the .gitmodules file in a more controlled way.

Introduce a new config_set_in_gitmodules_file_gently() function to write
config values to the .gitmodules file.

This is in preparation for a future change which will use the function
to write to the .gitmodules file in a more controlled way instead of
using "git config -f .gitmodules".

The purpose of the change is mainly to centralize the code that writes
to the .gitmodules file to avoid some duplication.

The naming follows git_config_set_in_file_gently() but the git_ prefix
is removed to communicate that this is not a generic git-config API.

Tests 5 and 6 check for the effects of the same commit, merge the two
tests to make it more straightforward to clean things up after the test
has finished.

The cleanup will be added in a future commit.

Tests 5 and 7 in t/t7411-submodule-config.sh add two commits with
invalid lines in .gitmodules but then only the second commit is removed.

This may affect future subsequent tests if they assume that the
.gitmodules file has no errors.

Remove both the commits as soon as they are not needed anymore.

Add a new 'config' subcommand to 'submodule--helper', this extra level
of indirection makes it possible to add some flexibility to how the
submodules configuration is handled.

Use the 'submodule--helper config' command in git-submodules.sh to avoid
referring explicitly to .gitmodules by the hardcoded file path.

This makes it possible to access the submodules configuration in a more
controlled way.

In t/t7506-status-submodule.sh at some point a new scenario is set up to
test different things, in particular new submodules are added which are
meant to completely replace the previous ones.

However before calling the "git submodule add" commands for the new
layout, the .gitmodules file is removed only from the working tree still
leaving the previous content in current branch.

This can break if, in the future, "git submodule add" starts
differentiating between the following two cases:

  - .gitmodules is not in the working tree but it is in the current
    branch (it may not be safe to add new submodules in this case);

  - .gitmodules is neither in the working tree nor anywhere in the
    current branch (it is safe to add new submodules).

Since the test intends to get rid of .gitmodules anyways, let's
completely remove it from the current branch, to actually start afresh
in the new scenario.

This is more future-proof and does not break current tests.

Introduce a helper function named is_writing_gitmodules_ok() to verify
that the .gitmodules file is safe to write.

The function name follows the scheme of is_staging_gitmodules_ok().

The two symbolic constants GITMODULES_INDEX and GITMODULES_HEAD are used
to get help from the C preprocessor in preventing typos, especially for
future users.

This is in preparation for a future change which teaches git how to read
.gitmodules from the index or from the current branch if the file is not
available in the working tree.

The rationale behind the check is that writing to .gitmodules requires
the file to be present in the working tree, unless a brand new
.gitmodules is being created (in which case the .gitmodules file would
not exist at all: neither in the working tree nor in the index or in the
current branch).

Expose the functionality also via a "submodule-helper config
--check-writeable" command, as git scripts may want to perform the check
before modifying submodules configuration.

When the .gitmodules file is not available in the working tree, try
using the content from the index and from the current branch. This
covers the case when the file is part of the repository but for some
reason it is not checked out, for example because of a sparse checkout.

This makes it possible to use at least the 'git submodule' commands
which *read* the gitmodules configuration file without fully populating
the working tree.

Writing to .gitmodules will still require that the file is checked out,
so check for that before calling config_set_in_gitmodules_file_gently.

Add a similar check also in git-submodule.sh::cmd_add() to anticipate
the eventual failure of the "git submodule add" command when .gitmodules
is not safely writeable; this prevents the command from leaving the
repository in a spurious state (e.g. the submodule repository was cloned
but .gitmodules was not updated because
config_set_in_gitmodules_file_gently failed).

Moreover, since config_from_gitmodules() now accesses the global object
store, it is necessary to protect all code paths which call the function
against concurrent access to the global object store. Currently this
only happens in builtin/grep.c::grep_submodules(), so call
grep_read_lock() before invoking code involving
config_from_gitmodules().

Finally, add t7416-submodule-sparse-gitmodules.sh to verify that reading
from .gitmodules succeeds and that writing to it fails when the file is
not checked out.

NOTE: there is one rare case where this new feature does not work
properly yet: nested submodules without .gitmodules in their working
tree.  This has been documented with a warning and a test_expect_failure
item in t7814, and in this case the current behavior is not altered: no
config is read.

Add a test tool to exercise config_from_gitmodules(), in particular for
the case of nested submodules.

Add also a test to document that reading the submoudles config of nested
submodules does not work yet when the .gitmodules file is not in the
working tree but it still in the index.

This is because the git API does not always make it possible access the
object store  of an arbitrary repository (see get_oid() usage in
config_from_gitmodules()).

When this git limitation gets fixed the aforementioned use case will be
supported too.

Can we have the default named? Then we would only use states
from within the enum?

The default would mean:

  "no command passed as a CLI *option*"

I copied this style from builtin/bisect--helper.c::cmd_bisect__helper()
and it's also used in builtin/rebase--helper.c

I can add a name for the default enum value but I am not sure what it
should be: NO_COMMAND_OPTION, COMMAND_DEFAULT, MODE_DEFAULT?

Ciao,
   Antonio

I just saw that t7416 and t7417 have been added in the latest stable
release, I'll wait some days before sending a v7 which renames the newly
added test to t/t7418-submodule-sparse-gitmodules.sh

Thanks,

Why?  Do we use a half-intelligent "switch () { case ...: ... }"
checker that would otherwise complain if we handled "case 0" in such
a switch statement, or something like that?

Are we going to gain a lot more enum members, by the way?  At this
point, this looks more like a

	unsigned check_writable = 0; /* default is not to check */


to me.

Hi,

the CHECK_WRITEABLE operation is alternative to the get/set ones, not
an addition, so I can see the rationale behind Stefan's suggestion:
either have named enums members for all command "modes" or for none of
them; however other users of enum+OPT_CMDMODE seems to think like the
enum is for commands passed as *options* and the unnamed default is for
actions derived from *arguments*. I don't have a strong opinion on this
matter, tho, so just tell me what you prefer and I'll do it for v7.

Using an enum was to have a more explicit syntax in case other commands
were going to be added in the future (I imagine "--stage" or
"--list-all" as possible additions), and does not affect the generated
code, so I though it was worth it.

Anyways, these are really details, let's concentrate on patches 9 and
10 which deserve much more attention. :)

Thanks you,
   Antonio

This only checks the exit code, do we also want to check for

    test_path_is_missing .gitmodules ?

Same for these, is the exit code enough, or do we want to look at
specific things?

git status would want to be clean afterwards?

This now triggers test-lint errors as the most recent maintenance
release took t/t7416 for something else.  I'll do s/t7416-/t7418-/g
on the mailbox before running "git am -s" on this series.

This is an unrelated tangent to the topic, but running "range-diff"
on what has been queued on 'pu' since mid September and this
replacement after doing the renaming was a surprisingly pleasant
experience.  In its comparison between 09/10 of the two iterations,
it showed that 7416's name has been changed to 7418 but otherwise
there is no change in the contents of that test script.

FWIW, tbdiff also gets this right, so the pleasant experience was
inherited without getting broken.  Kudos should go to both Thomas
and Dscho ;-).

OK, I agree, let's re-check also *after* we tried and failed to set
a config value, just to be sure that the code does not get accidentally
changed in the future to create the file. I'll add the check.

Except for the "summary" test which was not even exercising the
config_from_gitmodule path,  checking exist status should be sufficient
to verify that "submodule--helper config" does not fail, but we can
surely do better.

I will add checks to confirm that not only the commands exited without
errors but they also achieved the desired effect, to validate the actual
high-level use case advertised by the test file. This should be more
future-proof.

And I think I'll merge the summary and the update tests.

Mmh, this should have been "submodule update --remote" in the first
place to have any effect, I'll take the chance and rewrite this test in
a different way and also check the effect of the update operation, and
the repository status.

I'll be something like this:

ORIG_SUBMODULE=$(git -C submodule rev-parse HEAD)
ORIG_UPSTREAM=$(git -C upstream rev-parse HEAD)
ORIG_SUPER=$(git -C super rev-parse HEAD)

test_expect_success 're-updating submodule when the gitmodules config is not checked out' '
	test_when_finished "git -C submodule reset --hard $ORIG_SUBMODULE;
	                    git -C upstream reset --hard $ORIG_UPSTREAM;
	                    git -C super reset --hard $ORIG_SUPER;
	                    git -C upstream submodule update --remote;
	                    git -C super pull;
	                    git -C super submodule update --remote" &&
	(cd submodule &&
		echo file2 >file2 &&
		git add file2 &&
		test_tick &&
		git commit -m "add file2 to submodule"
	) &&
	(cd upstream &&
		git submodule update --remote &&
		git add submodule &&
		test_tick &&
		git commit -m "Update submodule"
	) &&
	git -C super pull &&
	# The --for-status options reads the gitmdoules config
	git -C super submodule summary --for-status >actual &&
	cat >expect <<-\EOF &&
	* submodule 951c301...a939200 (1):
	  < add file2 to submodule
	
	EOF
	test_cmp expect actual &&
	# Test that the update actually succeeds
	test_path_is_missing super/submodule/file2 &&
	git -C super submodule update &&
	test_cmp submodule/file2 super/submodule/file2 &&
	git -C super status --short >output &&
	test_must_be_empty output
'

Maybe a little overkill?

The "upstream" repo will be added in test 1 to better clarify the roles
of the involved repositories.

The commit ids should be stable because of test_tick, shouldn't they?

Thanks for the comments, they helped improving the quality of the tests
once again.

I'll wait a few days before sending a v7, hopefully someone will find
time to take another look at patch 9 and comment also on patch 10, and
give an opinion on the "mergeability" status of the whole patchset.

Ciao ciao,
   Antonio

hardcoding hash values burdens the plan to migrate to another
hash function,

    rev1=$(git -C submodule rev-parse --short HEAD^)
    rev2=$(git -C submodule rev-parse --short HEAD)

and then use ${rev1}..${rev2} ?

Wow, very thorough! You might call it overkill, but now that you have it...

Yes, but see
Documentation/technical/hash-function-transition.txt
that a couple people are working on. Let's be nice to them. :-)
