This is my attempt for this year's GSoC microproject.

I copied the commit message of the commit[1] mentioned in the microproject
page[2]. Is this OK?

Here is a summary of what I did:
	- simple substitution as in c6f44e1da5[1]. 
	- besides simple substitution, I moved some git command out of command 
		substitution to improve readability, which was not possible with pipes, 
		while in these cases keeping them inside won't discard git's exit code.
	- use actual1 and actual2 in cases where actual is already in use.
	- use `sort -o actual actual` to avoid using actual1 and actual2.

[1] c6f44e1da5 ("t9813: avoid using pipes", 2017-01-04)
[2] https://git.github.io/SoC-2019-Microprojects/

---------------------->8-------------------
The exit code of the upstream in a pipe is ignored thus we should avoid
using it. By writing out the output of the git command to a file, we can
test the exit codes of both the commands.

This line is a bit oddly indented.  This is of course not something
you did, but it did leave me puzzled why the indentation was here
before and if the conversion is actually correct.  To help reviewers,
it would be nice to fix the indentation of this line in a preparatory
patch, and clarify since when this indentation was there and that it
is not correct.

That is if I'm not missing something, and there is not actually a
good reason for this to be indented, but judging from the original and
the conversion in this commit, I don't think there is.

This test is actually failing now (and so is the one just below).  The
reason is that 'wc -l <file>' outputs the number of lines followed by
the filename, so numpath0 includes that.

We have a helper function that avoids exactly that,
'test_line_count'.  See t/README or t/test-lib-functions.sh for more
information on that function.

Before submitting a patch series, please also run the test suite, or
if you are only modifying tests such as in this case, at least the
tests that are modified.

Nit: rather than actual1 and actual2, it might be nice to give the
files slightly more meaningful names, maybe "output" and "normalized",
but feel free to try and come up with something better than that.

Thanks for being interested in this year's GSoC and doing a microproject.

If you take a look at c6f44e1da5 ("t9813: avoid using pipes",
2017-01-04) you can see the following:

    - it changes only one test file: t9813-git-p4-preserve-users.sh
    - its title starts with "t9813: "

It would have been nice if you did the same in your patch (that is
only change one test file and start the patch title with the test file
number).

On the microproject page, we say:

"Students: Please attempt only ONE microproject. We want quality, not quantity!"

And to other students working on a microproject, we also ask them to
focus on only one test file when they make those kinds of changes.

Best,
Christian.

Hi,

Thanks for the reviews.

Here are the changes in the second version:
	- bug fixes
	- add preparatory patch
	- seperate different files to different patch
	- change to use test_line_count in a seperate patch

Also I found that there is no such function as test_char_count, 
is it worthwile to add such function? Here are some stat:

`git grep 'test_line_count' | wc -l` = 626
`git grep 'wc -l' | wc -l` = 294
`git grep 'wc -c' | wc -l` = 68

-- >8 --

This is a preparatory step prior to removing the pipes after git
commands, which discards git's exit code and may mask a crash.

The exit code of the upstream in a pipe is ignored thus we should avoid
using it. By writing out the output of the git command to a file, we can
test the exit codes of both the commands.

The exit code of the upstream in a pipe is ignored thus we should avoid
using it. By writing out the output of the git command to a file, we can
test the exit codes of both the commands.

This transformation makes no sense. The output of 'sed' is fed to 'wc
-l' whose output is redirected to file "numparent", which means that
the output file will end up containing a single line no matter how
many "parent" lines are matched in the input. Since test_line_count()
checks the number of lines in the named file, the test will succeed
unconditionally (which makes for a pretty poor test).

Also, the filename "numparent" doesn't do a good job of representing
what the file is expected to contain. A better name might be
"parents". So, a more correct transformation would be:

    sed -n -e "s/^parent //p" -e "/^author /q" actual >parents &&
    test_line_count = 1 parents

Same comment about bogus transformation. The entire sequence should
collapse to a single line:

    test_line_count = 1 actual

All of the patches in this series are malformed. There should be a
"---" line right here below your sign-off. The "---" line is
recognized by git-am/git-apply as separating the commit message from
the actual diff(s).

It is a very well-established custom in Git tests for the files handed
to test_cmp() to be named "expect" and "actual", so this change is not
the most desirable. What you can do instead is:

    git diff-tree -M -r --name-status HEAD^ HEAD >output &&
    sed -e "s/R[0-9]*/RNUM/" output >actual &&

which allows you to leave the test_cmp() line alone, thus (as a bonus)
makes the patch less noisy.

There is no existing use of "sort -o" anywhere in the Git test suite
(or, for that matter, anywhere else in Git), which should give one
pause before using it here. Although -o is allowed by POSIX, and POSIX
even says it's safe for the output file to have the same name as one
of the input files, there is no guarantee that "sort -o" will be
supported on all platforms, or that all platforms promise that the
output filename can match an input filename (in fact, neither the
MacOS nor FreeBSD man pages for 'sort' make this promise).
Consequently, it would be better to err on the side of safety and
avoid "sort -o", which is easily enough done by using another
temporary file:

    git check-attr --stdin --all <stdin-all >output &&
    sort output >actual &&

The same comment applies to the remaining changes.

It's better because each patch changes only one file, but I also
wanted to say that for a microproject you only need to focus on only
one file. So I would you suggest you keep only the patches that are
about "t0000-basic.sh" and drop the patches about
"t0003-attributes.sh" and "t0022-crlf-rename.sh".

(https://git.github.io/SoC-2019-Microprojects/ has now a "Only ONE
quality focused microproject per student" section with more content.)

It's also a small nit but your patches start with "t0000-basic: " not
just "t0000: " though the latter format is more frequent in existing
commits than the former.

I do think it would be helpful to introduce that helper, especially if
it is useful in this patch series.  There seem to be enough other
places where it can be useful to make it worth adding the helper.

The commit message should also describe why we need this preparatory
step. Maybe something like:

      To reduce the noise in when refactoring this pipeline in a
      subsequent commit fix the indentation.  This has been wrong
      since the refactoring done in 1b5b2b641a ("t0000: modernise
      style", 2012-03-02), but carries no meaning.

Out of curiosity, how did you create the patch?  'git format-patch'
would add a '---' line followed by the diffstat, where you would
usually put the commentary that you put before the scissors line.  It
seems like 'git am' still handles this fine, which I didn't know, just
something I noticed because I'm used to the other format.

Since this patch series is now 5 patches, that commentary should go
into a cover letter (see the --cover-letter option in format-patch),
so the reviewers can read that first, and read the patches with that
in mind, focusing on the patch only, and not additional commentary
that applies to the whole series when reading the patch.

Thanks for the tips! Now I see why "actual" is the most used name for
output files.

You are right. I will make sure I have thoroughly reviewed my patch before

I will do that as I have made too many mistakes. I decided to do more
than one file because
I thought it might be too small even for a microproject and that there
would be more chances
for feedback if I include more files, since the same file tend to have
similar conversions needed.

Got it.

I believe I used git for that. But I cannot think of why it happened nor
reproduce it.

I wasn't aware of this option. I tried to produce the format in others
cover letter using 'git diff' and options like '--stat', '--summary', with no
success. I consulted Documentation/SubmittingPatches, where I got the
idea of cover letter, but it doesn't mention the option '--cover-letter' and
the idea of cover letter is even confused with '--notes'[1].

I just reread some of the GSoC related mails in the mailing list and
found one[2] that introduced the usage of 'cover-letter', '--range-diff' and
'--interdiff'. As a newbie, I personally think it would be helpful to include
theses options along with others mentioned in SubmittingPatches.

Noted. I did check POSIX, I should have also checked the use in Git.

Thanks for the review.

Yeah, it would be useful for Git, but it's not necessary of course for
your microproject, which is already more than big enough.

Or perhaps:

      Fix indentation of a line containing a pipeline to reduce the
noise when refactoring the pipeline in a subsequent commit.

The issue is that there are different things that can be considered
"cover letter". I agree that it's not very clear in
Documentation/SubmittingPatches.

There is the following which is related to --cover-letter:

"Multiple related patches should be grouped into their own e-mail
thread to help readers find all parts of the series.  To that end,
send them as replies to either an additional "cover letter" message
(see below), the first patch, or the respective preceding patch."

but it doesn't mention --cover-letter and it contains "(see below)"
though I don't see what that refers to.

I agree that there is room for improvement in SubmittingPatches.

Thanks,
Christian.
