Subject: [PATCH v2] parse-options: don't emit "ambiguous option" for aliases
Date: Wed, 17 Apr 2019 14:44:38 +0200
Message-ID: <20190417124438.8191-1-avarab@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190325202329.26033-3-avarab@gmail.com>

Change the option parsing machinery so that e.g. "clone --recurs ..."
doesn't error out because "clone" understands both "--recursive" and
"--recurse-submodules" to mean the same thing.

Initially "clone" just understood --recursive until the
--recurses-submodules alias was added in ccdd3da652 ("clone: Add the
--recurse-submodules option as alias for --recursive",
2010-11-04). Since bb62e0a99f ("clone: teach --recurse-submodules to
optionally take a pathspec", 2017-03-17) the longer form has been
promoted to the default.

But due to the way the options parsing machinery works this resulted
in the rather absurd situation of:

    $ git clone --recurs [...]
    error: ambiguous option: recurs (could be --recursive or --recurse-submodules)

Let's re-use the PARSE_OPT_NOCOMPLETE flag to mean "this option
doesn't contribute to abbreviation ambiguity". I was going to add a
new PARSE_OPT_NOABBREV flag, but it makes sense just to re-use
PARSE_OPT_NOCOMPLETE.

See
https://public-inbox.org/git/20190325202329.26033-1-avarab@gmail.com/
for v1. There wasn't consensus for 1/2 there, but this used-to-be 2/2
seems like a no-brainer bugfix.

It conflicted with some recently-landed stuff in 'master', but now
cleanly applies to it and 'pu', and with pu's
GIT_TEST_DISALLOW_ABBREVIATED_OPTIONS.
