In multiple remotes mode, git-fetch is launched for n-1 remotes and the
last remote is handled by the current process. Each of these processes
will in turn run 'gc' at the end.

This is not really a problem because even if multiple 'gc --auto' is run
at the same time we still handle it correctly. It does show multiple
"auto packing in the background" messages though. And we may waste some
resources when gc actually runs because we still do some stuff before
checking the lock and moving it to background.

So let's try to avoid that. We should only need one 'gc' run after all
objects and references are added anyway. Add a new option --no-auto-gc
that will be used by those n-1 processes. 'gc --auto' will always run on
the main fetch process (*).

(*) even if we fetch remotes in parallel at some point in future, this
    should still be fine because we should "join" all those processes
    before this step.

Continue the work started in c45af94dbc ("gc: run pre-detach
operations under lock", 2017-07-11).

Now we'll take the lock before we print out "Auto packing the
repository[...]", and we'll optimistically tolerate a locking failure
at that point instead of dying.

This (mostly) solves two issues:

 1) Fetching in parallel from multiple remotes (or other
    parallel/concurrent "gc --auto") would, when the need_to_gc()
    heuristic fired, emit a bunch of "Auto packing the repository in
    background" messages. See [1] for a description of a "pfetch"
    alias that can trigger such an issue. Now we'll (usually) only
    print one of these messages.

 2) Because we'd call hold_lock_file_for_update() with
    "LOCK_DIE_ON_ERROR" such concurrent "gc" would error out with
    "Another git process seems to be running[...]".

    Now we'll (usually) avoid that by saying that "gc --auto" locking
    isn't so important. We tolerate a lock failure on "gc --auto" with
    the assumption that a "gc --auto" runs frequently enough that any
    one such invocation can fail, whereas without "--auto" we'll error
    on failure to acquire the lock

Why "mostly" and "usually"? There's still unaddressed caveats with
these two, respectively:

 1) The gc.pid lock is only held while the "git gc" runs. Thus a
    "pfetch" operation as described in [1] might start N jobs, one of
    which runs "gc", finishes, and then "gc --auto" finds it needs to
    run again in the context of a single (from the user's perspective)
    git command.

    I don't think that's worth dealing with. The cases where we'll
    find we need to take action "gc --auto" right after it's finished
    are rare (see e.g. [2]).

 2) There's still the unresolved race condition noted in c45af94dbc
    where we "hand off" the lock to the child process we fork under
    gc.autoDetach=true. It means we might start another "gc --auto" if
    we're so unlucky as to make the check and get the lock in the time
    the "real" earlier "gc --auto" parent/child process takes to
    "unlock() && fork() && lock()".

    Fixing that is outside the scope of this change. It's fixable by
    refactoring the lockfile.c code and daemonize() so that we'd e.g.:

      1. parent: lock() in parent, write PID to gc.pid
      2. parent: fork() the child process
      3. child: spin for X amount of time waiting until gc.pid lists
         our PID, not our parent's
      4. parent: amend the gc.pid lock to
         s/PARENT_PID/CHILD_PID/ (in-place rename(gc.pid.new,
         gc.pid)), fsync(gc.pid) and exit()
      5. child: notices updated gc.pid, proceeds with its gc. Does
         delete_tempfile(gc.pid) before exit()
      6. parent: Once lock is handed over (child trusted to poll the
         lock) exit() without delete_tempfile(gc.pid)

    Using some cross-process lock handover like that we could
    guarantee that there's never a point at which an outside process
    could get the gc.pid lock, that the PID written in the file always
    referred to a live process, and with #3 reasonably
    guarantee (aside from pathological scheduling shenanigans) that we
    don't blindly hand the PID off to a process that's already
    finished with its gc.

Testing for this new behavior is hard.

This patch is part of a WIP branch I have that's a bit of a mess. It's
more-gc-detach-under-lock on github.com/avar/git.git. It doesn't apply
on master because it relies on some previous test work, but for RFC
purposes I figured it was better to send it stand-alone.

But I think this sort of approach is better than Duy's proposed patch,
because...

This is what I'm trying to fix in my version of this patch. This is
only true for yours if you assume that the user is going to be
invoking "fetch" in a single terminal window, IOW that we have an
implicit global mutex of one top-level git command at a time.

Wheras mine fixes e.g. the same issue for:

    parallel 'git fetch {}' ::: $(git remote)

Ditto for you running a "git" command and your editor running a
"fetch" at the same time.

A similar "one terminal" assumption was made when changing the
auto-detach behavior in your 62aad1849f ("gc --auto: do not lock refs
in the background", 2014-05-25).

To be clear, I think that (and your patch here) would (mostly) be an
improvement. I just wonder if we can do better.

I got stuck with this WIP series of mine because while it's mostly
ready sans the 'Why "mostly" and "usually"' caveats mentioned in my
commit message, I wondered if we couldn't do much better by:

 a) Do some version of reverting your 62aad1849f, this would entirely
    get rid of this need for handing off a lock to a child (noted
    above), but as-is would have e.g. "commit" run into a *.lock.

    Is that mitigated by 4ff0f01cb7 ("refs: retry acquiring reference
    locks for 100ms", 2017-08-21)? Or could we have "gc" run in some
    "lock-less" mode where it does all the work of expiring a
    ref/reflog at a given OID, and if it changed just tries again
    without needing to *.lock it except for the brief period of
    changing the already prepared file?

 b) If we couldn't do "a" for whatever reason implement some "locking
    priority" where a not-gc command could create a file (which "gc"
    would poll) saying "I want it for real work, release it!", or
    alternatively "gc" would create "*.locked-by-gc" in addition to
    "*.lock" files, and if the "*.locked-by-gc" was seen when the
    100ms retry would kick in, we'd make that say 10 seconds instead
    of 100 ms.

You could sort of avoid the problem here too with

parallel 'git fetch --no-auto-gc {}' ::: $(git remote)
git gc --auto

It's definitely simpler, but of course we have to manually add
--no-auto-gc in everywhere we need, so not quite as elegant.

Actually you could already do that with 'git -c gc.auto=false fetch', I guess.

The point of the 'parallel' example is to show disconnected git
commands, think trying to run 'git' in a terminal while your editor
asynchronously runs a polling 'fetch', or a server with multiple
concurrent clients running 'gc --auto'.

That's the question my RFC patch raises. As far as I can tell the
approach in your patch is only needed because our locking for gc is
buggy, rather than introduce the caveat that an fetch(N) operation won't
do "gc" until it's finished (we may have hundreds, thousands of remotes,
I use that for some more obscure use-cases) shouldn't we just fix the
locking?

Yeah, that makes sense.

I was surprised that we needed a new command-line option here, but I
guess the sub-fetch processes really have no idea that they're
subservient to a multi-remote fetch (they do get "--append", but of
course somebody could specify that independently).

Another option would be to just pass "-c gc.auto=0" to the child
processes to inhibit auto-gc. But maybe it makes sense to have a nicer
interface (after all, somebody else could be doing the same "let's do a
bunch of fetches in a row" without using the multi-fetch code).

Though there I kind of wonder if this would apply to other scripted
uses, too. E.g., if I'm doing a bunch of commits, I might want to
inhibit auto-gc and then run it myself at the end. Should we support
"GIT_AUTO_GC=0" in the environment (and a matching "git --no-auto-gc
..." option that could be used here)?

My musings above aside, the patch looks correct to me.

This has the added advantage that the gc is deterministically run only
once after all of the fetches. Whereas any locking scheme is going to
run it randomly for at least _one_ of the fetches, but there may be
other fetches afterwards.

In a sense it might not matter, because any fetches which complete after
the auto-gc finishes would either trigger a new auto-gc or not. And if
not, then one could argue that it wasn't necessary.

But as a general rule, the cost of gc scales with the repo size, not
with the number of unpacked objects. So it's more efficient to stick as
many updates as you can into a single gc; the cost is running a gc at
all, not the incremental cost of including the new fetches. Or put
another way, by leaving some fetches from this round of commands out of
the gc, we will require another expensive gc sooner.

> Actually you could already do that with 'git -c gc.auto=false fetch', I guess.

Yeah. I wrote my other response before reading this part of the thread,
but IMHO Ævar's example argues even more for "git --no-auto-gc".

I think there may be room for both approaches. Yours fixes the repeated
message in the more general case, but Duy's suggestion is the most
efficient thing.

I agree that the "thousands of remotes" case means we might want to gc
in the interim. But we probably ought to do that deterministically
rather than hoping that the pattern of lock contention makes sense.

We do it deterministically, when gc.auto thresholds et al are exceeded
we kick one off without waiting for other stuff, if we can get the lock.

I don't think this desire to just wait a bit until all the fetches are
complete makes sense as a special-case.

If, as you noted in <20190619190845.GD28145@sigill.intra.peff.net>, the
desire is to reduce GC CPU use then you're better off just tweaking the
limits upwards. Then you get that with everything, like when you run
"commit" in a for-loop, not just this one special case of "fetch".

We have existing potentially long-running operations like "fetch",
"rebase" and "git svn fetch" that run "gc --auto" for their incremental
steps, and that's a feature.

It keeps "gc --auto" dumb enough to avoid a pathological case where
we'll have a ballooning objects dir because we figure we can run
something "at the end", when "the end" could be hours away, and we're
adding a new pack or hundreds of loose objects every second.

So I don't think Duy's patch is a good way to go.

The rationale in its commit message for including it can be better
addressed by something like my WIP for just fixing the locking
mechanism, since it fixes the stated problems of multiple "auto packing
in the background" messages and the "we may waste some resources" (we
take the lock earlier before doing 'real' work) without introducing its
own pathological case of deferring "gc --auto" too much as we have
unchecked object growth.

I think that's really important. It's OK if "gc --auto" isn't optimal,
but we should really avoid such pathological cases.

It's also important that it's easy to explain, i.e. if this patch goes
in I think it should update the second paragraph of the git-gc.txt
docs. I.e. now it's not just:

    When common porcelain operations that create objects are run, they
    will check whether the repository has grown substantially since the
    last maintenance[...]

But also something like:

    Except in cases where we're running porcelain commads that
    themselves might re-run aggregates of themselves, in which case we
    defer "gc" until the end. This currently only applies to "fetch",
    but other commands such as "rebase" etc. might learn to do this in
    the future. Note that if the sub-commands are numerous enough this
    might itself become pathological as "gc --auto" is deferred too
    much, so use option/config XYZ to ...

Or whatever...

This changes the remaining <non-empty?> special snowflake test modes
to <boolean> and gets rid of test_tristate() in favor of the now
standard "boolea" test.

I'm replying to my "gc: run more pre-detach operations under lock"
thread because one of the things my WIP patches to make gc locking
less sucky depends on is new GIT_TEST_GC_* test modes to test its
racyness, which in turn depends on these cleanups.

We have many GIT_TEST_* variables that accept a <boolean> because
they're implemented in C, and then some that take <non-empty?> because
they're implemented at least partially in shellscript.

Add a helper that wraps git_env_bool() and git_env_ulong() as the
first step in fixing this. This isn't being added as a test-tool mode
because some of these are used outside the test suite.

Part of what this tool does can be done via a trick with "git config"
added in 83d842dc8c ("tests: turn on network daemon tests by default",
2014-02-10) for test_tristate(), i.e.:

    git -c magic.variable="$1" config --bool magic.variable 2>/dev/null

But as subsequent changes will show being able to pass along the
default value makes all the difference, and we'll be able to replace
test_tristate() itself with that.

The --mode-bool option will be used by subsequent patches, but not
--mode-ulong. I figured it was easy enough to add it & test for it so
I left it in so we'd have wrappers for both git_env_*() functions.

Change test code added in c0234b2ef6 ("stat_tracking_info(): clear
object flags used during counting", 2008-07-03) to stop using the
"script" variable also used for lazy prerequisites in
test-lib-functions.sh.

Since this test uses test_i18ncmp and expects to use its own "script"
variable twice it implicitly depends on the C_LOCALE_OUTPUT
prerequisite not being a lazy prerequisite. A follow-up change will
make it a lazy prerequisite, so we must remove this landmine before
inadvertently stepping on it as we make that change.

Change the GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON variable from being "non-empty?" to
being a more standard boolean variable.

Since it needed to be checked in both C code and shellscript (via test
-n) it was one of the remaining shellscript-like variables. Now that
we have "git env--helper" we can change that.

A previous change to the "GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON" variable left this
paragraph needing to be re-flowed. Let's do that in this separate
change to make it easy to see that there's no change here when viewed
with "--word-diff".

The test_tristate helper introduced in 83d842dc8c ("tests: turn on
network daemon tests by default", 2014-02-10) can now be better
implemented with "git env--helper" to give the variables in question
the standard boolean behavior.

The reason for the "tristate" was to have all of false/true/auto,
where "auto" meant either "false" or "true" depending on what the
fallback was. With the --default option to "git env--helper" we can
simply have e.g. GIT_TEST_HTTPD where we know if it's true because the
user asked explicitly ("true"), or true implicitly ("auto").

This breaks backwards compatibility for explicitly setting "auto" for
these variables, but I don't think anyone cares. That was always
intended to be internal.

This means the test_normalize_bool() code in test-lib-functions.sh
goes away in addition to test_tristate(). We still need the
test_skip_or_die() helper, but now it takes the variable name instead
of the value, and uses "git env--bool" to distinguish a default "true"
from an explicit "true" (in those "explicit true" cases we want to
fail the test in question).

Change the GIT_TEST_FAIL_PREREQS variable from being "non-empty?" to
being a more standard boolean variable. I recently added the variable
in dfe1a17df9 ("tests: add a special setup where prerequisites fail",
2019-05-13), having to add another "non-empty?" special-case is what
prompted me to write the "git env--helper" utility being used here.

Converting this one is a bit tricky since we use it so early and
frequently in the guts of the test code itself, so let's set a
GIT_TEST_FAIL_PREREQS_INTERNAL which can be tested with the old "test
-n" for the purposes of the shell code, and change the user-exposed
and documented GIT_TEST_FAIL_PREREQS variable to a boolean.

Nah to me -c is much nicer (and flexible too). The only thing I'm not
sure about is whether a user could override it. If fetch.c adds -c
gc.auto=0 automatically, and the user wants auto gc back, will "git -c
gc.auto=non-zero fetch --multiple" still work?

I haven't checked git_config_push_parameter() carefully, but I have an
impression that the parameter order there is "wrong", at least in this
case.

export GIT_CONFIG=gc.auto=0 ?

It depends what you're trying to get it to do.

I'd expect that command to turn on auto-gc for just the outer fetch
(i.e., overriding any on-disk disabling of auto-gc), but keep it off for
the child fetches. And I think that is how it would behave: the outer
fetch only sees the config you provided. The inner ones see
"gc.auto=non-zero gc.auto=0-zero" because git_config_push_parameter()
appends. And they accept the latter under last-one-wins rules.

If you expect to be able to re-enable auto-gc in the child fetches, then
I don't think there would be a way to do that.

Almost. The parser for GIT_CONFIG_PARAMETERS is very picky about seeing
single quotes around each item, which makes it a little unfriendly to
use manually. Plus there may be existing values if your script was
invoked as "git -c whatever my-script".

It's probably not that big a deal for a script to just use "git -c
gc.auto" to inhibit auto-gc for each command that needs it.

gc --auto is added at arbitrary points to help garbage collection. I
don't think it's ever intended to "do gc at this and that exact
moment", just "hey this command has taken a lot of time already (i.e.
no instant response needed) and it may have added a bit more garbage,
let's just check real quick".

Are we optimizing for a rare (large scale) case? Such setup requires
tuning regardless to me.

> So I don't think Duy's patch is a good way to go.

This reminds me of being perfect is the enemy of the good. A normal
user has a couple remotes at most, finishing fast (enough) and in such
case it's a good idea to wait until everything is in before running
gc.

Of course making git-gc more robust wrt. parallel access is great, but
it's hard work. Dealing with locks is always tricky, especially when
new locks can come up any time.

Having said that, I don't mind if my patch gets dropped. It was just a
"hey that multiple gc output looks strange, hah the fix is quite
simple" moment for me.

If you tweak the limit upwards, then you're more likely to exist in the
non-gc'd state, where reads are penalized. The gc limit is a tradeoff
between paying the price for maintenance work versus paying the price
for having an unmaintained state. So the optimal time is generally right
after you've finished a big chunk of writing, but before you've started
doing a bunch of reading (for continuous operations that are reading and
writing, there's probably some periodic crossover point every N units of
operation).

That said, I doubt it matters more than a few percent either way (if
that). So I'm fine if we want to optimize for simplicity.

That sounds like the "gc: run more ..." depends on these (iow, that
should be the reply to these, not the other way around)?

I am asking because I see obvious value in these "uniformly require
<boolean>" consistency change (which could be backward incompatible,
but as long as these are GIT_TEST_*, we do not mind too much forcing
developers to adjust), but not yet in the "gc: run more ..." one,
and do not want these to be taken hostage.

Thanks.

Yeah, not just the most efficient, but it is a low-hanging-fruit
that is very obvious.

In the process chain starting from the topmost "git fetch
<multiple>", that calls multiple "git fetch <one>" for individual
remotes, that does network transfer and calls "git index-pack" (or
"git unpack-objects"), the bottommost layer knows how much cruft one
step among "thousands of remotes" created for a later "gc", but
there is no mechanism for them to report the information back to
their callers.  Unlike "git svn" that periodically calls the auto gc
every N commits and can claim to be aware of its cruft creation rate
;-), the information available to the topmost "git fetch" is only
the number of underlying fetches, counting a no-op fetch and a fetch
that is close to a full clone equally, which is not a good way to
gauge the cruft creation rate X-<.

A useful deteministic triggering would be a good thing to aim in the
longer run, but would be somewhat involved to design and implement,
I am afraid.

It may be a fairly useless nitpick, but is there a reason why we
should not just reuse "--type=<bool|int|...>" that is understood by
"git config"?  In the longer term, it might make sense to expose
this subcommand as "git env" that sits next to "git config", and at
that point we would regret if we miss the opportunity for obvious
parallel between the two.

The default must be supplied?  That makes it smell like it should
not be a command line "option", as it is not optional at all.  Off
the top of my head without the benefit of insight you gained by
working on the remainder of the series (read: this is merely my knee
jerk reaction, and it is very probable that there is sound rationale
why your design is not like what I'll outline), I would imagine an
interface that look more like:

 $ git env --type=bool --default=yes GIT_TEST_FOO 

    Says "true"/"false" on the standard output and exits with
    success status if $GIT_TEST_FOO is set to the usual
    truth/falsehood values, and gives "true" on the exits with
    success status if $GIT_TEST_FOO is unset.

 $ git env --type=bool GIT_TEST_FOO

    The same as above when $GIT_TEST_FOO is set; exits with failure
    when GIT_TEST_FOO is not exported.

 $ git env --type=bool [--default=yes] --exit-code GIT_TEST_FOO

    Similar to the above two, but the standard output is silent, and
    true/false/failure are given via the exit status (perhaps 0, 1
    and 125 or something like that).

No kidding.  "--mode-bool" does not like "--default=false"?

Well spotted (eh, I suspect that you didn't until you actually stomped
on the landmine and saw it trigger, and then pretending to have had
the perfect foresight in this series, which is perfectly fine ;-),
and nicely done.

Hmph.  Even though I earlier said "we do not terribly mind breaking
developers and that is why we allow these patches", I have second
thoughts.  Turning "If it is empty, it is false" to "if you want to
say false, say it in one of those approved ways" is one thing.
Forcing SWITCH=YesPlease to be rewritten to SWITCH=yes is quite
different---we are breaking everybody who would have to read and
follow po/README and t/README.

We _might_ have to grandfarther YesPlease as a special value that is
understood by "git env" (but not "git config") to ease the
transition, as that token has been used as a sample true value in
many places.

But let's read on.  Assuming that breaking those who hardcoded
YesPlease in their scripts is OK, this patch looked sensible.

Thanks.

Is that "boolean" test?

I had a lot of trouble with the external interface to "env--helper",
but I kind of liked the changes to the tests that makes the use of
these environment variables uniform and consistent.  One fewer
things to remember.

In addition to the other review on 1/6, t0016 is taken at the tip of
'pu'; we would want to renumber to avoid test-lint complaints.

Yeah the tests in that otherwise unrelated series loosely depends on
this, so I figured I'd try to get this in first.

Yeah these should be viewed independently. Perhaps I shouldn't have

This v2 fixes tricky bugs I noticed after sending v1 in calling
gettext so early in the setup, and the t0016 name clash with pu Junio
pointed out.

I didn't change the "env--helper" interface as suggested because I
already had this ready and figured I'd send a v2 for review of the
stuff I have now.

The interface suggested in
<xmqqa7ecnjot.fsf@gitster-ct.c.googlers.com> is indeed prettier. FWIW
I did things like --mode-bool instead of --type=bool because it's
easier to do just with the getopt framework, likewise --variable=X
instead of "X" being last on the argv since you can do it all with the
flag parsing doing the work for you, and since it's an internal-only
command I figured it didn't matter much.

Simplify an overly verbose test added in 9b25a0b52e ("config: add
include directive", 2012-02-06). The "expect" file was never used, and
by using .gitconfig it's not as intuitive to reproduce this manually
with "-d" as some other tests, since HOME needs to be set in the
environment.

Also remove the use of test_i18ngrep added in a769bfc74f ("config.c:
mark more strings for translation", 2018-07-21) in favor of overriding
the GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON value.

Using the i18n test wrappers hasn't been needed since my
6cdccfce1e ("i18n: make GETTEXT_POISON a runtime option", 2018-11-08).
As a follow-up change to the yet-to-be-added t0017-env-helper.sh will
show, doing it this way can hide a regression when combined with
trace2's early config reading. That early config reading was added in
bce9db6de9 ("trace2: use system/global config for default trace2
settings", 2019-04-15).

So let's remove the testing for that potential regression here, I'll
instead add it explicitly to t0017-env-helper.sh in a follow-up
change.

We have many GIT_TEST_* variables that accept a <boolean> because
they're implemented in C, and then some that take <non-empty?> because
they're implemented at least partially in shellscript.

Add a helper that wraps git_env_bool() and git_env_ulong() as the
first step in fixing this. This isn't being added as a test-tool mode
because some of these are used outside the test suite.

Part of what this tool does can be done via a trick with "git config"
added in 83d842dc8c ("tests: turn on network daemon tests by default",
2014-02-10) for test_tristate(), i.e.:

    git -c magic.variable="$1" config --bool magic.variable 2>/dev/null

But as subsequent changes will show being able to pass along the
default value makes all the difference, and we'll be able to replace
test_tristate() itself with that.

The --mode-bool option will be used by subsequent patches, but not
--mode-ulong. I figured it was easy enough to add it & test for it so
I left it in so we'd have wrappers for both git_env_*() functions.

Prepare die_bad_number() for a change to specially handle
GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON calling git_env_bool() by making
die_bad_number() not call gettext() early, which would in turn call
git_env_bool().

There's no meaningful change here yet, just a re-arrangement of the
current code to make that subsequent change easier to read.

Change test code added in c0234b2ef6 ("stat_tracking_info(): clear
object flags used during counting", 2008-07-03) to stop using the
"script" variable also used for lazy prerequisites in
test-lib-functions.sh.

Since this test uses test_i18ncmp and expects to use its own "script"
variable twice it implicitly depends on the C_LOCALE_OUTPUT
prerequisite not being a lazy prerequisite. A follow-up change will
make it a lazy prerequisite, so we must remove this landmine before
inadvertently stepping on it as we make that change.

Change the GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON variable from being "non-empty?" to
being a more standard boolean variable.

Since it needed to be checked in both C code and shellscript (via test
-n) it was one of the remaining shellscript-like variables. Now that
we have "env--helper" we can change that.

There's a couple of tricky edge cases that arise because we're using
git_env_bool() early, and the config-reading "env--helper".

If GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON is set to an invalid value die_bad_number()
will die, but to do so it would usually call gettext(). Let's detect
the special case of GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON and always emit that
message in the C locale, lest we infinitely loop.

As seen in the updated tests in t0016-env-helper.sh there's also a
caveat related to "env--helper" needing to read the config for trace2
purposes.

Since the C_LOCALE_OUTPUT prerequisite is lazy and relies on
"env--helper" we could get invalid results if we failed to read the
config (e.g. because we'd loop on includes) when combined with
e.g. "test_i18ngrep" wanting to check with "env--helper" if
GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON was true or not.

I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that a test similar to the one I
removed in the earlier "config tests: simplify include cycle test"
change in this series won't happen again, and testing for this
explicitly in "env--helper"'s own tests.

A previous change to the "GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON" variable left this
paragraph needing to be re-flowed. Let's do that in this separate
change to make it easy to see that there's no change here when viewed

The test_tristate helper introduced in 83d842dc8c ("tests: turn on
network daemon tests by default", 2014-02-10) can now be better
implemented with "git env--helper" to give the variables in question
the standard boolean behavior.

The reason for the "tristate" was to have all of false/true/auto,
where "auto" meant either "false" or "true" depending on what the
fallback was. With the --default option to "git env--helper" we can
simply have e.g. GIT_TEST_HTTPD where we know if it's true because the
user asked explicitly ("true"), or true implicitly ("auto").

This breaks backwards compatibility for explicitly setting "auto" for
these variables, but I don't think anyone cares. That was always
intended to be internal.

This means the test_normalize_bool() code in test-lib-functions.sh
goes away in addition to test_tristate(). We still need the
test_skip_or_die() helper, but now it takes the variable name instead
of the value, and uses "git env--bool" to distinguish a default "true"
from an explicit "true" (in those "explicit true" cases we want to
fail the test in question).

Change the GIT_TEST_FAIL_PREREQS variable from being "non-empty?" to
being a more standard boolean variable. I recently added the variable
in dfe1a17df9 ("tests: add a special setup where prerequisites fail",
2019-05-13), having to add another "non-empty?" special-case is what
prompted me to write the "git env--helper" utility being used here.

Converting this one is a bit tricky since we use it so early and
frequently in the guts of the test code itself, so let's set a
GIT_TEST_FAIL_PREREQS_INTERNAL which can be tested with the old "test
-n" for the purposes of the shell code, and change the user-exposed
and documented GIT_TEST_FAIL_PREREQS variable to a boolean.

I don't mean we can't ever change the algorithm, but that we've
documented:

    When common porcelain operations that create objects are run, they
    will check whether the repository has grown substantially since the
    last maintenance[...]

The "fetch" command is a common porcelain operation, when it fetches
from N remotes it just runs an invocation of itself, so thus far it's
both worked & been intuitive that if we needed (potentially multiple)
gc's while doing that we'd just go ahead and run it then, even if
something concurrent was happening.

No that's not optimal in many cases, but at least doesn't create caveats
we don't have now where we have runaway object growth.

At least for me it doesn't require custom tuning before this patch of
yours.

I.e. now "gc --auto" is dumb enough that you can run it on everything
from stuff that just does "commit" from cron, user's laptops, massive
rebases that take forever, and e.g. "stats" like jobs where for
<reasons> I'll add thousands of repos and "fetch --all" them (so e.g. I
can run "log --author=<x> --all").

Yeah of course I'm an advanced user and I can just grumble and manually
invoke fetch, actually I'll probably submit a follow-up patch to add a
gc.* config to disable this thing.

But I think even if the use-case is rather obscure it's important that
if at all possible we keep "gc" elastic enough to work for pretty much
all combinations of object-adding porcelain commands, and I think in
this case we're better off doing things differently...

Even a user with two remotes will run into issues with your patch where
"gc" will print things twice, or outright error due to concurrent access
by another process, which as has been discussed here on-list is *very*
common e.g. with editor integration.

So the extent of my complains about this is:

 1) The edge case with runaway object growth (obscure)

 2) It doesn't really fix the bug except for the narrow case of users
    who invoke things one-terminal-at-a-time and don't e.g. have an
    editor with "git" integration & a terminal (not obscure).

Maybe I should have led with #2 :)

Anyway, I'm not *just* complaining. I have patches too, but so far I'm
up to 8 patches on what's probably just the first one-third of
it. *Sigh*.

But the 2/3 of that if you want to dig through my crappy WIP code on
GitHub is instrumenting the test suite to demonstrate that with an
approach like what your patch does we still get these GC race
conditions, because our locking still sucks, which brings me to...

I've poked at it a bit now, and it's really not hard, I think it's just
that nobody looked at it hard enough before.

The issue is that currently we do:

    1. parent: do_we_need_gc();
    2. parent: say_way_will_gc();
    3. parent: lock();
    4. parent: do_a_bit_of_work();
    5. parent: unlock();
    6. parent: fork();
    7. child: lock();
    8. child: do_a_lot_of_work();
    9. child: unlock();

My RFC patch currently changes that to:

    1. parent: do_we_need_gc();
    2. parent: lock_or_silently_exit();
    3. parent: say_way_will_gc();
    4. parent: do_a_bit_of_work();
    5. parent: unlock();
    6. parent: fork();
    7. child: lock();
    8. child: do_a_lot_of_work();
    9. child: unlock();

I.e. we won't duplicate the message, but *do* introduce the caveat that
it's in principle possible nobody gc's, but in practice when we fail to
get the lock in lock_or_silently_exit() it's because we lost the race to
a sister process that's going to do the actual GC, so all is well.

But we are left with the brief race when we fork. My RFC patch proposed
some elaborate PID hand-over dance to deal with this. But having looked
at it again I think we can easily get rid of that race too with just:

    1. parent: do_we_need_gc();
    2. parent: lock_or_silently_exit();
    3. parent: say_way_will_gc();
    4. parent: do_a_bit_of_work();
    5. parent: fork();
    6. parent: <writes child pid to gc.lock>
    7. parent: <exits without unlocking gc.lock>
    8. child: do_a_lot_of_work();
    9. child: unlock();

Which can fail in cases where the child segfaults, or manages to exit
earlier than the parent etc, hence my earlier proposed elaborate pid
hand-over dance.

But looking at it again we only usurp an existing gc.lock if the mtime
is >12hrs, so it's OK if we have very rare cases where the PID info got
corrupted, we can still back ourselves out of it, which is what I was
paranoid about.

Furthermore the gc.lock contains the <hostname><pid> of the working
process, but we can in a backwards-compatible way add new entries to
that file, i.e. list both the child & parent pid. Older clients will
just read whichever one comes first, but if we make new versions check
both we can be more paranoid going forward.

Perhaps have something like 'default: BUG("wrong cmdmode");'

as I am getting

    error: 'ret' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]

from here.

Giving an otherwise useless initial value to ret would be a
workaround.

I've added this on top of the topic before merging to keep the
integration going at least for now.

In this case the compiler is wrong, and gcc/clang in e.g. Debian
unstable doesn't warn about this since the analyzer sees that it's
impossible for "ret" to be uninitialized.

I can change it anyway, and if I rewrite the UI of this command it might
go away anyway.

Just thought I'd ask if appeasing older analyzers is what we want for
these sorts of optional warnings in general.

Now with:

 * The --type=bool etc. Ui change to env--bool.

 * I considered supporting YesPlease for gettext poison, but didn't go
   for it. Details in updated commit message.

 * "default" "case" arm fork warning on some compilers.

Simplify an overly verbose test added in 9b25a0b52e ("config: add
include directive", 2012-02-06). The "expect" file was never used, and
by using .gitconfig it's not as intuitive to reproduce this manually
with "-d" as some other tests, since HOME needs to be set in the
environment.

Also remove the use of test_i18ngrep added in a769bfc74f ("config.c:
mark more strings for translation", 2018-07-21) in favor of overriding
the GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON value.

Using the i18n test wrappers hasn't been needed since my
6cdccfce1e ("i18n: make GETTEXT_POISON a runtime option", 2018-11-08).
As a follow-up change to the yet-to-be-added t0017-env-helper.sh will
show, doing it this way can hide a regression when combined with
trace2's early config reading. That early config reading was added in
bce9db6de9 ("trace2: use system/global config for default trace2
settings", 2019-04-15).

So let's remove the testing for that potential regression here, I'll
instead add it explicitly to t0017-env-helper.sh in a follow-up
change.

We have many GIT_TEST_* variables that accept a <boolean> because
they're implemented in C, and then some that take <non-empty?> because
they're implemented at least partially in shellscript.

Add a helper that wraps git_env_bool() and git_env_ulong() as the
first step in fixing this. This isn't being added as a test-tool mode
because some of these are used outside the test suite.

Part of what this tool does can be done via a trick with "git config"
added in 83d842dc8c ("tests: turn on network daemon tests by default",
2014-02-10) for test_tristate(), i.e.:

    git -c magic.variable="$1" config --bool magic.variable 2>/dev/null

But as subsequent changes will show being able to pass along the
default value makes all the difference, and we'll be able to replace
test_tristate() itself with that.

The --type=bool option will be used by subsequent patches, but not
--type=ulong. I figured it was easy enough to add it & test for it so
I left it in so we'd have wrappers for both git_env_*() functions, and
to have a template to make it obvious how we'd add --type=int etc. if
it's needed in the future.

Prepare die_bad_number() for a change to specially handle
GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON calling git_env_bool() by making
die_bad_number() not call gettext() early, which would in turn call
git_env_bool().

There's no meaningful change here yet, just a re-arrangement of the
current code to make that subsequent change easier to read.

Change test code added in c0234b2ef6 ("stat_tracking_info(): clear
object flags used during counting", 2008-07-03) to stop using the
"script" variable also used for lazy prerequisites in
test-lib-functions.sh.

Since this test uses test_i18ncmp and expects to use its own "script"
variable twice it implicitly depends on the C_LOCALE_OUTPUT
prerequisite not being a lazy prerequisite. A follow-up change will
make it a lazy prerequisite, so we must remove this landmine before
inadvertently stepping on it as we make that change.

Change the GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON variable from being "non-empty?" to
being a more standard boolean variable.

Since it needed to be checked in both C code and shellscript (via test
-n) it was one of the remaining shellscript-like variables. Now that
we have "env--helper" we can change that.

There's a couple of tricky edge cases that arise because we're using
git_env_bool() early, and the config-reading "env--helper".

If GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON is set to an invalid value die_bad_number()
will die, but to do so it would usually call gettext(). Let's detect
the special case of GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON and always emit that
message in the C locale, lest we infinitely loop.

As seen in the updated tests in t0017-env-helper.sh there's also a
caveat related to "env--helper" needing to read the config for trace2
purposes.

Since the C_LOCALE_OUTPUT prerequisite is lazy and relies on
"env--helper" we could get invalid results if we failed to read the
config (e.g. because we'd loop on includes) when combined with
e.g. "test_i18ngrep" wanting to check with "env--helper" if
GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON was true or not.

I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that a test similar to the one I
removed in the earlier "config tests: simplify include cycle test"
change in this series won't happen again, and testing for this
explicitly in "env--helper"'s own tests.

This change breaks existing uses of
e.g. GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON=YesPlease, which we've documented in
po/README and other places. As noted in [1] we might want to consider
also accepting "YesPlease" in "env--helper" as a special-case.

But as the lack of uproar over 6cdccfce1e ("i18n: make GETTEXT_POISON
a runtime option", 2018-11-08) demonstrates the audience for this
option is a really narrow set of git developers, who shouldn't have
much trouble modifying their test scripts, so I think it's better to
deal with that minor headache now and make all the relevant GIT_TEST_*
variables boolean in the same way than carry the "YesPlease"
special-case forward.

A previous change to the "GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON" variable left this
paragraph needing to be re-flowed. Let's do that in this separate
change to make it easy to see that there's no change here when viewed
with "--word-diff".

The test_tristate helper introduced in 83d842dc8c ("tests: turn on
network daemon tests by default", 2014-02-10) can now be better
implemented with "git env--helper" to give the variables in question
the standard boolean behavior.

The reason for the "tristate" was to have all of false/true/auto,
where "auto" meant either "false" or "true" depending on what the
fallback was. With the --default option to "git env--helper" we can
simply have e.g. GIT_TEST_HTTPD where we know if it's true because the
user asked explicitly ("true"), or true implicitly ("auto").

This breaks backwards compatibility for explicitly setting "auto" for
these variables, but I don't think anyone cares. That was always
intended to be internal.

This means the test_normalize_bool() code in test-lib-functions.sh
goes away in addition to test_tristate(). We still need the
test_skip_or_die() helper, but now it takes the variable name instead
of the value, and uses "git env--bool" to distinguish a default "true"
from an explicit "true" (in those "explicit true" cases we want to
fail the test in question).

Change the GIT_TEST_FAIL_PREREQS variable from being "non-empty?" to
being a more standard boolean variable. I recently added the variable
in dfe1a17df9 ("tests: add a special setup where prerequisites fail",
2019-05-13), having to add another "non-empty?" special-case is what
prompted me to write the "git env--helper" utility being used here.

Converting this one is a bit tricky since we use it so early and
frequently in the guts of the test code itself, so let's set a
GIT_TEST_FAIL_PREREQS_INTERNAL which can be tested with the old "test
-n" for the purposes of the shell code, and change the user-exposed
and documented GIT_TEST_FAIL_PREREQS variable to a boolean.

Yeah, examples of such "let's help users with common compilers so
that they can focus on real errors" are abound.

Thanks.

Yup, it is fine to start small/minimal.  In addition, obviously we
would eventually want "string" type (in fact, it would probably be
the reasonable default when --type=<type> option is missing, once
this becomes a real command and not a test helper).

This makes it look as if --type=<type> is not among options, which I
am not sure is the impression we would want to give, as I doubt we
would want to keep it mandatory in the long run, but I'd say it is
OK for two reasons (1) as we start minimal, it is OK to keep this
mandatory, and (2) this gives us a place to enumerate available
types.

The output from "git env--helper -h" may redundantly list the
"--type" option, though.

OK, that more-or-less is equivalent to what git_config_bool_or_int()
does, except that I would say "if (default_int < 0)" to match the
original more closely if I were doing this.

I do not think we want to assign 0 to 'ret' if we are not doing
"exit_code".  "We successfully found that the variable's value is
false, said that to standard output, and signal success by exiting
with 0 status" is what we would want, no?

I think

	sane_unset MISSING &&

is needed, as I do not think test-lib.sh filters that variable from
the tester's environment from being seen by us.

> +	test_must_fail git env--helper --type=bool --default=1xyz MISSING &&

Both I and you know that the current implementation of env--helper
happens to notice and bail for failing to parse --default without
even consulting the variable, but we do not have to rely on such an
implementation detail.

Speaking of that particular implementation detail, if the variable
is not missing, should we even parse and complain what is in --default?
I think the answer is "yes, for catching bugs in the script, that is
more useful behaviour".

If that is the design principle, we should also test cases where an
existing variable is given with a --default that is unparseable and
make sure that the command fails.

Ditto for sane_unset MISSING upfront.

As I said already, it is a horrible calling convention to make the
mode that produces textual output to fail when the variable is set
to false.  The above two should read more like

    echo true >expect &&
    git env--helper --type=bool --default=true MISSING >actual &&
    test_cmp expect actual &&
    echo false >expect &&
    git env--helper --type=bool --default=0 MISSING >actual &&
    test_cmp expect actual &&

The helper is called only when GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON has a
non-empty string as its value, so it's default is meaningless, no?

Once upon a time the GIT_SVN_TEST_HTTPD environment variable needed to
be set to enable SVN HTTP tests [1].

Then 3b072c577b (tests: replace test_tristate with "git env--helper",
2019-06-21) came along, and attempted to turn GIT_SVN_TEST_HTTPD into
a bool, but while doing so it mistyped the variable name, and started
to check GIT_TEST_HTTPD instead.  Consequently, if someone explicitly
set GIT_TEST_HTTPD to true and has only the general 'git-svn'
dependencies installed but not the Subversion server modules for
Apache (libapache2-mod-svn), then a couple of 'git-svn' tests fail,
because they can't start httpd due to the missing module.

We could simply fix this by checking the GIT_SVN_TEST_HTTPD
variablewith 'git env--helper', but notice that the name of this
variable doesn't conform to our usual GIT_TEST_* convention.

So let's check the GIT_TEST_SVN_HTTPD instead.

Once upon a time GIT_TEST_HTTPD was a tristate variable and we
exported 'GIT_TEST_HTTPD=YesPlease' in our CI scripts to make sure
that we run the httpd tests in the Linux Clang and GCC build jobs, or
error out if they can't be run for any reason [1].

Then 3b072c577b (tests: replace test_tristate with "git env--helper",
2019-06-21) came along, turned GIT_TEST_HTTPD into a bool, but forgot
to update our CI scripts accordingly.  So, since GIT_TEST_HTTPD is set
explicitly, but its value is not one of the standardized true values,
our CI jobs have been simply skipping the httpd tests in the last
couple of weeks.

Set 'GIT_TEST_HTTPD=true' to restore running httpd tests in our CI
jobs.

Wow.  I vaguely recall having mumbled about keeping YesPlease as an
extra synomym for 'yes' for safety against misconversions, as its
use in the build/test infrastructure is so ingrained, but at the end
went with the standard set of boolean without doing such extending,
with the hope that soon any misconversion would be found out.

This discovery of a misconversion took 3 months, which may or may
not match the definition of "soon" X-<.

The fix is obviously correct.  Thanks.

Yikes, good catch.

I wonder if it would be possible for the test suite to catch this. I
think env--helper would have written a message to stderr, but because we
use --exit-code, we can't tell the difference between that and "false".

I think we'd have go back to something more like:

  test_tristate () {
	bool=$(git env--helper --type=bool --default=true "$1") ||
		eval "error \"$1 is not a bool: \$$1\""
	test "$bool" = "true"
  }
  ...
  if test_tristate GIT_TEST_HTTPD
  then
	... use httpd ...
  fi

Not sure if it's worth it.

No, '--exit-code' only suppresses the printing of 'true' and 'false',
but it doesn't have any effect on the command's exit code.  And if the
value of the environment variable is not a bool, then it does print an
error message to standard error, and, more importantly, exits with 128
(as opposed to 1 indicating false).  So we could tell the difference,
but as it happens the command is invoked as 'if ! git env-helper ...',
which then interprets that 128 the same as on ordinary false.

  $ VAR=false git env--helper --type=bool --default=false --exit-code VAR ; echo $?
  1
  $ VAR=true git env--helper --type=bool --default=false --exit-code VAR ; echo $?
  0
  $ VAR=YesPlease git env--helper --type=bool --default=false --exit-code VAR ; echo $?
  fatal: bad numeric config value 'YesPlease' for 'VAR': invalid unit
  128

The env var is supposed to be a bool, so there is no third state
anymore.

> 	bool=$(git env--helper --type=bool --default=true "$1") ||

Some callsites use '--default=false', so we need a second parameter to
specify the default.

Well...  On one hand, there are no other similar issues in our CI
scripts (there is still a GIT_TEST_CLONE_2GB=YesPlease, but it's only
ever checked with 'test -z' in 't5608-clone-2gb.sh', so it works as
expected, even though it's inconsistent, and
'GIT_TEST_CLONE_2GB=NoThanks' would do the wrong thing).

OTOH, some unsuspecting devs might still have a
'GIT_TEST_foo=YesPlease' in their 'config.mak' from the old days...

Furthermore, as for the "good catch", I just got lucky, and not only
once but several times in a row: that Perforce filehost outage the
other day errored one of my builds, so I came up with a fix [1], for
once took the extra effort and checked it on Azure Pipelines, and
since that was my first ever build over there, out of curiosity I
scrolled through the whole build output, by chance those "skipped:
Network testing disabled (unset GIT_TEST_HTTPD to enable)" lines
caught my eye, shrugged and thought that Dscho should better fix this,
but then an hour later got suspicious, so looked up a recent Travis CI
build, and...  here we are.

I have to wonder how much longer it could have been remained
unnoticed, if the Perforce filehost hadn't failed or if I hadn't made
the gitgitgadget PR for my fix, or...

Anyway, this is just a long-winded way to say that I think we should
validate those bools properly and error loudly on an invalid value
even if it doesn't seem to worth it.
