Hello Lukas and welcome to git hacker community!  It looks like
your first patch, so some details to point out, most of which
should be covered in `Documentation/SubmittingPatches'

No need for a From/Date/Subject in the body of the email
(they're already in the subject), unless From or Subject differs
from what's already in the email header.

Since git-svn is a subsection, a better subject might be:

  Subject: git-svn: support multi-line ignore-paths in config

(but needs clarification, below)

> In addition we should add multi line support for include-paths.

Can you clarify whether this allows multi-line support is
intended to allow importing paths with newlines in them?

Or is this to support multiple values of include-paths?

(judging from the code below, it seem like the latter)

In any case, we prefer full sentence(s) in the commit message

Thanks, though S-o-b generally includes the full name, so:

  Signed-off-by: Lukas Pupka-Lipinski <>

is more appropriate

Empty fields aren't necessary, you can drop the above 4 lines.

That looks like it would munge the following:

	[svn-remote "foo"]
		ignore-paths = a
		ignore-paths = b

into "a\nb\n"

And finally into a regexp: /ab/

...Which doesn't seem correct, to me.

I suggest something like the following to retrieve values
from `git config --get-all' in array context and join the
values together into one regexp (totally untested):

	my @v = eval { command('config', '--get-all', $k) };
	chomp(@v); # get rid of trailing newlines
	$self->{ignore_regexp} = '(?:' . join('|', @v) . ')';


I'm not sure how git-config or chomp() behaves on Windows systems
with CRLF line endings, though.

A possibility would be replacing chomp(@v) with:

	s/\r?\n\z//s for @v;

But that is more verbose and less readable (and slower).

Also, you had a second patch which didn't hit the list but got
into my inbox.  It contained an HTML part which vger rejects due
to processing costs and likelyhood of being spam.

Could you resend that as plain text?  Some of my comments above
would also apply to your second patch.  Thanks.
