Subject: [PATCH] builtin/clone: avoid failure with GIT_DEFAULT_HASH
Date: Fri, 11 Sep 2020 23:38:15 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200911233815.2808426-1-sandals@crustytoothpaste.net> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200911151717.43475-1-matheus.bernardino@usp.br>

If a user is cloning a SHA-1 repository with GIT_DEFAULT_HASH set to
"sha256", then we can end up with a repository where the repository
format version is 0 but the extensions.objectformat key is set to
"sha256".  This is both wrong (the user has a SHA-1 repository) and
nonfunctional (because the extension cannot be used in a v0 repository).

This happens because in a clone, we initially set up the repository, and
then change its algorithm based on what the remote side tells us it's
using.  We've initially set up the repository as SHA-256 in this case,
and then later on reset the repository version without clearing the
extension.

We could just always set the extension in this case, but that would mean
that our SHA-1 repositories weren't compatible with older Git versions,
even though there's no reason why they shouldn't be.  And we also don't
want to initialize the repository as SHA-1 initially, since that means
if we're cloning an empty repository, we'll have failed to honor the
GIT_DEFAULT_HASH variable and will end up with a SHA-1 repository, not a
SHA-256 repository.

Neither of those are appealing, so let's tell the repository
initialization code if we're doing a reinit like this, and if so, to
clear the extension if we're using SHA-1.  This makes sure we produce a
valid and functional repository and doesn't break any of our other use
cases.
