These patches reduce

  ./doc-diff --from-asciidoc --to-asciidoctor --cut-footer HEAD HEAD

from ~1200 to ~1000 lines. It's the usual mix of things where one or the
other of the tools renders something less well, or where we're doing
something odd in the source and we just happen to notice it in the diff.

My ulterior motive here is to have a smaller doc-diff when I post a
patch to switch the default to Asciidoctor (with xmlto), so that it gets
a bit easier to reason about. But if everybody gets prettier docs,
that's also good.

Some of these rephrase wording such as "other peoples' commits" to avoid
that apostrophe at the end of a word. I'm hoping those rephrasings don't
regress the quality of the text -- if they do, I'll be happy to try
something else.

AsciiDoc matches up the very first backtick with the single quote
towards the end, and renders that first backtick literally:

    `--force, ... other peoples' commits

Rewrite the "other peoples' commits" construction to drop the single
quote mark.

Similar to the previous commit, the use of backticks for monospacing and
a single quote as an apostrophe trip up AsciiDoc in two places which
render as follows:

    `git range-diff ... diffs' coloring

    ‘1` is ... commits' patches

Reword slighly to avoid those last single quotes.

Asciidoctor renders 'git cat-file' with the single quotes. It's somehow
tricked by the single quote in "srcref\'s" earler in the paragraph. If
we drop the backslash, we'll regress with AsciiDoc. Let's just rewrite
things a bit to avoid "srcref's" entirely.

Add backticks for monospacing around these refs and command invocations
while at it.

git-log.txt and git-show.txt want to use different defaults for the
`--no-diff-merges` option. They do this by defining a
"diff-merges-default" attribute as, e.g., `off` (with backticks), which
is then referenced in the common diff-options.txt.

AsciiDoc renders the default in monospace, as wanted, but Asciidoctor
renders the backticks literally.

Pull the formatting into diff-options.txt and define
"diff-merges-default" without any quotation or markup. We can't write
`{diff-merges-default)` with backticks since that would render as
"{diff-merges-default}", but we can use +{diff-merges-default}+ -- both
Asciidoc and Asciidoctor do the substitution and the parsing of the
plusses in the order we want.

Unlike AsciiDoc, Asciidoctor seems to leave out an empty line after a verse
in a list continuation:

  allow only certain refs.

       config key: svn-remote.<name>.ignore-refs
  If the ignore-refs configuration key is ...

We could probably convince Asciidoctor do this differently, but thinking
about it, there's no real reason for a "verse" here. We might as well
use a listing block.

This is the only place in our documentation that uses this "config key:
foo.bar" construction. We could rework it into prose ("This option
overrides the foo.bar configuration, which defaults to baz."). Right
now, let's just solve the immediate issue of the missing empty line when
we use Asciidoctor to generate the manpage.

In a few places, we wrap the name of an --option or an ENV_VARIABLE in
backtick+apostrophe rather than backtick+backtick. Switch to using
two backticks, as per the coding guidelines.

As an added bonus to rendering these as monospace, we will have them
render the same with AsciiDoc and Asciidoctor. The `quoted' way ends up
as ‘quoted’ vs “quoted”.

It is sad, but we really should try "something else", unfortunately.

I do agree with the "motive" very much---even though condensing it
down to plain text before running comparison already loses too much
information, doc-diff is the only tool we currently have to
effectively review regressions in rendered document, and the
proposed transition cannot be done safely with confidence without
being able to vet the differences.  I am happy to hear about 17%
reduction already, but the requirement to rewrite things like "other
peoples' commits" is a dealbreaker.

I am not so worried about the existing text you rewrote in these
patches.  I however do not want to see asciidoc(tor) dictating use
of a strange dialect of English when we write new documentation or
update existing ones by imposing rules like "you are not allowed to
use apostrophe-es to express possessive, and instead use 'of'"; it
will become a continuing burden for anybody who writes documentation
for us.

A typesettig rule like "instead of double-dashes --, use {litdd}" is
an acceptable way out.  At least that wouldn't constrain what the
final product that gets delivered to the end-users can say.

Thanks.

I somehow find this sentence a bit hard to grok.  Do you mean
"instead of typesetting them emphasized, the two-word phrase is
enclosed in a pair of literal single quotes"?

I also was puzzled by this one and the previous "cat-file" thing,
mostly because I couldn't tell if this is an unrelated problem that
happens to be around the same single-quote letter, or somehow
happens only because the single-quoted 'cat-file' was nearby, until
I checked the patch text (and it seems that this is "here is another
problem around apostrophe").

I have no problem with this particular rephrasing from "srcref's
value" to "value of srcref", but forbidding possessive "'s" from any
future documentation is troubling.

The proposed log message did not explain why you wanted to avoid
double-quote pair on the "cat-file" line.  Is this meant as a
workaround for the "single quotes are shown around git cat-file"
issue?

Thanks.

These changes are good, but what happens the next time somebody
inadvertedly introduces something that "trips" asciidoctor?

We should be submitting bug reports to the asciidoctor project as well,
so in the future it's less likely we find ourselves in the same
scenario.

Preferably the bug report should be in the commit message.

Cheers.

I'd perhaps write:

  `srcref`'s value...

but I'm a little afraid to see how it is handled by the various parsers
(I'd write it because it does look OK in most markdown parsers I've
used).

That said, I think in this case "value of `srcref`" is actually an
improvement to the text (but I wouldn't say the same of the earlier
patches, which feel like they are making things clunkier).

I've done some experimenting now with a new attribute "apos" which
expands to a lone SQ. It seems to work fine across the different tools.
The rule could be that all ' should be {apos}. That's a quite
aggressive rule in a sense. It could be narrowed down to something like
"... if the paragraph contains other quotation, such as backticks or
single quotes", but that's probably just overly complicating things.

I don't see an immediate need to go s/'/{apos}/ just because we can.
We've identified five problematic spots, four of which are with the tool
we're moving away from.

I don't have an account with the website they use for their issue
tracking. If you want to submit a bug report and post the link here,
that's fine by me and I'll include it in the reroll.

Yes. I will improve the description.

I think this is a case of several things going on in one paragraph in a
way that confuses the tool. As Felipe commented, it's probably correct
to call it out as an Asciidoctor bug. If we hit is *once* across all our
documentation, I think it's correct to work around it [and report the
bug, if we can], but not let the experience impose a blanket rule on
ourselves that we mustn't do anything that even resembles this
paragraph.

Hmm, I've somehow tended to think that it's 'git foo' the tool and `git
foo --bar baz` the actual invocation. SQs for the former, backticks for
the latter. Like, `git cat-file` is not a correct invocation of 'git
cat-file'. But I think I'm starting to see the error in my ways --
CodingGuidelines says to use backticks around command names, so it
really should be `git cat-file`. And changing that might just happen to
avoid the issue that triggered this patch.

Thanks for your comments.

If I understood correctly the deal-breaker is as a long-term solution.

These particular patches may be welcome right now to reduce the
doc-diff, but eventually these issues should be fixed in asciidoctor.

I would rather fix it in asciidoctor (the ones that are actually
asciidoctor issues)

Hmmm. `git status`, `git branch`, `git diff`, `git log`.

All these are both "tools" **and** invocations. In fact, you an pretty
much "invoke" any thing: `git checkout` might not do anything... But it
runs.

Yes, it's GitHub. I'm not interested in having an account there. There's
some trade-off there with me not being able to report bugs, but that
cuts both ways, so I don't feel bad about it.

Thanks. If you have better things to do, no worry.

Here are three variants where AsciiDoc 8.6.10 renders the same, with
emphasis:

  single quotes that will not render literally: 'git cat-file'.

  single quotes that won't render literally: 'git cat-file'.

  single quotes that\'ll render literally: 'git cat-file'.

With Asciidoctor (2.0.15),

  asciidoctor -b docbook5 -d manpage -o test.xml test.txt

the XML contains

<simpara>single quotes that will not render literally: <emphasis>git
cat-file</emphasis>.</simpara>
<simpara>single quotes that won&#8217;t render literally:
<emphasis>git cat-file</emphasis>.</simpara>
<simpara>single quotes that&#8217;ll render literally: 'git cat-file'.</simpara>

That last paragraph is not as expected. I expect <emphasis>.

I realize that a good answer here is "don't do that then". But the
background is that there's some other stuff going on that means AsciiDoc
needs that backspaced apostrophe. So this is a minimal reproduction for
Asciidoctor where we've lost some of the AsciiDoc-specific background.

A fix that works with both tools is an attribute:

  :apos: '
  single quotes that won{apos}t render literally: 'git cat-file'.

I don't see what are those both ways, but OK.

I do, but reporting bugs doesn't that *that* much time.

I'm not talking about the XML, I'm talking about the man pages. I'm not
interested in intermediary code, I'm interested in the final output,
which does seem to work correctly:

  ruby -r asciidoctor <<\EOF
  puts Asciidoctor.convert(<<REOF, backend: :manpage)
  single quotes that will not render literally: 'git cat-file'.
  single quotes that won't render literally: 'git cat-file'.
  single quotes that\'ll render literally: 'git cat-file'.
  REOF
  EOF

  single quotes that will not render literally: \(aqgit cat\-file\(aq.
  single quotes that won\(cqt render literally: \(aqgit cat\-file\(aq.
  single quotes that\(cqll render literally: \(aqgit cat\-file\(aq.

Cheers.
