So here is a set of small preparatory steps to help the other topic
to allow "git describe -contains v1.8.3" omit trailing "^0" from its
output.  We do not want to prevent people from allowing "name-rev"
to convert object names other than commit-ishes.

The series should apply on 96ffd4ca (Merge branch
'nk/name-rev-abbreviated-refs', 2013-06-30).

Junio C Hamano (4):
  name-ref: factor out name shortening logic from name_ref()
  name-rev: allow converting the exact object name at the tip of a ref
  describe: use argv-array
  describe/name-rev: tell name-rev to peel the incoming object to commit first

The logic will be used in a new codepath for showing exact matches.

"git name-rev" is supposed to convert 40-hex object names into
strings that name the same objects based on refs, that can be fed to
"git rev-parse" to get the same object names back, so

    $ git rev-parse v1.8.3 v1.8.3^0 | git name-rev --stdin
    8af06057d0c31a24e8737ae846ac2e116e8bafb9
    edca4152560522a431a51fc0a06147fc680b5b18 (tags/v1.8.3^0)

has to have "^0" at the end, as "edca41" is a commit, not the tag
that references it.

The command however did not bother to see if the object is at the
tip of some ref, and failed to convert a tag object.

Teach it to show this instead:

    $ git rev-parse v1.8.3 v1.8.3^0 | git name-rev --stdin
    8af06057d0c31a24e8737ae846ac2e116e8bafb9 (tags/v1.8.3)
    edca4152560522a431a51fc0a06147fc680b5b18 (tags/v1.8.3^0)

Instead of using a hand allocated args[] array, use argv-array API
to manage the dynamically created list of arguments when invoking
name-rev.

With this on top of the other patches in this series, you would get:

    $ git describe --contains $(git rev-parse v1.8.3 v1.8.3^0)
    v1.8.3
    v1.8.3

while you can still differentiate tags and the commits they point at
with:

    $ git name-rev --refs=tags/\* --name-only $(git rev-parse v1.8.3 v1.8.3^0)
    v1.8.3
    v1.8.3^0

The difference in these two behaviours is achieved by adding --peel-to-commit
option to "name-rev" and using it when "describe" internally calls it.

In my opinion this would be a tad clearer if each of the branches of the
"if" returned the value directly rather than setting refname and relying
on the "return" statement that follows.  But it's probably a matter of
taste.

Wait, what?

  $ git name-rev 8af060
  8af060 tags/v1.8.3^0

Isn't this a failure specific to --stdin?

Wait, what is name-rev?

  Finds symbolic names suitable for human digestion for revisions
  given in any format parsable by git rev-parse.

It is meant to name _revisions_ (aka. commits): in that context, what
sense does it make to distinguish between tags/v1.8.3 and
tags/v1.8.3^0?

Essentially a revert of [2/4] for describe-purposes, achieved by
adding an ugly command-line option to name-rev.  Before we argue any
further, let me ask: who uses name-rev (and depends strongly on its
output)?!  Our very own testsuite does not exercise it.  There are
exactly two users of describe/name-rev:

1. prompt, obviously.
2. DAG-tests, for simplification.

I really can't imagine it being useful elsewhere.

I tend to agree; this is a straight-forward code movement (with the
variable name changed to conform to your recent refs.c update to
call these things "refname"), and that was the primary reason I kept
them like so.

That is a mistaken documentation, written based on a half-baked
implementation that conflated "the current code only can handle
commits" with "we need to only handle commit and nothing, ever".

We had to fix a similar misguided/short-sighted implementation in
the "git fetch" codepath when adding "git pull/merge $tag" (the code
peeled a tag object too early when writing FETCH_HEAD out, losing
information if what we were given was a tag or a commit).

I do not want to see us making the mistake worse unnecessarily.
When we see a commit object that is pointed by tag v1.8.3, it is the
right thing to do to return v1.8.3^0 as its string representation so
that "git rev-parse v1.8.3^0" give us the same thing back.  name-rev
that is fed a tag object v1.8.3 should give v1.8.3 (not v1.8.3^0)
back, otherwise feeding its output to "git rev-parse" will not give
us the same thing we fed as the input to name-rev.

This leaks the memory allocated by "args". The original did, too, and it
is probably not that big a deal (we exit right after anyway). The fix
would be something like:

  rc = cmd_name_rev(args.argc, args.argv, prefix);
  argv_array_clear(&args);
  return rc;

I am somewhat mixed on this.

You are changing the default behavior of name-rev and adding a new
option to restore it, so I wonder who (if anyone) might be broken. The
documentation is now also out of date; not only does it not mention
"peel-to-commit", but it claims the argument to name-rev is a
committish, which is not really true without that option.

On the other hand, the new default behavior seems way more sane to me.
In general, I would expect name-rev to:

  1. Behave more or less the same between "git name-rev $sha1" and "echo
     $sha1 | git name-rev --stdin". Your patch improves that. Though I
     note that --peel-to-commit does not affect --stdin at all. Should
     it? And of course the two differ in that the command line will take
     any rev-parse expression, and --stdin only looks for full sha1s.

  2. If name-rev prints "$X $Y", I would expect "git rev-parse $X" to
     equal "git rev-parse $Y". With peeling, that is not the case, and
     you get the misleading example that Ram showed:

       $ git name-rev 8af0605
       8af0605 tags/v1.8.3^0

    or more obviously weird:

       $ git name-rev v1.8.3
       v1.8.3 tags/v1.8.3^0

So I think your series moves in a good direction, but I would just worry
that it is breaking backwards compatibility (but like I said, I am not
clear on who is affected and what it means for them).

I don't think it is a revert. The two patches complement each other.

2/4 is basically "if we have a non-commit object which is pointed at
directly by a tip, make sure we name it by that tip". But you can only
get such an object by "name-rev --stdin", since name-rev peels its
command-line arguments.

4/4 is "stop peeling command line objects, so we can find their exact
tips". IOW, it lets the command line do the same thing that --stdin was
able to do in 2/4.

Yeah, I'm not clear on who we are breaking with the change in default
peeling behavior, nor why the "describe --contains" wrapper wants to
keep it.

To "Should it?", I do not deeply care.  "--peel-to-commit" is an
exception that only is needed to support "describe".

I could instead have tucked "^0" at the end of each argument when
"describe" calls out to "name-rev" without adding this new option,
which is much much closer to what is really going on.

And that will alleviate your #2 below.

Yeah, I tend to think that is a more sane interface, even though it is a
little more work in git-describe.

Although I am still not clear on why it would not be up to the caller of
git-describe in the first place to decide which they wanted.

Thanks for a dose of sanity.

Even though the part of the miniseries that makes sure that "X (Y)"
output from "name-rev" always satisfies that "rev-parse" on X and Y
give the same thing is an improvement, the whole thing about
"describe" is misguided and wrong, I think.

It started from the observation that these do not match:

    $ git describe $(git rev-parse v1.8.3)
    v1.8.3
    $ git describe --contains $(git rev-parse v1.8.3)
    v1.8.3^0

and the miniseries veered in a wrong direction of "fixing" the
latter to match the former.

But the thing is, what is incosistent from the rest of the world is
the describe output without "--contains" for a commit that is
exactly at a tag (i.e. the former), and there is no need to "fix"
this "inconsistency", as we see below.

The form without "--contains" in general reads like this:

    $ git describe --long $(git rev-parse v1.8.3) a717d9e
    v1.8.3-0-gedca415
    v1.8.3-2-ga717d9e

They both name a commit object, but that is sort of an afterthought;
the support for describe name came late at 7dd45e15 (sha1_name.c:
understand "describe" output as a valid object name, 2006-09-20).

The primary purpose of "git describe" without "--contains" is to
give a string that is suitable for a version number to be embedded
in an executable.  For that purpose, "v1.8.3" is more convenient
than "v1.8.3-0-gedca415".

But this convenient format breaks the consistency.  While any other
describe name for a commmit names a commit, the output for a commit
that is exactly at a tag does not (in ancient times, describe output
were not even extended SHA-1 expressions, so this inconsistency did
not matter, but the "afterthought" brought the consistency to the
foreground).  The user chooses the convenience over the consistency
by not using "--long".

And the short form cannot be "v1.8.3^0" or "v1.8.3~0" for the sake of
"consistency", as these are no more suitable as a version number
than a short and sweet "v1.8.3".

The "--contains" form does not even aim to come up with a pleasant
looking version string without using funny line noise characters, so
it is perfectly fine for it to say:

    $ git describe --contains $(git rev-parse v1.8.3) a717d9e
    v1.8.3^0
    v1.8.3.1~9

and these are internally consistent (they both roundtrip via
rev-parse).  Stripping "^0" from the former will break the
consistency, even though it may make the output look prettier, but
the "--contains" output is not even meant to be "pretty" in the
first place.

So let's drop 4/4; it is breaking the system by trying to solve a
problem that does not exist.

This is a correct observation, and I've already submitted the correct
fix: "name-rev: strip trailing ^0 in when --name-only".

Incorrect.  The "--contains" output _is_ meant to be pretty.  That's
the whole reason name-rev --name-only was invented.

[2/4] is correct in that it fixes --stdin for annotated tags (although
the implementation could be simpler, and the commit message is
completely misleading).

Yes; this was meant as a straight rewrite and I did not bother, but
I should have cleaned it up as I meant to build on top.

Will amend, even though I do not think we need to build anything on

Heh, you fooled me.  cmd_name_rev() uses the usual parse-options
machinery that updates args.argv[].  Dashed options that were
consumed will not remain in args.argv[] and argv_array_clear() will
not have a chance to free them, and besides, args.argc and args.argv
will be out of sync and wreaks havoc in argv_array_clear().

We could expose argv_array_push_nodup() and use it in this caller
and then free the args.argv[] but not its contents, but I do not
think it is worth it.
