Please forgive my not knowing the proper way to report this ... we have a few breakages on the NonStop port (which has finally caught up to 2.16, yay!). The test run takes a very long time to run, so this is preliminary. I'm also not sure who should try to resolve these.

For 1308:

Value not found for "foo.bar"
not ok 23 - proper error on directory "files"
#
#               echo "Error (-1) reading configuration file a-directory." >expect &&
#               mkdir a-directory &&
#               test_expect_code 2 test-config configset_get_value foo.bar a-directory 2>output &&
#               grep "^warning:" output &&
#               grep "^Error" output >actual &&
#               test_cmp expect actual
test_expect_code: command exited with 1, we wanted 2 test-config configset_get_value foo.bar a-directory

It looks like the exit code is coming back as 1 not 2. There is also a file except vs expect.
./trash directory.t1308-config-set: ls
a-directory  actual  config2  except  expect  output  result

For 1404: It looks like the error was detected, but the test case was not structured to handle where the detection occurred. Here's what I see:

not ok 52 - delete fails cleanly if packed-refs file is locked

#               prefix=refs/locked-packed-refs &&

The test that leaves "except" does look wrong.  The relevant part
looks like this:

    test_expect_success 'find value with highest priority from a configset' '
            echo hask >expect &&
            test-config configset_get_value case.baz config2 .git/config >actual &&
            test_cmp expect actual
    '

    test_expect_success 'find value_list for a key from a configset' '
            cat >except <<-\EOF &&
            sam
            ...
            EOF
            test-config configset_get_value case.baz config2 .git/config >actual &&
            test_cmp expect actual
    '

The invocations of test-config in these two tests look exactly the
same, at least to me, so whatever comes out of the command and
stored in 'actual' must match what the first test stored in 'expect'
and compared the same as 'actual' in that test.

So the second test is probably asking a wrong question to test-config
but because it prepares an expected answer in a wrong file, it did
not even notice that it is asking a wrong question X-<.

The wrong test comes from 4c715ebb ("test-config: add tests for the
config_set API", 2014-07-28); I do not know offhand if the author of
that change is still around.

Having said all that, I suspect that the "except" thing may not have
anything to do with what you are observing; sorry for not ending up
to be very helpful X-<.

Sadly, fixing the "except" thing causes the test to break now. I can't make
sense of the intent of this, unless the test is to find unmatching keys and
it really does mean "except"

That is exactly what I wanted to say.  If you want to "fix" it,
you'd need to figure out what the author of the "except" thing
wanted to test, adjust the args given to test-config (it cannot be
the same as the test-config invocation of the previous test), and
then fix the typo s/except/expect/.  Changing the typo alone *will*
of course make the test fail, because then the file with the
corrected name, i.e. "expect", has bogus lines that does not match
how the current invocation of "test-config" command is expected to
output.

Hi Guys,

I was the original author of the test, I am sorry about the typo.

I will submit a patch fixing the test. The fix can be checked at
https://github.com/git/git/pull/451.

'configset_get_value' will be changed to 'configset_get_value_multi'
since the test expects a list of values instead of a single value.

Thanks,
Tanay Abhra
