  To: git

Here are the topics that have been cooking.  Commits prefixed with '-' are
only in 'seen' (formerly 'pu'---proposed updates) while commits prefixed
with '+' are in 'next'.  The ones marked with '.' do not appear in any of
the integration branches, but I am still holding onto them.

You can find the changes described here in the integration branches of the
repositories listed at

    http://git-blame.blogspot.com/p/git-public-repositories.html

[Graduated to 'master']

* es/worktree-repair (2020-08-31) 5 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2020-08-31 at 604825c5e4)
 + init: make --separate-git-dir work from within linked worktree
 + init: teach --separate-git-dir to repair linked worktrees
 + worktree: teach "repair" to fix outgoing links to worktrees
 + worktree: teach "repair" to fix worktree back-links to main worktree
 + worktree: add skeleton "repair" command

 "git worktree" gained a "repair" subcommand to help users recover
 after moving the worktrees or repository manually without telling
 Git.  Also, "git init --separate-git-dir" no longer corrupts
 administrative data related to linked worktrees.


* hv/ref-filter-misc (2020-08-28) 8 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2020-09-02 at 9a8bb84f20)
 + ref-filter: add `sanitize` option for 'subject' atom
 + pretty: refactor `format_sanitized_subject()`
 + ref-filter: add `short` modifier to 'parent' atom
 + ref-filter: add `short` modifier to 'tree' atom
 + ref-filter: rename `objectname` related functions and fields
 + ref-filter: modify error messages in `grab_objectname()`
 + ref-filter: refactor `grab_objectname()`
 + ref-filter: support different email formats

 The "--format=" option to the "for-each-ref" command and friends
 learned a few more tricks, e.g. the ":short" suffix that applies to
 "objectname" now also can be used for "parent", "tree", etc.


* jk/worktree-check-clean-leakfix (2020-08-27) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2020-08-31 at 220fc43629)
 + worktree: fix leak in check_clean_worktree()

 Leakfix.


* js/ci-squelch-false-failure (2020-09-02) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2020-09-03 at 254f390305)
 + ci: avoid ugly "failure" in the `ci-config` job
 + ci: fix indentation of the `ci-config` job

 CI noise reduction.


* jt/interpret-branch-name-fallback (2020-09-02) 3 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2020-09-03 at 28914ab788)
 + wt-status: tolerate dangling marks
 + refs: move dwim_ref() to header file
 + sha1-name: replace unsigned int with option struct

 "git status" has trouble showing where it came from by interpreting
 reflog entries that recordcertain events, e.g. "checkout @{u}", and
 gives a hard/fatal error.  Even though it inherently is impossible
 to give a correct answer because the reflog entries lose some
 information (e.g. "@{u}" does not record what branch the user was
 on hence which branch 'the upstream' needs to be computed, and even
 if the record were available, the relationship between branches may
 have changed), at least hide the error to allow "status" show its
 output.


* os/vcbuild (2020-09-08) 3 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2020-09-08 at 56551401c2)
 + contrib/buildsystems: fix expat library name for generated vcxproj
  (merged to 'next' on 2020-09-03 at 0216ec9cb9)
 + vcbuild: fix batch file name in README
 + vcbuild: fix library name for expat with make MSVC=1

 Fix build procedure for MSVC.


* pb/imap-send-updates (2020-08-31) 3 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2020-09-02 at 899fca3919)
 + git-imap-send.txt: add note about localized Gmail folders
 + git-imap-send.txt: do verify SSL certificate for gmail.com
 + git-imap-send.txt: don't duplicate 'Examples' sections

 "git imap-send" updates.


* so/separate-field-for-m-and-diff-merges (2020-08-31) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2020-08-31 at 8def2984ca)
 + revision: add separate field for "-m" of "diff-index -m"

 Internal API clean-up to handle two options "diff-index" and "log"
 have, which happen to share the same short form, more sensibly.


* ss/submodule-summary-in-c (2020-08-12) 4 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2020-08-17 at 9bc352cb70)
 + submodule: port submodule subcommand 'summary' from shell to C
 + t7421: introduce a test script for verifying 'summary' output
 + submodule: rename helper functions to avoid ambiguity
 + submodule: remove extra line feeds between callback struct and macro
 (this branch is used by ss/submodule-summary-in-c-fixes.)

 Yet another subcommand of "git submodule" is getting rewritten in C.


* ss/submodule-summary-in-c-fixes (2020-08-27) 3 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2020-09-02 at 7f959811b8)
 + t7421: eliminate 'grep' check in t7421.4 for mingw compatibility
 + submodule: fix style in function definition
 + submodule: eliminate unused parameters from print_submodule_summary()
 (this branch uses ss/submodule-summary-in-c.)

 Fixups to a topic in 'next'.


* tb/repack-clearing-midx (2020-08-28) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2020-08-28 at 4204c0cb5e)
 + midx: traverse the local MIDX first
  (merged to 'next' on 2020-08-27 at a465875cbb)
 + builtin/repack.c: invalidate MIDX only when necessary

 When a packfile is removed by "git repack", multi-pack-index gets
 cleared; the code was taught to do so less aggressively by first
 checking if the midx actually refers to a pack that no longer
 exists.

--------------------------------------------------
[New Topics]

* al/t3200-back-on-a-branch (2020-09-08) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2020-09-09 at 833e2fc60c)
 + t3200: clean side effect of git checkout --orphan

 Test fix.

 Will merge to 'master'.


* bc/rev-parse-path-format (2020-09-08) 1 commit
 - rev-parse: add option for absolute or relative path formatting

 "git rev-parse" can be explicitly told to give output as absolute
 or relative path.


* ds/maintenance-part-3 (2020-09-06) 6 commits
 - maintenance: recommended schedule in register/start
 - maintenance: add start/stop subcommands
 - maintenance: add [un]register subcommands
 - for-each-repo: run subcommands on configured repos
 - maintenance: add --schedule option and config
 - maintenance: optionally skip --auto process
 (this branch uses ds/maintenance-part-1 and ds/maintenance-part-2.)

 Parts of "git maintenance" to ease writing crontab entries (and
 other scheduling system configuration) for it.


* ea/blame-use-oideq (2020-09-08) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2020-09-09 at babefe4727)
 + blame.c: replace instance of !oidcmp for oideq

 Code cleanup.

 Will merge to 'master'.


* es/format-patch-interdiff-cleanup (2020-09-08) 3 commits
 - format-patch: use 'origin' as start of current-series-range when known
 - diff-lib: tighten show_interdiff()'s interface
 - diff: move show_interdiff() from its own file to diff-lib

 Code cleanup with a slight behaviour change when "format-patch
 --range-diff=<prev> origin..HEAD" gives a single revision to
 <prev>.

 Will merge to 'next'.


* es/wt-add-detach (2020-09-06) 3 commits
 - git-worktree.txt: discuss branch-based vs. throwaway worktrees
 - worktree: teach `add` to recognize -d as shorthand for --detach
 - git-checkout.txt: document -d short option for --detach

 "git worktree add" learns the "--detach" option to create a new
 worktree without being on a branch.

 Will merge to 'next'.


* hn/refs-ref-log-only-bit (2020-09-08) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2020-09-09 at f729cb2c81)
 + refs: move REF_LOG_ONLY to refs-internal.h

 A bit of API reshuffling to make sure stuff common to all backends
 are not defined only in files backend.

 Will merge to 'master'.


* jc/add-i-use-builtin-experimental (2020-09-08) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2020-09-09 at abcb7515dc)
 + add -i: use the built-in version when feature.experimental is set

 The "add -i/-p" machinery has been written in C but it is not used
 by default yet.  It is made default to those who are participating
 in feature.experimental experiment.

 Will merge to 'master'.


* jc/quote-path-cleanup (2020-09-08) 6 commits
 - quote: turn 'nodq' parameter into a set of flags
 - quote: rename misnamed sq_lookup[] to cq_lookup[]
 - wt-status: consistently quote paths in "status --short" output
 - quote_path: optionally allow quoting a path with SP in it
 - quote_path: give flags parameter to quote_path()
 - quote_path: rename quote_path_relative() to quote_path()

 "git status --short" quoted a path with SP in it when tracked, but
 not those that are untracked, ignored or unmerged.  They are all
 shown quoted consistently.

 Undecided.
 This is more involved than alternatives proposed by brian and Réne
 and I am not sure extra changes to the codebase is a net positive.

 - remote.c: fix handling of %(push:remoteref)

 The "%(push:remoteref)" placeholder in the "--format=" argument of
 "git format-patch" (and friends) only showed what got explicitly
 configured, not what ref at the receiving end would be updated when
 "git push" was used, as it ignored the default behaviour (e.g. update
 the same ref as the source).

 - msvc: copy the correct `.pdb` files in the Makefile target `install`

 The installation procedure learned to optionally omit "git-foo"
 executable files for each 'foo' built-in subcommand, which are only
 required by old timers that still rely on the age old promise that
 prepending "git --exec-path" output to PATH early in their script
 will keep the "git-foo" calls they wrote working.

 The old attempt to remove these executables from the disk failed in
 the 1.6 era; it may be worth attempting again, but I think it is
 worth to keep this topic separate from such a policy change to help
 it graduate early.

 Expecting a reroll to update log message for the last one.

Perhaps this could be a bit more precise by saying something like:

    Code cleanup and make "format-patch --range-diff=<prev>
    <origin>..HEAD" not ignore <origin> when <prev> is a single
    revision.

This needs a tweak to avoid being incorrect. "git worktree add" has
understood --detach from the start. This series only teaches it -d as
an alias for --detach. So, perhaps:

    "git worktree add" learns "-d" as short for "--detach".

Sure.  I didn't realize we can be more specific without spending too
many more bytes.  Let me steal that description.

Those are patches that are part of GSoC project of Shourya Shukla:
'Convert submodule to builtin'.

Those are patches that are part of GSoC project of Hariom Verma:
'Unify ref-filter formats with other --pretty formats'

I'd like to point out that latest series of patches by Abhishek Kumar
which are final part of 'Implement Generation Number v2' is at what I
believe is next to final iteration:

  "[PATCH v3 00/11] [GSoC] Implement Corrected Commit Date"
  https://lore.kernel.org/git/pull.676.v3.git.1597509583.gitgitgadget@gmail.com/T/#u

It is waiting for the decision on *how to implement storing* new
generation number in the commit-graph file: should we store corrected
commit date directly as 64 bit value, or should we store corrected
commit date offset as 32 bit value with overflow handling?

Switching from 64 bits to 32 bits halves the size of the GDAT
(Generation DATa) chunk, but decreases the size of the commit-graph file
by at most 7%.  For large repository, like MS Windows with 3M commits in
2019 it would mean decreasing the size of the commit-graph file by
11.8 MiB (if I calculated it correctly).

Because corrected commit date offsets are not monotone, that is after
value that doesn't fit in 32 bits (in parent) there can be one that does
(in child).  It is extremely unlikely that in real repositories there
would be that large corrections needed, but it can happen in theory, and
therfore we need some way to handle overflow if we choose this option.
And of course we should test that overflow handling works correctly.

So there is tradeoff between complexity and commit-graph file size.

Best,

If you think that not being able to fit into 32 bits is unlikely, then I
don't think it makes sense to store those same values inside of 64 bits,
either.

Of course, that means implementing overflow detection, but that's a
small price to pay for shaving off extra data from the commit-graph
file.

Yes and yes.  What is your intention for highlighting that these two
are GSoC originated projects, by the way?  

These entries in the What's cooking report will eventually be part
of the Release Notes, it is tempting to mention it there for
publicity of the GSoC program (and I happen to work for OSPO that
runs the program).

But at the same time, it becomes part of the published history
(i.e. commit log for the merge commits) and over there, I am not
sure if we want to mention GSoC---who the changes came from and in
what context is much less important than what the actual changes are
while reading the history of the project, trying to understand the
current state of the code [*1*].

Yup, I've been watching from the sideline and appreciate that you've
given the author quite a lot of help to make the series into a good
shape.

My gut feeling is that overflow handling needs there whether the
field is 32-bit or 64-bit.

Thanks.

    experienced contributors and want to focus more carefully while
    bisecting the history or something like that, that is.

It was to compare the final status (merged vs not merged) of all Git's
GSoC 2020 projects... in a bit clumsy way, I admit.

Not if the size on-disk is the same as the size in memory:
timestamp_t is usually 64 bit (and even unsigned 64 bit epoch
would be enough - its range is over twenty times the present
age of the universe per direction).

Yes, and "corrected commit dates" is about accommodating commits
with absurd out-of-sync timestamp mixed in a history with commits
with correct timestamp, right?  What happens if the absurd timestamp
is near the limit of the range?  You do not have to live through the
end of the universe---you only have to create a commit object that
records such a timestamp, no?

I completely agree with Junio's sentiment here. The overflow handling
needs to exist no matter what, but let's remember what's common and what
isn't.

Since it's not common to be towards the end of even just the 32-bit
range, let's "optimize" for that and store the fields as 32 bits wide.


Thanks,
Taylor

Well, as Git stores dates using timestamp_t type, it wouldn't
be able to handle such commit dates anyway. Also, commit-graph
format has only 34 bits reserved for storing commit dates anyway
(32 + 2 bits, with 30 bits of the other byte used for topological
levels aka generation number v1).

As parse_timestamp is strtoumax, having textual representation
of timestamp not fit in 64 bits results in a range error (errno,
which we do not check, is set to ERANGE) and UINTMAX_MAX
is returned.

Thanks.  I realize I wasn't clear but that is what I meant.  If we
need to deal with overflowing situation sensibly anyway, there may
not be much advantage in using 64-bit until year 2038.

Since this thread is active again, I guess I'll nudge this a bit. The
es/wt-add-detach topic still seems to need the above tweak to prevent
it from being inaccurate[1]. (At least I don't see the updated merge
message in 'seen' yet.) Thanks.
