Subject: What's cooking in git.git (Nov 2022, #03; Mon, 14)
Date: Mon, 14 Nov 2022 23:50:11 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <Y3Mag8qG2D3qjlmg@nand.local> (raw)

Here are the topics that have been cooking in my tree.  Commits
prefixed with '+' are in 'next' (being in 'next' is a sign that a
topic is stable enough to be used and are candidate to be in a future
release).  Commits prefixed with '-' are only in 'seen', and aren't
considered "accepted" at all.  A topic without enough support may be
discarded after a long period of no activity.

There are still a large-ish number of topics in 'seen' that are
waiting for review. Otherwise, the remaining topics are graduating at
a reasonable pace, and the queue for 'next' has returned to a normal

Copies of the source code to Git live in many repositories, and the
following is a list of the ones I push into or their mirrors.  Some
repositories have only a subset of branches.

With maint, master, next, seen, todo:

The following mirrors are currently out-of-date while the usual
maintainer is offline.


With all the integration branches and topics broken out:

Even though the preformatted documentation in HTML and man format
are not sources, they are typically published in these repositories
for convenience (replace "htmldocs" with "manpages" for the manual


...but these and the release tarballs below are similarly out-of-date:

* ps/receive-use-only-advertised (2022-11-11) 7 commits
 - receive-pack: only use visible refs for connectivity check
 - rev-parse: add `--exclude-hidden=` option
 - revision: add new parameter to exclude hidden refs
 - revision: introduce struct to handle exclusions
 - revision: move together exclusion-related functions
 - refs: get rid of global list of hidden refs
 - refs: fix memory leak when parsing hideRefs config

 "git receive-pack" used to use all the local refs as the boundary
 for checking connectivity of the data "git push" sent, but now it
 uses only the refs that it advertised to the pusher.  In a
 repository with the .hideRefs configuration, this reduces the
 resource needed to perform the check, and also forces the pusher to
 prove they have all objects that are necessary to complete the
 history on top of only the history available to them.

 Expecting a (final?) reroll.
