Subject: [PATCH v2] pull: only pass '--recurse-submodules' to subcommands
Date: Tue, 10 May 2022 19:25:47 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <pull.1262.v2.git.git.1652210747614.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.1262.git.git.1652138854255.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

From: Glen Choo <chooglen@google.com>

Fix a bug in "git pull" where `submodule.recurse` is preferred over
`fetch.recurseSubmodules` when performing a fetch
(Documentation/config/fetch.txt says that `fetch.recurseSubmodules`
should be preferred.). Do this by passing the value of the
"--recurse-submodules" CLI option to the underlying fetch, instead of
passing a value that combines the CLI option and config variables.

In other words, this bug occurred because builtin/pull.c is conflating
two similar-sounding, but different concepts:

- Whether "git pull" itself should care about submodules e.g. whether it
  should update the submodule worktrees after performing a merge.
- The value of "--recurse-submodules" to pass to the underlying "git
  fetch".

Thus, when `submodule.recurse` is set, the underlying "git fetch" gets
invoked with "--recurse-submodules[=value]", overriding the value of
`fetch.recurseSubmodules`.

An alternative (and more obvious) approach to fix the bug would be to
teach "git pull" to understand `fetch.recurseSubmodules`, but the
proposed solution works better because:

- We don't maintain two identical config-parsing implementions in "git
  pull" and "git fetch".
- It works better with other commands invoked by "git pull" e.g. "git
  merge" won't accidentally respect `fetch.recurseSubmodules`.

    pull: only pass '--recurse-submodules' to subcommands
    
    Thanks for the debugging help :)
    
    Changes since v1:
    
     * add a test that actually tests the precedence of the config values
       * I've kept the previous test; it has always worked, but it still
         seems like a useful smoke test
     * reworded the commit message slightly
