I come, hat in hand, with a bug-fix for a bug that I wrote. I just happened
to discover this issue while playing around with turning the commit-graph on
by default and stumbled into this warning.

Please see the commit message for full details, but putting octopus merges
in a tip commit-graph file in the incremental format [1] would cause the
file to not load because Git thinks the base commit-graphs do not have the
right hashes.

It is very likely that a more careful patch would allow this warning to
become an error during git commit-graph verify, but I wanted to minimize the
change for this quick bug fix.

Thanks, -Stolee

From: Derrick Stolee <dstolee@microsoft.com>

In 1771be90 "commit-graph: merge commit-graph chains" (2019-06-18),
the method sort_and_scan_merged_commits() was added to merge the
commit lists of two commit-graph files in the incremental format.
Unfortunately, there was an off-by-one error in that method around
incrementing num_extra_edges, which leads to an incorrect offset
for the base graph chunk.

When we store an octopus merge in the commit-graph file, we store
the first parent in the normal place, but use the second parent
position to point into the "extra edges" chunk where the remaining
parents exist. This means we should be adding "num_parents - 1"
edges to this list, not "num_parents - 2". That is the basic error.

The reason this was not caught in the test suite is more subtle.
In 5324-split-commit-graph.sh, we test creating an octopus merge
and adding it to the tip of a commit-graph chain, then verify the
result. This _should_ have caught the problem, except that when
we load the commit-graph files we were overly careful to not fail
when the commit-graph chain does not match. This care was on
purpose to avoid race conditions as one process reads the chain
and another process modifies it. In such a case, the reading
process outputs the following message to stderr:

	warning: commit-graph chain does not match

These warnings are output in the test suite, but ignored. By
checking the stderr of `git commit-graph verify` to include
the expected progress output, it will now catch this error.

There should be a better way to check this than relying on the number
of progress lines, e.g. 'git commit-graph verify' could print
something specific, like "Verified 3 commit-graph files, all OK", to
its standard output, and the test should check only that.  Or check
only that there is no warning on standard error.

On one hand, see the recent commits 077b979891 (t3404: make the
'rebase.missingCommitsCheck=ignore' test more focused, 2019-06-24) and
bb431c3dad (t3420: remove progress lines before comparing output,
2019-07-04), where we started to exclude the progress output from
verification in tests like this that are not specifically about
progress output.

On the other hand, one of my fun side-projects is to run some
semi-automated and souped-up CI builds of currently cooking topics,
which include a custom GETTEXT_POISON mode [1], where the poisoned
translated progress output in this new test looks like this [2]:

  V.e.r.i.f.y.i.n.g. .c.o.m.m.i.t.s. .i.n. .c.o.m.m.i.t. .g.r.a.p.h.: 100% (1/1),  d.o.n.e..
  V.e.r.i.f.y.i.n.g. .c.o.m.m.i.t.s. .i.n. .c.o.m.m.i.t. .g.r.a.p.h.: 100% (5/5),  d.o.n.e..

    100% (12/12),  d.o.n.e..

So this makes the progress lines almost twice as long, and as the last
commit-graph file contains double-digit commits, the length of the
progress line just happens to exceed the width of a 80 character
terminal, and gets line wrapped.  This throws off the line count
check, as there are now 4 lines on standard error instead of the
expected 3.

Thanks for pointing out that the poison runs can change the number of lines.
My intention was to ensure "we got the amount of output we expected" but it
is enough to only use test_i18ngrep to check that no warnings occurred.

Thanks,

Hm, I'm afraid I was not clear enough, so let me clarify.

A "regular" GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON=1 test run does not change the
number of lines.  After it replaces the translated string with the '#
GETTEXT POISON #' magic, the progress output will look like this:

  # GETTEXT POISON #:  41% (5/12)

This will never grow long enough to trigger a line break.

It's just one of my fun experiments [1] that makes translated strings
twice as long, and thus triggers that line break.
