Subject: [PATCH 0/5] parse_branchname_arg(): make code easier to understand
Date: Thu, 28 Nov 2019 19:32:13 +0000
Message-ID: <pull.479.git.1574969538.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)

My bigger goal is to complete my --pathspec-from-file series of patches.

For this, I needed to evaluate whether parse_branchname_arg() heuristics
needs any changes when pathspec is passed, but NOT in args.

I found it surprisingly hard to reason about the code in this function. This
mostly happens due to "obfuscated" variables, where they have a clear name
and a different actual meaning. Ultimately, it was hard to mentally expand
them to true meaning AND see all possible combinations of branches at once.

I have split this refactoring in 4 patches, so that diffs are not too big in
every single patch.

To my understanding, there should be no changes in git's behavior, except
for a couple better die() messages.

Alexandr Miloslavskiy (5):
  parse_branchname_arg(): fix dash_dash_pos, drop argcount
  parse_branchname_arg(): introduce expect_commit_only
  parse_branchname_arg(): update code comments
  parse_branchname_arg(): refactor the decision making
  t2024: cover more cases
