Subject: What's cooking in git.git (Oct 2019, #03; Fri, 11)
Date: Fri, 11 Oct 2019 16:35:35 +0900
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Here are the topics that have been cooking.  Commits prefixed with
'-' are only in '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.

We may want to merge down fixes accumulated on the 'master' front
to 'maint', to prepare for v2.23.1 soonish.  I'll look into it over
the weekend.

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

[Graduated to "master"]

* js/diff-rename-force-stable-sort (2019-10-02) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-10-04 at e02d882510)
 + diffcore_rename(): use a stable sort
 + Move git_sort(), a stable sort, into into libgit.a

 The rename detection logic sorts a list of rename source candidates
 by similarity to pick the best candidate, which means that a tie
 between sources with the same similarity is broken by the original
 location in the original candidate list (which is sorted by path).
 Force the sorting by similarity done with a stable sort, which is
 not promised by system supplied qsort(3), to ensure consistent
 results across platforms.

* js/mingw-spawn-with-spaces-in-path (2019-10-02) 1 commit

 Test fix.

* js/range-diff-noprefix (2019-10-03) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-10-04 at 56cf767bdb)
 + range-diff: internally force `diff.noprefix=true`

 "git range-diff" segfaulted when diff.noprefix configuration was
 used, as it blindly expected the patch it internally generates to
 have the standard a/ and b/ prefixes.  The command now forces the
 internal patch to be built without any prefix, not to be affected
 by any end-user configuration.

* js/stash-apply-in-secondary-worktree (2019-10-06) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-10-07 at b3474c9c3d)

 to access the worktree correctly, which has been corrected.

  (merged to 'next' on 2019-10-07 at 00cf8fe076)

 + sequencer: simplify root commit creation
 + rebase -i: check for updated todo after squash and reword
 + rebase -i: always update HEAD before rewording
 (this branch is used by ra/rebase-i-more-options.)

 "git rebase -i" showed a wrong HEAD while "reword" open the editor.

  (merged to 'next' on 2019-10-07 at 9d0e27b5c3)

 The code to skip "UTF" and "UTF-" prefix, when computing an advice
 message, did not work correctly when the prefix was "UTF", which
 has been fixed.

  (merged to 'next' on 2019-10-04 at c1c619f7c4)
 + git-svn: trim leading and trailing whitespaces in author name

 The author names taken from SVN repositories may have extra leading
 or trailing whitespaces, which are now munged away.

[New Topics]

* ds/sparse-cone (2019-10-08) 17 commits
 - sparse-checkout: cone mode should not interact with .gitignore

 Reroll with a redesign with less emphasis on "subject" coming?

 A bit too alarming warning given when unknown index extensions

 Expecting a reroll.

 - grep: move driver pre-load out of critical section
 - grep: re-enable threads in non-worktree case
 - grep: protect packed_git [re-]initialization

 - grep: fix race conditions on userdiff calls

 Traditionally, we avoided threaded grep while searching in objects
 (as opposed to files in the working tree) as accesses to the object
 layer is not thread-safe.  This limitation is getting lifted.

 . Add a function to determine unique prefixes for a list of strings
 . built-in add -i: implement the main loop
 . built-in add -i: color the header in the `status` command
 . built-in add -i: refresh the index before running `status`
 . built-in add -i: implement the `status` command
 . diff: export diffstat interface
 . Start to implement a built-in version of `git add --interactive`

 The beginning of rewriting "git add -i" in C.

 On hold, waiting for tg/stash-refresh-index to work well with this.

 + merge-recursive: don't force external callers to do our logging
 + merge-recursive: remove useless parameter in merge_trees()
 + merge-recursive: exit early if index != head
 + Ensure index matches head before invoking merge machinery, round N
 + merge-recursive: remove another implicit dependency on the_repository
 + merge-recursive: future-proof update_file_flags() against memory leaks
 + merge-recursive: introduce an enum for detect_directory_renames values

 The merge-recursive machiery is one of the most complex parts of
 the system that accumulated cruft over time.  This large series
 cleans up the implementation quite a bit.

 Will merge to 'master'.

* vn/reset-deleted-ita (2019-07-26) 1 commit
 - reset: unstage empty deleted ita files

 "git reset HEAD [<pathspec>]" did not reset an empty file that was
 added with the intent-to-add bit.

 Expecting a reroll.

* ra/rebase-i-more-options (2019-09-09) 6 commits
 - rebase: add --reset-author-date
 - rebase -i: support --ignore-date
 - sequencer: rename amend_author to author_to_rename
 - rebase -i: support --committer-date-is-author-date
 - sequencer: allow callers of read_author_script() to ignore fields
 - rebase -i: add --ignore-whitespace flag

 "git rebase -i" learned a few options that are known by "git
 rebase" proper.

 Needs to consider existing GIT_COMMITTER_DATE environment, etc.

* jc/format-patch-noclobber (2019-02-22) 1 commit
 - format-patch: --no-clobber refrains from overwriting output files

 "git format-patch" used to overwrite an existing patch/cover-letter
 file.  A new "--no-clobber" option stops it.

 Will discard.


* dl/remote-save-to-push (2018-12-11) 1 commit
 . remote: add --save-to-push option to git remote set-url

 "git remote set-url" learned a new option that moves existing value
 of the URL field to pushURL field of the remote before replacing
 the URL field with a new value.

 Anybody who wants to champion this topic?
 I am personally not yet quite convinced if this is worth pursuing.

* js/trace2-json-schema (2019-07-25) 3 commits
 . ci: run trace2 schema validation in the CI suite
 . trace2: add a schema validator for trace2 events
 . trace2: add a JSON schema for trace2 events

 The JSON output produced by "trace2" subsystem now has JSON schema
 defined on it, to allow us validate the output and catch deviation.

 Abandoned, at least for now.

* pd/fetch-jobs (2019-08-13) 5 commits
 . fetch: make --jobs control submodules and remotes
 . fetch: add the --submodule-fetch-jobs option
 . fetch: add the config key
 . fetch: add the "--fetch-jobs" option
 . fetch: rename max_children to max_children_for_submodules

 "git fetch --jobs" is getting taught to also run fetch jobs in
 parallel when fetching from multiple remote repositories.

* js/honor-cflags-in-hdr-check (2019-08-26) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-09-09 at fcd9ee9f1b)
 + hdr-check: make it work on Windows

 Build fix to make sure hdr-check is run with the same preprocessor
 macros predefined by the $(MAKE) procedure.

 Superseded by dl/honor-cflags-in-hdr-check series.
