Based on the discussion of the previous patches, we concluded that
changing the default will require a transitional period.

As such, I have introduced a deprecation warning that is printed when
the log builtin commands are used.

Thanks to Junio and everyone else for providing feedback on how to
proceed.

Based on discussions around changing the log.mailmap default to being
enabled, it was decided that a transitional period is required.

Accordingly, we announce this transitional period with a warning
message.

The log.mailmap setting may be explicitly set to false, which disables
the mailmap feature implicity. In practice, doing so is equivalent to
always using the previously undocumented --no-use-mailmap option on the
command line.

Accordingly, we document both the existence of --no-use-mailmap as
well as briefly discuss the equivalence of it to log.mailmap=False.

... used when the user did not configure and did not give --[no-]use-mailmap
option from the command line, right?  Otherwise the warning would be annoying.

Have you run the test suite before posting?  To me, at least t0203,
t4212, t7006 and t9700 seem to be having trouble with this change,
that may need adjusting.

0203.1 expects that "git show" gives nothing to its standard error
stream.  Perhaps something like this should serve as a good
workaround.

4212.3 is the same way.

4212.4 raises an interesting question.  It wants to see the output
of this command:

	git log --format="%an+%ae+%ad" broken_email >actual.out 2>actual.err &&

The question is, when the user explicitly asked for the "true"
identity values (not the mapped one via %aN, %aE and their friends),
if --use-mailmap should affect the outcome?

A secondary question is if we should be issuing a warning against
this command line in the first place, if the answer to the above
question is "no" (i.e. --[no-]use-mailmap, and the future default
switch, do not affect the outcome).  There is no point issuing a
warning if the command line is already future-proofed.

7006.43 (among others) expects its "colorful" shell helper function
to be a reliable way to detect if color escape sequence is in use in
the output but the helper only reads the first line and expects it
to always begin with the colored "commit 0c9f6db7183a...", which fails
when an error or a warning message comes first.  I think the best fix
there should be to make the helper more robust, perhaps by borrowing
ideas from test-lib-functions.sh::test_decode_color, i.e. find byte
sequence "\033[m" in there (I think assuming the presence of RESET
sequence alone is sufficient for the purpose of t7006 tests that
wants to see "have we tried to color or emit non-colored output?".

A possible workaround for 9007 would be to set log.mailmap=true in
the set-up step, but there may be a better alternative.

There may be issues with other tests.  I didn't do any exhaustive
vetting.

Thanks.

Yes, the default state is changed to -1, which using the command line
options or explicitly configuring the option would change to either 0
or 1.

I ran parts of the testsuite, but I can go through the whole thing and
will fix the fallout.

I don't think it should.

I will disable the warning if a custom format is specified.

The colorful shell helper function irritates me from time to time with
that sort of thing.  I might look into fixing it, but I think for now
it makes more sense to just defang those tests by killing the warning.

A thought I had was to perhaps use isatty(STDERR_FILENO) to determine
if stderr is attached to a terminal session and only issue the warning
in that case.  What do you think?  It should fix all of these tests.

This seems reasonable.

Thanks wholeheartedly for all of your help so far, I know there are
many git users who will be very happy once all of this work is done
(basically anyone who has changed their name).

I briefly thought that this is tricky enough that we should wait for
other people to chime in before casting the decision in stone.  But
we can continue with what we consider the better variant in the
meantime.

Some of them but it should not affect that one, which is run under
test_terminal, as the whole point of that test helper is to see how
we behave in a terminal ;-)
