Subject: [PATCH v3] fetch: optionally allow disabling FETCH_HEAD update
Date: Wed, 12 Aug 2020 21:37:25 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <xmqqh7t740vu.fsf_-_@gitster.c.googlers.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <xmqqo8nf4dkb.fsf@gitster.c.googlers.com> (Junio C. Hamano's message of "Wed, 12 Aug 2020 17:03:32 -0700")

If you run fetch but record the result in remote-tracking branches,
and either if you do nothing with the fetched refs (e.g. you are
merely mirroring) or if you always work from the remote-tracking
refs (e.g. you fetch and then merge origin/branchname separately),
you can get away with having no FETCH_HEAD at all.

Teach "git fetch" a command line option "--[no-]write-fetch-head".
The default is to write FETCH_HEAD, and the option is primarily
meant to be used with the "--no-" prefix to override this default,
because there is no matching fetch.writeFetchHEAD configuration
variable to flip the default to off (in which case, the positive
form may become necessary to defeat it).

Note that under "--dry-run" mode, FETCH_HEAD is never written;
otherwise you'd see list of objects in the file that you do not
actually have.  Passing `--write-fetch-head` does not force `git
fetch` to write the file.

 * So, it becomes much smaller by punting the whole configuration
   thing, as we do not need the extra code for config parsing and
   there is no need for code to override the user configuration when
   driving "git fetch" from "git pull".
