Hi!

I don't know if this is a software or documentation bug.

man git-stash says about --keep-index:
     If the --keep-index option is used, all changes already added to
     the index are left intact.

If a file is deleted and this deletion is in the index a following
     $ git stash push --keep-index
keeps this deletion in the index but not in the working-tree.

If a file is changed and this change is in the index a following
     $ git stash push --keep-index
keeps this change in the index and also in the working-tree.

This is inconsistent.

------------- deletion -------------
$ git status
On branch master
Changes to be committed:
   (use "git reset HEAD <file>..." to unstage)

         deleted:    test-file

$ git stash push --keep-index
Saved working directory and index state WIP on master: a3171f887b new test-file
$ git status
On branch master
Changes to be committed:
   (use "git reset HEAD <file>..." to unstage)

         deleted:    test-file

Untracked files:
   (use "git add <file>..." to include in what will be committed)

         test-file

------------- change -------------
$ git status
On branch master
Your branch is up to date with 'origin/master'.

Changes to be committed:
   (use "git reset HEAD <file>..." to unstage)

         modified:   test-file

$ git stash push --keep-index
Saved working directory and index state WIP on master: a3171f887b new test-file
$ git status
On branch master
Your branch is up to date with 'origin/master'.

Changes to be committed:
   (use "git reset HEAD <file>..." to unstage)

         modified:   test-file

--------------------------

My expectation was that the deletion would be preserved within the
working-tree because this is a change added to the index and should be
left intact.

Best regards
Martin Nicolay

Thanks for your report.  This has come up before in
https://public-inbox.org/git/1555437849815.60450@rasenplanscher.info/,
which I first thought was expected behaviour, but that was just me
misunderstanding the --keep-index option.  So I belive this is indeed
a bug.

Luckily I had some more time to actually look at this this time
around, so below is a potential fix.

This comes with a small caveat of overwriting untracked files if they
have been removed from the index, and replaced with a file that has
not been added yet.  I think that's okay as that happens in other
places as well in stash, but wanted to point it out anyway.

Subject: [PATCH] stash: fix handling removed files with --keep-index

git stash push --keep-index is supposed to keep all changes that have
been added to the index, both in the index and on disk.

Currently this doesn't behave correctly when a file is removed from
the index.  Instead of keeping it deleted on disk, --keep-index
currently restores the file.

Fix that behaviour by using 'git restore' which can faithfully restore
the index and working tree.  This also simplifies the code.

Note that this will overwrite untracked files if the untracked file
has the same name as a file that has been deleted in the index.

Hmph.  I would have preferred to see we stayed away from 'restore'
(and used 'checkout' instead, if you must use a Porcelain command),
so that the "fix" can go to maintenance tracks, if distro packagers
choose to backport it.

Isn't the machinery for "git status" (in wt-status.c) mature enough
to allow us to learn what got changed all in-core, without spawning
an external process these days, though?

Fair enough.  I thought this wouldn't even go to 'maint', since the
bug exists since a while, so 'git restore' would be fine, but didn't
think of distro packagers.  I'm happy to use 'checkout' here instead.

Maybe, I'm not all that familar with that machinery.  My longer term
hope was actually to libify the checkout machinery, and to use that
here and use that to do all this (and the 'add', 'diff-index' and
'apply' dance above) in core.  But maybe it's worth looking at the
"git status" machinery for that as well?

I probably won't have enough time to do that in the next few weeks
though, so my preference would be to just use checkout for this (I'll
send an updated patch) to fix the bug in the next release.  As we're
already spawning two external processes and would replace that with
just spawning one it wouldn't make anything worse at least.

Then we can try to do this all in-core at some point later, which I
think is a bit more work, and probably wouldn't be ready for the next
release (at least I won't have time to work on it).

git stash push --keep-index is supposed to keep all changes that have
been added to the index, both in the index and on disk.

Currently this doesn't behave correctly when a file is removed from
the index.  Instead of keeping it deleted on disk, --keep-index
currently restores the file.

Fix that behaviour by using 'git checkout' in no-overlay mode which
can faithfully restore the index and working tree.  This also
simplifies the code.

Note that this will overwrite untracked files if the untracked file
has the same name as a file that has been deleted in the index.

This would be the version using 'git checkout' instead of 'git
restore'.  Still not doing everything in-core though, as mentioned in
the previous email.

As long as the "--no-overlay" option is used, it is not much better.
Backporting the fix goes only back to 2.22 and no earlier.
