What's cooking in git.git (Apr 2019, #01; Thu, 4)
--------------------------------------------------

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.

So, ... while I was offline for a week, there seems to have been
quite a lot of activities around here.  Hopefully everybody had fun
in the meantime ;-) 

I think I'm mostly caught up by now (except for an inevitable "fell
thru the cracks" topic or three) and here is what I collected so
far, thinking that they may be worth looking at.  I haven't given
any deep thought to many topics yet, so the topic description may be
either totally lacking or completely incorrect, and their assessment
may be stale and not reflect the already-reached list concensus.
As always, help in updating them would be grately appreciated.

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

* ab/makefile-help-devs-more (2019-02-24) 6 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-03-11 at 898f5f44bc)
 + Makefile: allow for combining DEVELOPER=1 and CFLAGS="..."
 + Makefile: move the setting of *FLAGS closer to "include"
 + Makefile: Move *_LIBS assignment into its own section
 + Makefile: add/remove comments at top and tweak whitespace
 + Makefile: move "strip" assignment down from flags
 + Makefile: remove an out-of-date comment

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2019-03-07

 CFLAGS now can be tweaked when invoking Make while using
 DEVELOPER=YesPlease; this did not work well before.


* br/commit-tree-parseopt (2019-03-08) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-03-11 at e1228ef04f)
 + commit-tree: utilize parse-options api

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2019-03-08

 The command line parser of "git commit-tree" has been rewritten to
 use the parse-options API.


* jk/bisect-final-output (2019-03-01) 3 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-03-11 at dea599eb04)
 + bisect: make diff-tree output prettier
 + bisect: fix internal diff-tree config loading
 + bisect: use string arguments to feed internal diff-tree

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2019-03-07

 The final report from "git bisect" used to show the suspected
 culprit using a raw "diff-tree", with which there is no output for
 a merge commit.  This has been updated to use a more modern and
 human readable output that still is concise enough.


* jk/config-type-color-ends-with-lf (2019-03-07) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-03-11 at 810b269d1a)
 + config: document --type=color output is a complete line

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2019-03-07

 "git config --type=color ..." is meant to replace "git config --get-color"
 but there is a slight difference that wasn't documented, which is
 now fixed.


* jk/fsck-doc (2019-03-05) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-03-11 at 5cd610f73e)
 + fsck: always compute USED flags for unreachable objects
 + doc/fsck: clarify --connectivity-only behavior

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2019-03-07

 "git fsck --connectivity-only" omits computation necessary to sift
 the objects that are not reachable from any of the refs into
 unreachable and dangling.  This is now enabled when dangling
 objects are requested (which is done by default, but can be
 overridden with the "--no-dangling" option).


* jk/no-sigpipe-during-network-transport (2019-03-05) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-03-11 at 25900acd0d)
 + fetch: ignore SIGPIPE during network operation
 + fetch: avoid calling write_or_die()

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2019-03-07

 On platforms where "git fetch" is killed with SIGPIPE (e.g. OSX),
 the upload-pack that runs on the other end that hangs up after
 detecting an error could cause "git fetch" to die with a signal,
 which led to a flakey test.  "git fetch" now ignores SIGPIPE during
 the network portion of its operation (this is not a problem as we
 check the return status from our write(2)s).


* jk/virtual-objects-do-exist (2019-03-05) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-03-11 at 748c79a1f0)
 + rev-list: allow cached objects in existence check

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2019-03-07

 A recent update broke "is this object available to us?" check for
 well-known objects like an empty tree (which should yield "yes",
 even when there is no on-disk object for an empty tree), which has
 been corrected.


* js/rebase-orig-head-fix (2019-03-04) 4 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-03-11 at 4b1b19d391)
 + built-in rebase: set ORIG_HEAD just once, before the rebase
 + built-in rebase: demonstrate that ORIG_HEAD is not set correctly
 + built-in rebase: use the correct reflog when switching branches
 + built-in rebase: no need to check out `onto` twice

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2019-03-07

 "git rebase" that was reimplemented in C did not set ORIG_HEAD
 correctly, which has been corrected.


* js/stress-test-ui-tweak (2019-03-04) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-03-11 at 223afded1c)
 + tests: introduce --stress-jobs=<N>
 + tests: let --stress-limit=<N> imply --stress

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2019-03-07

 Dev support.


* ma/clear-repository-format (2019-03-01) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-03-11 at f3db1c278f)
 + setup: fix memory leaks with `struct repository_format`
 + setup: free old value before setting `work_tree`

 Originally merged to 'next' on 2019-03-07

 The setup code has been cleaned up to avoid leaks around the
 repository_format structure.

  (merged to 'next' on 2019-03-20 at ded442ed02)
 + worktree: fix worktree add race

 "git worktree add" used to do a "find an available name with stat

 "checking out paths out of the index and/or a tree-ish to work on
 advancing the current history" out of the single "git checkout"
 command.

* cc/replace-graft-peel-tags (2019-04-01) 4 commits
 - replace: fix --graft when passing a tag first
 - replace: fix --graft when passing a tag as parent
 - t6050: redirect expected error output to a file
 - t6050: use test_line_count instead of wc -l

 When given a tag that points at a commit-ish, "git replace --graft"
 failed to peel the tag before writing a replace ref, which did not
 make sense because the old graft mechanism the feature wants to
 mimick only allowed to replace one commit object with another.
 This has been fixed.

 The title of the top two commits are fairly useless and does not
 say how the issue was fixed, but the fix is to peel the given tag
 ourselves down to the underlying commit object.

* dk/blame-keep-origin-blob (2019-04-03) 1 commit

 Will merge to 'next'.


* dl/forbid-tagging-a-tag (2019-04-03) 3 commits
 - SQUASH???
 - tag: prevent nested tags
 - tag: fix formatting

 "git tag $newtag $obj", when $obj is another tag, now aborts,
 requiring a new --allow-nested-tag option, even though an
 invocation with $obj that is a blob or a tree is silently allowed,
 which does not make much sense.

 - t3431: add rebase --fork-point tests

 "git rebase --keep-base <upstream>" tries to find the original base
 of the topic being rebased and rebase on top of that same base, which
 is useful when running the "git rebase -i" (and its limited variant
 "git rebase -x").

 Polishing of the new trace2 facility continues.  The system-level
 configuration can specify site-wide trace2 settings (which would be
 loved by big-brother types ;-).

 Getting closer but still being discussed.

* js/spell-out-options-in-tests (2019-04-02) 8 commits
 - tests: disallow the use of abbreviated options (by default)

 - tests (status): spell out the `--find-renames` option in full
 - tests (push): do not abbreviate the `--follow-tags` option
 - t5531: avoid using an abbreviated option
 - t7810: do not abbreviate `--no-exclude-standard` nor `--invert-match`
 - tests (rebase): spell out the `--force-rebase` option
 - tests (rebase): spell out the `--keep-empty` option

 The tests have been updated not to rely on the abbreviated option
 names the parse-options API offers, to protect us from an
 abbreviated form of an option that used to be unique within the
 command getting non-unique when a new option that share the same
 prefix is added.

 - dir: do not traverse repositories with no commits
 - t3009: test that ls-files -o traverses bogus repo
 - t3000: move non-submodule repo test to separate file
 - submodule: refuse to add repository with no commits

 Running "git add" on a repository created inside the current
 repository is an explicit indication that the user wants to add it
 as a submodule, but when the HEAD of the inner repository is on an
 unborn branch, it cannot be added as a submodule.  Worse, the files
 in its working tree can be added as if they are a part of the outer
 repository, which is not what the user wants.  These problems are
 being addressed.

 "git checkout -m <other>" was about carrying the differences

  (merged to 'next' on 2019-03-20 at 92a24b29ed)
 + convert: avoid malloc of original file size

 When the "clean" filter can reduce the size of a huge file in the
 working tree down to a small "token" (a la Git LFS), there is no
 point in allocating a huge scratch area upfront, but the buffer is
 sized based on the original file size.  The convert mechanism now
 allocates very minimum and reallocates as it receives the output
 from the clean filter process.

There was no conclusion from the last thread if I remember correctly
and I kind of gave up on it. If you want to include anyway, should we
go for a more specific attribute (e.g. "clean") and leave "precious"
for later whenever it's better defined?

I'd rather pick between (1) using the final name for the concept we
want to eventually achieve, i.e. "precious", and starting small,
i.e. "initially, only git-clean knows about it", or (2) doing
nothing.  Per-command 'precious-this', 'precious-that' that would be
left as interface wart for years is not a pretty sight I want to
see.

Martin mentioned this in reply to the patch thread¹ but it
looks like it slipped by unnoticed.  There's some extraneous
comments in 28216d13f4 ("ci: stick with Asciidoctor v1.5.8

this hits next.

Missing a "will..." note for this one, the "cf" is just the cover letter

That squash makes sense. Will submit another version with it integrated.

I had the feedback of effectively "why retry if we can just make the SID
unique enough" in
https://public-inbox.org/git/874l7rcqk9.fsf@evledraar.gmail.com/ on
March 25th.

You seemed to think so, but after Jeff Hostetler made the SID more
unique (AFAICT "actually unique" in practice) in the parallel in-flight
jh/trace2-sid-fix
(https://public-inbox.org/git/4352952677a11776a18ec9b6862cf358307cfafd.1553879063.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com/)

I think it's fine to merge js/trace2-to-directory down as it is, but do
you/Josh think that retry logic needs to stay with that sort of SID?

I think we shouldn't squat "precious" in general without seeing where we
want to go with it, which I tried to sum up in
https://public-inbox.org/git/87ftsi68ke.fsf@evledraar.gmail.com/

But aside from that larger discussion, I see no problem with having some
"+clean" or "-clean" attribute with basically Duy's current patch in
nd/precious with the equivalent of "s/precious/clean/". Duy suggested
this in
https://public-inbox.org/git/CACsJy8C377NmLv9edNYjinKAQf-P1y5+Nwhdj3vRkz_E__x43Q@mail.gmail.com/

I see the desire to keep some untracked stuff you know about as
different from what amounts to a workaround for merge/checkout
inadvertently stomping on your checkout and shredding your data, without
(as noted in my upthread summary) us having the full picture of whether
that's even needed as a permanent configurable workaround, or we could
"just" fix that "bug".

But on the subject on the implementation of nd/precious (assuming
s/precious/clean/) I'm concerned that this "I want to keep *.o on
'git-clean'" use-case leaves us with no way to do what you can now do
with:

    git clean -dxff

Now the git-clean documentation promises:

    "Cleans [...] files that are not under version control"

And, for -x:

    "Don’t use the [repository's] ignore rules[...]This allows removing
    all untracked files, including build products"

Except now we have a feature that's ostensibly exactly for this "build
products" use-case, but doesn't yield to the -x option, which we've
documented as being the escape hatch for exactly that sort of thing.

In my mind "clean" has two fundamentally different use-cases. a) I made
this repo and trust its .gitignore file b) I didn't make it/don't trust
it and/or I just want to be guaranteed to get the exact same checkout a
"git clone" would give me.

Now you can do "git clean -dxff" (and if submodules init && ...) for
"b", but the "precious" patch in the current form completely breaks "b"
to satisfy a use-case of "a".

I think we should at the very least have a "-xx" like "-ff" now as an
escape hatch, but more conservatively shouldn't be breaking the
reasonable assumption a user of "-x" could make so far, which is "ignore
repo config, just wipe it all".

I know.  I've already said that we do not want proliferation of
precious-clean precious-merge precious-yet-another-thing.

> ... shouldn't be breaking the reasonable assumption a user of "-x"

Yup.  I think that is reasonable.  To paraphrase (so that you can
tell me that I misunderstood you, if that is the case), if we are
told to honor only what the index knows, deliberately ignoring the
.gitignore file, then we should also ignore .gitattributes that says
which ones are ignored-but-precious, as the "precious" attribute is
a mere implementation detail of what _could_ have been part of the
exclude mechanism (aka ".gitignore") from day one, if we designed
the exclude mechanism to support "ignored and expendable" and
"ignored and precious" from day one.  "clean -x" would certainly
have ignored both kinds.

The former is because I haven't decided and more importantly I
haven't seen enough input on the list to make a decision.

The latter is quite normal.  cf. is literally "here is one of the
things I can look at as a starting point to remind me what this
topic was about and what its current state is", a note left for me.
It often is "don't forget that somebody raised an issue and I should
not merge to to 'next' yet" but it is not limited to objections.

As I haven't seen enough input on the topic, and I have quite a
backlog after being offline for a wee, pointing at a cover to make
sure I can quickly find out which iteration I happen to have was/is
a logical thing to do.

OK, then I won't squash it myself, but instead queue the updated

I do not speak for Josh, but I think the only two logical choices
are to open with (O_CREAT|O_EXCL) and

 (1) fallback with .%d suffix, making it clear that we are not
     willing to lose log files even when SID generation is botched; or

 (2) die/BUG when it fails, making it clear that we do rely on the
     guanateed uniqueness of SID.

A distant third may be to warn when open with O_CREAT|O_EXCL fails,
but I am not sure what its value would be to do so---especially if
we trust in the "actually unique in practice".  Between (1) and (2),
I have a slight preference to (1) over (2), as that is much easier
to explain.

Those who want to have a "fixed width" thing could just ignore the
ones with suffix---as long as the "actually unique in practice"
claim holds, doing so will not lose any non-negligible amount of
information anyway.

I prefer (1) as well, although I would be happy to re-write this if the
list consensus goes the other way.

A new attribute "precious" is added to indicate that certain files
have valuable content and should not be easily discarded even if they
are ignored or untracked.

So far there are one part of Git that are made aware of precious files:
"git clean" will leave precious files alone if --keep-precious is
specified.

 Here's the replacement patch that keeps "git clean" behavior the same
 as before and only checks 'precious' attribute when --keep-precous is
 specified.

OK.  So this is even gentler introduction, which we could turn into
the default once more commands start honoring the attribute and
wider adoption proves that it is a good feature, while allowing us a
room to back out by keeping it an optional feature and eventually
deprecate and remove if the experiment did not pan out.

When the second thing that cares about the attribute comes along,
the mention of 'git clean' here will become the first item in a
bullet list, while the second and subsequent ones are listed next to
it.  It may not be bad to start that enumerated list of count 1 from
the get-go, but for now this will do.

An attribute is given to something that can be tracked, and a
directory would not get an attribute, because Git does not track
directories (there is a reason why skip_precious_file() takes
&the_index that is passed down the callchain to git_check_attr()).

Triggering this logic before excluding S_ISDIR(st.st_mode) feels
iffy.

But let's assume that being able to say "this directory and anything
(recursively) inside are precious" is a good idea and read on.

If the checking with skip_precious() before S_ISDIR() was
intentional (I cannot quite tell if it is), then this should also
have a pattern that matches a directory and mark it as precious.

On the other hand, if it was merely a thinko and the change does not
intend to allow attaching attributes to directories, then this test
is probably OK as-is.  We also _could_ have a pattern that matches a
directory and attempt to make it precious and then make sure the
directory goes away (i.e. any attribute, including 'precious', on
the directory was meaningless).

OK, so this is exactly the same command as above, but without the
"--keep-precious" option.  It is good to test both positive and
negative.

Nit: The blank line before 'test_done' got lost.

Hm... we do allow to set attributes on directories even though we
don't track them. I was under the impression that an attribute set on
a directory will be propagated to all files inside anyway, so this is
more of an (mis?-)optimization.

But gitattributes.txt explicitly says that it's wrong. One would need
to do "path/** precious" to achieve the same thing.

So yeah maybe doing this before S_ISDIR() is wrong. The definition of
`precious` also only says "... is set on _files_". Maybe best to
ignore attributes on directories? At least it looks like that's how
all other attributes do.

I could be persuaded in the other direction if there are widespread
uses (or misuses---but once it gets widespread in the wild and turns
out to be useful, it ceases to be misuses and becomes a feature) of
giving an attribute to a directory that affects the treatment of
that directory *itself*, but if there is none, I'd prefer to keep
the attribute "what's tracked only".

Whether it is a good idea to give an attribute to a directory to
affect the treatement of the directory *itself* (eh, rather,
especially if it were a good idea), I'd consider it a misuse as a
short-hand for giving all paths within it the same attribute, given
"path/**" is available, as that would make it impossible to say "I'd
want to affect this directory, but not any of the directories or
files in it".

And if that is not clear in the current documentation set that faces
our developers, perhaps we should make it so.

Thanks.

Cool to have the expected interaction with -x. Thanks.

For e.g. git-status(1) we just say:

    git status [<options>...] [--] [<pathspec>...]

And for git-add(1) we do:

     git add [--verbose | -v] <very long exhaustive list of options
                              spanning 4 lines omitted>


Seems we should do one or the other here, i.e. either just add
--keep-precious to the list, or leave it at just:

    git clean [<options>...] [--] [<pathspec>...]

As noted upthread I think it's better to start with "clean" and
"--keep-noclean", we can always alias it to "precious" later without
squatting on that more general term when we (IMO) don't have the full
picture yet & know if we even want that...

But anyway, with that out of the way and assuming this is kept-as is
seems we could document this better if we're going to keep "precious",
e.g. maybe:

    This attribute is set on files to indicate that they're important
    while not being tracked. This attribute is experimental and subject
    to future change as more commands are changed to support it.

    Now it's only supported by linkgit:git-clean[1] which'll skip
    cleaning files marked ith `precious` when given the
    `--keep-precious` option. This can be useful in combination with
    linkgit:gitignore[5] to e.g. mark `*.o` build assets as both ignored
    and precious.

I.e. say it's still early days, that it's "experimental" (not insisting
on that phrasing, but somehow signaling to users that if they set this
now it may do new/unexpected things in the future), and briefly describe
how it works with "clean" and what the main intended use-case is.

AFAICT this is the first attribute intended purely to be set on files
that aren't tracked. I wonder if we should test for setting it on files
that are tracked, and whether we should e.g. warn about that? Maybe not,
but just raising it since I don't think it was discussed already...

I've had enough. Please drop this nd/precious. I'm not updating it anymore.
