* What's cooking in git.git (Aug 2019, #06; Fri, 23)

  To: git

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.

The tip of 'next' has been rewound.  A handful of topics that have
been in the stalled state need to be woken up, now the release is
over (or they can be dropped without prejudice, just to unclutter
the tree).  As I said in an earlier message somewhere, I'd prefer to
see the PCRE/JIT topics sorted out soonish.  Ævar?  Carlo?

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

* mt/grep-submodules-working-tree (2019-07-30) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-08-02 at e1a46a195f)
 + grep: fix worktree case in submodules

 "git grep --recurse-submodules" that looks at the working tree
 files looked at the contents in the index in submodules, instead of
 files in the working tree.

* rs/nedalloc-fixlets (2019-08-07) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-08-09 at 0e9286fb70)

  (merged to 'next' on 2019-08-09 at 6bd6c85fbb)
 + pack-refs: always refresh after taking the lock file

 "git pack-refs" can lose refs that are created while running, which
 is getting corrected.
 Performance impact unclear but let's let correctness take priority
 for now.

 + restore: add test for deleted ita files
 + checkout.c: unstage empty deleted ita files

 "git checkout" and "git restore" to re-populate the index from a
 tree-ish (typically HEAD) did not work correctly for a path that
 was removed and then added again with the intent-to-add bit, when
 the corresponding working tree file was empty.  This has been

 . 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.

 The CI integration may be a bit too heavy-handed.

* jn/unknown-index-extensions (2018-11-21) 2 commits
 - index: offer advice for unknown index extensions
 - index: do not warn about unrecognized extensions

 A bit too alarming warning given when unknown index extensions
 exist is getting revamped.

 Expecting a reroll.

* jc/format-patch-delay-message-id (2019-04-05) 1 commit
 - format-patch: move message-id and related headers to the end

 The location "git format-patch --thread" adds the Message-Id:
 header in the series of header fields has been moved down, which
 may help working around a suspected bug in GMail MSA, reported at

 Waiting for feedback to see if it truly helps.
 Needs tests.

 the pack contents to be instead taken from elsewhere (aka CDN).

* js/protocol-advertise-multi (2018-12-28) 1 commit
 - protocol: advertise multiple supported versions

 The transport layer has been updated so that the protocol version
 used can be negotiated between the parties, by the initiator
 listing the protocol versions it is willing to talk, and the other
 side choosing from one of them.

 Expecting a reroll.

* mk/use-size-t-in-zlib (2018-10-15) 1 commit
 - zlib.c: use size_t for size

 The wrapper to call into zlib followed our long tradition to use
 "unsigned long" for sizes of regions in memory, which have been
 updated to use "size_t".

* 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.


* cb/curl-use-xmalloc (2019-08-15) 1 commit
 - http: use xmalloc with cURL
 (this branch uses jk/drop-release-pack-memory.)

 Tell cURL library to use the same malloc() implementation, with the
 xmalloc() wrapper, as the rest of the system, for consistency.

* sg/diff-indent-heuristic-non-experimental (2019-08-15) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-08-23 at faab5e2a1e)
 + diff: 'diff.indentHeuristic' is no longer experimental

 We promoted the "indent heuristics" that decides where to split
 diff hunks from experimental to the default a few years ago, but
 some stale documentation still marked it as experimental, which has
 been corrected.

 - merge-recursive: be consistent with assert

 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.

* jk/drop-release-pack-memory (2019-08-13) 1 commit
 - packfile: drop release_pack_memory()
 (this branch is used by cb/curl-use-xmalloc.)

 xmalloc() used to have a mechanism to ditch memory and address
 space resources as the last resort upon seeing an allocation
 failure from the underlying malloc(), which made the code complex
 and thread-unsafe with dubious benefit, as major memory resource
 users already do limit their uses with various other mechanisms.
 It has been simplified away.

 - grep: allow locks to be enabled individually
 - object-store: add lock to read_object_file_extended()

 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.

  (merged to 'next' on 2019-08-23 at 217e97127a)
 + gitcli: document --end-of-options
 + parse-options: allow --end-of-options as a synonym for "--"
 + revision: allow --end-of-options to end option parsing

 The command line parser learned "--end-of-options" notation; the
 standard convention for scripters to have hardcoded set of options
 first on the command line, and force the command to treat end-user
 input as non-options, has been to use "--" as the delimiter, but
 that would not work for commands that use "--" as a delimiter
 between revs and pathspec.

* es/walken-tutorial (2019-08-07) 1 commit
 - documentation: add tutorial for revision walking

 A tutorial on object enumeration.

 Perhaps take the thing with as little tweaks as possible, retitling
 it to "my first object enumeration" or something?

* 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/rebase-i-keep-base (2019-04-25) 6 commits
 - rebase: teach rebase --keep-base
 - rebase: fast-forward --fork-point in more cases
 - rebase: fast-forward --onto in more cases
 - rebase: refactor can_fast_forward into goto tower
 - t3432: test rebase fast-forward behavior
 - 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").

 The command also has learned to fast-forward in more cases where it
 can instead of replaying to recreate identical commits.

 On hold.

this was v3 and doesn't sufficiently address the issue raised on
windows so might be better to drop it and requee it later on top of
jk/drop-release-pack-memory (so xmalloc could be used safely),
rs/nedalloc-fixlets (for maintanability) and ab/pcre-jit-fixes (to
avoid conflicts)

we have two alternative versions of v6 that could be used as a reroll
if you would rather do that, but will still not address the full set
of issues that will be required to stabilize it into next.

It sounds like by queuing a premature iteration, by not picking up
updated ones and by not following the discussion very closely, I am
doing more harm than simply waiting, so let me step aside, drop this
one for now and let you folks figure it out.
