Since Git supports hashes other than SHA-1, the hardcoded $_x40 used to
match OIDs is no longer correct. Replace it with a hash-agnostic
version.

While we're at it fix some indent issues.

There are some other style issues in the script but I'll leave those as
out-of-scope.

In the git-resurrect script, there are a few lines that are mistakenly
indented with spaces. Replace these lines with tabs.

Since Git now supports hashes other than SHA-1, the hash length isn't
guaranteed to be 40 characters. Replace $_x40 with a hash-agnostic OID
pattern.

This looks correct, although...

in both cases we are matching output we asked for, so we really matching
[0-9a-f]\+ would be correct and sufficient. That's a little simpler. I
don't feel too strongly either way, though.

  Side note: It's a shame that there is no way to convince rev-list not
  to print the "commit ..." header, which is really what we're avoiding
  here. We probably should have suppressed it with user-formats when
  they were introduced, but it's too late to make that change. I wonder
  if it would be worth adding a command-line option, though. I've often
  had to hack around this when parsing rev-list output (and sometimes
  even resort to using git-log if it's a one-off).

Unless this is done in preparation for a more meaningful change
(like not reading from on-disk logs/HEAD and instead reading from
"git reflog" output in order to help our future migration to the
reftable backend), I do not think the reviewers' time is worth it
for cosmetic changes on this script.

Yes.  I think use of _x40 is overrated.

Or make "git log" without frills as fast as rev-list, perhaps?

What extra things do we do that makes "log" inherently slower than
"rev-list"?

I do not mind a new option (e.g. --no-header) to "rev-list", though.

Thanks.

OK, so the "meaningful" part is to prepare for SHA-256 world.  That
sort-of makes sense.

But don't we want to remove the SP after the redirection operator
on the same line, while we are looking at it?

It's not the speed of log that is a problem, but just that I usually try
to use plumbing when scripting. So I often reach for rev-list first.

I do think for just listing commit hashes that log is slower, though.
One reason is that when there's a commit-graph, it's not as good at
avoiding reading the commit objects. E.g.:

  $ time git rev-list HEAD >/dev/null
  real	0m0.031s
  user	0m0.027s
  sys	0m0.004s

  $ time git -c core.commitgraph=false rev-list HEAD >/dev/null
  real	0m0.362s
  user	0m0.345s
  sys	0m0.016s

  $ time git log --format=%H HEAD >/dev/null
  real	0m0.371s
  user	0m0.355s
  sys	0m0.016s

So running "git log" takes about the same time as rev-list if we disable
the commit-graph. Which makes sense. The pretty-print code is aggressive
about loading the object contents, even if we end up not needing it
(because really, everything _except_ userformat does need it, and even
userformat usually needs it).

I think it would be nice to make the formatting code smarter about
reporting exactly which parts it needs.

> I do not mind a new option (e.g. --no-header) to "rev-list", though.

I took a brief look at this earlier today and it was more awkward than I
expected. The "commit <oid>" header might also have other stuff attached
to it (revision marks, parents, and who even knew we had a "--timestamp"
option?). It's not clear where those things should go if we suppress the
header (for oneline, they just get stuck in front of the oneline; would
that be OK for userformats, too?).

We could write this more simply as this:

  oid_pattern=$(git hash-object /dev/null | sed -e 's/./[0-9a-f]/g')

I'm almost certain that works just fine, even on Windows, and I think
the hashing code may be able to optimize better if we avoid --stdin
(since it knows the size ahead of time).  The performance benefit, if
any, won't be that significant, though, since we're only hashing 7
bytes.

This is, of course, not worth a reroll in itself.

The problem here is that we'd need to write [0-9a-f][0-9a-f]* because
this is a BRE and a backslashed + here is a GNU extension.

I'm fine with this patch (and patch 1) as it stands or with that change.
I don't think this can be ambiguous, although if we think it can be
(even with silly user behavior), then we should adopt this solution.

Yeah, I use git log for scripting more often than I'd like because
rev-list can't remove the header.  That would indeed be a welcome
feature.

I wonder why --pretty uses %s when it is filtered out again anyway?
(There is also a duplicate --all.)

It does confirm that the commit in question is a (likely) merge commit,
and not one that happens to have "Merge branch 'foo'" in the body, which
the earlier --grep would have hit. But it doesn't actually check for
'foo' in the sed match, so it would be fooled by a commit message like:

  Merge branch 'bar'

    * bar:
      Merge branch 'foo'

If we wanted to tighten that up, then sed should match the branch name.
If we're willing to accept the looseness, the whole thing could probably
be:

  git rev-list --all --grep="Merge branch '$1'" \
    --min-parents 2 --parents ${early_exit:-"-1"} |
  awk '{print $3}'

I'm happy either way, but I'm not sure anybody overly cares. Let's not
derail Denton's actual fix to make the script work in a sha256 world.
