What's cooking in git.git (Aug 2017, #01; Fri, 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.

The 2.14-rc2 was a bit delayed for various reasons and then there
wasn't any last-minite regressions discovered and fixed during that
timeframe, so I just decided to skip the second release candidate
and go straight to tag the final, which was done a few minutes ago.

I expect that the tree to stay a bit quiet for a week until the first
maintenance release for 2.14 series is tagged, perhaps by the end of
the next week.

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


[Graduated to "master"]

* ah/patch-id-doc (2017-07-28) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2017-08-04 at 7808b7abd3)
 + doc: remove unsupported parameter from patch-id


* as/diff-options-grammofix (2017-07-31) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2017-08-01 at bfc60e3ec5)
 + diff-options doc: grammar fix

 A grammofix.

* js/blame-lib (2017-07-24) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2017-07-26 at db0d081012)
 + blame: fix memory corruption scrambling revision name in error message

 A hotfix to a topic already in 'master'.

* jk/rev-list-empty-input (2017-08-02) 4 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2017-08-04 at cb4f9b84e0)
 + revision: do not fallback to default when rev_input_given is set
 + rev-list: don't show usage when we see empty ref patterns
 + revision: add rev_input_given flag
 + t6018: flesh out empty input/output rev-list tests

 "git log --tag=no-such-tag" showed log starting from HEAD, which
 has been fixed---it now shows nothing.

  (merged to 'next' on 2017-08-04 at 44d09da2fc)
 + tests: ensure fsck fails on corrupt packfiles

 A test update.

* ma/pager-per-subcommand-action (2017-08-03) 7 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2017-08-04 at 0f760bcf5d)
 + git.c: ignore pager.* when launching builtin as dashed external
 + tag: change default of `pager.tag` to "on"
 + tag: respect `pager.tag` in list-mode only
 + t7006: add tests for how git tag paginates
 + git.c: provide setup_auto_pager()
 + git.c: let builtins opt for handling `pager.foo` themselves
 + builtin.h: take over documentation from api-builtin.txt

 The "tag.pager" configuration variable was useless for those who
 actually create tag objects, as it interfered with the use of an
 editor.  A new mechanism has been introduced for commands to enable
 pager depending on what operation is being carried out to fix this,
 and then "git tag -l" is made to run pager by default.

 Will cook in 'next'.

 If this works out OK, I think there are low-hanging fruits in
 other commands like "git branch" that outputs long list in one mode
 while taking input in another.

* pw/sequence-rerere-autoupdate (2017-08-02) 6 commits
 - cherry-pick/revert: reject --rerere-autoupdate when continuing
 - cherry-pick/revert: remember --rerere-autoupdate
 - t3504: use test_commit
 - rebase -i: honor --rerere-autoupdate
 - rebase: honor --rerere-autoupdate

 Commands like "git rebase" accepted the --rerere-autoupdate option
 from the command line, but did not always use it.  This has been

* bw/clone-recursive-quiet (2017-08-04) 1 commit
 - clone: teach recursive clones to respect -q

 "git clone --recurse-submodules --quiet" did not pass the quiet
 option down to submodules.

 Will merge to and cook in 'next'.


* mg/status-in-progress-info (2017-05-10) 2 commits
 - status --short --inprogress: spell it as --in-progress
 - status: show in-progress info for short status

 "git status" learns an option to report various operations
 (e.g. "merging") that the user is in the middle of.

* nd/worktree-move (2017-04-20) 6 commits
 - worktree remove: new command
 - worktree move: refuse to move worktrees with submodules
 - worktree move: accept destination as directory
 - worktree move: new command
 - worktree.c: add update_worktree_location()
 - worktree.c: add validate_worktree()

 "git worktree" learned move and remove subcommands.

* sg/clone-refspec-from-command-line-config (2017-06-16) 2 commits
 - Documentation/clone: document ignored configuration variables
 - clone: respect additional configured fetch refspecs during initial fetch
 (this branch is used by sg/remote-no-string-refspecs.)

 "git clone -c var=val" is a way to set configuration variables in
 the resulting repository, but it is more useful to also make these
 variables take effect while the initial clone is happening,
 e.g. these configuration variables could be fetch refspecs.

 The final batch to "git rebase -i" updates to move more code from
 the shell script to C.

 Expecting a reroll.

* bp/fsmonitor (2017-06-12) 6 commits
 - fsmonitor: add a sample query-fsmonitor hook script for Watchman
 - fsmonitor: add documentation for the fsmonitor extension.
 - fsmonitor: add test cases for fsmonitor extension
 - fsmonitor: teach git to optionally utilize a file system monitor to speed up detecting new or changed files.
 - dir: make lookup_untracked() available outside of dir.c
 - bswap: add 64 bit endianness helper get_be64

 We learned to talk to watchman to speed up "git status".

* js/git-gui-msgfmt-on-windows (2017-07-25) 7 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2017-08-01 at 219577a73e)
 + Merge branch 'js/msgfmt-on-windows' of ../git-gui into js/git-gui-msgfmt-on-windows
 + git-gui (MinGW): make use of MSys2's msgfmt
 + Merge remote-tracking branch 'philoakley/dup-gui'
 + git gui: allow for a long recentrepo list
 + git gui: de-dup selected repo from recentrepo history
 + git gui: cope with duplicates in _get_recentrepo
 + git-gui: remove duplicate entries from .gitconfig's gui.recentrepo

 Because recent Git for Windows do come with a real msgfmt, the
 build procedure for git-gui has been updated to use it instead of a
 hand-rolled substitute.

* lg/merge-signoff (2017-07-25) 1 commit
 - merge: add a --signoff flag

 "git merge" learned a "--signoff" option to add the Signed-off-by:
 trailer with the committer's name.

* pb/trailers-from-command-line (2017-07-25) 4 commits
 - SQUASH???
 - interpret-trailers: add options for actions
 - trailers: introduce struct new_trailer_item
 - trailers: export action enums and corresponding lookup functions

 "git interpret-trailers" learned to take the trailer specifications
 from the command line that overrides the configured values.

 Expecting a reroll for compilation fix.

* sb/submodule-recursive-checkout-detach-head (2017-07-28) 2 commits
 - Documentation/checkout: clarify submodule HEADs to be detached
 - recursive submodules: detach HEAD from new state

 "git checkout --recursive" may overwrite and rewind the history of
 the branch that happens to be checked out in submodule
 repositories, which might not be desirable.  Detach the HEAD but
 still allow the recursive checkout to succeed in such a case.

 This needs justification in a larger picture; it is unclear why
 this is better than rejecting recursive checkout, for example.

* ti/external-sha1dc (2017-07-25) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2017-07-27 at d1ce394fe2)
 + hash: allow building with the external sha1dc library

 Platforms that ship with a separate sha1 with collision detection
 library can link to it instead of using the copy we ship as part of
 our source tree.

 - Merge branch 'bw/grep-recurse-submodules' into bw/submodule-config-cleanup
 (this branch uses bc/object-id, bw/grep-recurse-submodules and sb/object-id.)

 + credential-cache: interpret an ECONNRESET as an EOF

 A recently added test for the "credential-cache" helper revealed
 that EOF detection done around the time the connection to the cache
 daemon is torn down were flaky.  This was fixed by reacting to
 ECONNRESET and behaving as if we got an EOF.

 "git contacts" (in contrib/) now lists the address on the
 "Reported-by:" trailer to its output, in addition to those on
 S-o-b: and other trailers, to make it easier to notify (and thank)
 the original bug reporter.

* jc/allow-lazy-cas (2017-07-06) 1 commit
 - push: disable lazy --force-with-lease by default

 Because "git push --force-with-lease[=<ref>]" that relies on the
 stability of remote-tracking branches is unsafe when something
 fetches into the repository behind user's back, it is now disabled
 by default.  A new configuration variable can be used to enable it
 by users who know what they are doing.  This would pave the way to
 possibly turn `--force` into `--force-with-lease`.

 Independent from disabling the feature by default, this stirred up
 a discussion to replace the DWIM heuristics with a better one, which
 deserves to be its own topic.

 Many uses of comparision callback function the hashmap API uses
 cast the callback function type when registering it to
 hashmap_init(), which defeats the compile time type checking when
 the callback interface changes (e.g. gaining more parameters).
 The callback implementations have been updated to take "void *"
 pointers and cast them to the type they expect instead.

 illegal.  We started this by first deprecating and warning a
 pathspec that has such an element in 2.11 (Nov 2016).

 Hopefully we can merge this down to the 'master' by the end of the
 year?  A deprecation warning period that is about 1 year does not
 sound too bad.

 Will cook in 'next'.

 + branch: add a --copy (-c) option to go with --move (-m)
 + branch: add test for -m renaming multiple config sections
 + config: create a function to format section headers

 "git branch" learned "-c/-C" to create and switch to a new branch
 by copying an existing one.

 I personally do not think "branch --copy master backup" while on
 "master" that switches to "backup" is a good UI, and I *will* say
 "I told you so" when users complain after we merge this down to

 The filter-process interface learned to allow a process with long
 latency give a "delayed" response.

 "git gc" and friends when multiple worktrees are used off of a

 of other worktrees as the root for reachability traversal, making
 objects that are in use only in other worktrees to be subject to
 garbage collection.
