I think this would lead to confusing behavior - for example, a fetch
with "--filter=oid=mybranch:sparseconfig" would have different results
depending on whether "mybranch" refers to a valid object locally.

The way I see it, this should either (i) only accept full 40-character
OIDs or (ii) retain the raw string to be interpreted only when the
filtering is done. (i) is simpler and safer, but is not so useful. In
both cases, if the user really wants client-side interpretation, they
can still use "$(git rev-parse foo)" to make it explicit.

Good point. I'll change it to always pass the original expression
so that it is evaluated wherever the filtering is actually performed.

+void arg_format_list_objects_filter(

Is this function used anywhere (in this patch or subsequent patches)?

It is used in upload-pack.c in part 3.  I'll remove it from part 1
and revisit in part 3.

diff --git a/list-objects-filter.c b/list-objects-filter.c
+/* See object.h and revision.h */
+#define FILTER_REVISIT (1<<25)

Looking later in the code, this flag indicates that a tree has been
SHOWN, so it might be better to just call this FILTER_SHOWN.

I'll amend this. There are already several SHOWN bits that behave
slightly differently.  I'll update and document this better.  Thanks.

Document this variable?

I think it's clearer if we use "unsigned" here. Also, document this
(e.g. "1 if any descendant of this tree object was provisionally

Optional: probably a better name would be list_objects_filter_situation.

got it. thanks.

This function traverse_commit_list_filtered() is in list-objects.c but
in list-objects-filter.h, if I'm reading the diff correctly?

oops.  thanks.

Overall, this looks like a good change. Object traversal was upgraded
with the behaviors of MARK_SEEN and SHOW independently controllable and
with the ability to do things post-tree (in addition to pre-tree and
blob), and this was used to support a few types of filtering, which
subsequent patches will allow the user to invoke through "--filter=".
