**Blush**. I should have caught this during the review. Thanks.
I've written that code myself in the past and I am sure I will do it
I wonder if this line in 3320 is doing what it meant to do:
test_must_fail git notes merge z 2>&1 >out &&
test_i18ngrep "Automatic notes merge failed" out &&
grep -v "A notes merge into refs/notes/x is already in-progress in" out
That's a fine question. I only grepped for 2>&1 >/dev/null. Dropping
/dev/null, as you did only turns up that test as an additional hit.
I think, based on a very cursory reading of the test, that it's
intending to direct stderr and stdout to the file out. The test gets
lucky that the code in builtin/notes.c directs the error message to
printf(_("Automatic notes merge failed. Fix conflicts in %s and "
"commit the result with 'git notes merge --commit', or "
"abort the merge with 'git notes merge --abort'.\n"),
Perhaps that should be using fprintf(stderr, ...) instead? (And the
test redirection corrected as well, of course.) If that seems
correct, I can submit the trivial patch for that as well, while I'm on
Chaos, panic, and disorder - my job is done here.
