Re: [GSoC][PATCH 1/1] rebase--interactive: rewrite the edit-todo functionality in C




Hi Alban, it's great to see you making progress with this.

I don't want to add to your workload but a couple of things that might be nice to have in the future would be

1) avoid rewriting the todo list and running the editor if GIT_SEQUENCE_EDITOR is ':', especially when creating the todo list for implicit interactive rebases.

2) have --edit-todo warn if the user drops commits, in the same way as rebase does for the initial edit of the todo list. This should also make it easier to use the same code for the initial edit as well as when the user does 'rebase --edit-todo'

I've got a couple of comments on this patch below.

On 11/06/18 14:57, Alban Gruin wrote:
This rewrites the edit-todo functionality from shell to C.

To achieve that, a new command mode, `edit-todo`, is added, and the
`write-edit-todo` flag is removed, as the shell script does not need to
write the edit todo help message to the todo list anymore.

The shell version is then stripped in favour of a call to the helper.
