What's cooking in git.git (May 2019, #04; Tue, 28)

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.

Quite a few new topics, most of which are fixes with different
urgency, have been picked up.  Perhaps we'd need an extra -rc for
this cycle to squash existing regression at the tip of 'master'.
At this point, the criteria for merging to 'master' is *NOT* "This
is an obviously correct fix", but is "This is an obviously correct
fix for a breakage we introduced during this cycle".

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

 in a repository upfront, which has been corrected.

 Will merge to 'next'.

 - fetch-pack: send server options after command

 A brown-paper-bag bugfix to a change already in 'master'.

 Will merge to 'next' and then to 'master'.

 "git p4" was not properly quoted to protect a caret and running a
 broken command on Windows, which has been corrected.

 Will merge to 'next'.

* nd/diff-parseopt (2019-05-28) 3 commits
 - parse-options: check empty value in OPT_INTEGER and OPT_ABBREV
 - diff-parseopt: restore -U (no argument) behavior
 - diff-parseopt: correct variable types that are used by parseopt

 A brown-paper-bag bugfix to a change already in 'master'.

 Will merge to 'next' and then to 'master'.

 Reducing the noise of the bottom-most patch may be desirable, although
 the change itself is not wrong per-se.

* pb/request-pull-verify-remote-ref (2019-05-28) 2 commits
 - request-pull: warn if the remote object is not the same as the local one
 - request-pull: quote regex metacharacters in local ref

 - git-p4: allow unshelving of branched files

 "git p4" update.

 Will merge to 'next'.

* vv/merge-squash-with-explicit-commit (2019-05-28) 1 commit
 - merge: refuse --commit with --squash

 "git merge --squash" is designed to update the working tree and the
 index without creating the commit, and this cannot be countermanded
 by adding the "--commit" option; the command now refuses to work
 when both options are given.

* xl/record-partial-clone-origin (2019-05-28) 1 commit
 - clone: respect user supplied origin name when setting up partial clone

 When creating a partial clone, the object filtering criteria is
 recorded for the origin of the clone, but this incorrectly used a
 hardcoded name "origin" to name that remote; it has been corrected
 to honor the "--origin <name>" option.

 Will merge to 'next'.


* jn/unknown-index-extensions (2018-11-21) 2 commits
 - index: offer advice for unknown index extensions
 - index: do not warn about unrecognized extensions

 A bit too alarming warning given when unknown index extensions
 exist is getting revamped.

 Expecting a reroll.

* jc/format-patch-delay-message-id (2019-04-05) 1 commit
 - format-patch: move message-id and related headers to the end

 The location "git format-patch --thread" adds the Message-Id:
 header in the series of header fields has been moved down, which
 may help working around a suspected bug in GMail MSA, reported at

 Waiting for feedback to see if it truly helps.
 Needs tests.

* jt/fetch-cdn-offload (2019-03-12) 9 commits
 - SQUASH???
 - upload-pack: send part of packfile response as uri
 - fetch-pack: support more than one pack lockfile
 - upload-pack: refactor reading of pack-objects out
 - Documentation: add Packfile URIs design doc
 - Documentation: order protocol v2 sections
 - http-fetch: support fetching packfiles by URL
 - http: improve documentation of http_pack_request
 - http: use --stdin when getting dumb HTTP pack

 WIP for allowing a response to "git fetch" to instruct the bulk of
 the pack contents to be instead taken from elsewhere (aka CDN).


* js/add-i-coalesce-after-editing-hunk (2018-08-28) 1 commit
 - add -p: coalesce hunks before testing applicability

 Applicability check after a patch is edited in a "git add -i/p"
 session has been improved.

 Will drop as "add -i in C" topic seems to be getting ready to test.

* js/protocol-advertise-multi (2018-12-28) 1 commit
 - protocol: advertise multiple supported versions

 The transport layer has been updated so that the protocol version
 used can be negotiated between the parties, by the initiator
 listing the protocol versions it is willing to talk, and the other
 side choosing from one of them.

 Expecting a reroll.

* mk/use-size-t-in-zlib (2018-10-15) 1 commit
 - zlib.c: use size_t for size

 The wrapper to call into zlib followed our long tradition to use
 "unsigned long" for sizes of regions in memory, which have been
 updated to use "size_t".

* dl/remote-save-to-push (2018-12-11) 1 commit
 - remote: add --save-to-push option to git remote set-url

 "git remote set-url" learned a new option that moves existing value
 of the URL field to pushURL field of the remote before replacing
 the URL field with a new value.

 Anybody who wants to champion this topic?
 I am personally not yet quite convinced if this is worth pursuing.


* ab/fail-prereqs-in-test (2019-05-14) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-05-16 at d1be55f485)
 + tests: add a special setup where prerequisites fail

 Developer support to emulate unsatisfied prerequisites in tests to
 ensure that the remainer of the tests still succeeds when tests
 with prerequisites are skipped.

 Will cook in 'next'.

* jk/help-unknown-ref-fix (2019-05-15) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-05-19 at e3e01160f7)
 + help_unknown_ref(): check for refname ambiguity
 + help_unknown_ref(): duplicate collected refnames

 Improve the code to show args with potential typo that cannot be

 + sequencer: the `am` and `rebase--interactive` scripts are gone
 + .gitignore: there is no longer a built-in `git-rebase--interactive`
 + t3400: stop referring to the scripted rebase
 + Drop unused git-rebase--am.sh

 Update supporting parts of "git rebase" to remove code that should
 no longer be used.

 Will cook in 'next'.

* jt/partial-clone-missing-ref-delta-base (2019-05-15) 2 commits
 - index-pack: prefetch missing REF_DELTA bases
 - t5616: refactor packfile replacement

 "git fetch" into a lazy clone forgot to fetch base objects that are
 necessary to complete delta in a thin packfile, which has been

* bl/userdiff-octave (2019-05-19) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-05-19 at 9ea1180d6c)
 + userdiff: add Octave

 The pattern "git diff/grep" use to extract funcname and words
 boundary for Matlab has been extend to cover Octave, which is more
 or less equivalent.

* ew/update-server-info (2019-05-15) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-05-19 at bf4f2871ab)
 + update-server-info: avoid needless overwrites

 "git update-server-info" learned not to rewrite the file with the
 same contents.

 Will cook in 'next'.

* nd/corrupt-worktrees (2019-05-15) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-05-16 at d92c25f800)
 + worktree add: be tolerant of corrupt worktrees

 "git worktree add" used to fail when another worktree connected to
 the same repository was corrupt, which has been corrected.

 Will cook in 'next'.

* mh/import-transport-fd-fix (2019-05-16) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-05-19 at 5e86f92f7a)
 + Use xmmap_gently instead of xmmap in use_pack
 + dup() the input fd for fast-import used for remote helpers

 The ownership rule for the file descriptor to fast-import remote
 backend was mixed up, leading to unrelated file descriptor getting
 closed, which has been fixed.

* ab/deprecate-R-for-dynpath (2019-05-19) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-05-19 at 944976e981)
 + Makefile: remove the NO_R_TO_GCC_LINKER flag

 The way of specifying the path to find dynamic libraries at runtime
 has been simplified.  The old default to pass -R/path/to/dir has been
 replaced with the new default to pass -Wl,-rpath,/path/to/dir,
 which is the more recent GCC uses.  Those who need to build with an
 old GCC can still use "CC_LD_DYNPATH=-R"

 Will cook in 'next'.

* ba/clone-remote-submodules (2019-05-28) 1 commit
 - clone: add `--remote-submodules` flag

 "git clone --recurse-submodules" learned to set up the submodules
 to ignore commit object names recorded in the superproject gitlink
 and instead use the commits that happen to be at the tip of the
 remote-tracking branches from the get-go, by passing the new
 "--remote-submodules" option.

* ds/close-object-store (2019-05-28) 3 commits
 - packfile: rename close_all_packs to close_object_store
 - packfile: close commit-graph in close_all_packs
 - commit-graph: use raw_object_store when closing
 (this branch uses ds/commit-graph-write-refactor.)

 The commit-graph file is now part of the "files that the runtime
 may keep open file descriptors on, all of which would need to be
 closed when done with the object store", and the file descriptor to
 an existing commit-graph file now is closed before "gc" finializes
 a new instance to replace it.

 Waiting on ds/commit-graph-write-refactor to stabilize.

* ja/diff-opt-typofix (2019-05-19) 1 commit

* ml/userdiff-rust (2019-05-17) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-05-19 at 1266fddce5)
 + userdiff: add built-in pattern for rust

 The pattern "git diff/grep" use to extract funcname and words
 boundary for Rust has been added.

* pw/rebase-edit-message-for-replayed-merge (2019-05-19) 1 commit
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-05-19 at dc3e30641c)
 + rebase -r: always reword merge -c

 A "merge -c" instruction during "git rebase --rebase-merges" should
 give the user a chance to edit the log message, even when there is
 otherwise no need to create a new merge and replace the existing
 one (i.e. fast-forward instead), but did not.  Which has been

* sb/format-patch-base-patch-id-fix (2019-05-08) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-05-15 at 1ab7d2b71c)
 + format-patch: make --base patch-id output stable
 + format-patch: inform user that patch-id generation is unstable

 The recently added "--base" option of "format-patch" computed the
 patch-ids for prerequisite patches in an unstable way, which has
 been updated to compute in a way that is compatible with "git
 patch-id --stable".

 Will cook in 'next'.

* ab/send-email-transferencoding-fix (2019-05-19) 7 commits
 - send-email: fix regression in sendemail.identity parsing
 - send-email: document --no-[to|cc|bcc]
 - send-email: fix broken transferEncoding tests
 - send-email: remove cargo-culted multi-patch pattern in tests
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-05-13 at 38c6a1e7e0)
 + send-email: do defaults -> config -> getopt in that order
 + send-email: rename the @bcclist variable for consistency
 + send-email: move the read_config() function above getopts

 Since "git send-email" learned to take 'auto' as the value for the
 transfer-encoding, it by mistake stopped honoring the values given
 to the configuration variables sendemail.transferencoding and/or
 sendemail.<ident>.transferencoding.  This has been corrected to
 (finally) redoing the order of setting the default, reading the
 configuration and command line options.

 Will merge to 'next'.

* dl/format-patch-notes-config (2019-05-17) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-05-19 at d3f6f1872b)
 + format-patch: teach format.notes config option
 + git-format-patch.txt: document --no-notes option

 "git format-patch" learns a configuration to set the default for
 its --notes=<ref> option.

* jk/unused-params-final-batch (2019-05-13) 14 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-05-15 at ef7435264c)
 + verify-commit: simplify parameters to run_gpg_verify()
 + show-branch: drop unused parameter from show_independent()
 + rev-list: drop unused void pointer from finish_commit()
 + remove_all_fetch_refspecs(): drop unused "remote" parameter
 + receive-pack: drop unused "commands" from prepare_shallow_update()
 + pack-objects: drop unused rev_info parameters
 + name-rev: drop unused parameters from is_better_name()
 + mktree: drop unused length parameter
 + wt-status: drop unused status parameter
 + read-cache: drop unused parameter from threaded load
 + clone: drop dest parameter from copy_alternates()
 + submodule: drop unused prefix parameter from some functions
 + builtin: consistently pass cmd_* prefix to parse_options
 + cmd_{read,write}_tree: rename "unused" variable that is used

 Remove many unused parameters throughout the codebase, with the
 ultimate aim to allow us compile with -Wunused-parameter cleanly.

  (merged to 'next' on 2019-05-15 at 4d5b17f712)
 + init: make --template path relative to $CWD

 A relative pathname given to "git init --template=<path> <repo>"
 ought to be relative to the directory "git init" gets invoked in,
 but it instead was made relative to the repository, which has been

* an/ignore-doc-update (2019-05-08) 1 commit
 - gitignore.txt: make slash-rules more readable

 The description about slashes in gitignore patterns (used to
 indicate things like "anchored to this level only" and "only
 matches directories") has been revamped.

 Almost there.
 cf. <20190507104507.18735-1-admin@xxxxxxxxxx>

* en/fast-export-encoding (2019-05-14) 5 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-05-16 at c88bd3edb5)
 + fast-export: do automatic reencoding of commit messages only if requested
 + fast-export: differentiate between explicitly UTF-8 and implicitly UTF-8
 + fast-export: avoid stripping encoding header if we cannot reencode
 + fast-import: support 'encoding' commit header
 + t9350: fix encoding test to actually test reencoding

 The "git fast-export/import" pair has been taught to handle commits
 with log messages in encoding other than UTF-8 better.

* nd/merge-quit (2019-05-19) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2019-05-19 at 9880e7ee4e)
 + merge: add --quit
 + merge: remove drop_save() in favor of remove_merge_branch_state()

 "git merge" learned "--quit" option that cleans up the in-progress
 merge while leaving the working tree and the index still in a mess.

 - rebase --abort/--quit: cleanup refs/rewritten
 - sequencer: return errors from sequencer_remove_state()
 - rebase: warn if state directory cannot be removed
 - rebase: fix a memory leak

 "git rebase --abort" used to leave refs/rewritten/ when concluding
 "git rebase -r", which has been corrected.

 On hold.

 - branch: add worktree info on verbose output
 - branch: update output to include worktree info
 - ref-filter: add worktreepath atom

 "git branch --list" learned to show branches that are checked out
 in other worktrees connected to the same repository prefixed with
 '+', similar to the way the currently checked out branch is shown
 with '*' in front.

 - git-checkout.txt: fix monospace typeset
 - doc: document --overwrite-ignore
 - git-checkout.txt: fix one syntax line

 Two new commands "git switch" and "git restore" are introduced to
 split "checking out a branch to work on advancing its history" and
 "checking out paths out of the index and/or a tree-ish to work on
 advancing the current history" out of the single "git checkout"

 The "switch" part seems more or less ready for testing.  Perhaps
 we should split this back into two topics and merge it to 'next'.

 "git format-patch" used to overwrite an existing patch/cover-letter
 file.  A new "--no-clobber" option stops it.

 Undecided but inclined to discard.

 Is this ready for 'next'?

* dl/rebase-i-keep-base (2019-04-25) 6 commits
 - rebase: teach rebase --keep-base
 - rebase: fast-forward --fork-point in more cases
 - rebase: fast-forward --onto in more cases
 - rebase: refactor can_fast_forward into goto tower
 - t3432: test rebase fast-forward behavior
 - t3431: add rebase --fork-point tests

 "git rebase --keep-base <upstream>" tries to find the original base
 of the topic being rebased and rebase on top of that same base,
 which is useful when running the "git rebase -i" (and its limited
 variant "git rebase -x").

 The command also has learned to fast-forward in more cases where it
 can instead of replaying to recreate identical commits.

 On hold.

 + worktree add: sanitize worktree names

 In recent versions of Git, per-worktree refs are exposed in
 refs/worktrees/<wtname>/ hierarchy, which means that worktree names
 must be a valid refname component.  The code now sanitizes the names
 given to worktrees, to make sure these refs are well-formed.

 Will cook in 'next'.

 (this branch is used by ds/close-object-store.)

 Renamed from commit-graph-format-v2 and changed scope.

 Expecting a reroll.
 I think it is almost there, modulo a few internal API details..

* br/blame-ignore (2019-05-17) 10 commits
 - SQUASH??? test-lint -- seq not portable
 - SQUASH??? error: decl-after-stmt
 - blame: use the fingerprint heuristic to match ignored lines
 - blame: add a fingerprint heuristic to match ignored lines
 - blame: optionally track line fingerprints during fill_blame_origin()
 - blame: add config options for the output of ignored or unblamable lines
 - blame: add the ability to ignore commits and their changes
 - blame: use a helper function in blame_chunk()
 - Move oidset_parse_file() to oidset.c
 - fsck: rename and touch up init_skiplist()

 "git blame" learned to "ignore" commits in the history, whose
 effects (as well as their presence) get ignored.

* nd/precious (2019-04-09) 1 commit
 . Introduce "precious" file concept

 "git clean" learned to pay attention to the 'precious' attributes
 and keep untracked paths with the attribute instead of removing
 when the "--keep-precious" is given.

 cf. <CACsJy8AEZ-Lz6zgEsuNukvphB9TTa9FAC1gK05fhnie2xtfc9w@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

 I am not sure what aspect of this longer-term "precious" vision,
 which gets taught to various commands and use cases individually
 and incrementally, Ævar finds problematic, which I understand is
 the reason of redtraction.

* jc/send-email-transferencoding-fix (2019-05-09) 2 commits
 . send-email: honor transferencoding config option again
 . send-email: update the mechanism to set default configuration values

 Replaced by  Ævar's "do the default in the right order" approach.
