Junio C Hamano [Fri, 8 Apr 2011 23:18:46 +0000 (16:18 -0700)]
magic pathspec: futureproof shorthand form

The earlier design was to take whatever non-alnum that the short format
parser happens to support, leaving the rest as part of the pattern, so a
version of git that knows '*' magic and a version that does not would have
behaved differently when given ":*Makefile".  The former would have
applied the '*' magic to the pattern "Makefile", while the latter would
used no magic to the pattern "*Makefile".

Instead, just reserve all non-alnum ASCII letters that are neither glob
nor regexp special as potential magic signature, and when we see a magic
that is not supported, die with an error message, just like the longhand
codepath does.

With this, ":%#!*Makefile" will always mean "%#!" magic applied to the
pattern "*Makefile", no matter what version of git is used (it is a
different matter if the version of git supports all of these three magic
matching rules).

Also make ':' without anything else to mean "there is no pathspec".  This
would allow differences between "git log" and "git log ." run from the top
level of the working tree (the latter simplifies no-op commits away from
the history) to be expressed from a subdirectory by saying "git log :".

magic pathspec: add tentative ":/path/from/top/level" pathspec support

Support ":/" magic string that can be prefixed to a pathspec element to
say "this names the path from the top-level of the working tree", when
you are in the subdirectory.

For example, you should be able to say:

    $ edit Makefile ;# top-level
    $ cd Documentation
    $ edit git.txt ;# in the subdirectory

and then do one of three things, still inside the subdirectory:

    $ git add -u .  ;# add only Documentation/git.txt
    $ git add -u :/ ;# add everything, including paths outside Documentation
    $ git add -u    ;# whatever the default setting is.

To truly support magic pathspec, the API needs to be restructured so that
get_pathspec() and init_pathspec() are unified into one call.  Currently,
the former just prefixes the user supplied pathspec with the current
subdirectory path, and the latter takes the output from the former and
pre-parses them into a bit richer structure for easier handling.  They
should become a single API function that takes the current subdirectory
path and the remainder of argv[] (after parsing --options and revision
arguments from the command line) and returns an array of parsed pathspec
elements, and "magic" should become attributes of struct pathspec_item.

This patch implements only "top" magic because it can be hacked into the
system without such a refactoring.

The syntax for magic pathspec prefix is designed to be extensible yet
simple to type to invoke a simple magic like "from the top".  The parser
for the magic prefix is hooked into get_pathspec() function in this patch,
and it needs to be moved when we refactor the API.

But we have to start from somewhere.

Kevin Cernekee [Wed, 16 Mar 2011 22:34:13 +0000 (15:34 -0700)]
gitweb: highlight: replace tabs with spaces

Consider the following code fragment:

        /*
         * test
         */

vim ":set list" mode shows that the first character on each line is a
tab:

^I/*$
^I * test$
^I */$

By default, the "highlight" program will retain the tabs in the HTML
output:

$ highlight --fragment --syntax c test.c
        <span class="hl com">/*</span>
<span class="hl com">    * test</span>
<span class="hl com">    */</span>

vim list mode:

^I<span class="hl com">/*</span>$
<span class="hl com">^I * test</span>$
<span class="hl com">^I */</span>$

In gitweb, this winds up looking something like:

   1         /*
   2     * test
   3     */

I tried both Firefox and Opera and saw the same behavior.

The desired output is:

   1         /*
   2          * test
   3          */

This can be accomplished by specifying "--replace-tabs=8" on the
highlight command line.

doc: add missing git footers

Almost every page has a footer that links back to the main

doc: drop author/documentation sections from most pages

The point of these sections is generally to:

  1. Give credit where it is due.

  2. Give the reader an idea of where to ask questions or
     file bug reports.

But they don't do a good job of either case. For (1), they
are out of date and incomplete. A much more accurate answer
can be gotten through shortlog or blame.  For (2), the
correct contact point is generally git@vger, and even if you
wanted to cc the contact point, the out-of-date and
incomplete fields mean you're likely sending to somebody
useless.

So let's drop the fields entirely from all manpages except
git(1) itself. We already point people to the mailing list
for bug reports there, and we can update the Authors section
to give credit to the major contributors and point to
shortlog and blame for more information.

Each page has a "This is part of git" footer, so people can
follow that to the main git manpage.

Jonathan Nieder [Thu, 10 Mar 2011 03:17:58 +0000 (21:17 -0600)]
i18n: add stub Q_() wrapper for ngettext

The Q_ function translates a string representing some pharse with an
alternative plural form and uses the 'count' argument to choose which
form to return.  Use of Q_ solves the "%d noun(s)" problem in a way
that is portable to languages outside the Germanic and Romance
families.

In English, the semantics of Q_(sing, plur, count) are roughly
equivalent to

count == 1 ? _(sing) : _(plur)

while in other languages there can be more variants (count == 0; more
random-looking rules based on the historical pronunciation of the
number).  Behind the scenes, the singular form is used to look up a
family of translations and the plural form is ignored unless no
translation is available.

Define such a Q_ in gettext.h with the English semantics so C code can
start using it to mark phrases with a count for translation.

The name "Q_" is taken from subversion and stands for "quantity".
Many projects just use ngettext directly without a wrapper analogous
to _; we should not do so because git's gettext.h is meant not to
conflict with system headers that might include libintl.h.

log: fix --max-count when used together with -S or -G

The --max-count limit is implemented by counting revisions in
get_revision(), but the -S and -G take effect later when running diff.
Hence "--max-count=10 -Sfoo" meant "examine the 10 first revisions, and
out of them, show only those changing the occurences of foo", not "show 10
revisions changing the occurences of foo".

max_count.
