Document pack .idx file format upgrade strategy.

Way back when Junio developed the 64 bit index topic he came up
with a means of changing the .idx file format so that older Git
clients would recognize that they don't understand the file and
refuse to read it, while newer clients could tell the difference
between the old-style and new-style .idx files.  Unfortunately
this wasn't recorded anywhere.

This change documents how we might go about changing the .idx
file format by using a special signature in the first four bytes.
Credit (and possible blame) goes completely to Junio for thinking
up this technique.

The change also modifies the error message of the current Git code
so that users get a recommendation to upgrade their Git software
should this version or later encounter a new-style .idx which it
cannot process.  We already do this for the .pack files, but since
we usually process the .idx files first its important that these
files are recognized and encourage an upgrade.

STDERR should always be flushed without buffering, so
they should always show up.  If that is unset, we still
explicitly flush by calling STDERR->flush.

Shawn O. Pearce [Sat, 13 Jan 2007 22:30:53 +0000 (17:30 -0500)]
Improve git-describe performance by reducing revision listing.

My prior version of git-describe ran very slowly on even reasonably
sized projects like git.git and linux.git as it tended to identify
a large number of possible tags and then needed to generate the
revision list for each of those tags to sort them and select the
best tag to describe the input commit.

All we really need is the number of commits in the input revision
which are not in the tag.  We can generate these counts during
the revision walking and tag matching loop by assigning a color to
each tag and coloring the commits as we walk them.  This limits us
to identifying no more than 26 possible tags, as there is limited
space available within the flags field of struct commit.

The limitation of 26 possible tags is hopefully not going to be a
problem in real usage, as most projects won't create 26 maintenance
releases and merge them back into a development trunk after the
development trunk was tagged with a release candidate tag.  If that
does occur git-describe will start to revert to its old behavior of
using the newer maintenance release tag to describe the development
trunk, rather than the development trunk's own tag.  The suggested
workaround would be to retag the development trunk's tip.

However since even 26 possible tags can take a while to generate a
description for on some projects I'm defaulting the limit to 10 but
offering the user --candidates to increase the number of possible
matches if they need a more accurate result.  I specifically chose
10 for the default as it seems unlikely projects will have more
than 10 maintenance releases merged into a development trunk before
retagging the development trunk, and it seems to perform about the
same on linux.git as v1.4.4.4 git-describe.

A large amount of debugging information was also added during
the development of this change, so I've left it in to be toggled
on with --debug.  It may be useful to the end user to help them
understand why git-describe took one particular tag over another.

indirectly "commit -C" since it is used in the latter) to make

14 years agoConsistent message encoding while reusing log from an existing commit.
Junio C Hamano [Sat, 13 Jan 2007 21:33:07 +0000 (13:33 -0800)]
Consistent message encoding while reusing log from an existing commit.

The following commands can reuse log message from an existing
commit while creating a new commit:

git-cherry-pick
git-rebase (both with and without --merge)
git-commit (-c and -C)

When the original commit was made in a different encoding from
the current i18n.commitencoding, "cat-file commit" would give a
string that is inconsistent with what the resulting commit will
claim to be in.  Replace them with "git show -s --encoding".

"git-rebase" without --merge is "git format-patch" piped to "git
am" in essence, and has been taken care of before this commit.

i18n.logoutputencoding (instructs what encoding to emit the

git-svn: fix tests to work with older svn

Some of the recent changes and shortcuts to the tests broke
things for people using older versions of svn:

t9104-git-svn-follow-parent.sh:
  v1.2.3 (from SuSE 10.0 as reported by riddochc on #git
  (thanks!)) required an extra 'svn up'.  I was also able to
  reproduce this with v1.1.4 (Debian Sarge).

lib-git-svn.sh:
  SVN::Repos bindings in versions up to and including 1.1.4
  (Sarge again) do not pass fs-config options to the underlying
  library.  BerkeleyDB repositories also seem completely broken
  on all my Sarge machines; so not using FSFS does not seem to
  be an option for most people.

This may not actually be what we want to do.  These commands are
inherently whole-tree operations, and an inexperienced user may
