Use strbufs and strings instead of interned strings for values of rev,
dump, and node fields that happen to be strings.  After this change,
the only remaining string_pool use is for paths in the repo_tree API

Functional change: treat an empty author, UUID, or URL as none at all.
So for example, in repos where the first revision has an empty
svn:author property, the first rev will be treated as by "nobody"
rather than by a person with empty name and email address created by

gitweb: highlight: replace tabs with spaces

Consider the following code fragment:

        /*

         */

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: drop author/documentation sections from most pages

  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are out of date and incomplete.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wanted to cc the contact point, the out-of-date and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.

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

follow that to the main git manpage.

10 years agobash: complete 'git diff ...branc<TAB>'
SZEDER Gábor [Thu, 10 Mar 2011 18:12:29 +0000 (19:12 +0100)]
bash: complete 'git diff ...branc<TAB>'

While doing a final sanity check before merging a topic Bsomething, it
is a good idea to review what damage Bsomething branch would make, by
running:

    $ git diff ...Bsomething

Unfortunately, our completion script for 'git diff' doesn't offer
anything after '...'.  This is because 'git diff's completion function
invokes __git_complete_file() for non-option arguments to complete the
'<tree>:<path>' extended SHA-1 notation, but this helper function
doesn't support refs after '...' or '..'.  Completion of refs after
'...' or '..' is supported by the __git_complete_revlist() helper
function, but that doesn't support '<tree>:<path>'.

To support both '...<ref>' and '<tree>:<path>' notations for 'git
diff', this patch, instead of adding yet another helper function,
joins __git_complete_file() and __git_complete_revlist() into the new
common function __git_complete_revlist_file().  The old helper
functions __git_complete_file() and __git_complete_revlist() are
changed to be a direct wrapper around the new
__git_complete_revlist_file(), because they might be used in
user-supplied completion scripts and we don't want to break them.

This change will cause some wrong suggestions for other commands which
use __git_complete_file() ('git diff' and friends) or
__git_complete_revlist() ('git log' and friends), e.g. 'git diff
...master:Doc<TAB>' and 'git log master:Doc<TAB>' will complete the
path to 'Documentation/', although neither commands make any sense.
However, both of these were actively wrong to begin with as soon as
the user entered the ':', so there is no real harm done.

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.
