12 years agogit-svn: Make following parents atomic
Deskin Miller [Mon, 8 Dec 2008 13:31:31 +0000 (08:31 -0500)]
git-svn: Make following parents atomic

find_parent_branch generates branch@rev type branches when one has to
look back through SVN history to properly get the history for a branch
copied from somewhere not already being tracked by git-svn.  If in the
process of fetching this history, git-svn is interrupted, then when one
fetches again, it will use whatever was last fetched as the parent
commit and fail to fetch any more history which it didn't get to before
being terminated.  This is especially troubling in that different
git-svn copies of the same SVN repository can end up with different
commit sha1s, incorrectly showing the history as divergent and
precluding easy collaboration using git push and fetch.

To fix this, when we initialise the Git::SVN object $gs to search for
and perhaps fetch history, we check if there are any commits in SVN in
the range between the current revision $gs is at, and the top revision
for which we were asked to fill history.  If there are commits we're
missing in that range, we continue the fetch from the current revision
to the top, properly getting all history before using it as the parent
for the branch we're trying to create.

"git diff" with three or more trees expects the merged tree first followed by

tag: delete TAG_EDITMSG only on successful tag

The user may put some effort into writing an annotated tag
message. When the tagging process later fails (which can
happen fairly easily, since it may be dependent on gpg being
correctly configured and used), there is no record left on

Instead, let's keep the TAG_EDITMSG file around until we are
sure the tag has been created successfully. If we die
because of an error, the user can recover their text from
that file. Leaving the file in place causes no conflicts;
it will be silently overwritten by the next annotated tag
creation.

12 years agodate/time: do not get confused by fractional seconds
Linus Torvalds [Sun, 17 Aug 2008 04:25:40 +0000 (21:25 -0700)]
date/time: do not get confused by fractional seconds

The date/time parsing code was confused if the input time HH:MM:SS is
followed by fractional seconds.  Since we do not record anything finer
grained than seconds, we could just drop fractional part, but there is a
twist.

We have taught people that not just spaces but dot can be used as word
separators when spelling things like:

    $ git log --since 2.days
    $ git show @{12:34:56.7.days.ago}

and we shouldn't mistake "7" in the latter example as a fraction and
discard it.

The rules are:

 - valid days of month/mday are always single or double digits.

 - valid years are either two or four digits

   No, we don't support the year 600 _anyway_, since our encoding is based
   on the UNIX epoch, and the day we worry about the year 10,000 is far
   away and we can raise the limit to five digits when we get closer.

 - Other numbers (eg "600 days ago") can have any number of digits, but
   they cannot start with a zero. Again, the only exception is for
   two-digit numbers, since that is fairly common for dates ("Dec 01" is
   not unheard of)

So that means that any milli- or micro-second would be thrown out just
because the number of digits shows that it cannot be an interesting date.

A milli- or micro-second can obviously be a perfectly fine number
according to the rules above, as long as it doesn't start with a '0'. So
if we have

12:34:56.123

then that '123' gets parsed as a number, and we remember it. But because
it's bigger than 31, we'll never use it as such _unless_ there is
something after it to trigger that use.

So you can say "12:34:56.123.days.ago", and because of the "days", that
123 will actually be meaninful now.

checkout: Fix "initial checkout" detection

Earlier commit 5521883 (checkout: do not lose staged removal, 2008-09-07)
tightened the rule to prevent switching branches from losing local
changes, so that staged removal of paths can be protected, while
attempting to keep a loophole to still allow a special case of switching
out of an un-checked-out state.

However, the loophole was made a bit too tight, and did not allow
switching from one branch (in an un-checked-out state) to check out
another branch.

The change to builtin-checkout.c in this commit loosens it to allow this,
by not insisting the original commit and the new commit to be the same.

It also introduces a new function, is_index_unborn (and an associated
macro, is_cache_unborn), to check if the repository is truly in an
un-checked-out state more reliably, by making sure that $GIT_INDEX_FILE
did not exist when populating the in-core index structure.  A few places

edited it.

We used to look for the diff by searching for the "diff --git a/"
header. With diff.mnemonicprefix set in the configuration, however, this
pattern does not match.  The pattern is loosened to cover this case.

Also, if the user puts their own diff in the message (e.g., as a sample
output), then we will accidentally trigger the pattern, removing part of
their output.

We can avoid doing this stripping altogether if the user didn't use "-v"

pack-objects: avoid reading uninitalized data

  struct object_entry *entry = *list++;
  ...
  if (!*list_size)
  ...
  break

Because we look at and increment *list _before_ the check of
list_size, in the very last iteration of the loop we will
look at uninitialized data, and increment the pointer beyond
one past the end of the allocated space. Since we don't
actually do anything with the data until after the check,
this is not a problem in practice.

But since it technically violates the C standard, and
because it provokes a spurious valgrind warning, let's just
move the initialization of entry to a safe place.

12 years agocorrect cache_entry allocation
Jeff King [Thu, 23 Oct 2008 04:30:58 +0000 (04:30 +0000)]
correct cache_entry allocation

Most cache_entry structs are allocated by using the
cache_entry_size macro, which rounds the size of the struct
up to the nearest multiple of 8 bytes (presumably to avoid
memory fragmentation).

There is one exception: the special "conflict entry" is
allocated with an empty name, and so is explicitly given
just one extra byte to hold the NUL.

However, later code doesn't realize that this particular
struct has been allocated differently, and happily tries
reading and copying it based on the ce_size macro, which
assumes the 8-byte alignment.

This can lead to reading uninitalized data, though since
that data is simply padding, there shouldn't be any problem
as a result. Still, it makes sense to hold the padding
assumption so as not to surprise later maintainers.

This fixes valgrind errors in t1005, t3030, t4002, and
t4114.
