builtin-apply: prevent non-explicit permission changes

A git patch that does not change the executable bit records the mode bits
on its "index" line.  "git apply" used to interpret this mode exactly the
same way as it interprets the mode recorded on "new mode" line, as the
wish by the patch submitter to set the mode to the one recorded on the
line.

The reason the mode does not agree between the submitter and the receiver
in the first place is because there is _another_ commit that only appears
on one side but not the other since their histories diverged, and that
commit changes the mode.  The patch has "index" line but not "new mode"
line because its change is about updating the contents without affecting
the mode.  The application of such a patch is an explicit wish by the
submitter to only cherry-pick the commit that updates the contents without
cherry-picking the commit that modifies the mode.  Viewed this way, the
current behaviour is problematic, even though the command does warn when
the mode of the path being patched does not match this mode, and a careful
user could detect this inconsistencies between the patch submitter and the
patch receiver.

This changes the semantics of the mode recorded on the "index" line;
instead of interpreting it as the submitter's wish to set the mode to the
recorded value, it merely informs what the mode submitter happened to
have, and the presense of the "index" line is taken as submitter's wish to
keep whatever the mode is on the receiving end.

This is based on the patch originally done by Alexander Potashev with a
minor fix; the tests are mine.

12 years agoRemove the requirement opaquelocktoken uri scheme
Kirill A. Korinskiy [Sat, 20 Dec 2008 06:19:46 +0000 (09:19 +0300)]
Remove the requirement opaquelocktoken uri scheme

The program flow of pushing over http is:

 - call lock_remote() to issue a DAV_LOCK request to the server to lock
   info/refs and branch refs being pushed into; handle_new_lock_ctx() is
   used to parse its response to populate "struct remote_lock" that is
   returned from lock_remote();

 - send objects;

 - call unlock_remote() to drop the lock.

The handle_new_lock_ctx() function assumed that the server will use a
lock token in opaquelocktoken URI scheme, which may have been an Ok
assumption under RFC 2518, but under RFC 4918 which obsoletes the older
standard it is not necessarily true.

This resulted in push failure (often resulted in "cannot lock existing
info/refs" error message) when talking to a server that does not use
opaquelocktoken URI scheme.

12 years agogit-sh-setup: Fix scripts whose PWD is a symlink into a git work-dir
Marcel M. Cary [Mon, 15 Dec 2008 17:34:37 +0000 (09:34 -0800)]
git-sh-setup: Fix scripts whose PWD is a symlink into a git work-dir

I want directories of my working tree to be linked to from various
paths on my filesystem where third-party components expect them, both
in development and production environments.  A build system's install
step could solve this, but I develop scripts and web pages that don't
need to be built.  Git's submodule system could solve this, but we
tend to develop, branch, and test those directories all in unison, so
one big repository feels more natural.  We prefer to edit and commit
on the symlinked paths, not the canonical ones, and in that setting,
"git pull" fails to find the top-level directory of the repository
while other commands work fine.

"git pull" fails because POSIX shells have a notion of current working
directory that is different from getcwd().  The shell stores this path
in PWD.  As a result, "cd ../" can be interpreted differently in a
shell script than chdir("../") in a C program.  The shell interprets
"../" by essentially stripping the last textual path component from
PWD, whereas C chdir() follows the ".." link in the current directory
on the filesystem.  When PWD is a symlink, these are different
destinations.  As a result, Git's C commands find the correct
top-level working tree, and shell scripts do not.

Changes:

* When interpreting a relative upward (../) path in cd_to_toplevel,
  prepend the cwd without symlinks, given by /bin/pwd
* Add tests for cd_to_toplevel and "git pull" in a symlinked
  directory that failed before this fix, plus contrasting scenarios
  that already worked

rebase -i -p: Fix --continue after a merge could not be redone

When a merge that has a conflict was rebased, then rebase stopped to let
the user resolve the conflicts. However, thereafter --continue failed
because the author-script was not saved. (This is rebase -i's way to

Show a failure of rebase -p if the merge had a conflict

This extends t3409-rebase-preserve-merges by a case where the merge that
is rebased has a conflict. Therefore, the rebase stops and expects that
the user resolves the conflict. However, currently rebase --continue
fails because .git/rebase-merge/author-script is missing.

The test script had allocated two identical clones, but only one of them
(clone2) was used. Now we use both as indicated in the comment. Also,
two instances of && was missing in the setup part.
