git-svn: don't minimize-url when doing an init that tracks multiple paths

I didn't have a chance to test the off-by-default minimize-url
stuff enough before, but it's quite broken for people passing
the --trunk/-T, --tags/-t, --branches/-b switches to "init" or
"clone" commands.

Additionally, follow-parent functionality seems broken when we're
not connected to the root of the repository.

Default behavior for "traditional" git-svn users who only track
one directory (without needing follow-parent) should be
reasonable, as those users started using things before
minimize-url functionality existed.

Behavior for users more used to the git-svnimport-like command
line will also benefit from a more-flexible command-line than
svnimport given the assumption they're working with
non-restrictive read permissions on the repository.

I hope to properly fix these bugs when I get a chance to in the
next week or so, but I would like to get this stopgap measure of
reverting to the old behavior as soon as possible.

Fix crlf attribute handling to match documentation

gitattributes.txt says, of the crlf attribute:

 Set::
    Setting the `crlf` attribute on a path is meant to mark
    the path as a "text" file.  'core.autocrlf' conversion
    takes place without guessing the content type by
    inspection.

That is to say that the crlf attribute does not force the file to have
CRLF line endings, instead it removes the autocrlf guesswork and forces
the file to be treated as text.  Then, whatever line ending is defined
by the autocrlf setting is applied.

However, that is not what convert.c was doing.  The conversion to CRLF
was being skipped in crlf_to_worktree() when the following condition was
true:

 action == CRLF_GUESS && auto_crlf <= 0

That is to say conversion took place when not in guess mode (crlf attribute
not specified) or core.autocrlf set to true.  This was wrong.  It meant
that the crlf attribute being on for a given file _forced_ CRLF
conversion, when actually it should force the file to be treated as
text, and converted accordingly.  The real test should simply be

 auto_crlf <= 0

That is to say, if core.autocrlf is falsei (or input), conversion from
LF to CRLF is never done.  When core.autocrlf is true, conversion from
LF to CRLF is done only when in CRLF_GUESS (and the guess is "text"), or
CRLF_TEXT mode.

Similarly for crlf_to_worktree(), if core.autocrlf is false, no conversion
should _ever_ take place.  In reality it was only not taking place if
core.autocrlf was false _and_ the crlf attribute was unspecified.

Direct calls to read_sha1_file in git-archive are then replaced by calls
to convert_sha1_file.

Since convert_sha1_file expects its path argument to be NUL-terminated --
a convention it inherits from convert_to_working_tree -- the patch also
changes the path handling in archive-tar.c to always NUL-terminate the
string.  It used to solely rely on the len field of struct strbuf before.

archive-zip.c already NUL-terminates the path and thus needs no such

them at this piece of the user manual, but found it wasn't as helpful as
it could be:

- It starts with a big explanation of why you'd want a public
  repository, not necessary in their case since they already knew
  why they wanted that.  So, separate that out.
- It skimps on some of the git-daemon details, and puts the http

Use $Id$ as the ident attribute keyword rather than $ident$ to be consistent with other VCSs

$Id$ is present already in SVN and CVS; it would mean that people
converting their existing repositories won't have to make any changes to
the source files should they want to make use of the ident attribute.

Given that it's a feature that's meant to calm those very people, it
seems obtuse to make them edit every file just to make use of it.

I think that bzr uses $Id$; Mercurial has examples hooks for $Id$;
monotone has $Id$ on its wishlist.  I can't think of a good reason not

13 years agogit-svn: don't attempt to minimize URLs by default
Eric Wong [Sun, 13 May 2007 16:58:14 +0000 (09:58 -0700)]
git-svn: don't attempt to minimize URLs by default

For tracking branches and tags, git-svn prefers to connect
to the root of the repository or at least the level that
houses branches and tags as well as trunk.  However, users
that are accustomed to tracking a single directory have
no use for this feature.

As pointed out by Junio, users may not have permissions to
connect to connect to a higher-level path in the repository.

While the current minimize_url() function detects lack of
permissions to certain paths _after_ successful logins, it
cannot effectively determine if it is trying to access a
login-only portion of a repo when the user expects to
connect to a part where anonymous access is allowed.

For people used to the git-svnimport switches of
--trunk, --tags, --branches, they'll already pass the
repository root (or root+subdirectory), so minimize URL
isn't of too much use to them, either.

For people *not* used to git-svnimport, git-svn also
supports:

 git svn init --minimize-url \
  --trunk http://repository-root/foo/trunk \
  --branches http://repository-root/foo/branches \
  --tags http://repository-root/foo/tags

And this is where the new --minimize-url command-line switch
comes in to allow for this behavior to continue working.

git-svn: clean up caching of SVN::Ra functions

This patch was originally intended to make the Perl GC more
sensitive to the SVN::Pool objects and not accidentally clean
them up when they shouldn't be (causing segfaults).  That didn't
work, but this patch makes the code a bit cleaner regardless

Put our caches for get_dir and check_path calls directly into
the SVN::Ra object so they auto-expire when it is destroyed.

dirents returned by get_dir() no longer needs the pool object
stored persistently along with the cache data, as they'll be
converted to native Perl hash references.

Since calling rev_proplist repeatedly per-revision is no longer
needed in git-svn, we do not cache calls to it.
