Back when I committed this, it seemed to be a good idea.  People
who always use remote tracking branches can optionally use the
local name they happen to use to specify what to merge, which meant
that I did not have to teach them why we use the name at the remote
side every time they are confused.

But allowing it seems to break other people's scripts.  The real
solution is not to allow more ways to express the same thing, but
to educate people to use the right syntax.

git-clone --reference: saner handling of borrowed symrefs.

When using --reference to borrow objects from a neighbouring
repository while cloning, we copy the entire set of refs under
temporary "refs/reference-tmp/refs" space and set up the object
alternates.  However, a textual symref copied this way would not
point at the right place, and causes later steps to emit error
messages (which is harmless but still alarming).  This is most
visible when using a clone created with the separate-remote
layout as a reference, because such a repository would have
refs/remotes/origin/HEAD with 'ref: refs/remotes/origin/master'
as its contents.

Although we do not create symbolic-link based refs anymore, they
have the same problem because they are always supposed to be
relative to refs/ hierarchy (we dereference by hand, so it only
is good for HEAD and nothing else).

In either case, the solution is simply to remove them after
copying under refs/reference-tmp; if a symref points at a true
ref, that true ref itself is enough to ensure that objects
reachable from it do not needlessly get fetched.

Why is it bad to rewind a branch that has already been pushed out?

I was reading the tutorial and noticed that we say this:

    Also, don't use "git reset" on a publicly-visible branch that
    other developers pull from, as git will be confused by history
    that disappears in this way.

I do not think this is a good explanation.  For example, if we
do this:

(1) I build a series and push it out.

---o---o---o---j

(2) Alice clones from me, and builds two commits on top of it.

---o---o---o---j---a---a

(3) I rewind one and build a few, and push them out.

---o---o---o...j
                    \
                     h---h---h---h

(4) Alice pulls from me again:

---o---o---o---j---a---a---*
                    \             /
                     h---h---h---h

Contrary to the description, git will happily have Alice merge
between the two branches, and never gets confused.

Maybe I did not want to have 'j' because it was an incomplete
solution to some problem, and Alice may have fixed it up with
her changes, while I abandoned that approach I started with 'j',
and worked on something completely unrelated in the four 'h'
commits.  In such a case, the merge Alice would make would be
very sensible, and after she makes the merge if I pull from her,
the world will be perfect.  I started something with 'j' and
dropped the ball, Alice picked it up and perfected it while I
went on to work on something else with 'h'.  This would be a
perfect example of distributed parallel collaboration.  There is
nothing confused about it.

The case the rewinding becomes problematic is if the work done
in 'h' tries to solve the same problem as 'j' tried to solve in
a different way.  Then the merge forced on Alice would make her
pick between my previous attempt with her fixups (j+a) and my
second attempt (h).  If 'a' commits were to fix up what 'j'
started, presumably Alice already studied and knows enough about
the problem so she should be able to make an informed decision
to pick between what 'j+a' and 'h' do.

A lot worse case is if Alice's work is not at all related to
what 'j' wanted to do (she did not mean to pick up from where I
left off -- she just wanted to work on something different).
Then she would not be familiar enough with what 'j' and 'h'
tried to achieve, and I'd be forcing her to pick between the
two.  Of course if she can make the right decision, then again
that is a perfect example of distributed collaboration, but that
does not change the fact that I'd be forcing her to clean up my
mess.

14 years agoDon't find objects in packs which aren't available anymore.
Shawn O. Pearce [Thu, 1 Feb 2007 20:52:38 +0000 (15:52 -0500)]
Don't find objects in packs which aren't available anymore.

Matthias Lederhofer identified a race condition where a Git reader
process was able to locate an object in a packed_git index, but
was then preempted while a `git repack -a -d` ran and completed.
By the time the reader was able to seek in the packfile to get the
object data, the packfile no longer existed on disk.

In this particular case the reader process did not attempt to
open the packfile before it was deleted, so it did not already
have the pack_fd field popuplated.  With the packfile itself gone,
there was no way for the reader to open it and fetch the data.

I'm fixing the race condition by teaching find_pack_entry to ignore
a packed_git whose packfile is not currently open and which cannot
be opened.  If none of the currently known packs can supply the
object, we will return 0 and the caller will decide the object is
not available.  If this is the first attempt at finding an object,
the caller will reprepare_packed_git and try again.  If it was
the second attempt, the caller will typically return NULL back,
and an error message about a missing object will be reported.

This patch does not address the situation of a reader which is
being starved out by a tight sequence of `git repack -a -d` runs.
In this particular case the reader will try twice, probably fail
both times, and declare the object in question cannot be found.
As it is highly unlikely that a real world `git repack -a -d` can
complete faster than a reader can open a packfile, so I don't think
this is a huge concern.

Junio C Hamano [Thu, 1 Feb 2007 09:08:41 +0000 (01:08 -0800)]
detached HEAD -- finishing touches

This updates "git-checkout" to report which branch you are
switching to.  Especially for people who do not use __git_ps1
from contrib/completion/git-completion.bash this would give a
friendlier feedback of what is going on, and should make the
reminder message much less scary.

Here is a sample session (the prompt tells which branch I am on).

* I have some local modification and realize that the change deserves
  to be on its own new topic branch.

    [git.git (master)]$ git diff --stat
     git-checkout.sh |   10 ++++++++--
     1 files changed, 8 insertions(+), 2 deletions(-)

* So I switch to a new branch.  I get a listing of local modifications
  and assuring "Switched to a new branch" message.

    [git.git (master)]$ git checkout -b jc/checkout
    M       git-checkout.sh
    Switched to a new branch "jc/checkout"

* If I switch back to "master", I get essentially the same.

    [git.git (jc/checkout)]$ git checkout master
    M       git-checkout.sh
    Switched to branch "master"

* Detaching head would say which commit I am at and reminds me that
  I am not on any branch (not that I would detach my HEAD while keeping
  precious local changes around in any real-world workflow -- this is
  just a sample session).

    [git.git (master)]$ git checkout master^
    M       git-checkout.sh
    Note: you are not on any branch and are at commit "master^"
    If you want to create a new branch from this checkout, you may do so
    (now or later) by using -b with the checkout command again. Example:
      git checkout -b <new_branch_name>

* Coming back to an attached state can lose the detached HEAD, so
  I get warned and stopped.

    [git.git]$ git checkout master
    You are not on any branch and switching to branch 'master'
    may lose your changes.  At this point, you can do one of two things:
     (1) Decide it is Ok and say 'git checkout -f master';
     (2) Start a new branch from the current commit, by saying
         'git checkout -b <branch-name>'.
    Leaving your HEAD detached; not switching to branch 'master'.

* Moving around while my HEAD is detached is Ok.  I still get the list
  of local modifications.

    [git.git]$ git checkout master^0
    M       git-checkout.sh

* The previous step that switched to the tip commit is an obscure but
  useful trick.  My HEAD is still detached but now it is pointed at by
  an existing ref, so I can come back safely.

    [git.git]$ git checkout master
    M       git-checkout.sh
    Switched to branch "master"

* And we are back on the "master" branch.

Heavily expanded update hook to send more useful emails than the old hook

I know it's only an example, but having this might save someone else the
trouble of writing an enhanced version for themselves.

It basically does the same job as the old update hook, but with these
differences:
 * The recipients list is read from the repository config file from
   hooks.mailinglist
 * Updating unannotated tags can be allowed by setting
   hooks.allowunannotated
 * Announcement emails (via annotated tag creation) can be sent to a
   different mailing list by setting hooks.announcelist
 * Output email is more verbose and generates specific content depending
   on whether the ref is a tag, an annotated tag, a branch, or a
   tracking branch
 * The email is easier to filter; the subject line is prefixed with
   [SCM] and a project description pulled from the "description" file
 * It catches (and displays differently) branch updates that are
   performed with a --force

Obviously, it's nothing that clever - it's the update hook I use on my
repositories but I've tried to keep it general, and tried to make the
output always relevant to the type of update.

Andy Parkins [Fri, 26 Jan 2007 08:58:48 +0000 (08:58 +0000)]
UNIX reference time of 1970-01-01 00:00 is UTC timezone, not local time zone

I got bitten because in the UK (where one would expect 1970-01-01 00:00
to be UTC 0) some politicians decided to mess around with daylight
savings time from 1968 to 1971; it was permanently BST (+0100).  That
means that on my computer the following is true:

$ date --date="1970-01-01 00:00" +"%F %T %z (%Z)"
1970-01-01 00:00:00 +0100 (BST)

This of course means that the --date argument to date is specified in
local time, not UTC.  So when the hooks--update script does this:

date=$(date --date="1970-01-01 00:00:00 $ts seconds")

It's actually saying (in my timezone) "1970-01-01 01:00:00 UTC" + $ts.
Clearly this is wrong.  The UNIX epoch started at midnight UTC not 1am
UTC.

This leads to the tagged time in hooks--update being shown as one hour
earlier than the true tagged time (in my timezone).  The problem would
be worse for other timezones.  For a +1300 timezone on 1970-01-01, the
tagged time would be 13 hours earlier.  Oops.

The solution is to force the reference time to UTC, which is what this
patch does.  In my timezone:

$ date --date="1970-01-01 00:00 +0000" +"%F %T %z (%Z)"
1970-01-01 01:00:00 +0100 (BST)

Much better.
