git-svn: Reduce temp file usage when dealing with non-links

Currently, in sub 'close_file', git-svn creates a temporary file and
copies the contents of the blob to be written into it. This is useful
for symlinks because svn stores symlinks in the form:

link $FILE_PATH

Git creates a blob only out of '$FILE_PATH' and uses file mode to
indicate that the blob should be interpreted as a symlink.

As git-hash-object is invoked with --stdin-paths, a duplicate of the
link from svn must be created that leaves off the first five bytes,
i.e. 'link '. However, this is wholly unnecessary for normal blobs,
though, as we already have a temp file with their contents. Copying
the entire file gains nothing, and effectively requires a file to be
written twice before making it into the object db.

This patch corrects that issue, holding onto the substr-like
duplication for symlinks, but skipping it altogether for normal blobs
by reusing the existing temp file.

12 years agogit-svn: Make it incrementally faster by minimizing temp files

git-svn: Make it incrementally faster by minimizing temp files

Currently, git-svn would create a temp file on four occasions:
1. Reading a blob out of the object db
2. Creating a delta from svn
3. Hashing and writing a blob into the object db
4. Reading a blob out of the object db (in another place in code)

Any time git-svn did the above, it would dutifully create and then
delete said temp file.  Unfortunately, this means that between 2-4
temporary files are created/deleted per file 'add/modify'-ed in
svn (O(n)).  This causes significant overhead and helps the inode
counter to spin beautifully.

By its nature, git-svn is a serial beast.  Thus, reusing a temp file
does not pose significant problems.  "truncate and seek" takes much
less time than "unlink and create".  This patch centralizes the
tempfile creation and holds onto the tempfile until they are deleted
on exit.  This significantly reduces file overhead, now requiring
at most three (3) temp files per run (O(1)).

Junio C Hamano [Sat, 9 Aug 2008 08:17:24 +0000 (01:17 -0700)]
mailinfo: fix MIME multi-part message boundary handling

After finding a MIME multi-part message boundary line, the handle_body()
function is supposed to first flush any accumulated contents from the
previous part to the output stream.  However, the code mistakenly output
the boundary line it found.

The old code that used one global, fixed-length buffer line[] used an
alternate static buffer newline[] for keeping track of this accumulated
contents and flushed newline[] upon seeing the boundary; when 3b6121f
(git-mailinfo: use strbuf's instead of fixed buffers, 2008-07-13)
converted a fixed-length buffer in this program to use strbuf,these two
buffers were converted to "line" and "prev" (the latter of which now has a
much more sensible name) strbufs, but the code mistakenly flushed "line"
(which contains the boundary we have just found), instead of "prev".

This resulted in the first boundary to be output in front of the first
line of the message.

The rewritten implementation of handle_boundary() lost the terminating
newline; this would then result in the second line of the message to be
stuck with the first line.

The is_multipart_boundary() was designed to catch both the internal
boundary and the terminating one (the one with trailing "--"); this also
was broken with the rewrite, and the code in the handle_boundary() to
handle the terminating boundary was never triggered.

git-svn: add ability to specify --commit-url for dcommit

This allows one to use public svn:// URLs for fetch and
svn+ssh:// URLs for committing (without using the complicated
rewriteRoot option, reimporting or git-filter-branch).

Using this can also help avoid unnecessary server
authentication/encryption overhead on busy SVN servers.

Along with the new --revision option, this can also be allowed
to override the branch detection in dcommit, too.  This is
potentially dangerous and not recommended!  (And also purposely
undocumented, but the loaded gun is there in case somebody
wants to make it safe).

Files given on the command line are relative to $cwd

When running "git commit -F file" and "git tag -F file" from a
subdirectory, we should take it as relative to the directory we started
from, not relative to the top-level directory.

This adds a helper function "parse_options_fix_filename()" to make it more
convenient to fix this class of issues.  Ideally, parse_options() should
support a new type of option, "OPT_FILENAME", to do this uniformly, but
this patch is meant to go to 'maint' to fix it minimally.

One thing to note is that value for "commit template file" that comes from
the command line is taken as relative to $cwd just like other parameters,
but when it comes from the configuration varilable 'commit.template', it
is taken as relative to the working tree root as before.  I think this
difference actually is sensible (not that I particularly think
commit.template itself is sensible).

Long time ago, the feature of "diff-tree --stdin" to take a commit and its

    git rev-list --parents $commits... -- $paths... |

about commits, it needs to see commits, not just trees; the code was fixed

Optimize sha1_object_info for loose objects, not concurrent repacks

before finally giving up and looking for the loose object. This caused a lot

rereading the entire pack directory once for each loose object file.

This patch looks for a loose object before falling back to rescanning the
pack directory, rather than the other way around.
