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

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)"

14 years agoCompute accurate distances in git-describe before output.
Shawn O. Pearce [Sat, 27 Jan 2007 06:54:21 +0000 (01:54 -0500)]
Compute accurate distances in git-describe before output.

My prior change to git-describe attempts to print the distance
between the input commit and the best matching tag, but this distance
was usually only an estimate as we always aborted revision walking
as soon as we overflowed the configured limit on the number of
possible tags (as set by --candidates).

Displaying an estimated distance is not very useful and can just be
downright confusing.  Most users (heck, most Git developers) don't
immediately understand why this distance differs from the output
of common tools such as `git rev-list | wc -l`.  Even worse, the
estimated distance could change in the future (including decreasing
despite no rebase occuring) if we find more possible tags earlier
on during traversal.  (This could happen if more tags are merged
into the branch between queries.)  These factors basically make an
estimated distance useless.

Fortunately we are usually most of the way through an accurate
distance computation by the time we abort (due to reaching the
current --candidates limit).  This means we can simply finish
counting out the revisions still in our commit queue to present
the accurate distance at the end.  The number of commits remaining
in the commit queue is probably less than the number of commits
already traversed, so finishing out the count is not likely to take
very long.  This final distance will then always match the output of
`git rev-list | wc -l`.

We can easily reduce the total number of commits that need to be
walked at the end by stopping as soon as all of the commits in the
commit queue are flagged as being merged into the already selected
best possible tag.  If that's true then there are no remaining
unseen commits which can contribute to our best possible tag's
depth counter, so further traversal is useless.

Basic testing on my Mac OS X system shows there is no noticable
performance difference between this accurate distance counting
version of git-describe and the prior version of git-describe,
at least when run on git.git.

whenever it is asked to update a ref.  And I do not think
calling ignore_missing_committer_name() upfront like recent
receive-pack did in the aplication is a reasonable workaround.

What the patch does.

 - git_committer_info() takes one parameter.  It used to be "if
   this is true, then die() if the name is not available due to
   bad GECOS, otherwise issue a warning once but leave the name
   empty".  The reason was because we wanted to prevent bad
   commits from being made by git-commit-tree (and its
   callers).  The value 0 is only used by "git var -l".

   Now it takes -1, 0 or 1.  When set to -1, it does not
   complain but uses the pw->pw_name when name is not
   available.  Existing 0 and 1 values mean the same thing as
   they used to mean before.  0 means issue warnings and leave
   it empty, 1 means barf and die.

 - ignore_missing_committer_name() and its existing caller
   (receive-pack, to set the reflog) have been removed.

 - git-format-patch, to come up with the phoney message ID when
   asked to thread, now passes -1 to git_committer_info().  This
   codepath uses only the e-mail part, ignoring the name.  It
   used to barf and die.  The other call in the same program
   when asked to add signed-off-by line based on committer
   identity still passes 1 to make sure it barfs instead of
   adding a bogus s-o-b line.

 - log_ref_write in refs.c, to come up with the name to record
   who initiated the ref update in the reflog, passes -1.  It
   used to barf and die.

The last change means that git-update-ref, git-branch, and
commit walker backends can now be used in a repository with
reflog by somebody who does not have the user identity required
to make a commit.  They all used to barf and die.

I've run tests and all of them seem to pass, and also tried "git
clone" as a user whose GECOS is empty -- git clone works again
now (it was broken when reflog was enabled by default).

Fix seriously broken "git pack-refs"

Do *NOT* try this on a repository you care about:

git pack-refs --all --prune
git pack-refs

because while the first "pack-refs" does the right thing, the second
pack-refs will totally screw you over.

This is because the second one tries to pack only tags; we should
also pack what are already packed -- otherwise we would lose them.

New files in git weren't being downloaded during CVS update

If a repository was checked out via git-cvsserver and then later a new
file is added to the git repository via some other method; a CVS update
wasn't fetching the new file.

It would be reported as a new file as
 A some/dir/newfile.c
but would never appear in the directory.

The problem seems to be that git-cvsserver was treating these two cases
identically, as "A" type results.

1. New file in repository
2. New file locally

In fact, traditionally, case 1 is treated as a "U" result, and case 2
only is treated as an "A" result.  "A", should just report that the file
is added locally and then skip that file during an update as there is
(of course) nothing to send.

In both these cases there is no working revision, so the checking for
"is there no working revision" will return true.  The test for case 2
needs refining to say "if there is no working revision and no upstream
revision".  This patch does just that, leaving case 1 to be handled by
the normal "U" handler.

I've also updated the log message to more accurately describe the
operation.  i.e. that "A" means that content is scheduled for addition;
not that it actually has been added.
