9 years agodocs: update status --porcelain format

docs: update status --porcelain format

The --porcelain format was originally identical to the
--short format, but designed to be stable as the short
format changed. Since this was written, the short format
picked up a few incompatible niceties, but this description
was never changed.

Let's mention the differences. While we're at it, let's add
some sub-section headings to make the "output" section a
little easier to navigate.

do not read beyond end of malloc'd buffer

With diff.suppress-blank-empty=true, "git diff --word-diff" would
output data that had been read from uninitialized heap memory.
The problem was that fn_out_consume did not account for the
possibility of a line with length 1, i.e., the empty context line
that diff.suppress-blank-empty=true converts from " \n" to "\n".
Since it assumed there would always be a prefix character (the space),
it decremented "len" unconditionally, thus passing len=0 to emit_line,
which would then blindly call emit_line_0 with len=-1 which would
pass that value on to fwrite as SIZE_MAX.  Boom.

send-pack: avoid deadlock on git:// push with failed pack-objects

Commit 09c9957c fixes a deadlock in which pack-objects
fails, the remote end is still waiting for pack data, and we
are still waiting for the remote end to say something (see
that commit for a much more in-depth explanation).

We solved the problem there by making sure the output pipe
is closed on error; thus the remote sees EOF, and proceeds
to complain and close its end of the connection.

However, in the special case of push over git://, we don't
have a pipe, but rather a full-duplex socket, with another
dup()-ed descriptor in place of the second half of the pipe.
In this case, closing the second descriptor signals nothing
to the remote end, and we still deadlock.

This patch calls shutdown() explicitly to signal EOF to the
other side.

Jeff King [Mon, 16 May 2011 06:46:07 +0000 (02:46 -0400)]
connect: treat generic proxy processes like ssh processes

The git_connect function returns two ends of a pipe for
talking with a remote, plus a struct child_process
representing the other end of the pipe. If we have a direct
socket connection, then this points to a special "no_fork"
child process.

The code path for doing git-over-pipes or git-over-ssh sets
up this child process to point to the child git command or
the ssh process. When we call finish_connect eventually, we
check wait() on the command and report its return value.

The code path for git://, on the other hand, always sets it
to no_fork. In the case of a direct TCP connection, this
makes sense; we have no child process. But in the case of a
proxy command (configured by core.gitproxy), we do have a
child process, but we throw away its pid, and therefore
ignore its return code.

Instead, let's keep that information in the proxy case, and
respect its return code, which can help catch some errors
(though depending on your proxy command, it will be errors
reported by the proxy command itself, and not propagated
from git commands. Still, it is probably better to propagate
such errors than to ignore them).

It also means that the child_process field can reliably be
used to determine whether the returned descriptors are
actually a full-duplex socket, which means we should be
using shutdown() instead of a simple close.

reason to disallow it, as it works just fine. It is the
reverse of a cherry-pick of a root commit, which is already
allowed.

We do have to tweak one check on whether we have a merge
commit, which assumed we had at least one parent.

The merge-recursive strategy already handles root commits;
it cherry-picks the difference between the empty tree and
the root commit's tree.

However, for external strategies, we dereference NULL and

Felipe Contreras [Tue, 10 May 2011 12:20:39 +0000 (15:20 +0300)]
git-completion: fix regression in zsh support

The zsh support of git-completion script in contrib/ is broken for current
versions of zsh, and does not notice when there's a subcommand.

For example: "git log origi<TAB>" gives no completions because it would
try to find a "git origi..." command. This will be fixed by zsh 4.3.12,
but for now we can workaround it by backporting the same fix as zsh folks
implemented.

The problem started after commit v1.7.4-rc0~11^2~2 (bash: get
--pretty=m<tab> completion to work with bash v4), which introduced
_get_comp_words_by_ref() that comes from bash-completion[1] scripts, and
relies on the 'words' variable.

However, it turns out 'words' is a special variable used by zsh
completion. From zshcompwid(1):

  [...] the parameters are reset on each function exit (including nested
  function calls from within the completion widget) to the values they had
  when the function was entered.

As a result, subcommand words are lost.  Ouch.

This is now fixed in the latest master branch of zsh[2] by simply defining
'words' as hidden (typeset -h), which removes the special meaning inside
the emulated bash function. So let's do the same.

Jonathan Nieder helped on the commit message.

send-pack: unbreak push over stateless rpc

Commit 09c9957 (send-pack: avoid deadlock when pack-object
dies early, 2011-04-25) attempted to fix a hang in the
stateless rpc case by closing a file descriptor early, but
we still need that descriptor.

Basically the deadlock can happen when pack-objects fails,
and the descriptor to upstream is left open. We never send
the pack, so the upstream is left waiting for us to say
something, and we are left waiting for upstream to close the
connection.

In the non-rpc case, our descriptor points straight to the
upstream. We hand it off to run-command, which takes
ownership and closes the descriptor after pack-objects
finishes (whether it succeeds or not).

Commit 09c9957 tried to emulate that in the rpc case. That
isn't right, though. We actually have a descriptor going
back to the remote-helper, and we need to keep using it
after pack-objects is finished. Closing it early completely
breaks pushing via smart-http.

We still need to do something on error to signal the
remote-helper that we won't be sending any pack data
(otherwise we get the deadlock).  In an ideal world, we
would send a special packet back that says "Sorry, there was
an error". But the remote-helper doesn't understand any such
packet, so the best we can do is close the descriptor and
let it report that we hung up unexpectedly.

Pass empty file to p4merge where no base is suitable.

Modify the p4merge client command to pass a reference to an empty file
instead of the local file when no base revision available.

In the situation where a merge tries to add a file from one branch
into a branch that already contains that file (by name), p4merge
currently seems to have successfully automatically resolved the
'conflict' when it is opened (correctly if the files differed by
just whitespace for example) but leaves the save button disabled. This
means the user of the p4merge client cannot commit the resolved
changes back to disk and merely exits, leaving the original
(merge-conflicted) file intact on the disk.

Provide an empty base file to p4merge so that it leaves the save
button enabled.  This will allow saving of the auto-resolution to
disk.

10 years agomerge-one-file: fix broken merges with alternate work trees
Jeff King [Fri, 29 Apr 2011 22:24:32 +0000 (18:24 -0400)]
merge-one-file: fix broken merges with alternate work trees

The merge-one-file tool predates the invention of
GIT_WORK_TREE. By the time GIT_WORK_TREE was invented, most
people were using the merge-recursive strategy, which
handles resolving internally. Therefore these features have
had very little testing together.

For the most part, merge-one-file just works with
GIT_WORK_TREE; most of its heavy lifting is done by plumbing
commands which do respect GIT_WORK_TREE properly. The one
exception is a shell redirection which touches the worktree
directly, writing results to the wrong place in the presence
of a GIT_WORK_TREE variable.

This means that merges won't even fail; they will silently
produce incorrect results, throwing out the entire "theirs"
side of files which need content-level merging!

This patch makes merge-one-file chdir to the toplevel of the
working tree (and exit if we don't have one). This most
closely matches the assumption made by the original script
(before separate work trees were invented), and matches what
happens when the script is called as part of a merge
strategy.

While we're at it, we'll also error-check the call to cat.
Merging a file in a subdirectory could in fact fail, as the
redirection relies on the "checkout-index" call just prior
to create leading directories. But we never noticed, since
we ignored the error return from running cat.

add tests for merge-index / merge-one-file

There were no tests for either, except a brief use in
t1200-tutorial.

These tools are not used much these days, as most people
use the merge-recursive strategy, which handles everything
internally. However, they are used by the "octopus" and
"resolve" strategies, as well as any custom strategies
or merge scripts people have built around them.

For example, together with read-tree, they are the simplest
way to do a basic content-level merge without checking out
the entire repository contents beforehand.

This script adds a basic test of the tools to perform one
content-level merge. It also shows a failure of the tools to
work properly in the face of GIT_WORK_TREE or core.worktree.

"add -p": work-around an old laziness that does not coalesce hunks

Since 0beee4c (git-add--interactive: remove hunk coalescing, 2008-07-02),
"git add--interactive" behaves lazily and passes overlapping hunks to the
underlying "git apply" without coalescing.  This was partially corrected
by 7a26e65 (its partial revert, 2009-05-16), but overlapping hunks are
still passed when the patch is edited.

Teach "git apply" the --allow-overlap option that disables a safety
feature that avoids misapplication of patches by not applying patches
to overlapping hunks, and pass this option form "add -p" codepath.

Do not even advertise the option, as this is merely a workaround, and the
correct fix is to make "add -p" correctly coalesce adjacent patch hunks.
