Change from last version:

 1. Use Peff's processing method.
 2. Add tests for atoms %(objectname), %(rest), and modified the test
    method.
 3. Merge two check block into one.

From: ZheNing Hu <adlternative@gmail.com>

When `--batch` used with `--batch-all-objects`,
with some format atoms like %(objectname), %(rest)
or even no atoms may cause Git exit and report
"object xxx changed type!?".

E.g. `git cat-file --batch="batman" --batch-all-objects`

This is because we did not get the object type through
oid_object_info_extended(), it's composed of two
situations:

1. Since object_info is empty, skip_object_info is
set to true, We skipped collecting the object type.

2. The formatting atom like %(objectname) does not require
oid_object_info_extended() to collect object types.

The correct way to deal with it is to swap the order
of setting skip_object_info and setting typep. This
will ensure that we must get the type of the object
when using --batch.

 Because the two "if (opt->all_objects)" block
 are redundant, merge them into one, to provide
 better readability.

Thanks, this explanation and the patch make sense, and I'd be happy if
we take it as-is. But in the name of GSoC, let me offer a few polishing
tips.

The commit message hints at the root of the problem, but doesn't say it
explicitly. Which is: because setting skip_object_info depends on seeing
that the object_info is empty, we can't add items to it after setting
that flag. And the code path for --batch does that, hence re-ordering
them is the solution.

It might also be worth noting that the bug was present from when the
skip_object_info code was initially added in 845de33a5b (cat-file: avoid
noop calls to sha1_object_info_extended, 2016-05-18).

OK, we're checking the output of --batch-all-objects versus taking the
object list from the input. We can depend on the ordering being
identical between the two because --batch-all-objects sorts. Good.

This one is rather curious. It definitely shows the bug, but I can't
imagine why %(rest) would be useful with --batch-all-objects, since its
purpose is to show the rest of the input line (and there are no input
lines!).

That might be a problem later if we change the behavior (e.g., to say
"%(rest) does not make sense with --batch-all-objects"). But I'm also OK
leaving it for now; somebody later can dig up this commit via git-blame.

> +test_expect_success 'cat-file --batch="batman" with --batch-all-objects will work' '

And this one is a more extreme version of the "%(objectname)" one. It's
useful as a regression test because we might later change the
optimization so that %(objectname) ends up filling in the other object
info.

There's a subtle dependency here on the "objects" file from the earlier
test. In such a case, we'll often split that out as a separate setup
step like:

  test_expect_success 'set up object list for --batch-all-objects tests' '
	git -C all-two cat-file --batch-all-objects --batch-check="%(objectname)" >objects
  '

That makes it more clear that all three of the other tests are doing the
same thing (just with different formats), and can be reordered, removed,
etc, later if we wanted to. So not a correctness thing, but rather just
communicating the structure of the tests to later readers.

Funny indentation of the commit message. :)

I think this is worth doing, and I agree the end-result is easier to
read. Really minor nit, but I probably wouldn't have said "redundant"
here. The conditionals themselves are redundant, but not the blocks.
Maybe: There are two "if (opt->all_objects)" blocks next to each other;
merge them into one to provide better readability.

(not a huge deal, as I think seeing the patch helps explain what is
going on. But again, just trying to offer polishing advice for future
patches)

Um, let's rewrite the commit message, I don't know if this is accurate:

[GSOC] cat-file: fix --batch report changed-type bug

When `--batch` used with `--batch-all-objects`,
with some format atoms like %(objectname), %(rest)
or even no atoms may cause Git exit and report
"object xxx changed type!?".

E.g. `git cat-file --batch="batman" --batch-all-objects`

The bug was present from when the skip_object_info code
was initially added in 845de33a5b (cat-file: avoid
noop calls to sha1_object_info_extended, 2016-05-18).

This is because we did not get the object type through
oid_object_info_extended(), it's composed of two
situations:

1. all_objects will be set to true when we use
`--batch-all-objects`, seeing that object_info
is empty, skip_object_info will be to true,
`oid_object_info_extended()` will not get the
type of the object.

2. The formatting atom like %(objectname) does
not require oid_object_info_extended() to collect
object types.

print_contents will be set to true when we use
`--batch`, which can make object_info non-empty,
so the solution is to swap the code order of it
and checking if object_info is empty, which will
ensure that we must get the type of the object
when using --batch.

I wanted to argue that print_object_or_die() will use data->rest originally.
But --batch-all-objects and --textconv and --filter are incompatible.
So your idea is reasonable: %(rest) with --batch-all-objects is useless.

Yes, I think this feature can be completed later.(not in this patch)

Yes, it does not use atoms, so it is the most special.

I don't see any inaccuracies there. I do think we could explain it a bit
more succinctly. I'll give my attempt, and then you can pick and choose
which parts to include between ours. :)

  Subject: cat-file: handle trivial --batch format with --batch-all-objects

  The --batch code to print an object assumes we found out the type of
  the object from calling oid_object_info_extended(). This is true for
  the default format, but even in a custom format, we manually modify
  the object_info struct to ask for the type.

  This assumption was broken by 845de33a5b (cat-file: avoid noop calls
  to sha1_object_info_extended, 2016-05-18). That commit skips the call
  to oid_object_info_extended() entirely when --batch-all-objects is in
  use, and the custom format does not include any placeholders that
  require calling it.

  This results in an error when we try to confirm that the type didn't
  change:

    $ git cat-file --batch=batman --batch-all-objects
    batman
    fatal: object 000023961a0c02d6e21dc51ea3484ff71abf1c74 changed type!?

  and also has other subtle effects (e.g., we'd fail to stream a blob,
  since we don't realize it's a blog in the first place).

  We can fix this by flipping the order of the setup. The check for "do
  we need to get the object info" must come _after_ we've decided
  whether we need to look up the type.

Yes, you wrote it more concisely. I don't need to write out the details of
those variables. I just need to tell the reader the introduction of
skip_object_info will break the assumption of --batch that we have found
the object type.

Or when the custom format only include placeholders like %(objectname) or
%(rest), oid_object_info_extended() will not get the type of the object.

The --batch code to print an object assumes we found out the type of
the object from calling oid_object_info_extended(). This is true for
the default format, but even in a custom format, we manually modify
the object_info struct to ask for the type.

This assumption was broken by 845de33a5b (cat-file: avoid noop calls
to sha1_object_info_extended, 2016-05-18). That commit skips the call
to oid_object_info_extended() entirely when --batch-all-objects is in
use, and the custom format does not include any placeholders that
require calling it.

Or when the custom format only include placeholders like %(objectname) or
%(rest), oid_object_info_extended() will not get the type of the object.

This results in an error when we try to confirm that the type didn't
change:

$ git cat-file --batch=batman --batch-all-objects
batman
fatal: object 000023961a0c02d6e21dc51ea3484ff71abf1c74 changed type!?

and also has other subtle effects (e.g., we'd fail to stream a blob,
since we don't realize it's a blob in the first place).

We can fix this by flipping the order of the setup. The check for "do
we need to get the object info" must come _after_ we've decided
whether we need to look up the type.

There are two "if (opt->all_objects)" blocks next
to each other, merge them into one to provide better

Yeah, that's what I was trying to get at with "placeholders that require
calling it", but I couldn't think of a less awkward way to say that. :)
Spelling it out is probably a good idea.
