Subject: [PATCH v5] [GSOC] cherry-pick: use better advice message
Date: Mon, 16 Aug 2021 00:55:06 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <pull.1010.v5.git.1629075306706.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.1010.v4.git.1628936863733.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

From: ZheNing Hu <adlternative@gmail.com>

"git cherry-pick", upon seeing a conflict, says:

hint: after resolving the conflicts, mark the corrected paths
hint: with 'git add <paths>' or 'git rm <paths>'
hint: and commit the result with 'git commit'

as if running "git commit" to conclude the resolution of
this single step were the end of the story.  This stems from
the fact that the command originally was to pick a single
commit and not a range of commits, and the message was
written back then and has not been adjusted.

When picking a range of commits and the command stops with a
conflict in the middle of the range, however, after
resolving the conflict and (optionally) recording the result
with "git commit", the user has to run "git cherry-pick
--continue" to have the rest of the range dealt with,
"--skip" to drop the current commit, or "--abort" to discard
the series.

Suggest use of "git cherry-pick --continue/--skip/--abort"
so that the message also covers the case where a range of
commits are being picked.

Similarly, this optimization can be applied to git revert,
suggest use of "git revert --continue/--skip/--abort" so
that the message also covers the case where a range of
commits are being reverted.

It is worth mentioning that now we use advice() to print
the content of GIT_CHERRY_PICK_HELP in print_advice(), each
line of output will start with "hint: ".

    [GSOC] cherry-pick: use better advice message
    
    The cherry-pick and revert advice message are only suitable for picking
    one commit or reverting one commit, but not for multiple commits. So
    correct the advice message to have the rest of the range dealt with.
    
    v7:
    https://lore.kernel.org/git/pull.1010.v4.git.1628936863733.gitgitgadget@gmail.com/
    
    v7-->v8:
    
     1. Modify the commit message to make it more in line with the
        specification.

     -    In the past, git cherry-pick would print such advice when
     -    there was a conflict:
     +    "git cherry-pick", upon seeing a conflict, says:
      
          hint: after resolving the conflicts, mark the corrected paths

          hint: and commit the result with 'git commit'
      
     -    But in fact, when we want to cherry-pick multiple commits,
     -    we should not use "git commit" after resolving conflicts, which
     -    will make Git generate some errors. We should recommend users to
     -    use `git cherry-pick --continue`, `git cherry-pick --abort`, just
     -    like git rebase does.
