Subject: What's cooking in git.git (Jan 2022, #03; Thu, 13)
Date: Thu, 13 Jan 2022 16:48:59 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <xmqq35lrf8g4.fsf@gitster.g> (raw)

There are a few "oops, what we merged recently is broken" topics
that still are not in 'master', but otherwise what we have should
be pretty much what we'll have in the final one.

 - I am reasonably happy with ab/refs-errno-cleanup (just one patch)
   that fixes the incorrect state of the code left by the earlier
   parts of the topic that have already been merged during this

 - I am also OK with ab/reftable-build-fixes (two patches), one for
   general type correctness fix, the other for helping older sub-C99

If there are fixes for regressions that we introduced during this
cycle other than these two topics, I certainly am missing them, so
please holler loudly and quickly, hopefully in time for me to tag
the -rc1 tomorrow.

Here are the topics that have been cooking in my tree.  Commits
prefixed with '+' are in 'next' (being in 'next' is a sign that a
topic is stable enough to be used and are candidate to be in a
future release).  Commits prefixed with '-' are only in 'seen',
which means nothing more than that I have found them of interest for
some reason (like "it may have hard-to-resolve conflicts with
another topic already in flight" or "this may turn out to be
useful").  Do not read too much into a topic being in (or not in)
'seen'.  The ones marked with '.' do not appear in any of the
integration branches, but I am still holding onto them.

Copies of the source code to Git live in many repositories, and the
following is a list of the ones I push into or their mirrors.  Some
repositories have only a subset of branches.

With maint, master, next, seen, todo:


With all the integration branches and topics broken out:

Even though the preformatted documentation in HTML and man format
are not sources, they are published in these repositories for
convenience (replace "htmldocs" with "manpages" for the manual

 "git stash" by default triggers its "push" action, but its
 implementation also made "git stash -h" to show short help only for
 "git stash push", which has been corrected.
