Subject: [PATCH v2 0/2] rev-parse options for absolute or relative paths
Date: Fri,  9 Oct 2020 19:15:09 +0000
Message-ID: <20201009191511.267461-1-sandals@crustytoothpaste.net> (raw)

There are a bunch of different situations in which one would like to
have an absolute and canonical or a relative path from Git.  In many of
these cases, these values are already available from git rev-parse, but
some values only come in one form or another.

Many operating systems, such as macOS, lack a built-in realpath command
that can canonicalize paths properly, and additionally some programming
languages, like Go, currently do as well.  It's therefore helpful for us
to provide a generic way to request that a path is fully canonicalized
before using it.  Since users may wish for a relative path, we can
provide one of those as well.

Changes from v1:

* Add a function to handle missing trailing components when
  canonicalizing paths and use it.
* Improve commit messages.
* Fix broken && chain.
* Fix situation where relative paths are not relative.

  abspath: add a function to resolve paths with missing components
  rev-parse: add option for absolute or relative path formatting
