Subject: [PATCH v3] t6030: add test for git bisect skip started with --term* arguments
Date: Wed, 28 Apr 2021 18:38:06 +0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Trygve Aaberge reported git bisect breakage when the bisection
is started with --term* arguments (--term-new and --term-old).

For example, suppose that we have repository with 10 commits, and we
start the bisection from HEAD to first commit (HEAD~9) with:

  $ git bisect start --term-new=fixed --term-old=unfixed HEAD HEAD~9

The bisection then stopped at HEAD~5 (fifth commit), and we choose
to skip (git bisect skip). The HEAD should now at HEAD~4 (sixth commit).
In the breakage, however, the HEAD after skipping stayed at HEAD~5
(not changed).

The breakage is caused by forgetting to read '.git/BISECT_TERMS' during
implementation of `'bisect skip' subcommand in C.

Let's add the test to catch the breakage. Now that the corresponding
fix had been integrated, flip the switch to test_expect_success.

Reported-by: Trygve Aaberge <>
Signed-off-by: Bagas Sanjaya <>

 Changes from v2 [1]:
   * remove double quotes inside test name
   * double-quote HASH_SKIPPED_FROM and HASH_SKIPPED_TO in the
     test comparison line
   * rename test name to be simpler
   * commit message now includes proper explanation why git bisect skip
     is currently broken
   * because the fix to the breakage had just been landed on seen, flip
     the switch to test_expect_success.
   * give credit to Trygve in form of Reported-by
