These issues were noticed in 
https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/issues/2466, fulfilling my hope that
Git for Windows' exposure of the built-in git add -i/git add -p as an
experimental option would attract testers.

Johannes Schindelin (2):
  built-in add -i: do not try to `patch`/`diff` an empty list of files
  built-in add -i: accept open-ended ranges again

From: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@gmx.de>

When the user does not select any files to `patch` or `diff`, there is
no need to call `run_add_p()` on them.

Even worse: we _have_ to avoid calling `parse_pathspec()` with an empty
list because that would trigger this error:

	BUG: pathspec.c:557: PATHSPEC_PREFER_CWD requires arguments

So let's avoid doing any work on a list of files that is empty anyway.

This fixes https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/issues/2466.

From: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@gmx.de>

The interactive `add` command allows selecting multiple files for some
of its sub-commands, via unique prefixes, indices or index ranges.

When re-implementing `git add -i` in C, we even added a code comment
talking about ranges with a missing end index, such as `2-`, but the
code did not actually accept those, as pointed out in
https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/issues/2466#issuecomment-574142760.

Let's fix this, and add a test case to verify that this stays fixed
forever.

Makes sense.  No tests?

Good.  We do not allow "everything up to N" with "-N", so covering
"N and everything after" with "N-" is sufficient.

Even worse, `-N` means "toggle N off". But that can't be fixed easily as
it has been part of the UI for ages.

Do we really need tests here? ;-)

Honestly, I would deem the likelihood of this to get broken again very
low, and the effort for writing a regression test relatively high...

If you insist, I will add some, of course, but not today.

Ciao,

There is no loss.  "N-" is useful because you do not necessarily
know what the maximum is, but "everything up to N" will always be
"1-N" and you do not know what the minimum is.

So, there is not even worse there at all ;-)
