Subject: [PATCH 1/9] fetch: optionally allow disabling FETCH_HEAD update
Date: Thu, 06 Aug 2020 16:30:16 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <83401c52002716084b9c53a77c9d57b6009f84e2.1596731424.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.696.git.1596731424.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

From: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>

If you run fetch but record the result in remote-tracking branches,
and either if you do nothing with the fetched refs (e.g. you are
merely mirroring) or if you always work from the remote-tracking
refs (e.g. you fetch and then merge origin/branchname separately),
you can get away with having no FETCH_HEAD at all.

Teach "git fetch" a command line option "--[no-]write-fetch-head"
and "fetch.writeFetchHEAD" configuration variable.  Without either,
the default is to write FETCH_HEAD, and the usual rule that the
command line option defeats configured default applies.

Note that under "--dry-run" mode, FETCH_HEAD is never written;
otherwise you'd see list of objects in the file that you do not
actually have.  Passing `--write-fetch-head` does not force `git
fetch` to write the file.

Also note that this option is explicitly passed when "git pull"
internally invokes "git fetch", so that those who configured their
"git fetch" not to write FETCH_HEAD would not be able to break the
cooperation between these two commands.  "git pull" must see what
"git fetch" got recorded in FETCH_HEAD to work correctly.
