Ah, the good old *flips table* codepath.  That'd be a fun area of the
code to work on.  ;-)

To be serious, though, thanks for the extra info.

Oh, is the primary difference here that you're complaining about a bug
in git grep, where without --cached it mixes worktree search results
with index search results?  That's just a flat out bug that should be
fixed.  See
grep is supposed to search the working tree by default, and *just* the
working tree -- as documented from the beginning.  If you specify
--cached, it'll search the index.  If you specify revisions, then it
searches revisions.  There is not supposed to currently be mixing and
matching of searches from multiple areas.  Someone could add such an
ability to search multiple locations, but then the user should have to
specify that behavior.  The fact that sparse-checkouts search multiple
areas is a *bug*, regardless of sparse indexes or not, regardless of
"behavior A" or "behavior B", etc.

The interesting bit, is whether `git grep ... REVISION` should
restrict to sparsity paths.  Unlike the working tree, REVISION
probably has many paths that don't match the sparsity paths.  Same for
--cached.  That part makes sense to make configurable.

So, I guess my question is, after the bug in git grep is fixed that
I've been railing about for nearly a year (and sadly got tied up in
other changes Matheus wanted to make so that the rest could be made
configurable), then do you consider the rest of git grep different
from git diff?

The core functionality of sparse-checkout has always been only
partially implemented.  See the last few lines of t7012.  See the bugs
over the years with the merge machinery and SKIP_WORKTREE entries.
See the bug reports with git-stash.  See my long explanation to
Matheus on how git-grep without --cached or revisions is flat broken
in sparse-checkouts[1].  See Junio's comments about how "the sparse
checkout 'feature' itself is a hack'"[2] and that folks working in
other areas didn't need to provide full support for it.

So, that raises the question -- what else is "core functionality of
sparse-checkout" besides what I listed above?  I reject the idea that
whatever is currently implemented is the bright line.  The rest is
certainly up for discussion, but I don't like using the idea of
current behavior as the litmus test for whether something is core
functionality.  In fact this is the very reason why I so strongly
requested the huge warning in the sparse-checkout documentation[3].


And I'm arguing a change in rm behavior should be core functionality
of sparse-checkout; more on that below.

Users cannot update files outside their sparsity paths using add,
though.  Even if they create the file from scratch with the necessary
changes and run 'git add' on it.  And that's core functionality.
Users must first change their sparsity paths before trying to add such
files.  If we were to allow them, I think things get weird.

I think that's a good model.  We should require them to do the same
for removing.  If they come to us requesting a way to delete paths
outside their sparse-checkout, we give them the same answer that we do
for updating paths outside their sparse-checkout: simply change your
sparsity definition first.  It's a simple solution.  No
configurability is required here, IMO, and it makes commands more
consistent with each other.

Of course, that's the high-level explanation.  Digging in to the
details, there we should also change or add warning/error messages for
both 'add' and 'rm' in some cases; see my original email in this
thread for that discussion.

All the delay was based on the configurability (which I initially
thought was needed too).  But after further recent investigation, I
think configurability for rm's behavior is just wrong.  rm should
restrict to sparse paths, just like add does.  I agree on delaying any
new features or changes that require configurability (and I agree with
you that the sparse-index could play a role in how to configure
things).  I just think that en/stash-apply-sparse-checkout and a
modified version of mt/rm-sparse-checkout are two cases that don't
require configurability and could go in first.

I also think pulling the bugfix out of mt/grep-sparse-checkout (don't
mix worktree and index searches) and merging it could happen now,
while waiting off on all the other bits that require configuration.

Ooh, interesting idea.  We might have to discuss the name a bit; I'm
worried folks might struggle to differentiate between that command and
`git sparse-checkout {init,disable}`.

I'm totally willing to hold off on bigger changes, new features, and
anything that requires configurability.  I'm also willing to hold off
on any bug fixes that I have reason to think might conflict with your

However, I think that several bug fixes would be independent of your
current work.  For example, the already-submitted
en/stash-apply-sparse-checkout from a month ago (which I think should
be merged to master), and fixing up reset --hard.  You know more about
me than your changes, though; do you have reason to think these might

I still think the flag should be a git global flag (like --no-pager,
--work-tree, or --git-dir), not a subcommand flag, so rev-list's
--dense flag isn't a collision even if we pick --dense/--sparse.

--full-tree and --sparse-tree are good considerations though to add to
the list we've come up with so far:

You've noted multiple times that you're leery of even providing such a
configuration option -- and you provided good rationale to be worried
about it.  So, if we did use this escape hatch to make it sane to
allow such a configuration option, I'd say this is probably one case
where we do not allow this advice to be turned off.  (In fact, we'd
not only avoid implementing it, we'd be careful to document that it's
intentionally not implemented so that someone doesn't come along later
and assume we just overlooked it.)

But that's still an 'if' and is just an idea I threw out there for us
to consider over the next year or two; we may well require the short
command-line option every time as you say.

You're dodging the question.  ;-)  We already agree on the behavior
for sparse-checkouts with worktrees when partial clones are in effect;
it seems obvious any newly added worktree needs to also be sparse in
such a case.  The whole question was what about the non-partial-clone
case.  I'm of the opinion that it makes sense there too (if for no
other reason than making it easy to explain and understand what
worktree does without having to provide a list of cases to users), but
was curious if others had thoughts on the matter.  Maybe you don't
care since you always use partial clones?

Yeah, good idea.  This thread has a lot of that information, so I'd be
happy to start up such a document after I both hear back from Matheus
and hear back from you on my rm & grep bug fix ideas.
