Subject: [PATCH v4 0/2] [v2.24.0-rc0 BUG] fetch.writeCommitGraph fails on first fetch
Date: Thu, 24 Oct 2019 13:40:40 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <pull.415.v4.git.1571924442.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.415.v3.git.1571919488.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

UPDATE for V2: We now know the full repro, and a test is added. Thanks
Szeder and Peff for your insights!

UPDATE in V3: Cleaned up the commit messages and some test details.

UPDATE in V4: There is an unfortunate interaction with GIT_TEST_COMMIT_GRAPH
that requires an update to the test. Sorry for not noticing this earlier.
Thanks, Johannes for pointing it out!

While dogfooding, Johannes found a bug in the fetch.writeCommitGraph config
behavior. While his example initially happened during a clone with
--recurse-submodules, (UPDATE) and the submodule is important, but
--recurse-submodules is not:

$ git clone <url> test
$ cd test
$ git -c fetch.writeCommitGraph=true fetch origin
Computing commit graph generation numbers: 100% (12/12), done.
BUG: commit-graph.c:886: missing parent <hash1> for commit <hash2>
Aborted (core dumped)

In the repo I had cloned, there were really 60 commits to scan, but only 12
were in the list to write when calling compute_generation_numbers(). A
commit in the list expects to see a parent, but that parent is not in the
list. The simple example I used for my testing was 
https://github.com/derrickstolee/numbers. Thie repo HAS A SUBMODULE, I just
forgot. Sorry for derailing the investigation somewhat.

The details above are the start of the commit message for [PATCH 1/2],
including a test that fails when fetching after cloning a repo with a
submodule.

In [PATCH 2/2], I actually have the fix. I tried to include as much detail
as I could for how I investigated the problem and why I think this is the
right solution. I added details that have come from the on-list discussion,
including what the submodule code is doing and why REACHABLE is no longer
used in commit-reach.c.

Thanks, -Stolee
