Subject: [PATCH v3 0/8] Allow overriding the default name of the default branch
Date: Tue, 23 Jun 2020 22:33:22 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <pull.656.v3.git.1592951611.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.656.v2.git.1592225416.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

A growing number of open source projects aims to avoid the branch name 
master due to its negative connotation. See [1] for an existing discussion
on this. The links [2], [3], and [4] describe community-driven ways for
users to rename their default branches or use template edits to set a new
default branch name.

By necessity, existing repositories require a lot of manual work to move
away from that branch name, but it should be much easier for new
repositories.

This patch series allows overriding the branch name being used for new
repositories' main branch. This can be configured via init.defaultBranch.

The initial patch was started by newcomer Don Goodman-Wilson, as well as the
bigger change that morphed into #655, where we demonstrate how to change
Git's hard-coded default branch name for new repositories to main based on
this here patch series, verifying the approach. Thanks for the contribution!

This series DOES NOT change the default automatically, but only provides an
opt-in mechanism for interested users. The plan for that is to convert the
test scripts incrementally (by introducing GIT_TEST_DEFAULT_MAIN_BRANCH_NAME
, which overrides init.defaultBranch, and then converting the tricky test
scripts first, one by one, using that environment variable).

Changes since v2:

 * Dropped the fast-export patches, as they have been superseded by Peff's 
   jk/fast-export-anonym
   [https://github.com/gitgitgadget/git/commits/jk/fast-export-anonym].
   
   
 * Adjusted the fmt-merge-msg patch so as to not special-case master anymore
   (instead of special-casing a specific "main" branch).
   
   
 * Modified the git submodule patch so that it uses origin/HEAD instead of
   trying to look for a remote branch with the name indicated by 
   init.defaultBranch.
   
   

Changes since v1:

 * The modifications to respect GIT_TEST_DEFAULT_BRANCH_NAME have been
   backed out from this patch series, as they are only relevant once we
   start converting the test suite to accommodate for a new default main
   branch name.
   
   
 * An error message that started with an upper-case letter was downcased.
   
   
 * git_default_branch_name()'s logic was simplified by replacing an if ...
   else ... by a ternary assignment.
   
   
 * The git_default_branch_name() function was renamed to 
   git_main_branch_name() and a corresponding repo_main_branch_name() was
   introduced.
   
   
 * The "init" commit message's first paragraph now elaborates a little bit
   on the reasoning why projects want to move away from the current default
   branch name.
   
   
 * The "init" commit was split into two.
   
   
 * There are now two config settings: init.defaultBranch (defining the
   branch name to use when initializing new repositories) and 
   core.mainBranch (which is now configured by init_db(), declaring what the
   name of the main branch is in this repository).
   
   
 * The commits were re-ordered to introduce the concept of core.mainBranch 
   first because technically, this is something that we could do even
   without changing git init at all.
   
   
 * git fast-export --anonymize now always uses the ref name ref0 for the
   main branch, no matter whether it was overridden or whether the fall-back
   is in effect.
   
   
 * The code comment regarding anonymizing the main branch to ref0 in git
   fast-export --anonymize was enhanced.
   
   
 * A new patch was added to rename core.mainBranch if the main branch is
   renamed via git branch -m.
   
   
 * Added a patch that introduces support for git init
   --main-branch=<branch-name>.
   
   
 * Where possible, I added tests (although I did not try to extend test
   coverage to all changes: the send-pack.c/transport-helper.c patch only
   adds a test for the send-pack.c adjustment, for example).

     -    send-pack/transport-helper: respect `core.mainBranch`

     -    When mentioning the main branch name in an error message, we want to go

     -    own, hard-coded default when none was configured explicitly.

     +    message suggesting to push the `master` branch.
     +
     +    However, we want to step away from making that branch any more special
     +    than any other branch, so let's reword that message to mention no branch
     +    in particular.

       ## Commit message ##
     -    submodule: use the correct default for the main branch name
     +    submodule: use a better fall-back for missing remote.<name>.branch
      
     -    To allow for overriding the default branch name, we have introduced a
     -    config setting. With this patch, the `git submodule` command learns
     -    about this, too.
     +    When `remote.<name>.branch` is not configured, `git submodule update`
     +    currently falls back to using the branch name `master`. A much better
     +    idea, however, is to use `HEAD`: on all Git servers running reasonably
     +    recent Git versions, the symref `HEAD` points to the main branch.
     +
     +    Note: t7419 demonstrates that there _might_ be use cases out there that
     +    _expect_ `git submodule update --remote` to update submodules to the
     +    remote `master` branch even if the remote `HEAD` points to another
     +    branch. Arguably, this patch makes the behavior more intuitive, but
     +    there is a slight possibility that this might cause regressions in
     +    obscure setups.

     -    fmt-merge-msg: introduce a way to override the main branch name
     +    init: allow setting the default for the initial branch name via the config
      
     -    There is a growing number of projects and companies desiring to change
     -    the main branch name of their repositories (see e.g.
     -    https://twitter.com/mislav/status/1270388510684598272 for background on
     -    this).
     +    We just introduced the command-line option
     +    `--initial-branch=<branch-name>` to allow initializing a new repository
     +    with a different initial branch than the hard-coded one.
      
     -    However, there are a couple of hard-coded spots in Git's source code
     -    that make this endeavor harder than necessary. For example, when
     -    formatting the commit message for merge commits, Git appends "into
     -    <branch-name>" unless the current branch is the `master` branch.
     +    To allow users to override the initial branch name more permanently
     +    (i.e. without having to specify the name manually for each and every
     +    `git init` invocation), let's introduce the `init.defaultBranch` config
     +    setting.
      
     -    Clearly, this is not what one wants when already having gone through all
     -    the steps to manually rename the main branch (and taking care of all the
     -    fall-out such as re-targeting existing Pull Requests).

     -    Let's introduce a way to override Git's hard-coded default:
     -    `core.mainBranch`.
     -
     -    We will start supporting this config option in the `git fmt-merge-msg`
     -    command and successively adjust all other places where the main branch
     -    name is hard-coded.

     +    learned to respect `init.defaultBranch` to choose a different initial
          branch name. We now really want that branch name to be used as a

     -    At the same time, we also want to make sure that `core.mainBranch` is
     -    set correctly, reflecting the name of the main branch. In case we detect
     -    a main branch, we do have to do that explicitly, otherwise `init_db()`
     -    will already have done that for us.

     -    remote: learn about the possibly-overridden default main branch name
     +    remote: use the configured default branch name when appropriate
      
          When guessing the default branch name of a remote, and there are no refs
          to guess from, we want to go with the preference specified by the user
     -    for the fall-back, i.e. the default name to be used for the main branch
     -    of new repositories (because as far as the user is concerned, a remote
     -    that has no branches yet is a new repository).
     +    for the fall-back, i.e. the default name to be used for the initial
     +    branch of new repositories (because as far as the user is concerned, a
     +    remote that has no branches yet is a new repository).
     +
     +    At the same time, when talking to an older Git server that does not
     +    report a symref for `HEAD` (but instead reports a commit hash), let's
     +    try to guess the configured default branch name first. If it does not
     +    match the reported commit hash, let's fall back to `master` as before.
