Subject: What's cooking in git.git (May 2021, #03; Thu, 20)
Date: Thu, 20 May 2021 12:26:03 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <xmqqtumyulv8.fsf@gitster.g> (raw)

Here are the topics that have been cooking.  Commits prefixed with '-' are
only in 'seen' (formerly 'pu'---proposed updates) while commits prefixed
with '+' are in 'next'.  The ones marked with '.' do not appear in any of
the integration branches, but I am still holding onto them.

Copies of the source code to Git live in many repositories, and the
following is a list of the ones I push into or their mirrors.  Some
repositories have only a subset of branches.

With maint, master, next, seen, todo:


With all the integration branches and topics broken out:

Even though the preformatted documentation in HTML and man format
are not sources, they are published in these repositories for
convenience (replace "htmldocs" with "manpages" for the manual

  (merged to 'next' on 2021-05-16 at 4467131ca3)

  (merged to 'next' on 2021-05-14 at 6d6a81717a)
 + remote-curl: fix clone on sha256 repos

 "git clone" from SHA256 repository by Git built with SHA-1 as the
 default hash algorithm over the dumb HTTP protocol did not
 correctly set up the resulting repository, which has been corrected.

  (merged to 'next' on 2021-05-07 at 0fa60c3af3)

  (merged to 'next' on 2021-05-16 at 2f4f4454ea)
 + t: avoid sed-based chain-linting in some expensive cases

 The "chainlint" feature in the test framework is a handy way to
 catch common mistakes in writing new tests, but tends to get
 expensive.  An knob to selectively disable it has been introduced
 to help running tests that the developer has not modified.

  (merged to 'next' on 2021-05-06 at e5653da568)

 "%(push:<what>)", which has been corrected.

[New Topics]

* ab/send-email-optim (2021-05-13) 9 commits
 - send-email: move trivial config handling to Perl
 - perl: lazily load some common setup code
 - send-email: lazily load modules for a big speedup

 "git send-email" optimization.

 Looking good.
 May want to update with Eric's suggestion.
 cf. <20210512180517.GA11354@dcvr>
 I've squashed in typofixes while queuing.

* zh/ref-filter-atom-type (2021-05-14) 2 commits
  (merged to 'next' on 2021-05-16 at 48fd717185)
 + ref-filter: introduce enum atom_type
 + ref-filter: add objectsize to used_atom

 The code to handle the "--format" option in "for-each-ref" and
 friends made too many string comparisons on %(atom)s used in the
 format string, which has been corrected by converting them into
 enum when the format string is parsed.

 Will cook in 'next'.

* ga/send-email-sendmail-cmd (2021-05-17) 1 commit
 - git-send-email: add option to specify sendmail command

 "git send-email" learned the "--sendmail-cmd" command line option
 and the "sendemail.sendmailCmd" configuration variable, which is a
 more sensible approach than the current way of repurposing the
 "smtp-server" that is meant to name the server to instead name the
 command to talk to the server.

 Will merge to 'next'.

 We historically rejected a very short string as an author name
 while accepting a patch e-mail, which has been loosened.

 Will cook in 'next'.

* wm/rev-parse-path-format-wo-arg (2021-05-17) 2 commits
 - rev-parse: mark die() messages for translation

 "--path-format" option, which was introduced in v2.31 era, which
 has been corrected.

 Will merge to 'next'.

 - fast-export: do not modify memory from get_commit_buffer
 - git-fast-export.txt: clarify why 'verbatim' may not be a good idea
 - fast-export: rename --signed-tags='warn' to 'warn-verbatim'
 - git-fast-import.txt: add missing LF in the BNF

 "git fast-export" offers a way to control how signed tags are
 handled; the mechanism has been extended to allow specifying how
 signed commits are handled as well.

 Expecting a reroll.

* ao/p4-avoid-decoding (2021-04-12) 2 commits
 - git-p4: do not decode data from perforce by default
 - git-p4: avoid decoding more data from perforce

 "git p4" in Python-2 days used to accept a lot more kinds of data
 from Perforce server as uninterrupted byte sequence, but after
 switching to Python-3, too many things are expected to be in UTF-8,
 which broke traditional use cases.

 Waiting for reviews.

* ab/fsck-unexpected-type (2021-04-13) 6 commits
 . fsck: report invalid object type-path combinations
 . fsck: report invalid types recorded in objects
