Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.17.0nb2, Package name: git-base-2.17.0nb2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Git is a free and open source distributed version control system
designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with
speed and efficiency.

Git is easy to learn and has a tiny footprint with lightning fast
performance. It outclasses SCM tools like Subversion, CVS, Perforce,
and ClearCase with features like cheap local branching, convenient
staging areas, and multiple workflows.

This package contains only the git program (and subcommands). It does
not contain man pages or the tk-based repository browser.

Git 2.17:

UI, Workflows & Features
* "diff" family of commands learned \ 
"--find-object=<object-id>" option
  to limit the findings to changes that involve the named object.
* "git format-patch" learned to give 72-cols to diffstat, which is
  consistent with other line length limits the subcommand uses for
  its output meant for e-mails.
* The log from "git daemon" can be redirected with a new option; one
  relevant use case is to send the log to standard error (instead of
  syslog) when running it from inetd.
* "git rebase" learned to take "--allow-empty-message" option.
* "git am" has learned the "--quit" option, in addition to the
  existing "--abort" option; having the pair mirrors a few other
  commands like "rebase" and "cherry-pick".
* "git worktree add" learned to run the post-checkout hook, just like
  "git clone" runs it upon the initial checkout.
* "git tag" learned an explicit "--edit" option that allows the
  message given via "-m" and "-F" to be further edited.
* "git fetch --prune-tags" may be used as a handy short-hand for
  getting rid of stale tags that are locally held.
* The new "--show-current-patch" option gives an end-user facing way
  to get the diff being applied when "git rebase" (and "git am")
  stops with a conflict.
* "git add -p" used to offer "/" (look for a matching hunk) as a
  choice, even there was only one hunk, which has been corrected.
  Also the single-key help is now given only for keys that are
  enabled (e.g. help for '/' won't be shown when there is only one
  hunk).
* Since Git 1.7.9, "git merge" defaulted to --no-ff (i.e. even when
  the side branch being merged is a descendant of the current commit,
  create a merge commit instead of fast-forwarding) when merging a
  tag object.  This was appropriate default for integrators who pull
  signed tags from their downstream contributors, but caused an
  unnecessary merges when used by downstream contributors who
  habitually "catch up" their topic branches with tagged releases
  from the upstream.  Update "git merge" to default to --no-ff only
  when merging a tag object that does *not* sit at its usual place in
  refs/tags/ hierarchy, and allow fast-forwarding otherwise, to
  mitigate the problem.
* "git status" can spend a lot of cycles to compute the relation
  between the current branch and its upstream, which can now be
  disabled with "--no-ahead-behind" option.
* "git diff" and friends learned funcname patterns for Go language
  source files.
* "git send-email" learned "--reply-to=<address>" option.
* Funcname pattern used for C# now recognizes "async" keyword.
* In a way similar to how "git tag" learned to honor the pager
  setting only in the list mode, "git config" learned to ignore the
  pager setting when it is used for setting values (i.e. when the
  purpose of the operation is not to "show").

Performance, Internal Implementation, Development Support etc.
* More perf tests for threaded grep
* "perf" test output can be sent to codespeed server.
* The build procedure for perl/ part has been greatly simplified by
  weaning ourselves off of MakeMaker.
* Perl 5.8 or greater has been required since Git 1.7.4 released in
  2010, but we continued to assume some core modules may not exist and
  used a conditional "eval { require <<module>> }"; we no \ 
longer do
  this.  Some platforms (Fedora/RedHat/CentOS, for example) ship Perl
  without all core modules by default (e.g. Digest::MD5, File::Temp,
  File::Spec, Net::Domain, Net::SMTP).  Users on such platforms may
  need to install these additional modules.
* As a convenience, we install copies of Perl modules we require which
  are not part of the core Perl distribution (e.g. Error and
  Mail::Address).  Users and packagers whose operating system provides
  these modules can set NO_PERL_CPAN_FALLBACKS to avoid installing the
  bundled modules.
* In preparation for implementing narrow/partial clone, the machinery
  for checking object connectivity used by gc and fsck has been
  taught that a missing object is OK when it is referenced by a
  packfile specially marked as coming from trusted repository that
  promises to make them available on-demand and lazily.
* The machinery to clone & fetch, which in turn involves packing and
  unpacking objects, has been told how to omit certain objects using
  the filtering mechanism introduced by another topic.  It now knows
  to mark the resulting pack as a promisor pack to tolerate missing
  objects, laying foundation for "narrow" clones.
* The first step to getting rid of mru API and using the
  doubly-linked list API directly instead.
* Retire mru API as it does not give enough abstraction over
  underlying list API to be worth it.
* Rewrite two more "git submodule" subcommands in C.
* The tracing machinery learned to report tweaking of environment
  variables as well.
* Update Coccinelle rules to catch and optimize strbuf_addf(&buf, \ 
"%s", str)
* Prevent "clang-format" from breaking line after function return type.
* The sequencer infrastructure is shared across "git cherry-pick",
  "git rebase -i", etc., and has always spawned "git commit" \ 
when it
  needs to create a commit.  It has been taught to do so internally,
  when able, by reusing the codepath "git commit" itself uses, which
  gives performance boost for a few tens of percents in some sample
  scenarios.
* Push the submodule version of collision-detecting SHA-1 hash
  implementation a bit harder on builders.
* Avoid mmapping small files while using packed refs (especially ones
  with zero size, which would cause later munmap() to fail).
* Conversion from uchar[20] to struct object_id continues.
* More tests for wildmatch functions.
* The code to binary search starting from a fan-out table (which is
  how the packfile is indexed with object names) has been refactored
  into a reusable helper.
* We now avoid using identifiers that clash with C++ keywords.  Even
  though it is not a goal to compile Git with C++ compilers, changes
  like this help use of code analysis tools that targets C++ on our
  codebase.
* The executable is now built in 'script' phase in Travis CI integration,
  to follow the established practice, rather than during 'before_script'
  phase.  This allows the CI categorize the failures better ('failed'
  is project's fault, 'errored' is build environment's).
* Writing out the index file when the only thing that changed in it
  is the untracked cache information is often wasteful, and this has
  been optimized out.
* Various pieces of Perl code we have have been cleaned up.
* Internal API clean-up to allow write_locked_index() optionally skip
  writing the in-core index when it is not modified.

git: updated to 2.16.3

Git v2.16.3 Release Notes

* "git status" after moving a path in the working tree (hence making
  it appear "removed") and then adding with the -N option (hence
  making that appear "added") detected it as a rename, but did not
  report the  old and new pathnames correctly.

* "git commit --fixup" did not allow "-m<message>" \ 
option to be used
  at the same time; allow it to annotate resulting commit with more
  text.

* When resetting the working tree files recursively, the working tree
  of submodules are now also reset to match.

* Fix for a commented-out code to adjust it to a rather old API change
  around object ID.

* When there are too many changed paths, "git diff" showed a warning
  message but in the middle of a line.

* The http tracing code, often used to debug connection issues,
  learned to redact potentially sensitive information from its output
  so that it can be more safely sharable.

* Crash fix for a corner case where an error codepath tried to unlock
  what it did not acquire lock on.

* The split-index mode had a few corner case bugs fixed.

* Assorted fixes to "git daemon".

* Completion of "git merge -s<strategy>" (in contrib/) did not work
  well in non-C locale.

* Workaround for segfault with more recent versions of SVN.

* Recently introduced leaks in fsck have been plugged.

* Travis CI integration now builds the executable in 'script' phase
  to follow the established practice, rather than during
  'before_script' phase.  This allows the CI categorize the failures
  better ('failed' is project's fault, 'errored' is build
  environment's).

git: updated to 2.16.2

Git v2.16.2 Release Notes

Fixes since v2.16.1

 * An old regression in "git describe --all $annotated_tag^0" has been
   fixed.

 * "git svn dcommit" did not take into account the fact that a
   svn+ssh:// URL with a username@ (typically used for pushing) refers
   to the same SVN repository without the username@ and failed when
   svn.pushmergeinfo option is set.

 * "git merge -Xours/-Xtheirs" learned to use our/their version when
   resolving a conflicting updates to a symbolic link.

 * "git clone $there $here" is allowed even when here directory exists
   as long as it is an empty directory, but the command incorrectly
   removed it upon a failure of the operation.

 * "git stash -- <pathspec>" incorrectly blew away untracked files in
   the directory that matched the pathspec, which has been corrected.

 * "git add -p" was taught to ignore local changes to submodules as
   they do not interfere with the partial addition of regular changes
   anyway.
