Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.13.2, Package name: git-base-2.13.2, 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.

 2017-06-25 05:15:11 by Makoto Fujiwara | Files touched by this commit (3) | Log message: Updated devel/git-{base,contrib,docs,git-gitk} to 2.13.2 -------------------------------------------------------- Git v2.13.2 Release Notes ========================= Fixes since v2.13.1 ------------------- * The "collision detecting" SHA-1 implementation shipped with 2.13.1 was still broken on some platforms. Update to the upstream code again to take their fix. * "git checkout --recurse-submodules" did not quite work with a submodule that itself has submodules. * Introduce the BUG() macro to improve die("BUG: ..."). * The "run-command" API implementation has been made more robust against dead-locking in a threaded environment. * A recent update to t5545-push-options.sh started skipping all the tests in the script when a web server testing is disabled or unavailable, not just the ones that require a web server. Non HTTP tests have been salvaged to always run in this script. * "git clean -d" used to clean directories that has ignored files, even though the command should not lose ignored ones without "-x". "git status --ignored" did not list ignored and untracked files without "-uall". These have been corrected. * The timestamp of the index file is now taken after the file is closed, to help Windows, on which a stale timestamp is reported by fstat() on a file that is opened for writing and data was written but not yet closed. * "git pull --rebase --autostash" didn't auto-stash when the local history fast-forwards to the upstream. * "git describe --contains" penalized light-weight tags so much that they were almost never considered. Instead, give them about the same chance to be considered as an annotated tag that is the same age as the underlying commit would. * The result from "git diff" that compares two blobs, e.g. "git diff $commit1:$path $commit2:$path", used to be shown with the full object name as given on the command line, but it is more natural to use the \$path in the output and use it to look up .gitattributes. * A flaky test has been corrected. * Help contributors that visit us at GitHub. * "git stash push " did not work from a subdirectory \ at all. Bugfix for a topic in v2.13 Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.

Replace the links with ones to public-inbox.org. Because their message identification is based on the actual message-id, it is likely that it will be easier to migrate away from it if/when necessary. * Update tests to pass under GETTEXT_POISON (a mechanism to ensure that output strings that should not be translated are not translated by mistake), and tell TravisCI to run them. * Setting "log.decorate=false" in the configuration file did not take effect in v2.13, which has been corrected. * An earlier update to test 7400 needed to be skipped on CYGWIN. * Git sometimes gives an advice in a rhetorical question that does not require an answer, which can confuse new users and non native speakers. Attempt to rephrase them. * "git read-tree -m" (no tree-ish) gave a nonsense suggestion "use --empty if you want to clear the index". With "-m", such a request will still fail anyway, as you'd need to name at least one tree-ish to be merged. * The codepath in "git am" that is used when running "git \ rebase" leaked memory held for the log message of the commits being rebased. * "pack-objects" can stream a slice of an existing packfile out when the pack bitmap can tell that the reachable objects are all needed in the output, without inspecting individual objects. This strategy however would not work well when "--local" and other options are in use, and need to be disabled. * Clarify documentation for include.path and includeIf..path configuration variables. * Tag objects, which are not reachable from any ref, that point at missing objects were mishandled by "git gc" and friends (they should silently be ignored instead) * A few http:// links that are redirected to https:// in the documentation have been updated to https:// links. * Make sure our tests would pass when the sources are checked out with "platform native" line ending convention by default on Windows. Some "text" files out tests use and the test scripts themselves that are meant to be run with /bin/sh, ought to be checked out with eol=LF even on Windows. * Fix memory leaks pointed out by Coverity (and people). * The receive-pack program now makes sure that the push certificate records the same set of push options used for pushing. * "git cherry-pick" and other uses of the sequencer machinery mishandled a trailer block whose last line is an incomplete line. This has been fixed so that an additional sign-off etc. are added after completing the existing incomplete line. * The shell completion script (in contrib/) learned "git stash" has a new "push" subcommand. * Travis CI gained a task to format the documentation with both AsciiDoc and AsciiDoctor. * Update the C style recommendation for notes for translators, as recent versions of gettext tools can work with our style of multi-line comments. * "git clone --config var=val" is a way to populate the per-repository configuration file of the new repository, but it did not work well when val is an empty string. This has been fixed. * A few codepaths in "checkout" and "am" working on an \ unborn branch tried to access an uninitialized piece of memory. * "git for-each-ref --format=..." with %(HEAD) in the format used to resolve the HEAD symref as many times as it had processed refs, which was wasteful, and "git branch" shared the same problem. * "git interpret-trailers", when used as GIT_EDITOR for "git commit -v", looked for and appended to a trailer block at the very end, i.e. at the end of the "diff" output. The command has been corrected to pay attention to the cut-mark line "commit -v" adds to the buffer---the real trailer block should appear just before it. * A test allowed both "git push" and "git receive-pack" on \ the other end write their traces into the same file. This is OK on platforms that allows atomically appending to a file opened with O_APPEND, but on other platforms led to a mangled output, causing intermittent test failures. This has been fixed by disabling traces from "receive-pack" in the test. * "foo\bar\baz" in "git fetch foo\bar\baz", even though \ there is no slashes in it, cannot be a nickname for a remote on Windows, as that is likely to be a pathname on a local filesystem. * The "collision detecting" SHA-1 implementation shipped with 2.13 was quite broken on some big-endian platforms and/or platforms that do not like unaligned fetches. Update to the upstream code which has already fixed these issues. * "git am -h" triggered a BUG(). * The interaction of "url.*.insteadOf" and custom URL scheme's whitelisting is now documented better.  2017-05-25 05:04:05 by Noriyuki Soda | Files touched by this commit (3) Log message: git-base-2.13.0nb1 broke all little endian platforms on *BSD.

Patch from upstream, pointed out by maya@.  2017-05-10 20:09:25 by Adam Ciarcinski | Files touched by this commit (4) | Log message: Git 2.13 Release Notes ====================== Backward compatibility notes. * Use of an empty string as a pathspec element that is used for 'everything matches' is still warned and Git asks users to use a more explicit '.' for that instead. The hope is that existing users will not mind this change, and eventually the warning can be turned into a hard error, upgrading the deprecation into removal of this (mis)feature. That is not scheduled to happen in the upcoming release (yet). * The historical argument order "git merge HEAD \ ..." has been deprecated for quite some time, and is now removed. * The default location "~/.git-credential-cache/socket" for the socket used to communicate with the credential-cache daemon has been moved to "~/.cache/git/credential/socket". * Git now avoids blindly falling back to ".git" when the setup sequence said we are _not_ in Git repository. A corner case that happens to work right now may be broken by a call to die("BUG"). We've tried hard to locate such cases and fixed them, but there might still be cases that need to be addressed--bug reports are greatly appreciated. Updates since v2.12 ------------------- UI, Workflows & Features * "git describe" and "git name-rev" have been taught to \ take more than one refname patterns to restrict the set of refs to base their naming output on, and also learned to take negative patterns to name refs not to be used for naming via their "--exclude" option. * Deletion of a branch "foo/bar" could remove .git/refs/heads/foo once there no longer is any other branch whose name begins with "foo/", but we didn't do so so far. Now we do. * When "git merge" detects a path that is renamed in one history while the other history deleted (or modified) it, it now reports both paths to help the user understand what is going on in the two histories being merged. * The part in "http.." \ configuration variable can now be spelled with '*' that serves as wildcard. E.g. "http.https://*.example.com.proxy" can be used to specify the proxy used for https://a.example.com, https://b.example.com, etc., i.e. any host in the example.com domain. * "git tag" did not leave useful message when adding a new entry to reflog; this was left unnoticed for a long time because refs/tags/* doesn't keep reflog by default. * The "negative" pathspec feature was somewhat more cumbersome to use than necessary in that its short-hand used "!" which needed to be escaped from shells, and it required "exclude from what?" specified. * The command line options for ssh invocation needs to be tweaked for some implementations of SSH (e.g. PuTTY plink wants "-P " while OpenSSH wants "-p " to specify port to connect \ to), and the variant was guessed when GIT_SSH environment variable is used to specify it. The logic to guess now applies to the command specified by the newer GIT_SSH_COMMAND and also core.sshcommand configuration variable, and comes with an escape hatch for users to deal with misdetected cases.
