Be more careful about reference parsing
This does two things:
- we don't allow "." and ".." as components of a refname. Thus get_sha1()
will not accept "./refname" as being the same as "refname" any more.
- git-rev-parse stops doing revision translation after seeing a pathname,
to match the brhaviour of all the tools (once we see a pathname,
everything else will also be parsed as a pathname).
Basically, if you did
git log *
and "gitk" was somewhere in the "*", we don't want to replace the filename
"gitk" with the SHA1 of the branch with the same name.
Of course, if there is any change of ambiguity, you should always use "--"
to make it explicit what are filenames and what are revisions, but this
makes the normal cases sane. The refname rule also means that instead of
the "--", you can do the same thing we're used to doing with filenames
that start with a slash: use "./filename" instead, and now it's a
filename, not an option (and not a revision).
So "git log ./*.c" is now actually a perfectly valid thing to do, even if
the first C-file might have the same name as a branch.
git-rev-parse gitk ./gitk gitk
should output something like
where the "./gitk" isn't seen as a revision, and the second "gitk" is a
filename simply because we've seen filenames already, and thus stopped
doing revision parsing.
