Make "update-cache" a bit friendlier to use (and harder to mis-use). It now requires the "--add" flag before you add any new files, and a "--remove" file if you want to mark files for removal. And giving it the "--refresh" flag makes it just update all the files that it already knows about.
Linus Torvalds
This implements the new "recursive tree" write-tree. It's got some debugging printouts etc still in it, but testing on the kernel seems to show that it does indeed fix the issue with huge tree files for each commit.
Linus Torvalds
Make fsck-cache warn about old-style tree objects that have full pathnames in them. We're migrating away from that. This will cause tons of warnings for the current "sparse" archive, but hell, better now than later.
Linus Torvalds
Teach "fsck" and "read-tree" about recursive tree-nodes. This is totally untested, since we can't actually _write_ things that way yet, but I'll get to that next, I hope. That should fix the huge wasted space for kernel-sized tree objects.
Linus Torvalds
Make "fsck-cache" print out all the root commits it finds. Once I do the reference tracking, I'll also make it print out all the HEAD commits it finds, which is even more interesting.
Linus Torvalds
Add "diff-tree" program to show which files have changed between two trees. Very useful for creating diffs efficiently, and in general to see what has changed in the namespace.
Linus Torvalds
Export "cache_name_compare()" helper function. The "diff-tree" program needs it.
Linus Torvalds
Make "read-tree" read the tree into the current directory cache. It will no longer update the actual working directory, just the cache. To update the working directory, you need to use "checkout-cache".
Linus Torvalds
Make "write_cache()" and friends available as generic routines. This is needed for the change to make "read-tree" just read into the cache (and then you do a "checkout-cache" to update your current dir contents).
Linus Torvalds
Fix "checkout-cache.c" mis-use of read_sha1_file() interface. It's supposed to test the returned file type, not think that read_sha1_file() tests it. Confusion from "cat-file" command line usage.
Linus Torvalds
Fix up "checkout-cache" a bit Make the warnings have newlines, and don't stop "checkout-cache -a" just because a file already exists.
Linus Torvalds
Add a "checkout-cache" command which does what the name suggests. I'll also eventually change "read-tree" to only update the cache information, instead of doing a checkout of the tree. Much nicer.
Linus Torvalds
Make the cache stat information comparator public. Like the cache filename finder, it's a generically useful function, rather than something specific to the current "show-diff" thing.
Linus Torvalds
Make "cache_name_pos()" available to others. It finds the cache entry position for a given name, and is generally useful. Sure, everybody can just scan the active cache array, but since it's sorted, you actually want to search it with a binary search, so let's not duplicate that logic all over the place.
Linus Torvalds
Fix missing return values and some error tests for empty index files Patches from Dave Jones and Ingo Molnar, but since I don't have any infrastructure in place to use the old patch applicator scripts I am trying to build up, I ended up fixing the thing by hand instead. Credit where credit is due, though. Nice to see that people are taking a look at the project even in this early stage.
Linus Torvalds
Make fsck-cache start parsing the object types, and checking their internal format. This doesn't yet check the reachability information, but we're getting there.. Slowly.
Linus Torvalds
Add "-lz" to link line to get in zlib. Not all Linux distributions seem to need it (notably not YDL on ppc64), but enough ones obviously do.
Linus Torvalds
Add new fsck-cache to Makefile. This is what happens when there are no nice tools to tell you to do things properly.
Linus Torvalds
Add first cut at "fsck-cache" that validates the SHA1 object store. It doesn't complain about mine. But it also doesn't yet check for inter-object reachability etc.
Linus Torvalds
Add "check_sha1_signature()" helper function And fix up header declarations.
Linus Torvalds
Factor out "read_sha1_file" into mapping/inflating/unmapping. This allows us to also actually check the sha1 hash using these routines. Needed for the "fsck" thing.
Linus Torvalds
Use "-Wall -O2" for the compiler to get more warnings. And fix up the warnings that it pointed out. Let's keep the tree clean from early on. Not that the code is very beautiful anyway ;)
Linus Torvalds
Make "cat-file" output the file contents to stdout. New syntax: "cat-file -t <sha1>" shows the tag, while "cat-file <tag> <sha1>" outputs the file contents after checking that the supplied tag matches.
Linus Torvalds
Make read-tree actually unpack the whole tree. I needed this to make a "sparse" archive conversion from my old BitKeeper tree data. The scripts to do the conversion are just incredibly ugly, but they seem to validate the notion that you can actually use this silly 'git' thing to save your history in.
Linus Torvalds
Add copyright notices. The tool interface sucks (especially "committing" information, which is just me doing everything by hand from the command line), but I think this is in theory actually a viable way of describing the world. So copyright it.
