git-gui: Don't crash in citool mode on initial commit. Attempting to use `git citool` to create an initial commit caused git-gui to crash with a Tcl error as it tried to add the newly born branch to the non-existant branch menu. Moving this code to after the normal commit cleanup logic resolves the issue, as we only have a branch menu if we are not in singlecommit mode. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <spearce@spearce.org>

git-gui: Remove TODO list. I'm apparently not very good at keeping my own TODO file current. I its also somewhat strange to keep the TODO list as part of the software branch, as its meta-information that is not directly related to the code. I'm pulling the TODO list from git-gui and moving it into a seperate branch. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <spearce@spearce.org>

git-gui: Include browser in our usage message. Now that the 'browser' subcommand can be used to startup the tree browser, it should be listed as a possible subcommand option in our usage message. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <spearce@spearce.org>

git-gui: Change summary of git-gui. Since git-gui does more than create commits, it is unfair to call it "a commit creation tool". Instead lets just call it a graphical user interface. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <spearce@spearce.org>

git-gui: Display all authors of git-gui. Now that git-gui has been released to the public as part of Git 1.5.0 I am starting to see some work from other people beyond myself and Paul. Consequently the copyright for git-gui is not strictly the two of us anymore, and these others deserve to have some credit given to them. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <spearce@spearce.org>

git-gui: Use mixed path for docs on Cygwin. The Firefox browser requires that a URL use / to delimit directories. This is instead of \, as \ gets escaped by the browser into its hex escape code and then relative URLs are incorrectly resolved, Firefox no longer sees the directories for what they are. Since we are handing the browser a true URL, we better use the standard / for directories. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <spearce@spearce.or…

git-gui: Correct crash when saving options in blame mode. Martin Waitz noticed that git-gui crashed while saving the user's options out if the application was started in blame mode. This was caused by the do_save_config procedure invoking reshow_diff incase the number of context lines was modified by the user. Because we bypassed main window UI setup to enter blame mode we did not set many of the globals which were accessed by reshow_diff, and reading u…

git-gui: Expose the browser as a subcommand. Some users may find being able to browse around an arbitrary branch to be handy, so we now expose our graphical browser through `git gui browse <committish>`. Yes, I'm being somewhat lazy and making the user give us the name of the branch to browse. They can always enter HEAD. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <spearce@spearce.org>

git-gui: Create new branches from a tag. I'm missing the possibility to base a new branch on a tag. The following adds a tag drop down to the new branch dialog. Signed-off-by: Martin Koegler <mkoegler@auto.tuwien.ac.at> Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <spearce@spearce.org>

git-gui: Prefer version file over git-describe. Some distributions are using Git for part of their package management system, but unpack Git's own source code for delivery from the .tar.gz. This means that when we walk up the directory tree with git-describe to locate a Git repository, the repository we find is for the distribution and *not* for git-gui. Consequently any tag we might find there is bogus and does not apply to us. In this case…

git-gui: Print version on the console. Like `git version`, `git gui version` (or `git gui --version`) shows the version of git-gui, in case the user needs to know this, without looking at it in the GUI about dialog. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <spearce@spearce.org>

git-gui: More consistently display the application name. I started to find it confusing that git-gui would refer to itself as git-citool when it was started through the citool hardlink, or with the citool subcommand. What was especially confusing was the options dialog and the about dialog, as both seemed to imply they were somehow different from the git-gui versions. In actuality there is no difference at all. Now we just call our options menu item …

git-gui: Permit merging tags into the current branch. It was pointed out on the git mailing list by Martin Koegler that we did not show tags as possible things to merge into the current branch. They actually are, and core Git's Grand Unified Merge Driver will accept them just like any other commit. So our merge dialog now requests all refs/heads, refs/remotes and refs/tags named refs and attempts to match them against the commits not in HEAD. One …

git-gui: Basic version check to ensure git 1.5.0 or later is used. This is a very crude (but hopefully effective) check against the `git` executable found in our PATH. Some of the subcommands and options that git-gui requires to be present to operate were created during the 1.5.0 development cycle, so 1.5 is the minimum version of git that we can expect to support. There actually are early releases of 1.5 (e.g. 1.5.0-rc0) that don't have everything we expect (l…

git-gui: Refactor 'exec git subcmd' idiom. As we frequently need to execute a Git subcommand and obtain its returned output we are making heavy use of [exec git foo] to run foo. As I'm concerned about possibly needing to carry environment data through a shell on Cygwin for at least some subcommands, I'm migrating all current calls to a new git proc. This actually makes the code look cleaner too, as we aren't saying 'exec git' everywhere.…

git-gui: fix typo in GIT-VERSION-GEN, "/dev/null" not "/devnull" Signed-off-by: Andy Parkins <andyparkins@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <spearce@spearce.org>

git-gui: Change base version to 0.6. This is the start of the 0.6 series of git-gui. I'm calling it 0.6 (rather than any other value) as I already had a private tag on one system based on 0.5, and that tag is quite a bit behind this version. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <spearce@spearce.org>

git-gui: Guess our version accurately as a subproject. When we are included as a subproject, such as how git.git carries us, we want to retain our own version number and not the version number assigned by git.git's own tags. Consequently we need to locate the correct tag which applies to our tree content and its commit lineage. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <spearce@spearce.org>

git-gui: Handle gitgui tags in version gen. I've decided to use gitgui-0.5 as the format for tags in the git-gui repository. The prefix of gitgui was chosen here to make its namespace different from the namespace used by git itself, allowing developers to pull both tag namespaces into the same repository.

git-gui: Generate a version file on demand. Because git-gui is being shipped as a subproject of the main Git project and will often have a different lifecycle than the main Git project, we should ship our own version number in the release tarball rather than relying on the main Git version file. Git's master Makefile will invoke our own with the target dist-version, asking us to save off our GITGUI_VERSION value into our own version file, …

git-gui: Rename GIT_VERSION to GITGUI_VERSION. Now that the decision has been made to treat git-gui as a subproject, rather than merging it directly into git, we should use a different substitution for our version value to avoid any possible confusion.

git-gui: Allow gitexecdir, INSTALL to be set by the caller. When used as a subproject within git.git our Makefile must honor the gitexecdir which git.git's Makefile is passing down to us, ensuring that we install our executables into the libexec chosen by the end-user or packager.

git-gui: Stop deleting gitk preferences. Now that git 1.5.0 and later contains a version of gitk that uses correct geometry on Windows platforms, even if ~/.gitk exists, we should not delete the user's ~/.gitk to work around the bug. It is downright mean to remove a user's preferences for another app. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <spearce@spearce.org>

git-gui: Improve annotated file display. Rather than trying to mark the background color of the line numbers to show which lines have annotated data loaded, we now show a ruler between the line numbers and the file data. This ruler is just 1 character wide and its background color is set to grey to denote which lines have annotation ready. I had to make this change as I kept loosing the annotation marker when a line was no longer color…

git-gui: Jump to the first annotation block as soon as its available. To help clue users into the fact that annotation data arrives incrementally, and that they should try to locate the region they want while the tool is running, we jump to the first line of the first annotation if the user has not already clicked on a line they are interested in and if the window is still looking at the very top of the file. Since it takes a second (at least on my PowerBook) to ev…

git-gui: Redesign the display of annotated files. Using 180 columns worth of screen space to display just 20 columns of file data and 160 columns worth of annotation information is not practically useful. Users need/want to see the file data, and have the anotation associated with it displayed in a detail pane only when they have focused on a particular region of the file. Now our file viewer has a small 10-line high pane below the file which s…

git-gui: Use git-config now over git-repo-config. Now that core Git has "renamed" git-repo-config to git-config, we should do the same. I don't know how long core Git will keep the repo-config command, and since git-gui's userbase is so small and almost entirely on some flavor of 1.5.0-rc2 or later, where the rename has already taken place, it should be OK to rename now.

git-gui: Relabel the Add All action. One user that I spoke with recently was confused why the 'Add All' button did not add all of his 'Changed But Not Updated' files. The particular files in question were new, and thus not known to Git. Since the 'Add All' routine only updates files which are already tracked, they were not added automatically. I suspect that calling this action 'Add Existing' would be less confusing, so I'm renamin…

git-gui: Select subcommands like git does. If we are invoked as `git-foo`, then we should run the `foo` subcommand, as the user has made some sort of link from `git-foo` to our actual program code. So we should honor their request. If we are invoked as `git-gui foo`, the user has not made a link (or did, but is not using it right now) so we should execute the `foo` subcommand. We now can start the single commit UI mode via `git-citool` …
