merge: allow to pretend a merge is made into a different branch When a series of patches for a topic-B depends on having topic-A, the workflow to prepare the topic-B branch would look like this: $ git checkout -b topic-B main $ git merge --no-ff --no-edit topic-A $ git am <mbox-for-topic-B When topic-A gets updated, recreating the first merge and rebasing the rest of the topic-B, all on detached HEAD, is a useful technique. After updating topic-A with its new round of patches: $ git checkout topic-B $ prev=$(git rev-parse 'HEAD^{/^Merge branch .topic-A. into}') $ git checkout --detach $prev^1 $ git merge --no-ff --no-edit topic-A $ git rebase --onto HEAD $prev @{-1}^0 $ git checkout -B @{-1} This will (0) check out the current topic-B. (1) find the previous merge of topic-A into topic-B. (2) detach the HEAD to the parent of the previous merge. (3) merge the updated topic-A to it. (4) reapply the patches to rebuild the rest of topic-B. (5) update topic-B with the result. without contaminating the reflog of topic-B too much. topic-B@{1} is the "logically previous" state before topic-A got updated, for example. At (4), comparison (e.g. range-diff) between HEAD and @{-1} is a meaningful way to sanity check the result, and the same can be done at (5) by comparing topic-B and topic-B@{1}. But there is one glitch. The merge into the detached HEAD done in the step (3) above gives us "Merge branch 'topic-A' into HEAD", and does not say "into topic-B". Teach the "--into-name=<branch>" option to "git merge" and its underlying "git fmt-merge-message", to pretend as if we were merging into <branch>, no matter what branch we are actually merging into, when they prepare the merge message. The pretend name honors the usual "into <target>" suppression mechanism, which can be seen in the tests added here. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

config: add ctx arg to config_fn_t Add a new "const struct config_context *ctx" arg to config_fn_t to hold additional information about the config iteration operation. config_context has a "struct key_value_info kvi" member that holds metadata about the config source being read (e.g. what kind of config source it is, the filename, etc). In this series, we're only interested in .kvi, so we could have just used "struct key_value_info" as an arg, but config_context makes it possible to add/adjust members in the future without changing the config_fn_t signature. We could also consider other ways of organizing the args (e.g. moving the config name and value into config_context or key_value_info), but in my experiments, the incremental benefit doesn't justify the added complexity (e.g. a config_fn_t will sometimes invoke another config_fn_t but with a different config value). In subsequent commits, the .kvi member will replace the global "struct config_reader" in config.c, making config iteration a global-free operation. It requires much more work for the machinery to provide meaningful values of .kvi, so for now, merely change the signature and call sites, pass NULL as a placeholder value, and don't rely on the arg in any meaningful way. Most of the changes are performed by contrib/coccinelle/config_fn_ctx.pending.cocci, which, for every config_fn_t: - Modifies the signature to accept "const struct config_context *ctx" - Passes "ctx" to any inner config_fn_t, if needed - Adds UNUSED attributes to "ctx", if needed Most config_fn_t instances are easily identified by seeing if they are called by the various config functions. Most of the remaining ones are manually named in the .cocci patch. Manual cleanups are still needed, but the majority of it is trivial; it's either adjusting config_fn_t that the .cocci patch didn't catch, or adding forward declarations of "struct config_context ctx" to make the signatures make sense. The non-trivial changes are in cases where we are invoking a config_fn_t outside of config machinery, and we now need to decide what value of "ctx" to pass. These cases are: - trace2/tr2_cfg.c:tr2_cfg_set_fl() This is indirectly called by git_config_set() so that the trace2 machinery can notice the new config values and update its settings using the tr2 config parsing function, i.e. tr2_cfg_cb(). - builtin/checkout.c:checkout_main() This calls git_xmerge_config() as a shorthand for parsing a CLI arg. This might be worth refactoring away in the future, since git_xmerge_config() can call git_default_config(), which can do much more than just parsing. Handle them by creating a KVI_INIT macro that initializes "struct key_value_info" to a reasonable default, and use that to construct the "ctx" arg.
