Elijah Newren b9a7ac2c68 hash-ll, hashmap: move oidhash() to hash-ll
oidhash() was used by both hashmap and khash, which makes sense.
However, the location of this function in hashmap.[ch] meant that
khash.h had to depend upon hashmap.h, making people unfamiliar with
khash think that it was built upon hashmap.  (Or at least, I personally
was confused for a while about this in the past.)

Move this function to hash-ll, so that khash.h can stop depending upon

This has another benefit as well: it allows us to remove hashmap.h's
dependency on hash-ll.h.  While some callers of hashmap.h were making
use of oidhash, most were not, so this change provides another way to
reduce the number of includes.

Jeff King 74595cca21 serve: mark unused parameters in virtual functions
Each v2 "serve" action has a virtual function for advertising and
implementing the command. A few of these are so trivial that they don't
need to look at their parameters, especially the "repository" parameter.
We can mark them so that -Wunused-parameter doesn't complain.

Note that upload_pack_v2() probably _should_ be using its repository
pointer. But teaching the functions it calls to do so is non-trivial.
Even using it for something as simple as reading config is tricky, both
because it shares code with the v1 upload pack, and because the
git_protected_config() mechanism it uses does not have a repo-specific
interface. So we'll just annotate it for now, and cleaning it up can be
part of the larger work to drop references to the_repository.

Jeff King 4b4e75dd4f serve: use repository pointer to get config
A few of the v2 "serve" callbacks ignore their repository parameter and
read config using the_repository (either directly or implicitly by
calling wrapper functions). This isn't a bug since the server code only
handles a single main repository anyway (and indeed, if you look at the
callers, these repository parameters will always be the_repository). But
in the long run we want to get rid of the_repository, so let's take a
tiny step in that direction.

As a bonus, this silences some -Wunused-parameter warnings.

Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 8b8d9a2298 protocol v2: add server-side "bundle-uri" skeleton
Add a skeleton server-side implementation of a new "bundle-uri" command
to protocol v2. This will allow conforming clients to optionally seed
their initial clones or incremental fetches from URLs containing
"*.bundle" files created with "git bundle create".

This change only performs the basic boilerplate of advertising a new
protocol v2 capability. The new 'bundle-uri' capability allows a client
to request a list of bundles. Right now, the server only returns a flush
packet, which corresponds to an empty advertisement. The bundle.* config
namespace describes which key-value pairs will be communicated across
this interface in future updates.

The critical bit right now is that the new boolean
uploadPack.adverstiseBundleURIs config value signals whether or not this
capability should be advertised at all.

An earlier version of this patch [1] used a different transfer format
than the "key=value" pairs in the current implementation. The change was
made to unify the protocol v2 command with the bundle lists provided by
independent bundle servers. Further, the standard allows for the server
to advertise a URI that contains a bundle list. This allows users
automatically discovering bundle providers that are loosely associated
with the origin server, but without the origin server knowing exactly
which bundles are currently available.


The very-deep headings needed to be modified to stop at level 4 due to
documentation build issues. These were not recognized in earlier builds
since the file was previously in the Documentation/technical/ directory
and was built in a different way. With its current location, the
heavily-nested details were causing build issues and they are now
replaced with a bulletted list of details.

Jeff King 0ab7eeccd9 serve: reject commands used as capabilities
Our table of v2 "capabilities" contains everything we might tell the
client we support. But there are differences in how we expect the client
to respond. Some of the entries are true capabilities (i.e., we expect
the client to say "yes, I support this"), and some are ones we expect
them to send as commands (with "command=ls-refs" or similar).

When we receive a capability used as a command, we complain about that.
But when we receive a command used as a capability (e.g., just "ls-refs"
in a pkt-line by itself), we silently ignore it.

This isn't really hurting anything (clients shouldn't send it, and we'll
ignore it), but we can tighten up the protocol to match what we expect
to happen.

There are two new tests here. The first one checks a capability used as
a command, which already passes. The second tests a command as a
capability, which this patch fixes.

Jeff King 108c265f27 serve: reject bogus v2 "command=ls-refs=foo"
When we see a line from the client like "command=ls-refs", we parse
everything after the equals sign as a capability, which we check against
our capabilities table. If we don't recognize the command (e.g.,
"command=foo"), we'll reject it.

But in parse_command(), we use the same get_capability() parser for
parsing non-command lines. So if we see "command=ls-refs=foo", we will
feed "ls-refs=foo" to get_capability(), which will say "OK, that's
ls-refs, with value 'foo'". But then we simply ignore the value

The client is violating the spec here, which says:

      command = PKT-LINE("command=" key LF)
      key = 1*(ALPHA | DIGIT | "-_")

I.e., the key is not even allowed to have an equals sign in it. Whereas
a real non-command capability does allow a value:

      capability = PKT-LINE(key[=value] LF)

So by reusing the same get_capability() parser, we are mixing up the
"key" and "capability" tokens. However, since that parser tells us
whether it saw an "=", we can still use it; we just need to reject any
input that produces a non-NULL value field.

The current behavior isn't really hurting anything (the client should
never send such a request, and if it does, we just ignore the "value"
part). But since it does violate the spec, let's tighten it up to
prevent any surprising behavior.

While this is usually small, there's no limit to the number of
capabilities the client can send us (e.g., they could just send us

Since all code has been converted away from using this list, let's get
rid of it. This avoids a potential attack where clients waste our

Jeff King ab539c9094 serve: provide "receive" function for session-id capability
Rather than pulling the session-id string from the list of collected
capabilities, we can handle it as soon as we receive it. This gets us
closer to dropping the collected list entirely.

The behavior should be the same, with one exception. Previously if the
client sent us multiple session-id lines, we'd report only the first.
Now we'll pass each one along to trace2. This shouldn't matter in

We get any "object-format" specified by the client by searching for it
in the collected list of capabilities the client sent. We can instead
just handle it as soon as they send it. This is slightly more efficient,
and gets us one step closer to dropping that collected list.

Note that we do still have to do our final hash check after receiving
all capabilities (because they might not have sent an object-format line
at all, and we still have to check that the default matches our
repository algorithm). Since the check_algorithm() function would now be
down to a single if() statement, I've just inlined it in its only

There should be no change of behavior here, except for two
broken-protocol cases:

    quite easily now, which we could not before, but I didn't do so

Jeff King e56e53067f serve: add "receive" method for v2 capabilities table
We have a capabilities table that tells us what we should tell the
client we are capable of, and what to do when a client gives us a
particular command (e.g., "command=ls-refs"). But it doesn't tell us
what to do when the client sends us back a capability (e.g.,
"object-format=sha256"). We just collect them all in a strvec and hope
somebody can use them later.

Instead, let's provide a function pointer in the table to act on these.
This will eventually help us avoid collecting the strings, which will be
more efficient and less prone to mischief.

Using the new method is optional, which helps in two ways:

  - we can move existing capabilities over to this new system gradually
    in individual commits

  - some capabilities we don't actually do anything with anyway. For
    example, the client is free to say "agent=git/1.2.3" to us, but we
    do not act on the information in any way.

Jeff King 5ef260d2d1 serve: return capability "value" from get_capability()
When the client sends v2 capabilities, they may be simple, like:


or have a value like:


(all of the current capabilities actually expect a value, but the
protocol allows for boolean ones).

We use get_capability() to make sure the client's pktline matches a
capability. In doing so, we parse enough to see the "=" and the value
(if any), but we immediately forget it. Nobody cares for now, because they end
up parsing the values out later using has_capability(). But in
preparation for changing that, let's pass back a pointer so the callers
know what we found.

Note that unlike has_capability(), we'll return NULL for a "simple"
capability. Distinguishing these will be useful for some future patches.

Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason f234da8019 serve.[ch]: remove "serve_options", split up --advertise-refs code
The "advertise capabilities" mode of serve.c added in
ed10cb952d (serve: introduce git-serve, 2018-03-15) is only used by
the http-backend.c to call {upload,receive}-pack with the
--advertise-refs parameter. See 42526b478e (Add stateless RPC options
to upload-pack, receive-pack, 2009-10-30).

Let's just make cmd_upload_pack() take the two (v2) or three (v2)
parameters the the v2/v1 servicing functions need directly, and pass
those in via the function signature. The logic of whether daemon mode
is implied by the timeout belongs in the v1 function (only used

Once we split up the "advertise v2 refs" from "serve v2 request" it
becomes clear that v2 never cared about those in combination. The only
time it mattered was for v1 to emit its ref advertisement, in that
case we wanted to emit the smart-http-only "no-done" capability.

Since we only do that in the --advertise-refs codepath let's just have
it set "do_done" itself in v1's upload_pack() just before send_ref(),
at that point --advertise-refs and --stateless-rpc in combination are
redundant (the only user is get_info_refs() in http-backend.c), so we
can just pass in --advertise-refs only.

Since we need to touch all the serve() and advertise_capabilities()
codepaths let's rename them to less clever and obvious names, it's
been suggested numerous times, the latest of which is [1]'s suggestion
for protocol_v2_serve_loop(). Let's go with that.

Jonathan Tan 59e1205d16 ls-refs: report unborn targets of symrefs
When cloning, we choose the default branch based on the remote HEAD.
But if there is no remote HEAD reported (which could happen if the
target of the remote HEAD is unborn), we'll fall back to using our local
init.defaultBranch. Traditionally this hasn't been a big deal, because
most repos used "master" as the default. But these days it is likely to
cause confusion if the server and client implementations choose
different values (e.g., if the remote started with "main", we may choose
"master" locally, create commits there, and then the user is surprised
when they push to "master" and not "main").

To solve this, the remote needs to communicate the target of the HEAD
symref, even if it is unborn, and "git clone" needs to use this

Currently, symrefs that have unborn targets (such as in this case) are
not communicated by the protocol. Teach Git to advertise and support the
"unborn" feature in "ls-refs" (by default, this is advertised, but
server administrators may turn this off through the lsrefs.unborn
config). This feature indicates that "ls-refs" supports the "unborn"
argument; when it is specified, "ls-refs" will send the HEAD symref with
the name of its unborn target.

This change is only for protocol v2. A similar change for protocol v0
would require independent protocol design (there being no analogous
position to signal support for "unborn") and client-side plumbing of the
data required, so the scope of this patch set is limited to protocol v2.

The client side will be updated to use this in a subsequent commit.

Masaya Suzuki 2d103c31c2 pack-protocol.txt: accept error packets in any context
In the Git pack protocol definition, an error packet may appear only in
a certain context. However, servers can face a runtime error (e.g. I/O
error) at an arbitrary timing. This patch changes the protocol to allow
an error packet to be sent instead of any packet.

Without this protocol spec change, when a server cannot process a
request, there's no way to tell that to a client. Since the server
cannot produce a valid response, it would be forced to cut a connection
without telling why. With this protocol spec change, the server can be
more gentle in this situation. An old client may see these error packets
as an unexpected packet, but this is not worse than having an unexpected

Following this protocol spec change, the error packet handling code is
moved to pkt-line.c. Implementation wise, this implementation uses
pkt-line to communicate with a subprocess. Since this is not a part of
Git protocol, it's possible that a packet that is not supposed to be an
error packet is mistakenly parsed as an error packet. This error packet
handling is enabled only for the Git pack protocol parsing code
considering this.

Brandon Williams ecc3e5342d serve: introduce the server-option capability
Introduce the "server-option" capability to protocol version 2.  This
enables future clients the ability to send server specific options in
command requests when using protocol version 2.

Brandon Williams 72d0ea0056 ls-refs: introduce ls-refs server command
Introduce the ls-refs server command.  In protocol v2, the ls-refs
command is used to request the ref advertisement from the server.  Since
it is a command which can be requested (as opposed to mandatory in v1),
a client can sent a number of parameters in its request to limit the ref
advertisement based on provided ref-prefixes.

Brandon Williams ed10cb952d serve: introduce git-serve
Introduce git-serve, the base server for protocol version 2.

Protocol version 2 is intended to be a replacement for Git's current
wire protocol.  The intention is that it will be a simpler, less
wasteful protocol which can evolve over time.

Protocol version 2 improves upon version 1 by eliminating the initial
ref advertisement.  In its place a server will export a list of
capabilities and commands which it supports in a capability
advertisement.  A client can then request that a particular command be
executed by providing a number of capabilities and command specific
parameters.  At the completion of a command, a client can request that
another command be executed or can terminate the connection by sending a
flush packet.
