git questions

This is mostly for Andrew Straw, but thought anyone else experimenting with git may be interested. I'm going through some real newbie pains here, and I don't think what I'm doing is all that advanced.

So, I've had a local git repository cloned from github (as per Andrew's instructions), made a branch, started hacking, all is well. Now, I would like to update my master branch from SVN to get some of the recent changes others have been making.

Following the instructions in the FAQ,

  git svn rebase

actually results in a number of conflicts in files I didn't touch. I shouldn't have to resolve this conflicts, right? 'git status' shows no local changes, nothing staged -- nothing that should conflict.

It turns out, if I do

   git pull

then,

   git svn rebase

all is well.

Any idea why? Should I add that to the instructions in the FAQ?

Now, here's where I'm really stumped. I finished my experimental branch, and I would like to commit it back to SVN.

This is what I did, with comments preceded by '#'

# Go back to the master branch
> git checkout master
# Merge in experimental

Hi Michael,

The main issue is that we can't use git "normally" because the main
history will be kept with svn. Thus, there's going to be a lot of
history rewriting going on through the rebase command. (These
complications are obviously not the ideal scenario for git newbies...)
Rather than answer your questions directly, I'll walk you through how I
do things. (This is not tried on the MPL svn repo, but some a private
svn repo. I don't see any fundamental differences, though. So this
should work.)

(Hopefully this will be cut-and-pasteable ReST, which could go in the
docs somewhere):

Making a git feature branch and committing to svn trunk

···

-------------------------------------------------------

Start with a virgin tree in sync with the svn trunk on the git branch
"master"::

  git checkout master
  git svn rebase

To create a new, local branch called "whizbang-branch"::

  git checkout -b whizbang-branch

Do make commits to the local branch::

  # hack on a bunch of files
  git add bunch of files
  git commit -m "modified a bunch of files"
  # repeat this as necessary

Now, go back to the master branch and append the history of your branch
to the master branch, which will end up as the svn trunk::

  git checkout master
  git svn rebase # Ensure we have most recent svn
  git rebase whizbang-branch # Append whizbang changes to master branch
  git svn dcommit -n # Check that this will apply to svn
  git svn dcommit # Actually apply to svn

Finally, you may want to continue working on your whizbang-branch, so
rebase it to the new master::

  git checkout whizbang-branch
  git rebase master

To do that, I actually delete the master branch with "git branch -D
master" and then re-create a new one with "git checkout -b master
028a0df8" (where I've identified commit 028a0df8 as where I want the new
master to be).

Note that before deleting the master branch, it's probably wise to
create a branch, which will probably be deleted momentarily, as a
reference to this location in case you need to get back to it. Do so
with "git checkout -b tmp/old-master". When everything is done, use "git
branch -D tmp/old-master" to delete it.

Thanks for the suggestion. Because I "merged", rather than "rebased" changes from SVN, so it's not clear to me how to remove only the changes that were brought in from the merge. But that might also be the root cause of the problem I'm having. I tried going back to the first SVN change prior to anything on my branch, the "git svn rebase", but that didn't solve the issue -- it still requires me to merge changes I know nothing about. I think I'll follow your suggestion of "rebasing" development branches -- I can see how that's superior to "merge" anyway, since it will hide all my work/mistakes from the central SVN repository.

I'm going to declare bankruptcy at re-clone the whole repository and see if things work better. Wish I understood how I painted myself in this corner in the first place, but maybe I'll notice it next time around.

Thanks. I've incorporated your docs into the developer documentation.

My next experiment will be to see if I can track the 0.98.5 maintenance branch with git. SVN tags/* show up as available remote branches, but not branches/*, which leaves me a bit stumped? If you've done this and there's a quick answer, let me know, otherwise I'll do a little digging to see if it's possible.

Hi Mike,

I have not imported the branches. ( IIRC, this was there were several
that weren't MPL but other parts of the repo such as py4science,
toolkits and so on). It may be possible to add just the 0.98.5
maintenance branch without the others, but I won't have a chance
immediately to play around with that.

To add all the branches to your git repo, you might be able to add
something like "branches = branches/*:refs/remotes/branches/*" to the
[svn-remote "svn"] section of .git/config and re-do "git svn fetch"...
This will grab all the branches over all svn history, which will, I
think, pull in py4science and toolkits branches... And I guess the
download time from svn will be extremely long... In that case it's
probably better to rsync from sourceforge's server to a local disk and
do the git svn checkout that way making a whole new git repo.

It may be worth attempting to talk to some real git/svn gurus at this
point about tracking (only one or a couple) svn branches with git
branches. So far, I've only dealt with the trunk in my git/svn
interoperation experience.

Thanks. These are really helpful pointers. For me, this is the one missing piece that would help me use git full-time, particularly with the way matplotlib and other projects I work on are laid out in SVN. So I'm pretty motivated to figure this out.

I'll certainly share any findings in this regard.

Cheers,

Hi Mike,

I have not imported the branches. ( IIRC, this was there were several
that weren't MPL but other parts of the repo such as py4science,
toolkits and so on). It may be possible to add just the 0.98.5
maintenance branch without the others, but I won't have a chance
immediately to play around with that.

To add all the branches to your git repo, you might be able to add
something like "branches = branches/*:refs/remotes/branches/*" to the
[svn-remote "svn"] section of .git/config and re-do "git svn fetch"...
This will grab all the branches over all svn history, which will, I
think, pull in py4science and toolkits branches... And I guess the
download time from svn will be extremely long... In that case it's
probably better to rsync from sourceforge's server to a local disk and
do the git svn checkout that way making a whole new git repo.

It may be worth attempting to talk to some real git/svn gurus at this
point about tracking (only one or a couple) svn branches with git
branches. So far, I've only dealt with the trunk in my git/svn
interoperation experience.

Hi Michael,

The main issue is that we can't use git "normally" because the main

history rewriting going on through the rebase command. (These
complications are obviously not the ideal scenario for git newbies...)
Rather than answer your questions directly, I'll walk you through how I
do things. (This is not tried on the MPL svn repo, but some a private
svn repo. I don't see any fundamental differences, though. So this
should work.)

Making a git feature branch and committing to svn trunk
-------------------------------------------------------

Start with a virgin tree in sync with the svn trunk on the git branch
"master"::

  git checkout master
  git svn rebase

To create a new, local branch called "whizbang-branch"::

  git checkout -b whizbang-branch

Do make commits to the local branch::

  # hack on a bunch of files
  git add bunch of files
  git commit -m "modified a bunch of files"
  # repeat this as necessary

Now, go back to the master branch and append the history of your branch
to the master branch, which will end up as the svn trunk::

  git checkout master
  git svn rebase # Ensure we have most recent svn
  git rebase whizbang-branch # Append whizbang changes to master branch
  git svn dcommit -n # Check that this will apply to svn
  git svn dcommit # Actually apply to svn

Finally, you may want to continue working on your whizbang-branch, so
rebase it to the new master::

  git checkout whizbang-branch
  git rebase master

I have successfully used the git mirror to commit changes to the maintenance branch. I've updated the matplotlib developer docs to describe how to do it (not that bad really), though it takes a while given the v0_98_4 "oops" branch :wink: I have yet to figure out all the loop-de-loops required to merge from the maintenance branch to the trunk in git and then push that all back to SVN (should be possible, but may not play well with svnmerge, anyway). The good news is that, as always, svnmerge still works for that purpose.

Hi Mike, This sounds like good news. I am swamped right now, but I hope
to get the git mirror on github up-to-date early next week when work is
a little less busy.

John (or any developer with SF admin capabilities), if we could set up
some kind of auto-notification on SVN commits, I could possibly set up a
script to update the git repo. The thing I've seen so far is to go to
the Sourceforge project page and under "Admin" selection "Subversion"
then at the bottom in the "Hooks" section, change the entry to
"ciabot_svn.py - Send commit stats to cia.navi.cx". If you could do
that, from there I will attempt to take things to auto-update the git
mirror.

When you have resolved this problem run "git rebase --continue".
If you would prefer to skip this patch, instead run "git rebase --skip".
To restore the original branch and stop rebasing run "git rebase --abort".

Now I feel stuck. How do I "undo" the merge from experimental to master?

Sorry if these are obvious questions, but I think I've followed the
git-svn instructions -- I must have made a mistake somewhere along the
way, but I'm not sure how to debug and/or fix it.

I think you should have the permissions to do this Andrew so give it a
shot and let me know if you encounter any problems.

BTW, hexbin has been really useful to me -- I made a couple of
enhancements (adding the marginal distributions, suppressing cells
where mincnt < some threshold) so check them out with your use cases.

Hi Mike, This sounds like good news. I am swamped right now, but I hope
to get the git mirror on github up-to-date early next week when work is
a little less busy.

John (or any developer with SF admin capabilities), if we could set up
some kind of auto-notification on SVN commits, I could possibly set up a
script to update the git repo. The thing I've seen so far is to go to
the Sourceforge project page and under "Admin" selection "Subversion"
then at the bottom in the "Hooks" section, change the entry to
"ciabot_svn.py - Send commit stats to cia.navi.cx". If you could do
that, from there I will attempt to take things to auto-update the git
mirror.
