Notation anomaly of symmetric/asymmetric between rev-list and diff

I am trying to understand the rationale (if there is one) for the difference in notation between git diff vs. git rev-list or git log. Clarification: I understand what each command does, as I explain below. I am only looking for an explanation as to why Git would use the same notation in two different […]

git format-patch in multiple-branch setup

1. Abstract My ultimate goal is to bring some Client’s changes done on a Client’s branch in the linux-kernel repo to another linux-kernel repository, given the fact that both have a common base tag (e.g. v4.2, from which the Client’s branch has been initially created). For that I am trying to create a stack of […]

git shallow cloned repo

I’m trying to fork a large repository and I really don’t care about most of the history from the upstream repository, just the tips of a couple branches that I want to branch off for my own purposes. Using a shallow clone is sufficient locally but then I can’t push it to another repository. I […]

Update tagger of annotated tag

I have a git repo that came over from svn. I converted the tag branches to actual git tags. I have set $GIT_COMMITTER_NAME, $GIT_COMMITTER_EMAIL and $GIT_COMMITTER_DATE to $GIT_AUTHOR_NAME, $GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL and $GIT_AUTHOR_DATE for all commits, using git filter-branch. What I’m left with now, is that the Tagger of an annotated tag, is still different from the […]

git mirroring to GitHub and filtering private files

Currently working on a project. We want to open-source our day-to-day commits with full info (author, etc…) while filtering out some specific private folders. Let’s say I commit A/file1 and B/file2 in branch master, I would like to have it mirrored on GitHub with B folder filtered (this commit would only have A/file1). One way […]

Difference between git reset –hard <filename> and git checkout — <filename>

As far as I understand, git reset –hard will update in the index and working directory to whatever the HEAD points to? Git checkout — will update in working directory to whatever that file state in the INDEX is? So if is unstaged, then they will do the same thing (change the file in the […]
