do not require gotd(8) to be installed in /usr/local; dev builds go to ~/bin/

avoid printing harmless errors that can occur when tog exits due to Ctrl-C ok jamsek

fix typo in gotsh.1 ok stsp@

fix detection of SIGTERM in tog; this signal was accidentally being ignored ok jamsek

close parent's end of imsg pipe before waiting for a child process to exit Prevents a dead-lock in 'tog log' where tog wants to exit (e.g. because the user pressed Ctrl-C) while a got-read-pack child process wants to send more commits. Closing the parent's pipe descriptor makes writes to the pipe fail in the child process. The child then unwinds via an ERR_EOF error and exits, instead of forever polling its end of the pipe in order to write more data. ok jamsek

allow gotsh(1) to be installed as git-receive-pack and git-upload-pack in $PATH

introduce gotd(8), a Git repository server reachable via ssh(1) This is an initial barebones implementation which provides the absolute minimum of functionality required to serve got(1) and git(1) clients. Basic fetch/send functionality has been tested and seems to work here, but this server is not yet expected to be stable. More testing is welcome. See the man pages for setup instructions. The current design uses one reader and one writer process per repository, which will have to be extended to N readers and N writers in the future. At startup, each process will chroot(2) into its assigned repository. This works because gotd(8) can only be started as root, and will then fork+exec, chroot, and privdrop. At present the parent process runs with the following pledge(2) promises: "stdio rpath wpath cpath proc getpw sendfd recvfd fattr flock unix unveil" The parent is the only process able to modify the repository in a way that becomes visible to Git clients. The parent uses unveil(2) to restrict its view of the filesystem to /tmp and the repositories listed in the configuration file gotd.conf(5). Per-repository chroot(2) processes use "stdio rpath sendfd recvfd". The writer defers to the parent for modifying references in the repository to point at newly uploaded commits. The reader is fine without such help, because Git repositories can be read without having to create any lock-files. gotd(8) requires a dedicated user ID, which should own repositories on the filesystem, and a separate secondary group, which should not have filesystem-level repository access, and must be allowed access to the gotd(8) socket. To obtain Git repository access, users must be members of this secondary group, and must have their login shell set to gotsh(1). gotsh(1) connects to the gotd(8) socket and speaks Git-protocol towards the client on the other end of the SSH connection. gotsh(1) is not an interactive command shell. At present, authenticated clients are granted read/write access to all repositories and all references (except for the "refs/got/" and the "refs/remotes/" namespaces, which are already being protected from modification). While complicated access control mechanism are not a design goal, making it possible to safely offer anonymous Git repository access over ssh(1) is on the road map.

refresh cached list of pack index paths while searching a packed object Previously, this list was only refreshed while trying to match an object ID prefix. Regular pack file access needs to refresh this list, too. In particular, future gotd(8) needs this to ensure that newly uploaded packfiles are picked up as expected.

switch integers used for counting objects while indexing pack files to unsigned

provide a more useful error if the size of a packed object won't fit in 64 bits

let callers of got_pack_index() configure the rate limit of progress reporting

move pack indexing code into new file lib/pack_index.c Prepares for sharing code between got-index-pack and future gotd(8).

allow got_object_parse_tree to reuse entries buffer allocations for speed ok millert@

let callers of got_pack_create() configure rate-limiting of progress reporting Needed by future gotd(8), where progress reports will be sent to a network socket, rather than a local terminal.

do not crash if no delta cache is present while parsing deltas

move privsep code from pack_create.c into new file pack_create_privsep.c Needed by future gotd(8). ok op@

handle unlink(2) errors for mergepath, tmppath, and apath in apply_patch() ok op@

introduce got_path_move_file(); based on code from lib/patch.c ok op@

check for unlink(2) errors and don't try to unlink an already renamed file ok op@

check for unlink(2) errors in got_opentempfd() ok op@

check for unlink(2) errors with the == -1 idiom, rather than != 0 ok op@

move got_opentempfd() call out of got_pack_create() Future gotd(8) needs to run got_pack_create() in a chroot environment, so we can no longer open new temporary files inside got_pack_create(). ok op@

make got_pack_create() write to a file descriptor instead of a stdio FILE The old code required a seekable output file. This conflicts with requirements of future gotd(8), which will write pack file data to network sockets. ok op@
