50 most recent check-ins by user wyoung

Clarity pass on the definition of "Project" in the glossary, removing redundancies and simplifying the illlustrative examples. Also clarified the purpose of the bullet points after each definition. ... (check-in: db6674638a user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Small tweaks to the gitusers doc ... (check-in: 3bfae2309c user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Squished a potential null pointer dereference in th.c caught by ubsan. ... (check-in: 39cac07254 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Replaced a few sprintf() calls with sqlite3_snprintf() to squish warnings from Clang on macOS when configured with extra debugging. (These warnings don't normally appear.) There is one left in extsrc/shell.c which needs fixing upstream. ... (check-in: dfa41afeab user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Whitespace fix in previous ... (check-in: f8bec8f74c user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Removal of the Tcl example in §5.5 of the containers doc left hanging references in the Python example in a few places. ... (check-in: 40e537e94d user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Added §5.6 to the containers doc, "Email Alerts," explaining how to get email alerts out by use of the included tools/email-sender.tcl script and the "write mail to DB" feature since the default option (sendmail -ti) won't work by default and it wouldn't be appropriate to make it work besides. This then obviated the earlier half-baked advice on injecting a Tcl environment into the container; the essential point is adequately made by the Python example, so there is no point trying to rescue this plan. ... (check-in: 616a37f4f7 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Untangled some awkward grammar in the new doc section ... (check-in: 383f6d4f1a user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Backed off on the strength of the disapprobation in the new "Converting Repositories on Windows" doc section, being both unnecessary and possibly wrong. ... (check-in: 3e464b0265 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Added the "Converting Repositories on Windows" section to the inout doc to cover a problem case involving PowerShell and to give solutions. ... (check-in: 19c347b460 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Added "unicode61" to search setup usage message ... (check-in: 9965e1d86f user: wyoung tags: trunk)

Fixed a typo in an error message ... (check-in: f25da6ec97 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Improved the documentation for quote parsing in globs. ... (check-in: 609bf98b06 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Fix to the prior commit: editing lost a closing "*/" in a comment, yet it compiled with only a warning, and I missed the warning. ... (check-in: c5d287b66b user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Updated all of "fossil help *-glob" output to refer to the syntax docs instead of repeating the parsing rules in each setting, incorrectly. (If URLs in help output are verboten, then we need to repeat the rules *correctly* in each setting's help.) ... (check-in: 7dc0433b54 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Added a few named anchors to the globs doc, added a mention of the new empty-dirs handling, and improved the internal MD markup style. ... (check-in: b293b265a6 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Brought the globs doc back into line with the underlying implementation, and to mention the new treatement of the empty-dirs setting's value. ... (check-in: 2c0b70eb5a user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Switched the empty-dirs setting handler from a one-off parser to glob_create() both so we get consistent behavior across the settings and because glob_create() allows quoted whitespace, needed when asking it to create directories with spaces in them. Addresses [forum:/forumpost/bdbb295ee308c9d6 | this forum report]. ... (check-in: f12609fcaa user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Updated the function comment on glob_create() to match what it actually does. ... (check-in: c43205d738 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Replaced a complicated bit of logic with something slighlty less complicated, having the same effect. The glob parser used a mix of second-clause for-loop testing and internal break and continue checks without any other internal processing inside the loop. Combining all of this into a single expression requires the line to wrap (bad for clarity) but it does make clear all of the conditions required for this loop to continue iterating. I think it's a net improvement in clarity, though the margin is admittedly small. Testing shows no regression in functionality, limiting this non-functional change to a style improvement. ... (check-in: b878923997 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Reworked the prior commit's changelog entry to be more accurate and to match preexisting style. ... (check-in: 8ce70b4c0c user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Fixed a symmetry problem in the vfile.chnged implementation: it had an explicit check for when a file used to be a regular file and was replaced by a symlink pointing to the same content, but it didn't then check for the inverse case. Since the size and hash checks become nonsense when both files aren't of the same type (whether symlinks or regular files) we have to check for this case, too, else the only way to get the "UNLINK" output from "fossil status" required trickery. See [forum:/forumpost/204ff988263d7795 | this forum post] for a test case and the trick previously needed to get Fossil to report "UNLINK" as a file's change status. ... (check-in: 4cca90338a user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Moved the "sync is all-or-nothing" section of the gitusers doc above the autosync section. The order of those two isn't important, and it's better that autosync flow immediately into the new "reset" section without this as a digression. ... (check-in: b47b96a0eb user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Clarity pass on the new material in the Autosync section of the gitusers doc. ... (check-in: cc55044b39 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Added a link from the new "git reset" example in the intro of the gitusers doc to the new section where we address the matter. ... (check-in: 84955715f5 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Clarity pass on the autosync section of the gitusers doc ... (check-in: 80963ffeda user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Added a new section "Resetting the Repository" to the gitusers doc, following and relying on the two recently-updated sections. ... (check-in: bd7b10998d user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Added a motivating example to the "Autosync" section of the gitusers doc, showing why it's better to let the software system resolve conflicts asynchronously than to force Alice and Bob to fight it out, moving the synchronization point out into the human-time workflow. ... (check-in: 8975e8daf1 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Clarified the "Sync Is All-or-Nothing" section of the gitusers doc, adding a reference to the cap-theorem doc and dropping the "eventually-consistent" buzzword to explain *why* it's all-or-nothing. ... (check-in: 35b2307f9c user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Made the msmtp mention in the alerts doc more concrete now that we have [forum:/forumpost/75f63cc0a1 | a verified tester]. ... (check-in: ea74c83adc user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Removed all of the XML-style " />" tag closing markers on empty tags such as "hr", "br", and "input" to placate modern HTML5 validators. That's the doctype we declare, not XHTML, so we should conform. (Besides which, the XHTML dream is dead.) ... (check-in: f5482a0a79 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Small fix to previous ... (check-in: 5537d9c2fa user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Replaced use of the obsolete (because presentational) "center" tag in the docs with CSS equivalents. ... (check-in: 4d21ec88ea user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Added an alt attribute on the home page's Fossil logo ... (check-in: ccf117feab user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Fixed a manual section numbering duplication in the delta encoding algorithm doc. ... (check-in: d83f2490b3 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
A prior edit to the quickstart doc left a vestigial version of the "Making and Committing Changes" section behind, resulting in duplicate information and a second h2 section with the same fragment ID. Some differences existed between the two presentations, so merged them rather than nuke the smaller (presumably older) one outright. ... (check-in: 39beee4c9d user: wyoung tags: trunk)
In an effort to make www/* source documents read as cleanly as their rendered counterparts, replaced nearly all use of HTML "p" tags, relying instead on the Wiki and Markdown markup features to achieve the same appearance. The only uses remaining are: * in Markdown nested lists, where blank lines should render the list items as separate paragraphs just as at the list's top level; since it does not, if you want a line break, you either have to wrap the item in "p" tags or do the double-br hack. * in Wiki where blank lines within a list give you a separate list in the HTML output; this is fine for bullet lists, but with numbered lists it causes the numbering to restart unless you do the same sort of manual HTML workaround as with the prior item * in plain HTML docs and wiki docs between "nowiki" tags In many places, this cleanup gets rid of pointless stray "p" tags, placating HTML verifiers. ... (check-in: 1fd407f61a user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Stray character deleted ... (check-in: 0cb4f1fc5e user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Replaced use of HTML "p" tags in the doc with hard line breaks, letting the wiki language add the same "p" tags on output. Replaced some of them with "tt" tags instead to make command text stand out from the prose. Added "tt" tags elsewhere for consistency. ... (check-in: 262eb510df user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Added explicit SIGINT handler for the rootful container (PID 1) case, so you can Ctrl-C it when "run -it". ... (check-in: a0b0d8f998 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Set permissions on /bin/fossil inside the container to 755, not 700. Docker doesn't care since it runs everything as virtual-root, but Podman does. Also, it complicates the extraction of a static binary since you probably didn't want it set to 700 root:root out on the host, too. ... (check-in: 260efac1da user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Assorted cleanups to the Dockerfile: disentangled use of /tmp for building and creation of the eventual contents of /etc, dropped an unnecessary directory hierarchy level, removed an unused variable, whitespace fixes, etc. No functional change. ... (check-in: f9bd6273d9 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Typo squish in the server doc section's index page ... (check-in: 4158e5e2a8 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Made the URL matcher more specific in the nginx doc when showing how to get long expiration times on URLs known to yield unchanging content so we can drop the warning about it affecting URLs more likley to change. Added a second example for images, CSS, JS and such to show how you might handle these differently, addressing the core issue by example than by prose warning. ... (check-in: f77ab1970c user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Added a bit more advice about caching to previous, and fixed a whitespace problem. ... (check-in: 4d5a647735 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Improved the caching configuration recommended in the nginx doc to show the option for immutable content service for /artifact, /doc, /file, and /raw URLs, which are likely to contain hashes that make the URLs unique identifiers for particular versions of the referenced content. ... (check-in: 1d0d69866d user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Tiny tweaks to the systemd doc ... (check-in: 0835ec45a4 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Added a paragraph to the unvers doc on the "y" capability. ... (check-in: faffd27192 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
Modernized the URL format in the unvers doc: using an actual (reserved) domain name instead of the vague "domain", showing it as "https" since "http" is widely deprecated, and using "tt" tags around it to make it stand out from the surrounding sans-serif text and to prevent it from breaking across word-wrap boundaries. ... (check-in: d1a3dda6a7 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
