We are not much happy with global variable fetch_if_missing. So, in commit
6462d5eb9a ("fetch: remove fetch_if_missing=0", 2019-11-08) Jonathan Tan 
jonathantanmy@google.com [jonathantanmy@google.com] attempted to remove the
need for fetch_if_missing=0 from the fetching mechanism. After that, 
fetch_if_missing is removed from clone and promisor-remote too.

I imitated the same logic to remove fetch_if_missing from fetch-pack & 
index-pack.

I'm looking forward to remove fetch_if_missing from other places too, but I
not sure about how to handle it.

In fsck, fetch_if_missing is set to 0 in the beginning of cmd_fsck().

In rev-list, fetch_if_missing is set to 0 in parse_missing_action_value(),
and in cmd_rev_list() while parsing the command-line parameters.(almost
similar case in pack-objects)

fixes #251

You might want to add Jonathan in Cc next time, as it could help your
patches move forward. I have added him to this email.

Maybe you could add a few tests as in 6462d5eb9a.

It is ok to not take care of the other places for now. If that was the
only reason why this patch series is marked as WIP, then you might
want to remove WIP, especially if you add tests.

It would be nice if you could give the full URL of the bug, as there
have been different bug trackers used by different people.

Thanks,
Christian.

It's ok to refer to a previous commit, but I think it would be better
if you could repeat a bit the reasons why removing the
fetch_if_missing global is a good idea, and not just rely on the
previous commit.

"it is plausible" also doesn't make it very clear that it's what the
patch is actually doing.

Thanks,
Christian.

I had the same reaction.  You could even write a random gibberish in
your patch and write "it's plausible this set of random changes made
without understanding what is going on in the current code might
have some chance to work" in your log message, and we would not even
want to touch such a patch with 10-foot pole.

The proposed log message above unfortunately makes this patch
indistinguishable from such a trash, unless we follow the codepaths
that are *not* touched by this patch and think about ramifications
of the removal *ourselves*.  In other words, it does nothing to help
the readers to support the change.

As Christian said [1], please include tests like in the commit you
mentioned. For a change like this, I think that the test is the most
important part.

Also include a justification for why it's safe to remove
fetch_if_missing=0. You can probably cite the aforementioned commit to
say that it covers the fetch_pack() method, and then go through the rest
of the code to see if any may inadvertently fetch an object.

Also, the fetch-pack and index-pack parts can be sent in separate patch
sets, so you might want to concentrate on one command first.

Hmm...this triggers when the user requests a clone that is both partial
and shallow, and the server reports a shallow object that it didn't send
back as a packfile; and it causes another fetch to be sent. This is a
separate issue, but Hariom, if you'd like to take a look at this, that
would work out too. You'll need to figure out how to make the server
send back shallow lines referencing objects that are not in the packfile
- one way to do it is to use one-time-perl. (Search the codebase to see
how it is used.) This is probably more complex, though.

I'll remove it, after writing tests.

I'll do this in future versions.

I understand it must be too hard for you to deal with such [trash]patches.
My apologies. Will improve in next revision

I'm clueless about "one-time-perl" thing(till now!). Will surely going
to learn about that.

Thanks for the nice explanation.

Hi,

Are you still working on this? If not, then I would like to take this up
and write the tests, if it is worth doing. I think it would be a better
exposure of the codebase and would be helpful for GSoC.

I don't know what's the state of this. I think only Hariom could answer.

I am not so sure it will be helpful for any of the GSoC project ideas
we propose, but feel free to work on it if you want.

Thanks,
Christian.

Well, I wanted to work on something before I started working on my application
and found this to be fun. So even if it would not really be
helpful for the project ideas proposed, I would still like to work on it as
something that could go into my application.

Thanks,
Kousik

Sure, you can mention anything you did related to the project in your
application and we will take it into account.

Thanks,
Christian.

I'm not working on it. Feel free to take it forward.

So here, we are partial-cloning from a shallow remote and some
objects are not sent due to our clone filters. Let's say that
the shallow remote has a 5-commit history and we are cloning it
into another repository with a blob:none filter. The expected
behavior is cloning the 5 commits, with no blobs, except
for the HEAD.

When executing the above process, it leads to errors:

	fatal: the remote end hung up unexpectedly
	fatal: protocol error: bad pack header
	warning: Clone succeeded, but checkout failed
	You can inspect what was checked out with 'git status'
	and retry with 'git restore --source=HEAD :/'

I looked into it a bit and it seems that packet_read() is not
successful. I'm not really sure how packet reading fits into
the big picture but it looks like the buffer is not read
completely.

It is a similar case with "bad pack header" too. The function
read_pack_header() fails because the pack header was not fully read.

Also, is the shallow object not sent when cloning due to the partial
clone filter and hence a subsequent fetching is done to ask for this
object? If so, then will such a fetch counted as an args->update_shallow?

Sorry, it seems that I misunderstood the whole situation here. I didn't
realize that the problem was on my end and not something to do with the
code. Please ignore the above email except for the last question, which
I still don't seem to understand. So, I would be grateful if you could
clarify.

Thanks,
Kousik

What do you mean by the shallow object? If you mean the last commit that
is sent (that is, without its parents), then that is a commit and is not
excluded by the filter.

As for args->update_shallow, that's a good question. Just glancing at
the code, even if it is set, I don't think there would be any difference
in operation since the lazy fetch does not fetch any refs (and in fact,
in protocol v2, we skip the ref advertisement in this case, as far as I
can remember).
