The unusual syntax --rebase-merges="" (that is, --rebase-merges with an
empty string argument) has been an undocumented synonym of
--rebase-merges=no-rebase-cousins. Stop accepting that syntax to avoid
confusion when a rebase.merges config option is introduced, where
rebase.merges="" will be equivalent to not passing --rebase-merges.

The purpose of the new option is to accommodate users who would like
--rebase-merges to be on by default and to facilitate possibly turning
on --rebase-merges by default without configuration in a future version
of Git.

Thanks for improving the commit message, this seems like a reasonable 
change.

Below I see this takes a boolean in addition to [no-]rebase-cousins, it 
would be nice to document that, especially what "true" means.

rebase_merges is guaranteed to be non-NULL if git_config_string returns 0.

I think this leaks rebase_merges as git_config_string() returns a copy 
despite taking a "const char*".

If we're adding a new config option that is incompatible with the apply 
backend we should add some logic to error out if the config is set and 
any of the apply options are given - see eddfcd8ece (rebase: provide 
better error message for apply options vs. merge config, 2023-01-25)

test_config is generally preferred as it clears the value at the end of 
the test. Then you don't need the final hunk of this patch.

Thanks for the tests, I think they provide good coverage of the various 
combinations of config and commandline settings

I think this is sensible in the context of adding a config option. It is 
a backwards incompatible change though, lets hope no one was relying on 
it. Is there a particular reason you decided to redo the option parsing 
rather than just calling parse_merges_value() from the existing "if 
(rebase_merges)" block? I don't think it really matters, I'm just curious.

This test looks good. I think we could probably have just this second 
test and squash this into the previous patch - improving the 
documentation and test coverage for --no-rebase-merges would make a nice 
self-contained commit.

Hi Alex

Thanks for working on this series, I think it is going in a sensible 
direction. I think the final patch needs a little bit of work but 
they're all looking good.

The test is modeled after the existing test "do not rebase cousins
unless asked for". First, it verifies that --rebase-merges rebases the
merges, which in this case results in no changes to the branch. Then,
it verifies that `git rebase` without arguments flattens the history.

I like having a test for the default behavior. Nevertheless, I am
happy to remove that test as requested. Does anyone else have an
opinion?

Sure, squashing the first two patches is no problem.

Thanks for the feedback,

Since the syntax is bizarre and undocumented, I doubt anyone is
relying on it for anything serious, if anyone uses it at all.

Without a parse_opt_merges callback, how could we know whether the
user passed --no-rebase-merges as opposed to passing nothing at all?
const char *rebase_merges would be NULL in either case. It's an
important distinction to make because --no-rebase-merges overrides
rebase.merges but the absence of a command-line argument does not.

All the same, your comment made me realize that it would probably make
more sense to simply change the default value of --rebase-cousins from
"" to "no-rebase-cousins" in this patch and then add the
parse_opt_merges callback in the next patch when it is actually
needed.

I meant --rebase-merges, sorry. --rebase-cousins obviously isn't a thing.

Good point. I'll add another sentence explaining that "true" is
equivalent to --rebase-merges without arguments and "false" is
equivalent to --no-rebase-merges.

Come to think of it, I don't think we need git_config_string at all
here. As far as I can tell, it should be fine to just check (value &&
*value) and not duplicate the string in memory.

I've used test_config before but I forgot about it. Thanks for the reminder.

I think "do not rebase cousins unless asked for" is a bit different 
because it is checking the default for --rebase-merges which seems 
reasonable. I cannot see the point of checking that --rebase-merges 
works in this test as we have a whole file of tests that already do that.

Best Wishes

Phillip

The usual way we handle that is to set the value of rebase_merges from 
the config before calling parse_options(). However your solution is fine.

Sounds good

Is it?  If it is not too much to ask, I'd prefer to have code that
does not surprise people, and "the usual way" you mentioned is what
readers around here expect to see.  I didn't check and think about
the patch in quetion, and especially the existing code that the
patch needs to touch, too deeply, so if it is too convoluted already
that it would be a lot of work to make it work in "the usual way",
it may be OK, but otherwise, the solution may not be fine. 

Thanks.

There was a const char *rebase_merges in cmd_rebase and an int
rebase_merges in struct rebase_options. I deleted const char
*rebase_merges, leaving only int rebase_merges. int rebase_merges is
set from rebase_config before it is set from parse_options.

Do you want me to add back const char *rebase_merges? If so, where
should it be declared so that it can be set from both rebase_config
and parse_options?

I've removed the test in v4. Thanks again for the feedback.
