Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-11937) Update patch submission guidelines to stop using --no-prefix
Date Wed, 10 Sep 2014 22:26:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11937?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14129251#comment-14129251

Sean Busbey commented on HBASE-11937:

A committer should first see if the patch applies cleanly to master. This works the same regardless
of which git command created the patch.

$> git fetch origin
$> git checkout master
$> git rebase origin/master
$> git checkout example-checking-HBASE-11891
$> git apply --check /some/path/to/patches/HBASE-11891.patch

No output means things are fine. Failures look like this:

$ git apply --check /some/path/to/patches/HBASE-11891.old.patch 
error: patch failed: hbase-client/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/client/ClusterStatusListener.java:34
error: hbase-client/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/client/ClusterStatusListener.java:
patch does not apply
error: patch failed: hbase-common/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/HBaseInterfaceAudience.java:29
error: hbase-common/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/HBaseInterfaceAudience.java: patch
does not apply
error: patch failed: hbase-common/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/codec/CellCodec.java:25
error: hbase-common/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/codec/CellCodec.java: patch does
not apply
error: patch failed: hbase-common/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/codec/CellCodecWithTags.java:25
error: hbase-common/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/codec/CellCodecWithTags.java: patch
does not apply

If the patch doesn't apply, the contributor should updated it for the current master.

A committer can tell if the patch was made with git format-patch (rather than git diff) if
it begins with a header that looks like an email message:

Subject: [PATCH] HBASE-11891 Introduce an HBaseInterfaceAudience level to
 denote class names that appear in configs.


If the patch was made with format patch, then they should use {{git am}} to apply.

$ git am /some/path/to/format-patch/patches/HBASE-11891.patch 
Applying: HBASE-11891 Introduce an HBaseInterfaceAudience level to denote class names that
appear in configs.

This will place a commit in the current local branch, which you can interact with normally
via git commands.

If the patch was mad with git diff, then they should use {{git apply}} to apply.

$ git apply /some/path/to/diff/patches/HBASE-11891.patch 

No output means things worked fine. This approach won't add a commit; instead all changes
will be on the current working directory.

$ git status
# On branch example-checking-HBASE-11891
# Changes not staged for commit:
#   (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
#   (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working directory)
#	modified:   hbase-client/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/client/ClusterStatusListener.java
#	modified:   hbase-common/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/HBaseInterfaceAudience.java
#	modified:   hbase-common/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/codec/CellCodec.java

For patches created with {{git diff}} a committer can also use the {{patch}} command to apply
changes locally.

$ patch -p1 < /some/path/to/diff/patches/HBASE-11891.patch 
patching file hbase-client/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/client/ClusterStatusListener.java
patching file hbase-common/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/HBaseInterfaceAudience.java
patching file hbase-common/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/codec/CellCodec.java
patching file hbase-common/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/codec/CellCodecWithTags.java

This should give you a working directory that is the same as the one created by {{git apply}}.

At this point you can interact with the local changes as you would with local modifications
you made.

>            Priority: Minor
> Right now the submission guidelines include the use of --no-prefix in the Methods to
Create Patches section:
> {quote}
> Git
> git format-patch is preferred because it preserves commit messages. Use git squash first,
to combine smaller commits into a single larger one.
> * git format-patch --no-prefix origin/master --stdout > HBASE-XXXX.patch
> * git diff --no-prefix origin/master > HBASE-XXXX.patch
> {quote}
> The use of --no-prefix means that users of {{git apply}} and {{git am}} have to know
to specify {{-p0}} and (which strips 0 levels of prefix). Both of those tools default to stripping
the 1 level of prefix git makes by default.
> The guide for HBase committers section on reviewing doesn't give any suggestions on how
to apply patches from contributors. It should probably give examples for using {{git am}}
and {{git apply}}.
