gitrepo: Call git with '-c diff.ignoreSubmodules=none' #5453

@kyleam kyleam commented Mar 3, 2021

Prevent a save failure when diff.ignoreSubmodules is configured to a non-default value.

Fixes #3462.

GitRepo's _GIT_COMMON_OPTIONS is used in _call_git(), _call_annex(),
and AnnexRepo._batched, but several places in GitRepo construct a git
command without _GIT_COMMON_OPTIONS.  This doesn't matter at the
moment because it's an empty list, but it will once an upcoming commit
adds an option.

Audit the git calls in GitRepo, adding _GIT_COMMON_OPTIONS to them.
Also move _GIT_COMMON_OPTIONS to a class attribute so that it can be
used in the class method clone().
test_cfg_originorigin() checks that git-annex-init is called by
looking at the log output, but it doesn't account for the fact that
_GIT_COMMON_OPTIONS can come between "git" and "annex".  At the
moment, this passes because _GIT_COMMON_OPTIONS is empty, but that
will no longer be the case with the next commit.
If a user has configured diff.ignoreSubmodules to a value other than
the default "none", get_content_info() and friends will see the
submodule changes (as intended and expected by the code) because the
low-level commands used are not affected by diff.ignoreSubmodules.
However, a save_() call will fail at the git-commit step when the only
modifications are those that would be ignored according to the
diff.ignoreSubmodules setting.

Configure diff.ignoreSubmodules=none for all our git calls because
ignoring submodules isn't something we currently account for and
probably not something we want to support.

Fixes datalad#3462.

LGTM! Thx! The appveyor failure seems to be a fluke, I restarted it.
