WIP: use `cygpath.exe` to convert Windows paths and respect mount-points #639

wants to merge 6 commits into from

@ankostis ankostis commented Jul 4, 2017

Currently the /cygdrive/ mount-point is hard-coded in GitPython's conversions git/ since version 2.1.3 that Cygwin support was added. This PR purports to use Cygwin's cygpath -w | -u utility for path conversions.
An added benefit is support out-of-the-box for MSYS2 which is a Cygwin clone based on the excellent pacman package manager that (at last) mounts Windows-drives under root(/).

It is still a WorkInProgress (WIP) because although all travis TCs pass on the POSIX part, appveyor now fails on all non-Cygwin builds; prior to this PR, it was only Cygwin builds that were failing in a couple of TCs:

@ankostis I happen to be on a merge-spree right now and wonder if this one is ready. Also I know you could just merge yourself when ready, I am just wondering :). Thank you.

Sorry, I cannot respond confidently.
I have imported this as hotfix in my code without any side-effect working on MSYS2 & Cygwin (less confident) for the last 2-3 months.

But still not all TCs pass, but have no time to fix them.
I would wait for them to be fixed; we already have 2 "worktree" TCs failing in Cygwin, so better not make it any worse than that.

Apologies for me not being available.
