From: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@gmx.de>

In c85eec7fc37 (commit-graph: when incompatible with graphs, indicate
why, 2021-02-11), we started warning the user if they tried to write a
commit-graph in a shallow repository, or one containing replace objects.

However, this patch was a bit overzealous, as Git now _also_ warns when
merely checking whether there _is_ a usable commit graph, not only when
writing one.

Let's suppress that warning unless we want to write a commit-graph.

    commit-graph: warn about incompatibilities only when trying to write
    
    As pointed out by Ævar in
    https://lore.kernel.org/git/87pn0o6y1e.fsf@evledraar.gmail.com, my
    recent patch to trigger warnings in repositories that are incompatible
    with the commit-graph was a bit too overzealous. Here is a fix for that.

Ah, so that's what it's for, as I suspected :) Unfortunately...

...I think it makes sense to have a "test_line_count = 1" here for these
sorts of warnings we know/suspect might come up N times if we don't
carefully tweak things.

I think (but have not tested) that we'll still write it 2 times if you
have the graph configured to write on fetch, and we end up also running
"gc" without gc.autoDetach.

In any case, here's a WIP patch to fix/demonstrate the bug here,
consider it to have my SOB (but no need to retain the authorship).

Obviously needs amending (e.g. the "0 &&" case, just to reproduce the
bug), and you might not want the s/int/enum/ cleanup while we're at it.

Also makes sense to add to add this case to the "gc --auto" test,
i.e. if we have writeCommitGraph=true && a --depth=1 repo do we have no
gc.log at the end as we should.

Leftover debugging cruft?

I would have expected the code would arrange to make the bit cleared
in the "flags" that would be passed around to the next call that
inspects the same bit, so that we won't need to see repeated
warning()s, but I do not see where it is done.

I am tempted to say that we should revert c85eec7f (commit-graph:
when incompatible with graphs, indicate why, 2021-02-11) for the
upcoming release.  That would give us enough time to come up with
and cook the solution in 'next' in the meantime.

Yeah, see the "Obviously needs amending" later in my E-Mail.

Right, we could do that, but I think the path down my "test_line_count =
1" is more useful.

I.e. it's pretty easy to reason about us not calling
write_commit_graph() twice in the same process, so I don't think such
flag clearing is needed.

But the case the user cares about is getting this warning twice when
they invoke git, but we spawn two processes.

That's probably sensible.

Also, I noticed that we went through this whole saga in the past, see
25575015ca (repack: silence warnings when auto-enabled bitmaps cannot be
built, 2019-07-31), including breaking background gc.

I agree. This close to v2.31.0, I do not want to rush things.

Sounds like it.
