The following template description is not displayed when the template is inserted in an article.
Note  The Gitorious open source infrastructure is locked in a read-only archived state.


This template is for creating links or URLs to merge requests within the version control repositories of the Gitorious open source infrastructure. It is a subtemplate of the master {{repo link}} template designed to be specific for the Gitorious merge requests.


{{gitorious merge request
| proj       =
| repo       =
| mr         =
| path       =
| line       =

| view       =
| text       =
| pre        =
| simplepath =
| full       =

The proj and repo parameters must be supplied. All other parameters are optional.

Parameter Description Abbreviated
proj The name of the project, consisting of a grouping of repositories on the open source infrastructure.This defaults to fg. p 1 mandatory
repo The name of the repository. A project registered on one of the open source infrastructures generally allows for multiple repositories under that project name.This defaults to fg. r 2 mandatory
mr The merge request number. If provided and if the other parameters are present, this overrides any commit, tag, or branch parameter values. 3 optional
path The file or directory path. f 4 optional
line The line number(s) of the file to display.
  • For the Gitorious archive: Use a single line number.
l optional
view View to display:
  • For the Gitorious archive use one of summary, shortlog, log, blob, commit, commitdiff, patch, tree, history, or raw. The default is commit if a merge request is supplied, blob if a path is given, commit if a commit is given, shortlog if a branch is given, or summary otherwise.
v optional
text Text to display as the link label. Overrides pre. t optional
pre Prefix to a link label. optional
simplepath If set, this strips off the repository name from the URL label, leaving just the contents of the path parameter.
Note The text parameter will override this.
full If set to 1, the full URL will be shown rather than any text label. optional


In this section, the following notation will be used:

Angular brackets + lower case text <xyz>
Template parameters.
Angular brackets + upper case text <XYZ>
Template constructed text.
Square brackets [xyz]
Optional text, only added if the parameter is set.
Or symbol |
The value on the left, if present, otherwise the value on the right of the symbol.


The general design is:

<cmd> <opt> [<URL> <TEXT>] <post>

Here the square brackets do not denote optional text, but will instead produce a Mediawiki link. This can be modified by setting full = 1 to produce:

<cmd> <opt> <URL> <post>

Site: Gitorious

The Gitorious URLs are predominantly query rather than path based. And only the https:// protocol is supported. The base URL constructed by this template is:


Gitorious <URL> for 'type=git'

For this parameter value, the complete <URL> value will be:


Gitorious <URL> for 'type=git web'

As the current archival system is based on queries — the text after the ? character — absolutely any random path after the gitorious.org/ domain name can be used. But, for aesthetics, the project and repository name will be appended by this template. The <URL> will be:


The <QUERY> string consists of parts for the project and repository (p=), the type of view (a=), the path (f=), and the commit, branch or tag (h= or hb=, depending on the view). The <URL> fragment for the project and repository is constructed as:


The <URL> fragment for the view is constructed as:


Where <VIEW> is the value of the view parameter, if supplied, with the value of raw translated to blob_plain. If not supplied, the value of blob is used if path is given, commit if commit is given, or summary otherwise. The <URL> fragment for the path is constructed as:


If the view parameter is set to one of blob, raw, or tree, the <URL> fragment for the commit, branch or tag is constructed as:


Otherwise it will be:


In summary, the full web URL will be:


Gitorious URL <TEXT>

The link text <TEXT>, if the full parameter is not set, will be:


If the simplepath parameter is set, this changes to:


If the pre parameter is supplied, this changes to:


The text parameter trumps all, and <TEXT> is simply:


Plain text

To create a URL or link as plain text and avoid external links, simply use the {{#tag:tagname|content}} magic word construct:

  {{repo link
  | full = 1


To use the <code> tags:

  {{repo link
  | full = 1



Default view

This is for https://gitorious.org/fg/fgdata?p=fg:fgdata.git;a=commit;h=refs/merge-requests/100.

{{gitorious source
| proj = fg
| repo = fgdata
| mr   = merge-requests/100
| full = 1


Commit view

This is for https://gitorious.org/fg/fgdata?p=fg:fgdata.git;a=commit;h=refs/merge-requests/190.

{{gitorious source
| proj = fg
| repo = fgdata
| view = commit
| mr   = merge-requests/190


Or as a URL:

{{gitorious source
| proj = fg
| repo = fgdata
| view = commit
| mr   = merge-requests/190
| full = 1
