    branch.c: use 'ref-filter' APIs · aedcb7dc
    karthik nayak authored
    Make 'branch.c' use 'ref-filter' APIs for iterating through refs
    sorting. This removes most of the code used in 'branch.c' replacing it
    with calls to the 'ref-filter' library.
    Make 'branch.c' use the 'filter_refs()' function provided by 'ref-filter'
    to filter out tags based on the options set.
    We provide a sorting option provided for 'branch.c' by using the
    sorting options provided by 'ref-filter'. Also by default, we sort by
    'refname'.  Since 'HEAD' is alphabatically before 'refs/...' we end up
    with an array consisting of the 'HEAD' ref then the local branches and
    finally the remote-tracking branches.
    Also remove the 'ignore' variable from ref_array_item as it was
    previously used for the '--merged' option and now that is handled by
    Modify some of the tests in t1430 to check the stderr for a warning
    regarding the broken ref. This is done as ref-filter throws a warning
    for broken refs rather than directly printing them.
    Add tests and documentation for the same.
