    push: add an advice on unqualified <dst> push · dd8dd300

    Add an advice to the recently improved error message added in
    f8aae120 ("push: allow unqualified dest refspecs to DWIM",
    2008-04-23).
    
    Now with advice.pushUnqualifiedRefName=true (on by default) we show a
    hint about how to proceed:
    
        $ ./git-push avar v2.19.0^{commit}:newbranch -n
        error: The destination you provided is not a full refname (i.e.,
        starting with "refs/"). We tried to guess what you meant by:
    
        - Looking for a ref that matches 'newbranch' on the remote side.
        - Checking if the <src> being pushed ('v2.19.0^{commit}')
          is a ref in "refs/{heads,tags}/". If so we add a corresponding
          refs/{heads,tags}/ prefix on the remote side.
    
        Neither worked, so we gave up. You must fully qualify the ref.
        hint: The <src> part of the refspec is a commit object.
        hint: Did you mean to create a new branch by pushing to
        hint: 'v2.19.0^{commit}:refs/heads/newbranch'?
        error: failed to push some refs to 'git@github.com:avar/git.git'
    
    When trying to push a tag, tree or a blob we suggest that perhaps the
    user meant to push them to refs/tags/ instead.
    
    The if/else duplication for all of OBJ_{COMMIT,TAG,TREE,BLOB} is
    unfortunate, but is required to correctly mark the messages for
    translation. See the discussion in
    <87r2gxebsi.fsf@evledraar.gmail.com> about that.
