Right. That's perfectly acceptable -- and that's the reason why I think it's also fine to keep the timezone and the rename information in there too. If we were being _really_ anal about auxiliary information being separate, we'd stick it in a separate blob object and merely refer to it from the commit object. I don't think there's really any call to take it that far, though. -- dwmw2 - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to [EMAIL PROTECTED] More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
