StGIT uses .git/patchdescr.tmpl as the template, where people can put the a line like "STG: vim: textwidth=75" which will be automatically removed. I won't include this patch since it is up to the user to define whatever setting he/she wants for his editor (I use emacs myself and add something like "STG: -*- mode: text; -*-" on the first line) > Cogito seems to use $GIT_DIR/commit-template for that purpose. > Can't users put that "vim:" hint there, and if StGIT does not > use a commit template, patch it to use the same file as Cogito > does? I would use a neutral commit template, only that it should have a neutral prefix as well for the lines to be removed (neither STG nor CG but GIT maybe). The $GIT_DIR/commit-template is fine as a file name. -- Catalin - 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
