The problematic one is git-send-email-script. I have to admit that it was a mistake to take that patch; I was trying to be _too_ inclusive. The script does not even read from nor write into a git repository, and the only relevance to git is that it is useful for people to patchbomb the list with git generated patches. In other words, the program may be useful, but its usefulness does not have much to do with git, so it does not belong to git. My short-term plan is to downgrade it to "contrib" status, and not touch it from the main Makefile. It will be in the 0.99.4 sources but will not be installed nor made into binary package. I hope Ryan does not mind this decision. After we audit the set of tools we currently ship, along with some other scripts/programs, either we remove it altogether from our source tree, or create a contrib/ subdirectory and move it there. - 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
