Yeah, I have no real opinion here. I've never been a Tolkien fan, so I had no idea what "ent" even means, let alone its connection to anything Git-related (which is why the glossary entry caught my eye in the first place). I found it amusing and that's all; maybe other Git oldtimers have some kind of personal attachment to it? I have to admit that I don't remember seeing the word in any of various Git-related texts or discussions I've read in past ~3 years, so I agree its educative value is probably dubious nowadays. OTOH it's just a couple lines, _and_ amusing... ;-) I'll resend the patch with the entry removed if no break-through occurs during the next few days. >> diff --git a/Documentation/glossary-content.txt >> b/Documentation/glossary-content.txt >> index 3595b58..f928b57 100644 >> --- a/Documentation/glossary-content.txt >> +++ b/Documentation/glossary-content.txt >> @@ -117,7 +117,7 @@ to point at the new commit. >> >> [[def_ent]]ent:: >> Favorite synonym to "<<def_tree-ish,tree-ish>>" by some total geeks.
