I do not care very deeply either way. I am more interested in seeing --tool-list options supported by both so that we can get rid of hardcoded list from the completion script. > This drops the explicit mention of --tool-help as an option in the > documentation compared to my patch.

While I do not think having one would hurt that much, I do not think a separate entry would add much value either, so I chose not to clutter the documentation further. The "--tool=<tool>" entry is enough hint to draw eyes of readers who want to find out what kind of backends are supported, and --tool-help is mentioned there quite prominently. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
