Is that a problem?
I haven't tried that yet, nor do I remember anything where I've already seen two processes writing to the same pipe. At least it sounds cumbersome to me. Processes' lifetimes overlap, so buffering and flushing could mix data. We have to use it for both purposes interchangably because there can be more than one import command to the remote-helper, of course. Will try that in test-program.. -- 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
