By the way, by "would anything break", I do not just mean if our existing tests trigger failures from "test_expect_success"; I suspect some do assume the sorting behaviour. I am wondering if the sorting makes sense in the real users; in other words, if the failing tests, if any, are expecting sensible and useful behaviour. After all, the sorting by the commit timestamp is made solely to optimize the limit_list() which wants to traverse commits ancestry near the tip of the history, and sorting by the commit timestamp is done because it is usually a good and quick approximation for topological sorting. -- 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
