I agree that it's a bit strange, but based on a quick search, it seems multiple projects already advertise git pull -r (i.e. not --rebase and not a configuration option): http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.15/Documentation/contributor/pulling-and-rebasing http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Git_For_LibreOffice_Developers http://www.wiremod.com/forum/wiremod-general-chat/29517-git-introduction-incomplete-unformatted.html So it seems making -r refer to --recurse-submodules would already cause quite some pain to users. -- 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
