Well, to me, "git log" is the ui to "git rev-list", so everything which tests the revision walker should be tested using "git rev-list". But I don't care as long as it fits in - and can be found later. That being said, I now see lots of "log --grep" and "log --author" tests in the grep-test. So I guess there it fits best (despite the misnomer). >> >> Documentation/rev-list-options.txt | 6 ++++++ >> 1 file changed, 6 insertions(+) >> >> diff --git a/Documentation/rev-list-options.txt >> b/Documentation/rev-list-options.txt >> index 5436eba..9c13df3 100644 >> --- a/Documentation/rev-list-options.txt >> +++ b/Documentation/rev-list-options.txt >> @@ -6,6 +6,12 @@ special notations explained in the description, additional >> commit >> limiting may be applied.

Badly. It was introduced in 0ab7befa with a clear meaning (AND everything), then the general logic (without --all-match) was modified in 80235ba7 (to take headermatch AND (all greps ORed)), and 5aaeb733 finally made multiple authors resp. committers get ORed among each other. All of this in an attempt to make the standard usage most useful, of course. As a consequence, --all-match does not influence multiple --author options at all (contrary to the doc), e.g. I don't see any of this reflected in the doc, though. I noticed only by reading t/t7810-grep.sh. Before that, I had only gone by my own testing which didn't reveal the multiple author multiple special casing effect. I guess I'll have to wrap my head around the current implementation a few more times before trying to describe the status quo in the documentation... -- 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
