At first I thought that your idea was to have an option to "git bisect
run" so that a "git bisect reset" is run automatically after the
bisection is finished.
But I search the IRC log and found the discussion here:


and I found that you said:

"there should be an option for git bisect run which executed the
"whatever clean command git has like git clean -fdx"./"

I understand that, but I wonder what we should do if some people need
a "git reset --hard" and if some other people need other options than
We would need both a --reset and a --clean, or perhaps even a
--reset[=(hard|mixed|soft|merge|keep) and a --clean[=<clean-opts>].
And then what if people want to clean only a subdirectory and not everything?
And this does not take into account the fact that many people
will/should clean using "make clean" or "make distclean" or "rake
clean" or something like that, so that a --clean option will not help
