Please do not label the list as "These variables affect this command" to give a false impression that it is the complete list if it isn't. Unless somebody promises to keep an up-to-date complete list there (or even better, come up with a mechanism to help us keep that promise automatically, perhaps by annotating pieces with structured comments in config.txt and automatically appending such a section to manual pages of relevant commands), that is. With a weaker phrase, e.g. "These configuration variables may be of interest", such a list may not hurt readers, but personally I do not think it adds much value to have a list of variables without even a single line description of what each is used for. -- 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
