As far as I can tell, $ git grep -e 'advice\.' Documentation shows the list in config.txt and nothing else, and they do talk about when they are issued, but the reasoning behind them may not be described to a sufficient degree (that is, unless a reader carefully thinks things through, s/he may not be able to figure out why). But I think what we have there is more or less OK. -- 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
