Yeah, that, possibly with "These are deprecated; do not use them.", would be a better way forward. As we deprecated "rsync" long time ago, perhaps we should remove it at Git 2.0 or somewhere around that. By the way, that old patch by Ram in question was *not* incorrect per-se back then when dumb http was still more prevalent option between the two http transports. Fetching over dumb http and dumb ftp were both equally bad ;-) It just has become less relevant as more people start equating http with the smart http, where there is no equivalent "smart ftp". -- 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
