It is OK if it were your private edition, but you end up hurting your users if you need to redo the feature differently. That's the price of your using open source and taking a short-cut. Adding a "--smudge" synonym is spreading the same hurt to outside your fork. Let's see if we can avoid doing that. Perhaps mark that "--smudge" as experimental-and-subject-to-change and re-announce? -- 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
