Just a small one, and that's that I'd prefer the option to have help display in my terminal (that option might exist and I don't know how to turn it on). That would be very convenient for me. Opening a nice HTML page is probably nice for a lot of users. What frustrates me about it is that I don't know which browser window on which monitor (of 3) it's going to open in, so it's a context-switch to a different window somewhere that I don't have much control over. The thing I find easier about using the upstream documentation is just that I can pick the browser window I want it to come up in, and it's usually faster enough for me to just google "git-whatever" or re-purpose an open doc tab. I don't prefer the _content_ of the upstream documentation, it's just less frustrating for me to use, if that makes sense. -Dakota -- 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
