Let's be clear. Junio owns the project so what he says goes, no
question. I provided some review feedback which I thought would help
the patches get in more easily. We really shouldn't be adding multiple
features in one patch. This is easily separated into multiple patches.
Then there is the issue of testcases. We should NOT have git-subtree go
back to the pre-merge _ad_hoc_ test environment. We should use what the
usptream project uses. That will make mainlining this much easier in
If Junio is ok with overriding my decisions here, that's fine. But I
really don't understand why you are so hesitant to rework the patches
when it should be realtively easy. Certainly easier than convincing me
they are in good shape currently. :)
