I'd rather not mention a version number here, as we do not yet know which version (if any) will contain the feature. Besides, we write our documentation to match the current version, so as long as this is queued on top of the new code, I do not see any reason to mention a version at all. I'll tweak it while queueing. -Peff -- 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
