Added: 3. If your command is implemented in an interpreted language with a p-code intermediate form, make sure .gitignore in the main directory includes a pattern entry that ignores such files. Python .pyc and .pyo files will already be covered. > INSTALL: note language requirements if odd (see python section) Added: 4. If your command has dependency on a particular version, document it in the INSTALL file. > command-list.txt: categorization of commands for git(1) etc. Are the values in the right-hand column documented somewhere? What uses them, and for what purposes. > RelNotes: Junio generally does this. Added: 6. When your patch is merged, remind the maintainer to add something about it in the RelNotes file. > Also please read Documentation/technical/api-builtin.txt to > see how to add a built-in command. It also has comments that > are identical for both built-in and stand-alone command. Could > be that your text would better go near or with that one, as perhaps > api-command.txt. I think this is a good suggestion and will implement it. If someone can explain the values used in command-list.txt, or (better) point me to documentation of them, that will enable me to finish the revised patch. -- <a href="http://www.catb.org/~esr/">Eric S.
