Not until v3. v2 breaks Mac OS because I used some fancy bash feature. There are some good improvements in __gitcomp_builtin() suggested by Eric and Szeder, which will be in v3 as well. > Or do we want to keep it in > 'pu' to give easier access to volunteer guinea pigs and wait until > the way to handle '--no-foo' options are figured out? Oh the --no-foo thing is definitely not part of this version. Once this series lands though, people can start improving --no-foo per command, even in parallel. "git foo -h" will also benefit from that effort because we will be able to show --no- form only when we mean to allow --no-. -- Duy
