Well, if it is to be done automatically, I should not need to tell it manually (by typing the option on command line). Granted it's a weak argument. >> Maybe I should separate these changes >> _and_ remove --rerere-autoupdate from _git_merge() too? At least that >> it will be consistent that way. > > Hmmmm.

It may belong to the unpopular category and adding it may make people <TAB> more for other options. But I think it's way too early to decide that. And even if that's true, I think we should let the user choose to not complete certain options they don't like. It's good that this is spotted. I think I'll just keep all --rerere-autoupdate completable. Well, v4's coming (in a few days)... -- Duy
