Yes. Credit goes to Jonathan Tan for this trick. > But > why actually commit the macro, as opposed to compiling once locally to > check for correctness, then maybe add something like `assert(r == > the_repository)` for the actual commit? The eternal struggle of contributing patches that are easy to review. ;) With the assert we'll have a run time check, which is not desirable compared to a compile time check. And from a reviewers point of view running a "rebase -x make" on the series that Junio queued is easier than to reason about the "assert(r = the_repository)" IMHO. > But I don't care either way, since the macro disappears again soon. Glad you're ok with this approach. Thanks for looking at the refs specific code, Stefan
