Hm, I was about to try adding a line in that vein, like
* `tracking` - deprecated synonym for `upstream`.
Imagine my surprise when I saw that that is what you just said
would be no good:
>>> `git pull`.
>>> -* `tracking` - deprecated synonym for `upstream`.
>>> * `current` - push the current branch to a branch of the same name.
I really do think that including `tracking` in the same list would be
valuable. When I look over a friend's .gitconfig file to help track
down a problem she is running into, it is helpful if I can find the
meaning of each item in a straightforward way.
Is the problem that "deprecated" is not precise enough? For example,
would it make sense to say "deprecated synonym for `upstream`. Will
be dropped in git 2.1" or something like that?
My two cents,
To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in
the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org
