Maybe I am getting slower with age, but it took me 5 minutes of
staring the above to convince me that it is doing the right thing.
The if/elseif cascade is dealing with three separate things and the
logic is a bit dense:
* Is the buffer completely empty? We need to add two LFs to give a
room for the title and body;
- Is the final line incomplete? We need to add one LF to make it a
complete line whatever we do.
- Is the final line an empty line? We need to add one more LF to
make sure we have a blank line before we add S-o-b.
I wondered if we can rewrite it to make the logic clearer (that is
where I spent most of the 5 minutes), but I did not think of a
better way; probably the above is the best we could do.
By the way, I think we would want to introduce a symbolic constants
for the possible return values from has_conforming_footer(). The
check that appears after this hunk
if (has_footer != 3 && (!no_dup_sob || has_footer != 2))
strbuf_splice(msgbuf, msgbuf->len - ignore_footer, 0,
is hard to grok without them.
