A huge problem, as it breaks consistency and more importantly, the suggestion misses the entire point of what "advice.*" variables are. "advise.*" variables are bools that indicate "Have I learned this somewhat tricky feature and/or characteristics of Git yet or do I still need a reminder?" There is no room for "I still need a reminder if it takes more than N seconds". You either already have got it, or you haven't. >> "to speed up by stopping displaying untracked files" does not look >> like giving a balanced suggestion.

But it makes the advise much less useful to introduce more levels of indirections, no? -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
