To me the message's value is the pointer to -uno that not many people know about. And I don't want it to be too verbose as there'll be false positives (cold cache, busy disks, low memory..), 2-3 lines should be max. So indirections are not a concern. You want to speed up, you need to pay some time. Anyway how do you put it to suggest -uno in git-status with all the implications? -- Duy -- 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
