Yeah, I agree that it does not have much point, aside from people who have an unreasonable aversion to using the word "origin". There was a series posted last summer to add remote.default: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.git/201065 It ended up stalled and never got merged. I think the main impetus was that "git clone -o foo" should leave "foo" in remote.default (of course, that still leaves unanswered why anyone would really want to use "-o foo" in the first place). I think the symmetry makes some sense, but I also think it can come later if somebody wants it. > Documentation/config.txt | 23 ++++++++++++++++--- > builtin/push.c | 2 +- > remote.c | 60 > +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++------------- > remote.h | 1 + > 4 files changed, 66 insertions(+), 20 deletions(-) No new tests? -Peff -- 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
