I had to think about it for a while, but I think you're right; I inferred a behavior that the patch didn't actually add or have anything to do with, namely having the result of applying pushInsteadOf to the non-push URL override the pushUrl. OK, I take it back. I *can* imagine configurations that this change would break, since it does change intentional and documented behavior, but I don't have any such configuration. The only such configuration I can imagine involves directly counting on the non-rewriting of pushUrl, by using pushInsteadOf to rewrite urls and then sometimes using pushUrl to override that and point back at the un-rewritten URL. And while supported, that does seem *odd*. Objection withdrawn; if nobody can come up with a sensible configuration that relies on the documented behavior, I don't particularly care if it changes. > After this patch, neither pushInsteadOf nor pushUrl overrides the > other one.
