Clarification. I meant "A single central point to check is a useful concept, but centrally checking 'does this exist? I do not care what it is' is not necessarily useful and I suspect it is not useful more often than it is". When you care if something exists, you often want to know what it is and other aspects of that thing at the same time. -- 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
