One line, perhaps, but I do not think any byte-limit is reasonable. It is unreasonable to limit the form to X.Y.Z; after we hit Git 2.0, it is likely that we would go to two-decimals. If the "parsing" is done for white/blacklist purposes, is there a need to straight-jacket the verison string format like this series? -- 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
