Maybe I should take a step back and ask why it isn't easier to expire things regardless of age, which is sometimes a reasonable thing to do even outside of test suites. In particular, it seem to me that the most obvious interpretation of git reflog expire --expire=now --all would be that it expires *everything*. But in fact it seems to only expire things that are at least one second old, which doesn't seem at all useful in the real world. "--expire=all" is accepted without complaint but doesn't do what one would hope. Something like "--expire=$(($(date +%s)+3600))" works, but it is not very convenient (is it portable?). I guess I can use test-chmtime for my particular test, though I will have to pass it the explicit names of the logfile(s), like find .git/logs -type f -print0 | xargs -0 test-chmtime =-60 I guess that's what I'll do if no better solution comes up.
