My initial intention for flags toggle is for git newbies, who are not clear about how to use -x/-d/-X/-ff options. I feel it may have values for these people. But since most people feel it may bring trouble, I can withdraw patch 9/12, 10/12, and 11/12. Another improvement I want to hear your opinions. When the user execute "git clean --interactive --dry-run", the current implement is ignore the "--interactive" option, and do dry-run only. How about we combine them together? First show the user the interactive interface, and when user choose to clean, do cleaning in dry-run mode. -- Jiang Xin http://www.worldhello.net/ -- 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
