Whatever arbitrary rules you are talking about, they are not codified in tests.
If you care so much about "*the lines of existing note copying*", why
don't you implement tests that check for those? This not only would
prevent that some shmuck who is not well versed in the tradition of
"the lines of existing note copying" from breaking that tradition,
which is precisely what tests are for.
If this was done, we wouldn't be "time-wasting" here.
This patch makes 'git cherry-pick' pass all the tests that 'git
rebase' passes. Period.
Even if it was against "the lines of existing note copying", it's much
better than the current situation, which is to do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
If you were a productive person, you would take this patch and
implement the code that makes it align to "the lines of existing note
copying" that you care so much about, which should be easy, if the
note framework was properly implement, but you won't.
Why isn't this implemented?
void copy_notes_for_rewrite(const char *rewrite_cmd, struct rewritten *list);
If there was such a thing, other clients wouldn't need to implement
their own methods of copying notes.
But you didn't implement that, did you?
You are punishing me because the notes framework is lacking, and
because the testing framework is missing what you think is the proper
Strike that, you are punishing the users.
