My goals are irrelevant. This patch is good.

It implements a missing feature, if you don't like how it is implemented it:

a) Implement the code in the note framework that does it properly so
other people can just call that.

b) Implement the tests for other commands that check that the behavior
you talk about does happen indeed.

c) Implement it yourself

This has nothing to do with the way I presented the patch. I presented
the patch as I thought it was; implementing the note copying as it was
intended. Now you came along and say I wasted your time because I
didn't say I implemented it wrongly, and you assume bad faith and what

This wouldn't have happened because you didn't do a) or b). I realized
that by replacing 'am' with 'cherry-pick' in 'git rebase'  the notes
were not copied, according to the testing framework, so I implemented
that, and the tests pass. Now you come along and say it should
implemented some note.rewrite.command stuff, but the tests didn't
check for that, so how was I supposed to know?

And then you have the audacity to claim that *I*, the one who just
wrote a bunch of code to implement a missing feature, is wasting
*your* time, you, the one who is simply replying to an email and
shooting from the hip.

I won't, I'll keep working on my actual objective.

Plus, this patch does have a commit message, and the commit message
says *EXACTLY* what the patch is doing: add support to copy notes.

If *you* are interested in certain behavior, why don't you lift a
finger and do something to make sure that such behavior is easy to
implement and the test framework actually checks for that?
