I think what you really want to see is not giving "-c" and have it
"git show-ref" does not honor configuration variables at
all, but at least core configuration variables read by
git_default_config (most importantly core.checkstat) should
be read and honored, because ...
would be more appropriate. What are the variables that matter to
show-ref, and what are the reasons why they should be honored? I
thought show-ref was just a way to enumerate refs, and does not read
the index nor checks if there are modifications in the working tree,
so I do not see any reason offhand for it to honor core.checkstat
(and I think that is the reason why we don't have the call there in
the current code).
Exactly the same comment applies to 2/2.
Note that I am _not_ opposing these changes. You brought them up
because you saw some reason why these should honor some core
variables. I just want that reason to be explained in the log for
the future developers.
