Double negation confused my parser. 'push' and 'pull' should be
kept symmetrical in central workflows?
They're not the same thing. It is very much intentional and
the safety net is not to "ensure that the push and pull are
symmetrical" (i.e. among other things, error out if
branch.$branch.merge is unset), but rather "ensure that the push and
pull are never asymmetrical".
not to "ensure that the push and pull are symmetrical"
rather "ensure that the push and pull are never asymmetrical".
They still talk the same thing to me. What am I missing?
Am I being clueless, or is there something else going on?
I think it is a case of the user having explicitly set push=Africa and
pull=Europe which can't be a setting for simple symmetry.
But then again I haven't been following the fine details. (that is there
are some defaults that allow stuff to be half set)
Your "among other things", after reading it three times,
unfortunately did not help clarify anything to me, so perhaps
somebody other than me (or you for that matter) who is more clueful
can help find a different way to explain the difference you are
trying to express to me.
