So what? They still mean the same thing as long as --lockref is not used. > If --lockref adds safety to +refspec, > the same safety should apply to "--force refspec". No. --force means "I know what I am doing, no safety needed, thank you". By applying the safety to --force as well, you lose it as the obvious tool that overrides the safety. -- Hannes -- 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
