I meant to mention in the cover letter that this patch was open for
debate, however, it does not eliminate all testing of these other
The tests in which git-check-mailmap is substituted for git-shortlog
all worked against a simplistic two-commit repository. Those tests
were checking the low-level mailmap functionality under various
conditions and configurations; they were not especially checking any
particular behavior of git-shortlog.
There still remain a final eight tests which cover git-shortlog,
git-log, and git-blame. These tests do check mailmap-related behavior
of those commands, and they do so using a more involved seven-commit
repository with "complex" mappings, so we have not necessarily lost
any checks of mailmap integration for those commands.
Would this patch become more palatable if I stated the above in the
