Why would it break? When you do not specify --lockref, there is no change whatsoever. To achieve any safety at all for these push-only refs, you have to be very explicit by saying --lockref=pu:$myoldpu --lockref=master:$myoldmaster etc, and what is wrong if in this case --lockref semantics are applied, but only pu is allowed to be no-ff? > I am not opposed if your proposal were to introduce a new syntax > element that calls for this new feature, e.g. > > [remote "ko"] > url = kernel.org:/pub/scm/git/git.git > push = *pu > fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/ko/* > > but changing what "+" means to something new will simply not fly. I still do not see why we need two different kinds of ways to spell the same strong kind of override (--force and +refspec) under the presence of --lockref, and why we need a third one (--allow-no-ff) to give a weaker kind of override (that makes sense only when --lockref was given in the first place). -- 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
