Having said all that, I do not mean to advocate to retain "-q". Most likely nobody uses it, and "-q" is grossly misnamed ("why is it so special to be "quiet" only for removals?"). As long as we mention its removal in the release notes (and possibly tell those miniscule minority that wants to ignore deleted files to use --diff-filter instead), we should be OK. Independently, we might want to enhance --diff-filter parser to make it easier to say "I want everything but D", perhaps use lowercase letter to subtract from what have been specified so far (or if there is no uppercase letter, start from "everything"), so that we can say --diff-filter=d or something. -- 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
