I do not think keeping the support for "-q" in is any huge burden. We do not have to remove it, forever, for that matter. The option is so obscure that (1) I would suspect that only a few very old scripts would use it, (2) even the users who use such a script every day would not know what the script is doing with the option, and (3) we would not know if such scripts exist until a long time passes after we include patches up to this step in a released version. That is why the patch 7/6 rolls the removal into a version bump at which we promised to have a bunch of backward incompatible changes to people. -- 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
