The actual reason was that I initially thought the change would be much more controversial. I wanted to live with the option on for some time to see how much I liked it, and allow others to do the same without forcing the change. If everybody agree that status it better without the comment, and that the switch does not need a config option, then I'm fine with dropping the config option. We can also keep the config option, but document it as a transitional option only ("the behavior changed in Git XXX, to keep the old behavior, set this to YYY"). Then it could be status.oldStyle instead. -- Matthieu Moy http://www-verimag.imag.fr/~moy/ -- 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
