Yet a wide amount of users do use 'ci' to mean 'commit', so basically they are
just wrong. So you are saying they are just ignorant.
Personally I don't care if it's 'ci', or 'co', or 'cm', or 'ct'. I just
want/need a shortcut, then I can train my fingers to type that.
If you have a better alias than 'ci', then by all means, throw away your
Now, if you are commenting on the aliases, that would mean you are not against
the idea of aliaes per se, but more about values of those aliases. So if we
