But you still have to copy/paste the hash in command line. I wonder if we should approach it differently: the user writes "Fixes: <hash>" in the commit message, then git detects these lines and expands them using a user-configured format. For the kernel circle, the format would be "%h ('%s')" (I'll need to think how to let the user say "minimum 12 chars"). Other projects need to refer to old commits sometimes in commit messages too and this could be extended further to expand inline abbrev sha-1s, but to not break the text alignment badly, maybe footnotes will be created to store subjects and stuff, rather than do inline expansion. For example, commit 1232343 breaks something..... becomes comit 1232343  breaks something....  123234332131 (do something wrong - at this date) -- Duy -- 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
