The previous versions of this patch received only minor comments, which were taken into account: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.git/235675 http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.git/235694 I don't remember all the discussions on the patch which introduced the warning, but I don't think it's relevant to digg them before applying the patch: * The assumption was that users would read the docs, but as I already mentioned: "Judging by the question asked on stackoverflow ( http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13148066/warning-push-default-is-unset-its-implicit-value-is-changing-in-git-2-0 ) and its popularity, telling the users to read the docs did not work very well." * The warning has been there for a while now. Advanced users have already set push.default. We shouldn't be worried about eating a bit of screen real estate for users who didn't yet. -- 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
