Mostly it is that I clean up the patches and commit messages before sending them out. Michael sends out his own patches because they are already perfect by the time I see them. :) I can certainly get S-O-B from GitHubbers, but my impression of the DCO is that it does not matter; as the first link in the signoff chain, I am certifying that the patch meets the licensing requirements. Of course, I know that because of my relationship to the author and our employer, which is something that isn't encoded in the headers. A S-O-B from the author would perhaps make it more obvious what happened. > I like the general idea and this escape hatch would be a good thing > to have. > > A few comments: > > - Seeing the word combination "restrict"+"remote" before reading > the explanation made me think "hmph, only allow remote archive > from certain hosts but not from others?"

After reading your first point, I came up with "archive.allowRemoteUnreachable", which also satisfies the second. I do not have a strong opinion. > > +archive.restrictRemote:: > > + If true, archives can only be requested by refnames.

Perhaps "remote > archives can be requested only for published refnames" or something. I was hoping to be vague. If we really want to get into specifics, we should probably document the current rules (refnames, and sub-trees of refnames). It might be a good thing to document that anyway, though. And by doing so, it would become obvious why one would want to set this option. I'll see what I can come up with. -Peff -- 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
