The term sometimes gets used confusingly. The "plumbing" is the low-level stuff that supports the "porcelain", that users interact with. But sometimes options to produce low-level scriptable output get called "--porcelain", as in "this is the output to be used when building a porcelain on top". Calling a hook script "porcelain" is kind of stretching it, I think, but it is filling the same role (it is software built on top of git, and using git to store config options). > diff --git a/Documentation/config.txt b/Documentation/config.txt > index 73c8973..23f0466 100644 > --- a/Documentation/config.txt > +++ b/Documentation/config.txt > @@ -131,8 +131,9 @@ Variables > > Note that this list is non-comprehensive and not necessarily complete. > For command-specific variables, you will find a more detailed description > -in the appropriate manual page.
