Yes, but that does not mean we can break people who keep an external database indexed with the patch-id by changing the default under them, and "they can give --unstable option to work it around" is a workaround, not a fix. Without this change, they did not have to do anything. I would imagine that most of these people will be using the plain vanilla "git show" output without any ordering or hunk splitting when coming up with such a key. A possible way forward to allow the configuration that corresponds to "-O<orderfile>" while not breaking the existing users could be to make the "patch-id --stable" kick in automatically (of course, do this only when the user did not give the "--unstable" command line option to override) when we see the orderfile configuration in the repository, or when we see that the incoming patch looks like reordered (e.g. has multiple "diff --git" header lines that refer to the same path, or the set of files mentioned by the "diff --git" lines are not in ascending order), perhaps? -- 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
