My guess is that trying to accomplish such a goal would result in an unbelievable mess of the code that I wouldn't even want to think about where to start to code this. Moreover, `git grep refmap` returns me the following: t/t5516-fetch-push.sh:test_expect_success 'pushing a specific ref applies remote.$name.push as refmap' ' t/t5516-fetch-push.sh:test_expect_success 'with no remote.$name.push, it is not used as refmap' ' I'd say with --refspec is the simplest and most sensible way this can be implemented. -- Felipe Contreras -- 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
