I assume the docs you are referring to are (from "git help log"): --no-decorate, --decorate[=short|full|no] Print out the ref names of any commits that are shown. If short is specified, the ref name prefixes refs/heads/, refs/tags/ and refs/remotes/ will not be printed. If full is specified, the full ref name (including prefix) will be printed. The default option is short. The intent of that is to say that if we are in "short" mode, then for any ref names we show, we will show them without their "refs/heads", "refs/tags", or "refs/remotes" prefixes. Not that we will omit those refs entirely (if you omitted those three, you would generally have nothing left). So no, it is not a bug, the code is working as intended. Patches welcome for rewriting the documentation to make this more clear (I thought it was pretty clear, but I believe you are the second person in the last few weeks to misread it in exactly the same way, so it is not just you). I don't think there is currently a way to specify exactly what you want. Off the top of my head, it would be something like a "--decorate-refs=<pattern>" option, which lets you specify which refs are interesting (right now, we always decorate _all_ refs). But that does not yet exist, and somebody would have to volunteer to implement it. -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
