It was only added recently (v2.0.0). :) As you noticed, we do not allow aliases of actual git commands. I think it would be nice to notice and complain rather than silently ignoring them, though. > I use a lot of version-style tags so I wanted this to be default.

Yeah, the complexity is in preparation for becoming more flexible. I think we'd consider short options for commonly-used sorts, but were waiting for them to prove their value in the field. > The only main issue would be the location of the sort-configure code, > but that is actually easy to move so I don't think it's a big deal. The > configuration interface should remain similar. Agreed. It's not a problem moving code around. But once a user-facing feature is released, we try to keep compatibility with it. So as long as the config option's format stays the same (or strictly increases in features), that is fine. > > Your link to git-tag should be to git-tag, I think.

Then I'll fall back to my original complaint. :) We should not duplicate, but just refer back to git-tag(1). > Alright that makes sense. I will send a v2 soon. Thanks for the > comments. You're welcome. Thanks for working on git (and welcome to the list, I think). -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
