Well, it says that changes are in notmuch 0.5. So "old" and "previous" refer to pre-0.5 (i.e. 0.4) and "new" refers to 0.5. > What kind of configuration > is broken? Any configuration when `notmuch-fcc-dirs' is a list.

No, it is a list with a string as the first element. May I refer you to "git show 0.4:emacs/notmuch-maildir-fcc.el" and current emacs/notmuch-maildir-fcc.el? It has good documentation with examples for notmuch-fcc-dirs. Also NEWS for 0.5 describe this change. > And this has been > inadvertently broken since 0.5? > Old configuration format was changed in 0.5 in an incompatible way. There is a check for the unsupported old-style configuration. But the check is broken and results in an error when running with a valid new-style configuration. > > ;; Old style - no longer works. > > (error "Invalid `notmuch-fcc-dirs' setting (old style)")) > > Yikes.

IMO it is enough for this small bugfix and those who interested can always refer to documentation for details.
