Notmuch new works very hard to not visit files that haven't changed. Changing this would have a big negative performance impact, afaik. I care less about the performance of reindex; also it already rescans all the relevant messages, so I guess the performance impact would not be that bad. Sometimes it's worth giving up performance for more intuitive behaviour, but most people seem to manage with the current behaviour. d _______________________________________________ notmuch mailing list email@example.com https://notmuchmail.org/mailman/listinfo/notmuch
