Right, I think that point is clear now, that we're just talking about changing the warning messages. I'm not saying I'm going to work on it, but I think I understand the feature-request. d _______________________________________________ notmuch mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://notmuchmail.org/mailman/listinfo/notmuch
