Thanks, James! I've pushed this out now.

I had originally postponed your patch only because I wanted to try to
answer your question here about how to fit this at the end of notmuch
help as well. But it's not obvious to me that there's a good way to do
that.

[notmuch] [PATCH] Add ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES section to the man page

2009-12-19 Thread James Westby
Briefly describe the NOTMUCH_CONFIG variable there.
---

  It turns out that it is documented in notmuch help setup, but I
  missed it.

  I'm not sure how to phrase it to fit at the end of notmuch help,
  suggestions welcome. For now I added a traditional ENVIRONMENT
  VARIABLES section to the man page.

  Thanks,

  James
