SubjectRe: Linux 2.6.12-rc3
Dear diary, on Sat, Apr 23, 2005 at 01:18:39AM CEST, I got a letter
where Pavel Machek <> told me that...

I told you the semantics is peculiar.

We could add a flag to rev-tree to always follow only the first parent;
that would be useful even for a flag for git log to "flatten" the
history, if you aren't interested in what was going on in the trees you
just merged.

Another flag to avoid showing patches for merges might be possible, but
actually a little scary since you don't have consistency assured that
way; your post-merge patches might generate rejects when applied on top
of the pre-merge patches, or your pre-merge patches might not apply
cleanly on the tree you merged with.

So if you want to ignore merges, it sounds that you are probably
actually doing something wrong. We might still let you do it assuming
that you know what are you doing and you will test the patches for
applying to whatever you want to apply them on, but with a big
exclamation mark.

Patches welcome, if anyone wants to do it before I get to it. ;-)
