I'm using git v184.108.40.206, and trying to use directly git-send-email on plain
bug #1 (default values when prompting do not work)
According to git-send-email documentation, it should suggest default values
when prompting the user.
However it does not, since ->readline does not accept a default value.
I've verified this in man Term\:\:ReadLine and by looking
at /usr/share/perl/5.8.7/Term/ReadLine.pm, and with the perl debugger - the
default is correctly calculated but not printed. At least with my perl
(5.8.7, from up-to-date Ubuntu 6.06 LTS).
git-send-email should instead say "press Enter for default [$default]" and
bug #2 (subject line is cut away but ignored)
Additionally, I was sending a patch starting with (on 1st line):
Kconfig: FAULT_INJECTION can be selected only if LOCKDEP is enabled.
'Kconfig:' is interpreted as a mbox parameter, and ignored, and that line is
removed from the email.
This should be documented and pitfall, and probably the user should be allowed
to override that.
Inform me of my mistakes, so I can add them to my list!
