Subject: [Cocci] [PATCH] scripts: coccicheck: Refactor display messages on coccinelle start up
Date: Sat, 3 Oct 2020 19:50:12 +0530
Message-ID: <20201003142012.idwudlhqiv3a4mjj@adolin> (raw)

Currently, coccinelle starts by printing
	"When using "patch" mode, carefully review the
patch before submitting it."

Modify coccicheck to print this message only when the user has
explicitly selected "patch"  or "chain" mode.
