Subject: [PATCH] ls-remote: Remove conflicting option "-h"
Date: Wed, 30 Oct 2019 18:33:37 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

From: Mattias Hansson <>

The "-h" option is documented to limit the result to heads, which is a
bit nonintuitive since "-h" is commonly used as the short option for
"--help". However, "-h" currently displays the usage information
which proves that there's a double reference to the option.

This patch will remove "-h" as a short option for "--heads". This
will maintain the current behaviour and correct the misleading
