Hm, do you mean that this change is too difficult to squash into the
first patch?

I mean things like "what exit code does it run if there is no
maintenance to do?"

That doesn't seem idiomatic within the Git codebase.

Can they be locals instead?

Hm, I thought the contract for GIT_TRACE2_EVENT is that it is JSON,
which is a well defined format.  To that end, I would sincerely hope
that external tools are not assuming anything beyond that the format
is JSON.

If that wasn't the intent, I'd rather that we not use a JSON-like
format at all.  That would make the expectations for evolving this
interface clearer.

My proposal was just to factor this out into a function in
test-lib-functions.sh so it's easy to evolve over time in one place.

Thanks and hope that helps,
Jonathan
