Subject: [PATCH 2/3] netrc: ignore unknown lines (do not die)
Date: Thu, 22 Sep 2022 16:59:33 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

From: Matthew John Cheetham <>

Contrary to the documentation on credential helpers, as well as the help
text for git-credential-netrc itself, this helper will `die` when
presented with an unknown property/attribute/token.

Correct the behaviour here by skipping and ignoring any tokens that are
unknown. This means all helpers in the tree are consistent and ignore
any unknown credential properties/attributes.
