Subject: [PATCH v2 2/3] documentation: mention --no-use-mailmap and log.mailmap false setting
Date: Fri, 12 Jul 2019 18:02:03 -0500
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

The log.mailmap setting may be explicitly set to false, which disables
the mailmap feature implicity. In practice, doing so is equivalent to
always using the previously undocumented --no-use-mailmap option on the
command line.

Accordingly, we document both the existence of --no-use-mailmap as
well as briefly discuss the equivalence of it to log.mailmap=False.
