Subject: [PATCH v1 1/2] t/README: remove mention of adding copyright notices
Date: Sun, 26 Nov 2017 20:20:59 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

We generally no longer include copyright notices in new test scripts.
However t/README still mentions it as something to include at the top of
every new script.

Remove that mention as it's outdated.

Signed-off-by: Thomas Gummerer <>

I read through some parts of t/README, while working on the tests for
the worktree dwim patches, and noticed some things that are outdated/a
useful function that's not documented anywhere.  Here's a couple of
patches to fix that.
