I too was annoyed recently by that warning (I set the config to squelch
it, but I'm sure it will pop up again for me in some other context where
I don't have my usual config).

Setting log.mailmap=true in the distributed system seems to defeat the
purpose, though, doesn't it? The point is for users to see the warning
and adjust their expectations, but with your plan they would never see

I think part of what my annoyance is responding to (and your willingness
to just squelch this for everybody) is that switching this particular
default isn't really that big a deal, that it requires annoying people
on every single "git log" invocation. Perhaps we would be better
squelching it entirely and just putting a mention in the release notes.

I know that having been burned by the dashed-form deprecation long ago,
Junio is hesitant to rely on release notes. But it really seems like
this is a pretty minor change, and the solution is worse than the
