Subject: [PATCH] Config option to set the transport protocol version for network fetches
Date: Thu, 17 Sep 2020 15:20:47 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200917132047.GA14771@pflmari> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200916200203.GA37225@coredump.intra.peff.net>

Affecting the transfers initiated by fetch and push,
the option allows to control network operations similar
to --ipv4 and --ipv6 options.

I have merged the patches.

As this is still being discussed, and because I still imagine the
transport protocol family as a list of allowed protocols, this part
is not in the patch below.

I agree.
