To make sure the experience on Windows (and for anyone who faces long rescan times) does not degrade, I think we should keep this off by default. That said, I would love to be convinced to keep this on by default because IMO this is a really good feature to have. I tried coming up with ways to avoid slowdowns while keeping the auto rescan on but I didn't come up with anything convincing. > Stefan Haller (2): > git-gui: Delay rescan until idle time > git-gui: Auto-rescan on activate > > git-gui.sh | 26 ++++++++++++++++++++++---- > 1 file changed, 22 insertions(+), 4 deletions(-) >  https://firstname.lastname@example.org/ -- Regards, Pratyush Yadav
