I can add a documentation > comment. But traverse_callback_t provides a data field, which you use to store a struct merge_options in patch 6 - in theory, you could instead create another struct that contains a pointer to struct merge_options and store that in data instead. That does sound like it will make the code more complicated, though, so maybe current_dir_name here is the way. > > I wonder if this needs to be documented that the least significant bit > > corresponds to stages, and so forth. > > Maybe I should just put a comment to look at tree-walk.h? The struct > traverse_info has a "fn" member with a big comment above it describing > mask & dirmask; filemask is just mask & ~dirmask. That makes sense. I understood a lot more once I saw that it was iterating over a variable number of trees - hence the arrays.
