Subject: [PATCH v2 3/4] add-patch: add NEEDSWORK about comparing commits
Date: Wed,  7 Oct 2020 00:56:17 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <44ee78450e1cfe26b47cc4343c5d445df2b96d7b.1602057332.git.liu.denton@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1602057332.git.liu.denton@gmail.com>

The two versions of add-patch has special-casing for the literal
revision "HEAD". However, we want to handle other ways of saying "HEAD"
in the same way.[0] Add a NEEDSWORK to the add-patch code that does this
so that it can be addressed later.
