The author of switch and restore isn't involved in the git project anymore. He decided to work on other things, which was and is a big loss for us. I think others (myself included) didn't know all the things that might have been in Duy's head that he wanted to verify were working well before marking this as good, but these two commands have generally been very well received and it has been a few years. Personally, I'm not aware of anything that we'd need or want to change with these commands. That said, we're only a few weeks from -rc0, and I'd rather remove the experimental label early in a release cycle, so maybe this would be a good thing to do after the June git-2.32 release. That'd give plenty of time for others to chime in with anything they might be aware of that they want or need fixed. Thanks for flagging this. Elijah
