Subject: git makes it impossible to ignore or override global gitconfig, needs `GITCONFIGFILE`
Date: Wed, 18 Mar 2020 22:48:17 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

git makes it impossible to ignore global gitconfig. This is
essentially what's being asked here:

## proposal:
add an environment variable (like for tig and other programs), eg:
`GITCONFIGFILE=~/.gitconfig_temp git diff`
seems like an easy change that would make it easy for users to ignore
or override their gitconfig

## note:
I've asked here:!topic/git-users/1ehWsItL8vE but got
0 response after 6 months
