Subject: [PATCH v5 0/2] diff: index-line: respect --abbrev in object's name
Date: Fri, 21 Aug 2020 18:51:45 +0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <cover.1598010556.git.congdanhqx@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1596887883.git.congdanhqx@gmail.com>

For diff-family, Git supports 2 different options for 2 different
purposes, `--full-index' for showing diff-patch object's name in full,
and `--abbrev' to customize the length of object names in diff-raw and
diff-tree header lines, without any options to customise the length of
object names in diff-patch format. When working with diff-patch format,
we only have two options, either full index, or default abbrev length.

Although, that consistent is documented, it doesn't stop users from
trying to use `--abbrev' with the hope of customising diff-patch's
objects' name's abbreviation.

Let's resolve that inconsistency.
