I still have a slight feeling that we shouldn't list the branches for
"git branch -l" during the deprecation period. If feel this because

	i) It would avoid confusions for the users during the
	   deprecation period

	ii) The warning message seems to add to the confusion:

	    $ git branch -l
	    warning: the '-l' alias for '--create-reflog' is deprecated;
	    warning: it will be removed in a future version of Git
	    * master
	    ...


	    If there are ample branches, the warning message might be
	    hidden out of screen but we shouldn't rely on that, I
	    suppose.

Sivaraam?

You possibly might have noticed that my signature recently changed from
'Kaartic' to 'Sivaraam' both of which are parts of my name. I find the
new signature to be better for several reasons one of which is that the
former signature has a lot of ambiguities in the place I live as it is a
common name (NOTE: it's not a common spelling, just a common name). So,
I switched signatures before it's too late.

That said, I won't mind you calling me 'Kaartic' if you like it [of
course ;-)]. You can always call me using either of the names.


KIND NOTE TO THE NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKER:

As I'm not a native English speaker myself, there might be mistaeks in
my usage of English. I apologise for any mistakes that I make.

It would be "helpful" if you take the time to point out the mistakes.

It would be "super helpful" if you could provide suggestions about how
to correct those mistakes.

Thanks in advance!
