Subject: [RFC PATCH v3 1/3] docs: mention trace2 target-dir mode in git-config
Date: Fri, 13 Sep 2019 17:25:58 -0700
Message-ID: <eacffe250d2029f190d04144c9242ae25b8fb094.1568419818.git.steadmon@google.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1568419818.git.steadmon@google.com>

Move the description of trace2's target-directory behavior into the
shared trace2-target-values file so that it is included in both the
git-config and api-trace2 docs. Leave the SID discussion only in
api-trace2 since it's a technical detail.
