If I just look at it or play with it in an experimental branch, it will most likely be just a short once, and you'll have less chance to get comments. > At least prior to releasing the next jumbo version, we should either be > sure that a future change is unlikely, or we should release the next > jumbo version without --list=format-details, and wait until we collect > some more requirements for GUI development etc. Agreed.
