gitlptools ships three binaries:
These are intended as
git plugins, exposed as
git-lp-… such that
git lp-… invokes the associated command.
In order to ease my users’ setup, I would therefore like to request aliases to match the manual ones
Command Alias Notes
gitlptools.git-lp-approve git-lp-approve manual
gitlptools.git-lp-open git-lp-open manual
gitlptools.git-lp-propose git-lp-propose manual
+1 as reviewer - the command names (
git-lp-*) seem namespaced enough on their own, developers who do use them would be more familiar with the
git-lp-* than with an e.g.
gitlptools.approve invocation (also namespaced but weird) and the names are non-conflicting and explicit.
(I guess you could name the snap “git-lp” and then get commands like
git-lp.approve but that’s still a muscle memory retraining for developers and per my +1 above I think it’s fair to grant these aliases as requested)
Not related to the alias request
I don’t know the insides of these tools at all, but if they need to access git’s config (and I imagine a user of these tools would at least have an
insteadof: lp thing in there), you could use
personal-files as I did for icdiff.
Thanks, but unneeded, since it is
classic. If you want to see what’s inside, https://launchpad.net/gitlptools
+1 for the aliases (please note there are 5 more days left on the voting period)
2 votes for, 0 against the auto-aliases. Granting. This is now live.
