Webcast: Reviewing git & mercurial patches with email
@sir Some day I hope to understand what you're doing in these videos...
@erikstl ask questions if you've got em
@sir Oh, I'm at an understanding level in my programming ability that my confusion is more along the lines of "how does Git work?" instead of "what does that super swanky function do?"
I'm essentially at slightly more advanced than:
print ("Hello World!")
@sir You're the best.
@sir Small nit in the first sentence: "more understandable and accessible the world." -> "more understandable and accessible >>to<< the world."
@jlelse 130 or so
@jlelse years of practice
@sir What does the -%<- that you are manually adding when quoting code mean?
@nloomans it's a pair of scissors, see -%<-
@sir I still don't get it, does it mean "cut here"? What are you trying to say when adding it?
@nloomans it means that I cut out some text here to trim down the email
@nloomans not everyone does it, it's actually fairly uncommon
@sir Ahhhh... That makes much more sense. Thanks!
