Re: disable interactive prompting




Thanks for pointing out the option. 

I tried "git help push" and searched for "prompt", "interactive",
"credentials"...

I don't think I would have figured to try
 "git help git" from "git help" even after reading it carefully.

I'd suggest adding a hint in "git help".

I also don't seem have the GIT_TERMINAL_PROMPT in "git version 1.8.3.1" but I can fix this.

Thanks,

Ernesto
