I *think* that AsciiDoc will render this in a different way from what we
want, but I am not an AsciiDoc expert. In my hands, I always had to add a
single + in an otherwise empty line to start a new indented paragraph *and
then continue with non-indented lines*.

My initial reaction was: should we return comment_line_char instead of -1
here? Only after reading how this is called did I realize that the idea is
to use full command names if there is no abbreviation. Not sure whether
this is worth a code comment. What do you think?

I would prefer this hunk to be skipped, it does not really do anything if
I understand correctly.

I guess the compiler will optimize this code so that the conditional is
evaluated only once. Not that this is performance critical ;-)

This hunk changes indentation quite a bit, therefore it is a bit harder to
read than necessary (and the resulting code, too, as it is more smooshed
against the 80-column boundary on the right).

How about this instead:

-		if (item->command >= TODO_EXEC && item->command != TODO_DROP)
+		if (abbreviate_commands && command_to_char(item->command)) {
+			const char *id = shorten_ids ?
+				short_commit_name(item->commit) :
+				oid_to_hex(&item->commit->object.oid);
+			fprintf(out, "%c %s %.*s\n",
+				command_to_char(item->command),
+				id, item->arg_len, item->arg);
+		} else if (item->command >= TODO_EXEC &&
+			 item->command != TODO_DROP)

i.e. test first for the short and sweet case that we want (and can)
abbreviate the command, otherwise keep the code as before?

Ciao,
