Re: Parsing trailers




Hi Christian: thanks for your reply.

But this actually also changes which lines are considered trailers,
right? If the commit message ends with

    Signed-off-by: one
    Signed-off-by| two

and the user’s `trailer.separators` is set to `:`, then the correct
result should be only `Signed-off-by: one`. But when adding `|` as a
separator, we also see `Signed-off-by: two` in the result.

    $ printf '.\n\nSigned-off-by: one\nSigned-off-by| two\n' |
    > git interpret-trailers --parse
    Signed-off-by: one

    $ printf '.\n\nSigned-off-by: one\nSigned-off-by| two\n' |
    > git -c trailer.separators='|:' interpret-trailers --parse
    Signed-off-by| one
    Signed-off-by| two

Best,
