Re: [PATCH v2] status: add an empty line when there is no hint




Hi John

When typing "git status", there is an empty line between

I'm a bit confused by this as you change a status test below by inserting these blank lines into the expected output, implying they are not there now. I think maybe the blank line is only shown when status prints advice.

However, when typing "git commit" with
no files added, there are no empty lines between them.

I have to say looking at the changes to the output I prefer the original, the lists are nicely indented so there is no need for a blank line to separate the header from the list and having the header immediately before the list means the blank line at the end of the block makes the extent of the block clear. It also saves screen space which is useful for small laptop screens. I can see why one might want a blank line to separate the advice and list of changes (though even there the indention of the list and advice is different) but for a one line header I think it is better to start the list on the next line.

Best Wishes

Phillip

This patch adds empty lines in the above case and some
similar cases.
