09:11 gpiero hi all, looking at issue1555 ( set DARCS_REPO_DIR env var for predist )
09:11 gpiero should DARCS_REPO_DIR be documented in darcs help environment ?
09:12 gpiero my impression is that darcs help env documents the vars that modify darcs' behaviour, not the vars set by darcs
09:13 gpiero i.e., DARCS_FILES isn't mentioned
09:17 gpiero mmh... DARCS_DO_COLOR_LINES seems missing too..
09:18 gpiero I assume the latter *has* to be included in darcs help env
09:39 gpiero darcs help env not documenting all vars has already be reported as issue1999

15:55 gpiero Heffalump: sorry, was busy with taxes and misc payments
15:56 gpiero not sure I understood you: you think it's right that introducing DARCS_REPO_DIR means it should be documented in the output of darcs help env ?
16:10 Heffalump I think you're right that it just documents the vars that modify darcs' behaviour
16:12 gpiero ah, ok thx...
16:13 gpiero so if I introduce a new env var _set_ by darcs, where should I have to document it ?
16:13 Heffalump that, I don't know :-)
16:14 Heffalump I would grep for an existing one in the source tree
16:15 gpiero eh, that was the problem :)
16:16 gpiero I grepped for both DARCS_FILES and DARCS_PATCHES and didn't found any doc in the repo
16:19 Heffalump in that case, I see three options. (1) add the new env variable and also don't document it (2) decide on where documentation of this kind of variable should live, and (a) document just your new one or (b) document all of them
16:19 gpiero looking at the online manual... maybe there's a section there
16:22 Heffalump I think that's generated from the source, so unless the mention in the source is obfuscated, I don't think you'll find it
16:27 gpiero it seems they both are mentioned in the online manual section posthooks... anyway can't find the doc in the screened repo... I think there are at least some parts of the manual that are generated from a different source
16:32 gpiero nephews at home.. will look at it later
