04:59 ctrl Hi. Is there a way to change ugly conflict markers in darcs? I don't like the "v v v v" delimeters and would prefer something like "-- darcs -- conflict --"
05:00 Heffalump not without changing the source, I'm afraid
05:00 ctrl That's sad.
05:01 Heffalump do other systems make them configurable?
05:01 ctrl I don't know. I started with darcs and tried nothing else yet. Probably no.
05:02 ctrl But that would be a nice feature in my opinion.
05:03 Heffalump it would be quite easy to implement, but we also like to keep things simple in darcs
05:05 ctrl Simplicity is certainly good, but it is not tolerant to hard-code a choice of style. People may prefer their own delimeters.
05:06 ctrl What if I want to use darcs where such a delimeter is a valid operator?
05:06 ctrl They would be hard to distinguish.
05:08 ctrl There were proposals to add patchnames to delimeters, it was kind of 5 years ago. The solution is not to implement since it will make the code ugly.
05:09 ctrl But I see no harm to allow customizing.
05:10 ctrl Especially if you say it is easy to implement.
05:11 ctrl I think I'll study the source a little. Thanks for your advice
05:11 Heffalump adding patchnames isn't done primarily because it's hard to implement at the moment
05:11 Heffalump making the markers uglier is a secondary concern (IMO)
05:12 Heffalump this is the new feature procedure: http://darcs.net/Development/NewFeature
05:13 ctrl Thanks.
05:13 Heffalump I guess the configuration would be a flag that could be set on the command line, and also in flags specified in global or per-repo configuration files (there's a standard place those live, though I forget the precise names off the top of my head)
