Sébastien M-B Comment l alias 18cb119

Shame you can't upvote pull requests, it would help prioritise things in repos such as this where there are constantly a crazy amount of PRs and issues.

Over a month for such a tiny change which was committed by accident just shows that such 'busy' projects can become difficult to manage. I bet a whole load of PRs are just folk wanting their custom theme included - do we really need/want every other person's custom theme?


@rosstimson I totaly agree with you point of view.

The number of PR and delay between submission and acceptance may end if unwanted result such as my alias comment!

To me, forking a project is a way to customize it to my needs (adding your theme, etc...).

  • I originally forked it to add my theme and add ssh completion for host in ssh config.
  • Then I made PR #690 (late 2011) for the two (my theme could have been kept in my fork...)
  • After I commented the l alias (mid 2012) 18cb119, it was not part of the original PR #690

When the PR was accepted, There was conflicts (because of others PR merged after I submitted my PR #690 ) which I solved in my fork.
To solve them in upstream, my fork was merged and so was my unfortunate alias comment!

When I see the number of comments and work for this simple alias comment, I would like to know if there is a right way to fork a project to do both, contribute to upstream and customize without issue like my alias comment.
Maybe I should have kept my customizations in a custom branch...

On the question do we need/want others themes, I would say yes, it is interesting to discover tweaks such as prompt color change per ssh connection, git information ... I originally tried oh-my-zsh for its themes ;)


@robbyrussell any chance that this tiny fix will be merged in the foreseeable future?
