Interesting, nevertheless what kind of commit do you want to bypass in git blame, if I get it correctly we could ignore the linting commits that way?

Which could come handy with all modules we applied black on.

Hi all,

As explained here

since git 2.23 it's easy to ignore some commits to keep git blame cmd
also efficient than without these commits.


- add a .git-blame-ignore-revs in your repo and put commits to ignore
(black ones mainly)
- apply git config blame.ignoreRevsFile .git-blame-ignore-revs : now
git blame works with the most informative way about authoring if you
have git 2.23 at least

I think it can be interesting to use OCA.

What do you think ?

Bonne journée
