[Emacs-diffs] master c22677b: Default message-forward-as-mime to nil

From: Lars Ingebrigtsen
Subject: [Emacs-diffs] master c22677b: Default message-forward-as-mime to nil
Date: Thu, 12 Apr 2018 16:09:26 -0400 (EDT)

branch: master
commit c22677bf00e420e7049bd4fca8e0c05772e973c2
Author: Lars Ingebrigtsen <address@hidden>
Commit: Lars Ingebrigtsen <address@hidden>

    Default message-forward-as-mime to nil
    * doc/misc/gnus.texi (Summary Mail Commands): Ditto.
    * doc/misc/message.texi (Forwarding): Note the new default.
    * lisp/gnus/message.el (message-forward-as-mime): Default to nil
    since it's been reported that many recipients can't read MIME
    digest forwards (bug#24878).
