Gnus/5.11 (Gnus v5.11) Emacs/23.0.50 (gnu/linux)
Since this change:
2007-09-17 Richard Stallman <address@hidden>
* newcomment.el (comment-add): New arg EXTRA.
(comment-region-default): Pass EXTRA if not indenting lines.
the docstring of the variable comment-add:
How many more comment chars should be inserted by `comment-region'.
This determines the default value of the numeric argument of `comment-region'.
This should generally stay 0, except for a few modes like Lisp where
it can be convenient to set it to 1 so that regions are commented with
doesn't reflect the default behavior in Lisp mode, which is now to
comment regions with three semi-colons, given the default
comment-style 'plain. If the default comment-style were changed to
'indent, then the doctring would (once again) be accurate. If the
default comment-style is kept 'plain, the change in behavior should be
mentioned in NEWS.
In case anyone's tallying votes on this, I am in favor of making the
default comment-style 'indent.
