Please do !

(The <address@hidden> mailing list is more appropriate for that.
I've put it back in Cc. Feel free to remove gnu-arch-users if you
continue the tread)

We are also starting to use our bug/task tracker. That's a
good place to add new items or discuss the existing.

Will "C-x T =" do ?

For this, we would need support from tla itself: I don't know any way
to make a non-recursive "tla inventory". We could hide the
subdirectories, but computing tla-inventory would still be as slow.

Anyway, I put that in the TODO list:

Does M-x tla-delta RET do what you expect?

I've fixed that a few days ago.

I strongly recommend running tla-changes before committing. Then, you
should type

C-x T =
<review patch>
C-c C-c

Otherwise, just C-x T C <summary> C-c C-c.

You can customize `tla-prefix-key' if 'C-x T' is too long to type.

In xtla, in the log buffer, you have C-u C-c C-m (we should find
something shorter) to generate the summary line and the body
automatically for merges (it calls tla log-for-merge).

Thanks for the feedback, and hope you'll enjoy xtla even more with
these advices ;-)
