different separators for autocomments (715 bytes, patch)

Description Danny B. 2007-12-08 14:41:16 UTC
Created attachment 4419 [details]
different separators for autocomments

Current default separator "-" coincides with comments about removing as well as it confuses people if it means "removed" or not:

Comment saying "I've removed some text in section" is usually written this way:
  /* section */ - some text
and produces the summary like:
  -> section - - some text

Comment like
  /* section */ foo
  -> section - foo
Now the confusion comes: does it mean "I've done/added/corrected/whatever 'foo'" or "I've removed 'foo'"?

I've changed it to the following behavior:
1)  -> section: - some text
2)  -> section: foo
which is more intuitive and descriptive

Applied with r30611.
