Subject: [PATCH 1/2] test: add known broken test for ignoring non-toplevel .notmuch
Date: Sun, 26 Dec 2021 08:24:09 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

In [1] Rob observed that notmuch new ignored directories called
.notmuch everywhere in the tree, where they should only (and now, with
split configs, at most) be ignored at the top level. Add a test to
demonstrate the problem.
