Having spent several hours staring at the augeas code, I wonder how many people use it. It felt incomplete. PR up.
This is a somewhat gentle rant. It has not been a fun several hours
It mis-reported the
It didn’t support

thanks for looking into the table and finding fixes+improvments
do you mind breaking those changes up into distinct PRs?
1. removing the no-standard-includes searching
2. fixing path reporting
3. implementing LIKE support for node and path

(1) is a one line change, it’s easy to separate out, but feels silly. OTOH, if it makes discussion easier…
(2) and (3) are somewhat distinct code wise, but make more sense together.
I guess I can split them if you find it simpler to review
You know what? I’ll split them. I’d rather just split them than talk about it. 🙂
It’s just CI time.
(I’m happy to talk about intent, and the general chaos of that table. But 1 pr vs 3 isn’t really important)

It's mostly a software dev like-to-have, changes should follow a 'single thesis' rule, which makes them easier to revert and makes issues easier to rootcause and bisect.

I understand the arguments in favor, and generally agree with the sentiment. But I have some pragmatism as well. Obviously, we should PR things in small usable pieces, akin to milestones. It’s easy to point at things that are very coarse. And I think I can point at things that are too small.
And then there’s a grey area.
