comment Why does Git's stash commit need two parents?
Your working changes (tracked, but not added) should for sure be kept, that is the intention of stashing those changes right? Later you decide to pop the stash or discard it, or leave it.

comment Is seeing loads of merge messages in a git branch standard, or are we working incorrectly?
There is nothing language specific about your question. It would do the same thing if it were simply a text file with many contributors, or a complex project with many languages. The message is in fact generated by git.

comment Why aren't there cherry-pick requests?
The tool, meaning the website? Or the tool meaning git? Git can do it, and yes, I realized you did mention that "you" could do that yourself. I mentioned the maintainers, rather than I assume your role as a contributor. Different perspective was assumed, I think, when I read your assertion.

Reflecting that I can't answer the question, in reality.

comment How do I set up pairing email addresses?
You can process mail using IMAP, right? In other words, having an IMAP connection to help you with rules. It doesn't stop the mail from coming in, but it can trash those that you don't want, or move them to a 'review' label for gmail. Someone probably already mentioned the procmail and other tools though.

comment Inherit one instance variable from the global scope
That is just simply a symbol. Just like :name or :woof are symbols. @from_outside.instance_variables will give you that symbol, just like methods method will give you an array of methods and they are all listed as symbols.

comment Why does assigning a variable to false return false?
You also get warnings when you do this in Ruby.

comment ruby-idiomatic hashes vs arrays
So doesn't that invalidate what you state about "hashes aren't ordered data". I didn't state in any way that it was a good choice for anything, I left judgement out totally. I only mentioned the objective fact that they are indeed ordered, and predictably so.
