Subject Re: Can we remove merges/ folder from the default application template?
Date Wed, 14 May 2014 16:32:38 GMT
SGTM as long as all the user needs to do to recreate it is a “mkdir”, and that is documented
in all the right places. I like the aim of reducing the temptation of devs to push buttons
that aren’t needed in most cases. The visible surface area is more simple.
