Subject Re: Some thoughts/questions on the new --save feature
Date Thu, 05 Mar 2015 17:01:39 GMT
"just one way of doing things"

This confuses me though. It seemed as if this new config (I mean new
to me) was a way to configure the CLI. Is there another way to
configure the CLI? With the example that was given (default to auto
save) being a preference for the tooling - can we accomplish that
another way?
