Subject Re: Default log color ( was discussion at aries)
Date Mon, 21 Nov 2016 09:19:08 GMT
Hi Christian,

I'm a bit surprised as the --no-color is always possible and you can 
also create an alias.

So, if the issue is color or not color, I would recommend just a 
--no-color alias.
If the colors themselves, then, no problem to use term colors and so 
create a Jira.

Regards
JB
