I've noticed some repositories use 7 characters, others 11 when displaying a SHA1.
It looks as if magit uses the output of
git log --pretty=oneline --abbrev-commit however I can't see how to configure this to behave differently.
Call with arguments
If I call
(magit-log-current nil (list "--abbrev=12")) then the log shows at least 12 characters. However refreshing the log view looses the setting.
Set the initial arguments
This also works before refreshing resets the value and looses the SHA1 length I had set.
(put 'magit-log-mode 'magit-log-current-arguments (cons "--abbrev=12" (get 'magit-log-mode 'magit-log-default-arguments))) (call-interactively 'magit-log-current)
Is there a way to control how many characters I used to display the SHA1 hash in Magit's log view?
