    mergetool: document the default for --[no-]prompt · c15bb0ca
    Junio C Hamano authored
    The original motivation of using the prompt was to confirm to run a
    tool on this particular (as opposed to another) path, but the user
    can also take the prompt as to confirm to run this (as opposed to
    some other) tool.  The latter of which of course is irritating for
    those who told which exact tool to use, which is the reason why we
    are flipping the default.
    
    During the review discussion of the patch, many people (including
    the maintainer) missed that a user can find the prompt useful way to
    skip running the tool on particular paths.  Clarify it by adding a
    brief half-sentence to the description.
