    Since the very beginning of Git, we gave the LESS environment a
    default value "FRSX" when we spawn "less" as the pager.  "S" (chop
    long lines instead of wrapping) has been removed from this default
    set of options, because it is more or less a personal taste thing,
    as opposed to others that have good justifications (i.e. "R" is very
    much justified because many kinds of output we produce are colored
    and "FX" is justified because output we produce is often shorter
    than a page).
    
    Existing users who prefer not to see line-wrapped output may want to
    set
    
      $ git config core.pager "less -S"
    
    to restore the traditional behaviour.  It is expected that people
    find output from the most subcommands easier to read with the new
    default, except for "blame" which tends to produce really long
    lines.  To override the new default only for "git blame", you can do
    this:
    
      $ git config pager.blame "less -S"
    
    * mm/pager-less-sans-S:
      pager: remove 'S' from $LESS by default
