So, is there anyone actually against this change?

Some debate exists over the correct default to switch to ("current" or "upstream"), but nobody seems to argue for today's behavior ("matching").

Not on this hacker news page.

Nor on LWN apparently. This has got to be the least controversial setting change in a good long time. It seems everyone just worked around this crappy default by establishing usage habits like always defining branch and remote.

I know I've set my git push to current a couple of times but most of the time I just end up deleting the branch if something that wasn't intended for public consumption gets pushed up.

There seems to be a small minority on the git mailing list who are split between questioning the workflow of anyone who needs this, and the obligatory and inane "it's documented, it's not a problem!" attitude
