I'd gotten used to everything (except for, oddly enough, status) paging
and use "git --no-pager" when I explicitly don't want it to page.|

Specifically: * less does not "clear" (revert) the screen properly after commands like "git log" and "git diff" * vim isn't using the git extensions/file types for commands like "git commit" Both of these work properly in Gentoo (and vim -- but not less -- works properly in Ubuntu), but it's not obvious to me what's different between the distros to account for the differing behavior...Funny, I would look at clearing the screen after a git log to be awful, since I frequently need the commit name for the following command. I found what I think is the appropriate info in 'man git-config' under the 'core.pager' setting.
