Yes, it was intentional. I mentioned this in the cover letter. I can of course add something about it to the commit message as well if you like.

That's what a commit message is for, yes, to describe why something is being changed. The cover letter isn't going to end up in the git history. If it hasn't yet been merged, I think it'd be nice to get it improved, so someone looking at the logs later understands the intention. Thanks.

-    scms = [base_get_metadata_git_revision, \
-            base_get_metadata_svn_revision]
+    scms = [base_get_metadata_git_revision]

Was this change intended? Because it doesn't match up with the commit message, as far as I can see.
