    I'm asking because as I understand for version 5.0 API changes would
    be allowed? If so, I'd like to bring up an older topic once again [1]:

    Config methods should throw checked Exceptions instead of
    IllegalArgumentExceptions in case of invalid values: a user can
    easily introduce invalid values into .git/config. This does not
    represent an internal or API usage error. The current API, which is
    using IllegalArgumentException, makes it very hard to detect and
    handle such cases. Once the time is right, I can provide a (huge)
    patch here, too, which I'm maintaining since a couple of years.


I added your proposal to the 5.0 plan here <>

I propose we start working on 5.0 after we released 4.10 in December.

Thanks! I'll watch out for the 4.10 release and will cleanup my patch then and upload.
