[PATCH] bindings/python-cffi: search for config by default

Subject: [PATCH] bindings/python-cffi: search for config by default

Date: Sat, 8 Jan 2022 12:19:13 -0400

To: Lele Gaifax, notmuch@notmuchmail.org


From: David Bremner

The previous (pre-0.34.2) constructor searched for a config file but
only if the database path was not specified, and only to retrieve
database.path. Neither of the available options (CONFIG.SEARCH or
CONFIG.NONE) matches this semantics exactly, but CONFIG.SEARCH causes
less breakage for people who relied on the old behaviour to set their
database.path [1]. Since it also seems like the friendlier option in
the long run, this commit switches to CONFIG.SEARCH as default.
