What is this line?

This should be the first line. But there is an extra space before the

Which is 100% exactly the way it should work.

Uh.. what??

Why would anyone want a confirmation prompt for the path they've already
configured? This is not what the bug report is asking for at all.

We ONLY want it to do something different if there is NO default path
and NO default-push path configured. In which case there is nothing to
prompt for, because there's nothing to do except abort. Instead, you
provide the user a HINT (see the 'hint' in your subject?) on how to
configure their default path. For instance:

$ hg push
abort: no default path configured
(see the 'path' section in 'hg help config') <- this is a hint

This line doesn't pass check-code.

Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
