Gmane
From: David Bremner <david-1j+SLnlVNwXR7s880joybQ <at> public.gmane.org>
Subject: [RFC PATCH] cli/search: interpret no search terms as synonym for '*'
Newsgroups: gmane.mail.notmuch.general
Date: Wednesday 29th June 2016 20:34:06 UTC (about 1 year ago)
This is a bit less typing (and escaping), especially for the
--output=tags case.

I started merrily on other commands, but I'm not so sure. For example
"git annex metadata" has the feature of interpreting missing file name
as all files and I find it super irritating in general because I keep
adding tags to all files. Hence RFC.
