Hello IPython devs,
I was trying the latest github checkout of the IPython source and got the
Automatically saving notebooks as scripts has been removed.
Use `ipython nbconvert --to python [notebook]` instead.
I am wondering why this had to be removed. Security?
I find the automatic script saving very helpful. My work-group usually
commits the `.ipynb` and the `.py` side-by-side to obtain a better diff. I
know that we can workaround this with nbconvert, but doing that manually is
error prone, and having a script to do that will add another layer of
complexity that we did not have with the automatic conversion.
Well, if the automatic conversion had to go I understand, but if there is
no reason can you guys consider leaving it there?
