Yes, I've just fixed it.

Yes, this feature is really lacking, as far as I understand Gitorious,
for now the repo will only be updated when I push commits that I fetched
to my local repo from Not a big problem, but that can
look a little inconsistent - hope they'll add this ability.

You're right, I read the editor.c file too. But I've found the
explanation in the Debian diff file:
 	if (!editor)
-		editor = "vi";
+		editor = "editor";

I guess this method is specific to Debian, else they would have sent it to upstream.
But can't you just use the launch_editor () function? That seems more logical and would solve the problem (else I won't die from it, you knnow...).
