D:/Test-Fossil-Bisect>fossil bisect help Usage: fossil bisect bad|good|log|next|options|reset|status|ui|undo
D:/Test-Fossil-Bisect>fossil bisect options auto-next on Automatically run "bisect next" after each "bisect good" or "bisect bad" direct-only on Follow only primary parent-child links, not merges display chart Command to run after "next". "chart", "log", "status", or "none"
I would like to see here also as new option
auto-next on Automatically run "bisect next" after each "bisect good" or "bisect bad" or "bisect skip" auto-update on Automatically run "update" after each "bisect next"
or in other words: if this new option is set to off then bisection should omit the "fossil update" step

Indeed, the bisect summary has a few problems. While you're at it, try running "fossil bisect" with no arguments at all (no "help"), and you'll see that you get again a different list.
I also added mention of "bisect skip" to "bisect options". Here is the check-in.
I didn't add a new auto-update option. There should probably be more discussion first.
By the way, in addition to good, bad, and skip, "fossil bisect undo" will also trigger an update.

Thank you very much. Yes, undo can do but would only be on my demand and therefore not unwanted.
