You are right - there is no default hook, but the default handling in case of no hook.

The commit is not in zsh's history, but in another private/local repo/branch.

I've added an own gen-applied-string hook, which quotes the value, but the default behavior is to get the data via:

    elif [[ -d "${gitdir}/rebase-merge" ]]; then
        local p
        for p in ${(f)"$(< "${patchdir}/done")"}; do
            # remove action
            git_patches_applied+=("${${(s: :)p}[2,-1]}")

The quoting needs to get applied to all places where the Git sources are being read in Functions/VCS_Info/Backends/VCS_INFO_get_data_git then probably, and also in the code for other VCS (e.g. hg).

That's correct.
