I think all these techniques are accomplishing the same thing in different ways. That is, they create a bit of slack in the center of the hammock, making the centerline longer than the edges.
To add another technique toward that same objective, I cut only the foot end on a parabolic arc with a 3" belly such that the centerline is 3" longer than the edges. Then, I finish with a Warbonnet "whipping." (Which I find easiest to sew.) The ridge goes away!
