after playing a while with git-pasky it is a crap to interpret the date of
commit logs. Though it was a good idea to put the date in a parseable format
(seconds since), but the format of the commit itself is not good parseable.

For easy converting the commit log header in readable format it should be in
another format, perhaps like mail header: 
- Every field should start al column zero wih filedname end up with a colon.
- Every fieldname starts with an upcase letter.
- The dates of author and committer should be fields of it own.
- The commit message itself is seperated by a blank line.

Example current log entry:

commit fe077e9d16819b72c275ea40b254f22b4d236f8b
tree 98b57b0310e0e2309fe4a6c24a6abea31a4d6c6d
parent f0adb6cf1bf603537afff5cf26b90e81321db225
author Petr Baudis <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> 1113684324 +0200
committer Petr Baudis <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> 1113684324 +0200

s/me/commit/ in git log output.

Should be:

Commit: fe077e9d16819b72c275ea40b254f22b4d236f8b
Tree: 98b57b0310e0e2309fe4a6c24a6abea31a4d6c6d
Parent: f0adb6cf1bf603537afff5cf26b90e81321db225
Author: Petr Baudis <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> 
Author-Date: 1113684324 +0200
Committer: Petr Baudis <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> 
Committer-Dater: 1113684324 +0200

s/me/commit/ in git log output.

This date entries are now easy parseable and convertable.
