They are all three filters. They transform the output by limiting it to commits which meet specific conditions. Transformation is used in the network-graphs sense of the word. It fits the beginning of the document where it says this: The diffcore mechanism is fed a list of such comparison results (each of which is called "filepair", although at this point each of them talks about a single file), and transforms such a list into another list. There are currently 5 such transformations: - diffcore-break - diffcore-rename - diffcore-merge-broken - diffcore-pickaxe - diffcore-order -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
