Yes, and even if it's old, it is a really well done tutorial to understand the internals of git. I read it after gittutorial and gittutorial-2. It's just that I was surprised to learn about this command, "much more powerful" than git-log. To me it looked a lot like git log --raw, and I found git log -p more useful, so I was wondering what I was missing until I read the source to see that nowadays the two commands were mostly the same. > The above section primarily explains the use of diff-tree and it was > appropriate back when git-whatchanged was a script.

Well in this case you can say that the intent was successful since it made me read the source code ;) -- 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
