while looking into issues found by jenkins, we sometimes wanted to find all packages that have differences in a certain file/path or where the path matches a specific pattern or where the diff matches a certain regex. Maybe a text based format could use more easily greppable symbol sequences that are unlikely to appear anywhere in the diff to help this use case? I didn't implement a machine readable output yet because I was lacking ideas of how one would represent a diff in a machine readable manner. The current two-column output is suboptimal for that. cheers, josch
