To add support for diffing against any version, you need to implement the
ClearCaseTool's get_file function to take into account the specified
revision. If you can return the right revision from that, you should be
That might have to do with why you're seeing the "old" version in both. You
*should* have a patched version in the right-hand side, but there's
certainly going to be issues with get_file() not supporting revisions. So
I'd look into that first.
Also, make sure the code is parsing useful revisions out of the diffs (and
the diffs should contain useful revisions to parse). I don't know enough
about the clearcase support to know whether this works today.
