Review Board


When an interdiff is displayed in the diffviewer, we now show a history
of how the commits changed from the diffset to the interdiffset. The
implementation of diffing between two histories is very basic at the
moment. We currently only directly compare commit IDs as our metric of
whether or not two commits are equivalent. Once any commit IDs differ,
we assume the rest of the commits in the old history will be removed and
the remaining new commits are all added. This is because commit IDs
depend on prior commit IDs in most DVCS systems. Ideally we would use
use commit ancestor information (which is trivally obtainable from
Mercurial and less so from Git).
