RE: Re: Any way to apply a filename filter to compare revisions ( or show differences as unified diff)?

Yup. I'm just trying to improve visibility into what changes have been
committed. On larger projects oversight is critical, and being able to
filter the noise that doesn't apply is pretty important. I'm just
looking for a way to both ignore or include only files of a certain
type. Search for log of revisions gets me there partially for the
"include only" functionality (although the tortoise proc search leaves a
lot to be desired). Really some reg expression filter capability for the
compare revisions dialog would be best (as it quickly shows me the files
and what changes were made to the files clearly).

I don't think Seth is asking for this in the commit dialog, just as a
filter for the review process, maybe in the log dialog.
