Re: The state of repository searching

I fully agree. Searching in time and space would be very powerful and save
time. Any scrept based approaces I can think of would take a long time .
Though the ability to search through the history of a small subset of files
might be feasible. I just had a need to use this today, I needing to find a
revision in a list of 100 revisions of a single file. doing this manually
is very time consuming, I actually never found what I was looking for. I
gue it would be cool if you could search x revisonions back, then you could
just seach through small chunks of revisions at a time.
