Hm, I'm not sure trac-darcs has an equivalent.  Maybe this?


Especially if you set "Lines of Context" to max.

I think this is the equivalent of:


(Choosing two arbitrary revisions and getting the diff between them.)

But again, I'm not sure.

You mean, "viewing an individual revision" ?

Oh wait, then *this* is is like the "from 3600 to 3572" link that I  
posted earlier?  What is the "viewing the individual diff" then?

It's funny how little I understand the Gitit terminology or what  
Gitit pages correspond to what trac-darcs pages.  Is "revision" a  
darcs patch?  Maybe it would help if they were both looking at the  
same source code.  Want to import tahoe into Gitit for me?  :-)

Okay, now on the topic of a Grapefruit-based GUI for darcs, it would  
be cool to have this sort of information shown in the GUI, because it  
would be lower-latency than the Gitit or trac-darcs web sites, and  
could potentially be extended to do things that aren't easily done  
with websites.

However, personally, I would be more interested in seeing from a  
darcs GUI information that I *can't* currently see in Gitit or trac- 
darcs, perhaps decorated with hyperlinks which take you to a Gitit or  
trac-darcs view.
