Description matusdekanek 2008-12-10 14:21:01 UTC
It would be nice if serch in history would support substring search for message. Message can be longer and even if not, 
I may be looking for one keyword, not for whole message, what is in my opinion much more useful. If a developer is 
searching something in history, he usually wants to find revisions connected to some feature or so, and searching by 
name of such feature would be great. 

Also CVS search history results could be sorted by revision number (if it is so, I have a bit problem to see it), or 
bit more transparently, one might have problem to find there desired file/revision.

And, well this might be a bug (not an enhancement), but anyway, in search results is not possible to select text 
normally. Either whole text of message with revision number, file and osme other info or nothing (behaviour on linux). 
Don`t know whether this is bug or property (did not find specified how this should work).
