In the commit dialog you can open the diff of the files which are to be committed. That's good. But when there are n files to diff, there will be n tabs. The usability is low because you have to click at each tab to review the changes.

ACTUAL: n tabs for n files
EXPECTED: one tab, but with list of files -- see screenshot

i'll see how much work it would cost

Integrated into 'main-silver', will be available in build *201406190001* on (upload may still be in progress)

Log: #237636 - Commit dialog: Open diff of files in one tab instead of n-tabs
Git displays the diff in one single tab with all the files selectable
in a table at the top of the tab - similar to the normal diff view.
