Description ehucka 2005-09-22 15:25:24 UTC
I tried to invoke cvs|diff action on a modified file. The file had changed only
its timestamp but the diff window was shown. Is this the right behaviour?
Comment 1 Maros Sandor 2005-09-23 22:10:06 UTC
It depends. If you diff an entire project, you can see all 'blue' files in diff.
If you diff a single file, you maybe expect only a message box saying that the
file did not change. I will mark this as an enhancement: remove all files from
diff that are not really modified, show only a message box if diff action would
open an empty view.
