Description scandy 2006-06-07 12:01:40 UTC
select a file and opt to see CVS->Search History. then click Diff button

The "list" displaying all file revisions has 4 buttons (column headers): File
Revision, Time, User, Message. But user cannot sort the list entries clicking on
the column headers. That's a usability issue. Once there are many branches and
versions, it is very difficult to find a particular version. I guess that this
sorting is not supported because the 'File Revision' column shows a tree? Why
tree is needed? It is OK only if there are few versions, but when there are too
many, it is not useful. It would be much better if tree is gone and user can
sort list entries by clicking any of the column headings.

Would it be enough for you if the columns were sortable but the view would still
be categorized by files?
