Re: bk-commits: diff -p?

This has been fixed in the following releases:


Correct usage is "bk diffs -up" which will get you unified + procedural diffs.
-p is currently a hack, it implies -u, but don't depend on that behaviour,
a future release does this correctly and if you teach your fingers that
diffs -p is the same as diffs -up you'll get burned later.
