Diffusion search throws exception on older git
Closed, WontfixPublic

Description

Per https://github.com/git/git/commit/c41dd2fd7d3a16e6f0b1629d688bee3240db496c it looks like git-grep search with -f was added in 1.7.5, meaning older git versions will produce an exception.

  • Install an older git (1.7.1)
  • Try any search
