Diffusion commit pages should mention plain commit hash somewhere
Closed, ResolvedPublic


It is rather annoying that on pages like not once anywhere on the page or in the url does it contain a plain commit hash.

The internal identifier is a superset of the commit hash but that is not human-readable or easily selectable. Having urls contain a slash like /r/MW/:hash or diffusion/MW/commit/:hash would make this easier. Or by at least mentioning it somewhere on the page.

As a user I want to be able to easily select the hash and use it elsewhere (either for performing actions via Git directly, or when using other git viewers and mirrors).

also maybe have a copy-hash-to-clipboard widget (requires flash?)

Being able to grab the changeset-id/commit-hash while looking through repository history would be very useful. Currently I have to copy the link from the breadcrumb, paste into text editor, copy the changeset while avoiding the callsign. It's doable but having the plaintext available on the page, or a copy-to-clipboard (I don't think this can be done in pure javascript), would be nice to have.
