This utility was very useful tonight. I wanted to find what revision a certain line was removed from a file in the core WordPress SVN repository. It took a relatively long time to run (15 mins or so), but I’m guessing that’s because it was searching through nearly 6,000 revisions to the repository.
It’s such a handy script because it outputs what revision the line was added, but also when it was removed.
Here’s how I used it:
$ cd wp-includes; $ python blameall.py -r 17201:HEAD media.php
Many props to Ned Batchelder
