Description John Mazzitelli 2011-12-08 21:51:48 UTC
go to carousel. say I have snapshot 2 and snapshot 1 that both show drift for file "foo.txt".

select foo.txt in snapshot 2, then select foo.txt in snapshot 1. then "compare" and you see the diff

now deselect everything and now select the files in reverse order (select the one in SS 1, then in SS 2) and do "compare" and notice the diff represents the opposite

that is, for example, the lines that were DELETED in the first compare are now ADDED in the second compare because I changed the order of the files.

We want to compare the oldest as "first" and the newest as "second", always

master commit 5938a790c0aeb32865f4b115e721de22220ca100

Fixed, the new changes will now always get the "+" prefixes and the older
will get the "-" prefixes.
