Re: Bug in git log -S

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


There does seem to be a bug on my end. I am searching for “net8.0-windows” and it’s not finding an instance where it’s added. It is not a line of code that is moved around it is purely added so I think there is indeed something wrong with git log -S.

Please let me know if I can be of help in resolving this.

Many thanks,
Sam Clymer
