There's a checkbox in the Git repository settings whose label is far from self-explanatory, and it is undocumented as far as I can tell.

Agree. What does the option "Report last commit for files and directories" mean?


#3 Updated by Hiroaki Nakamura over 10 years ago

I could not understand what it means too, so I read the source and fount out.

If you set the option "Report last commit for files and directories", four columns are added on repository file lists:

  • revision
  • age
  • author
  • comments

Why is this label still around? :) It is still not intuitive at all…
What about
"Display properties of latest changing commit for files and directories"
or just
"Display latest commit for files and directories"?
