I don't have any such ancient git around, but for me git diff absolute-path
works as long as cwd is _somewhere_ in the git-repository. It won't work
when cwd is outside of the repo, I've already told Aleix that when he
recently did that change, but apparently he either overlooked, didn't get
around to fixing it or just ignored me :)

I guess nobody uses ancient git versions 1.7 is current. And I last tested
when the above mentioned changed hasn't been done yet...


You have literary talent that you should take pains to develop.
