I just sent it in a subscription request, but, in the meantime I'll ask one 
more question here / to you.

(Not the question, but I'll work towards that end by eventually upgrading 
Jessie -- I don't feel very confident installing new software by compiling.  
(The chroot jail I mentioned does use a much more up-to-date Debian, but with 
no X and nothing like KDE.)

(Still not the question) OK, but I was assuming (and am still assuming -- but 
I expect to find out for sure that I could invoke [git] diff from within 
kdevelop and see the results there.

(The one more question) I'm fairly sure it is not the cmake system based on a 
quick look at man cmake (which is installed on my Jessie system) -- the basis 
of my opinion is that the make files  are named make and not cmake.
