Hi David,

Yes this is very helpful. I glimpsed that existed but could not find it again until now.

Thanks a lot for sharing!

Hi all,

As explained here

since git 2.23 it's easy to ignore some commits to keep git blame cmd
also efficient than without these commits.


- add a .git-blame-ignore-revs in your repo and put commits to ignore
(black ones mainly)
- apply git config blame.ignoreRevsFile .git-blame-ignore-revs : now
git blame works with the most informative way about authoring if you
have git 2.23 at least

I think it can be interesting to use OCA.

What do you think ?

Bonne journée
