When I specify a relative directory to the log command (e.g. with `l = r d o c s RET l’) the setting seems to have no effect.
What output do you expect?
Because for me
git log --relative=docs
makes no difference at all.
That arg is very confusing. Usually what people want is
git log -- docs
(which I just implemented on magit; expect a pull request soon)
--relative makes sense only when diffs are shown on the ouput of `git log'. AFAIK, magit has no option for showing diffs on magit-log, so the --relative arg is irrelevant.
Added a patch implementing support for restricting the log output to a given list of files or directories here:
Closing so discussion can happen in just one place: #594. If that doesn't make sense please reopen.
