Hi all,

I've just written a new rdiff extension. This extension does not add
any commands, but changes the behaviour of the diff command. When the
extension is loaded, diff checks whether the first argument is a
repository URL (or path to another local repository). If so, it
performs a diff against that repository by fetching the incoming
bundle. If revision arguments are given, the first revision is looked
up in the local repository, and the second in the remote. URL#rev
syntax is also supported.

There's a short page here:


or just download it here:
