I would like to generate a statistic from my git repository to create a time-chart:
<commit> <timestamp> <changed-lines> 35abf648cfc 2011-04-04t17:23:58 +20 -4 93acb668f32 2011-04-04t17:59:01 -4 +1
so I can plot a "nice" graph for that with gnuplot or so. Where
<changed-lines> might be anything that is generatable, i.e.
+20 -3 (added 20 lines, removed 3 lines) or just
23 or whatever. Important is, that lines are counted -- changed files would not be useful in my scenario.
It would be good, if I could apply this only on a part of the repo, because some directories contain nasty binary files, which would destroy a statistics.
git log might come in there somehow, but I have no idea where to start...
