with gitview  (attached) I have added an option --with-diff. That will
add the diff details. Now I would like somebody with good git
knowledge to review the different  commands that i am using to get
information out of git  For example with --with-diff option i am
getting the complete diff by

for parent_id in  parent_sha1 parent_sha2 parent_sha3 .......
commit_diff = commit_diff + git diff tree -p parent_id commit_sha1

is this the correct way ?
