Re: [egit-dev] Against what version we should compare locally changed file?

One thought, the GIT command line diff tool default option compares to
the index.  You can also compare to the commit if that floats your

git diff
git diff HEAD~1

So it would seem reasonable that EGIT default should compare to index
and provide an option to compare to a history if that is what someone
wants to do.
