Automated patch minimization for bug origin finding | David R. MacIver
Ok, so you know git bisect? You take a commit history and try to find the commit that introduced a problem.

Imagine you had the problem that git bisect solves but uh you hadn’t been very good about commit discipline and you had a whole bunch of large messy commits, several consecutive ones not in a working state, and it wasn’t really clear what happened where.

Not that I know anyone in that situation of course. This is a purely hypothetical scenario.

Well it turns out there’s a solution to this too, and it’s possibly better than git bisect.
