I added the "osx" tag to a question. Nothing else.

It shows that the "colors" tag was removed, and then re-added. What gives? Wouldn't it make sense to show it like this?

  • Looks like the diff algo is a bit greedy. Not sure there is much we can do about it.

  • @Oded Well, if it's not worth the effort completely rewriting the diff algorithm, so be it :)

    Ah, unintended side effect of this.

This was an unintended consequence of this fix, where the "prepend a space" cheat (that's the "Jeff" case near the bottom of that post) was too eager. Fixed in the next build.
