    4 When you browse the repository, it is always possible to view the ''Revision Log'' that corresponds to the repository path. This displays a list of the most recent changesets in which the current path or any other path below it has been modified.

    88It is possible to set the revision at which the revision log should start, using the ''View log starting at'' field. An empty value or a value of ''head'' is interpreted as the newest changeset.
    99
    1010It is also possible to specify the revision at which the log should stop, using the ''Back to'' field. By default it is empty,
    11 which means the revision log will show the latest 100 revisions.
     11which means the revision log will show the [TracIni#revisionlog-default_log_limit-option default log limit], which defaults to the latest 100 revisions.

    13 Also, there are three modes of operation of the revision log.
     13There are three modes of operation of the revision log.

    15 By default, the revision log ''stops on copy'', which means that whenever an ''Add'', ''Copy'' or ''Rename'' operation is detected, no older revision will be shown. That's very convenient when working with branches, as one only sees the history corresponding to what has been done on the branch.

    17 It is also possible to indicate that one wants to see what happened before a ''Copy'' or ''Rename'' change, by selecting the
    18 ''Follow copies'' mode. This will cross all copies or renames changes.

     18''Follow copies'' mode. This will continue to list all revisions across copies and renames.
    1919Each time the name of the path changes, there will be an additional indentation level. That way, the changes on the different paths are easily grouped together visually.

    2121It is even possible to go past an ''Add'' change, in order to see if there has been a ''Delete'' change on that path, before
    22 that ''Add''. This mode corresponds to the mode called ''Show only adds, moves and deletes''. This operation can be quite resource intensive and therefore take some time to be shown on screen.

    2929For each revision log entry, the following columns are displayed:
    3030 1. The first column contains a pair of radio buttons and should be used
    31     for selecting the ''old'' and the ''new'' revisions that will be
    32     used for [wiki:TracRevisionLog#viewingtheactualchanges viewing the actual changes].
     31    for selecting the ''old'' and the ''new'' revisions that will be used for [#InspectingChangesBetweenRevisions viewing the actual changes].
    3332 1. A color code (similar to the one used for the
    34     [wiki:TracChangeset#ChangesetHeader changesets]) indicating kind of change.
     33    [TracChangeset#ChangesetHeader changesets]) indicates the kind of change.
    3534    Clicking on this column refreshes the revision log so that it restarts
    3635    with this change.
     
    3837    This is a link to the TracBrowser, using the displayed revision as the base line.
    3938 Next to it, you can see a little "wheel" icon [[Image(htdocs:../common/changeset.png)]],  which is clickable and leads to the TracChangeset view for that revision.
    40  1. The '''Date''' at which the change was made.
    41     The date is displayed as the time elapsed from the date of the revision. The time
    42     elapsed is displayed as the number of hours, days, weeks, months, or years.
     39 1. The '''Age'''/'''Date''' at which the change was made.
     40    Depending on your [/prefs/localization session preference], the date is displayed in either //Relative// or //Absolute// format.
     41  * //Relative// format shows the '''Age''': the time elapsed as the number of hours, days, weeks, months, or years.
     42  * //Absolute// format shows the '''Date''' of the revision as a datetime.
    4343 1. The '''Author''' of the change.
    4444 1. The '''Log Message''', which contains either the truncated or full commit
    4545    log message, depending on the value of the ''Show full log messages''
    4646    checkbox in the form above.
