Where to find Qt's commits?

There’s a regression in Qt 4.6.2 on Windows (setting border color from stylesheet does not work) that I decided to fix myself.

This bug was originally reported in Qt 4.4, and was fixed in Qt 4.5, around December 2008. Unfortunately I cannot find the corresponding commit in http://code.qt.io/cgit/, probably because the commit is anterior to the switch to Git (or it was made during the transition).

  • How can I change my git timezone offset?
  • Renaming with Git: Using git mv vs deleting a file and adding another
  • Getting “CHECKOUT can only be performed on a version resource” when trying to commit using Eclipse subversive plugin
  • Subversion: stage files to commit explicitly?
  • Git - removing a commit from branch and keep progress
  • Can GITHub commits be pushed to a new branch? Or are they already committed to the original?
  • Where I can find this commit?


    For reference:

    Can you narrow down the Qt versions, to find one where the problem existed, and then a later one, where it was fixed? If you can find a reference to the bug in the Qt Version Changes page, this will you give you the exact pair of versions you want.

    If so, I’ve found that, with this information, I can usually locate the changes for a bug-fix by downloading the source code for 2 different versions of Qt, and then comparing the relevant source files.

    A diff’ing tool like Meld or Araxis Merge can be really useful for this.

    It seems like the older repository (“qt-history”) has never been public, and doesn’t exist anymore:
