get a diff of two files in the same check-in.
* CVE-2017-17459, bsc#1071709: Fix the "ssh://" protocol to

run a "clone" with a dodgy URL and thereby gains access to
their system

* Various new hyperlinks to the /bloblist and /bigbloblist pages.
* Correct the /doc page to support read-only repositories.

honor the versioned manifest setting when outside of an open
checkout directory.

for new repositories.
