We need 2 main branches : One Stockfish to play games and one Stockfish to have accurate analysis.

Git is such an unuseable pile of shit... How the hell do i get a diff ?

Ok - add ".patch" to the URL.
https://github.com/joergoster/Stockfish ... 5b7d.patch

but the patch no longer applies to master. All this fuss for *maybe* 1 elo. :?:

So you mean it is better to apply the patch to the master to avoid cases of confusion and take the loss of maybe one Elo? By the way, https://github.com/Kingdefender/Stockfi ... repetition
is kept up to date at least as long as automatic merging is straightforward, so you should be able to get diff with master from that. The differences in the files at the time that Jörg committed them are maybe more easily seen in the 'commit history' if that is the proper name for it; https://github.com/joergoster/Stockfish ... ae4cce5b7d
Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first
place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you
are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.

Yes ... This issue continues to annoy so many people, and will continue to raise it's head as new users come across it.
