I've always thought of git blame as a bit of Linus personality infusion into the git CLI. Aliasing that to "praise" kind of misses that bit of fun.

Using the name 'blame' for that subcommand is at least as old as CVS, and probably older.

Are you sure? I can't find docs for "cvs blame"; just "cvs annotate."

SVN definitely aliased "blame" and "praise" to annotate, though.

Interesting! Thanks!
