there are requests to be able to diff a local version of a package
against a server version. "osc diff" is already diffing local changes
against last checked out version, but this request is asking for
diffing including local changes against a given
This means the client need to upload local modified files to the server
and ask him for a diff.

I don't follow this. Why does that mean the the client needs to upload

Hm, alternative solution is to download all files which are different
and to diff them locally.
Note that this speaks about comparing uncommited changes to a random
server project, which is not accessable locally.

+ Generally this means to be able to diff arbitrary (and possibly)
+ unrelated projects/packages against each other, right? I'm not sure if
+ this really what we should provide.
+ Currently, the user can simulate this by downloading both projects /
+ packages (one may be his locally modified package) and use the diff
+ tool.
