git changelist

Today I needed to get a list of all the files that had changed in a git repository over the last two weeks. I played around with some great git commands, awk and sort to make the following git alias (toss it in the [Alias] block of your .gitconfig):

changelist = "!git whatchanged --since='\$1' --oneline | awk '/\^:/ {print \$6}' | sort -u; \#"

To use:

git changelist "2 weeks ago"

You can use a lot of different unix date formats in there.
