digitalmars.D - Regressions and git bisect - an app for that?

Speaking of git bisect, a lot of great work has been put into automating things 
with the test suite, and extra things like generating test profile coverage.

It could be an ongoing nice timesaver if a tool could be added to git that, for 
regressions, automatically figured out which PR caused the breakage.

I think that digger, by Vladimir, does that: https://github.com/CyberShadow/Digger

Anyone want to apply that to the regression list? https://issues.dlang.org/buglist.cgi?bug_severity=regression&bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&list_id=230123&query_format=advanced

Vladimir gave a presentation about it at DConf: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1viQK8w6370 I highly recommend watching the whole video but in case you're in a hurry, the Digger part starts here: https://youtu.be/1viQK8w6370?t=1850
