Adding the “last commit” line back into your Junos RANCID commits

As of RANCID 3.7, an annoying change was made by the authors of RANCID. The “last commit” line was removed from Junos-based device diiffs. filter cycling & useless last commit config line

This wasn’t a switch that we could easily turn on or off, depending on your preference either. We had to dig through the code to re-enable this “useless” feature.

Find your file and comment out the following line:

next if (/^## last commit: /i);

The “last commit” line will be present again upon your next RANCID run.
