Hello all,

In https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=27644, I propose a patch to bind the vc-region-history command to C-x v H.

* Why vc-region-history?
- I find that command very useful; especially to dig though who specifically touched a set of lines in emacs code and when. I used it very recently[1] to associate a strange behavior I started seeing in ggtags.el package with an upstream change in emacs.

* Why bind to C-x v H
- That binding is an easy mnemonic; the "H" in C-x v H for vc-region-(H)istory.
- That binding is available

So the questions to the list:
- How frequently do you guys use vc-region-history?
- If you bind it, what do you bind it to?
- Is there a reason why this patch should not be applied?

Thanks all.

Either. It's not a very technical decision, and I very rarely use this
command myself.

Sounds good to me.
