I have recently been writing more about it in the Wiki. All you want to know should be written
and in the other linked pages.

Currently (in trunk) it works for all/selected modified/added/removed/replaced files, with
their properties; not untracked/missing/moved/copied, and not directories.

let you know how it goes.
