Happy new year everyone,

we need a way to make diffs. Something like "wimapply archive.wim 4 different-from=1" where 1 and 4 are images and different-from would tell to take both new and modified files (in image 4 compared to image 1). If we do an update on the test computer and it appears to work after 2 weeks of testing and we want to deploy it, but it's just a .ini file that was tweaked or whatever, reapplying the GBs of the whole archive on over 100 computers is way too much strain for the network and it also erases the local modifications made. So with something like a cherry pick. You would keep all the local "commits" and only apply the diff between image x and image y.
