Thanks for the information. I wasn't aware that it wasn't designed with that in
mind, though it would indicate to me that --since seems to work with git-blame
according to [1], but expects a date, as I have usually been using it. It also
seems to produce correct results on FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT with git 2.11.1, except
when given a filter such as --since=<year>, in which case perhaps nothing should
be displayed?
 
Could you please clarify which bits wouldn't work with --since in git-blame?
