Nope in our case it is actually the opposite : reconstructing
"readable" amendmts (i.e. diff) from the diff between the before and
after texts
And git is just a bonus publication tool afterwards for it, of course
most of the work is done with actual data

Of course so, and being able to trace MPs originating it is the first step

These are different complementary works we also work on, I don't see
why you want to oppose them. Lobbyplag is great but without version
controlled texts, it is unsufficient to really trace lobbies
footprints in actual definitive adopted laws.
