* What led up to the situation?
Comparing two directories
* What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
Ran `diffoscope --html output.html a b` where a and b are directories containing
more or less the same thing.
* What was the outcome of this action?
The output contained differences in the output for find due to
filesystem-dependent behavior wrt file ordering in readdir(3).
* What outcome did you expect instead?
The sorted list should be compared instead.
