When you push or pull reversal film (E.g. Tri-x) can anyone tell me which developer do you perform the actual push/ pull process? For negatives it only goes through the developer once. But reversal you use the developer, then bleach then develop again. Which one do you alter the time/ temperature process? Or is it both?

it is the first developer only that needs to be adjusted. Indeed, in the entire reversal process, only the first developer is time critical - everything else is 'to completion'.

....Now I'm curious if diafine will work in a reversal process.....that would perhaps allow an additional stop or 2 without must increase in grain theoretically.

I tried it -- Diafine is too soft as first developer. Use a paper developer in lower dilution for pushing. I prefer Tetenal Dokumol in 1+6 or 1+7.
