Incoherent patch guidelines

From: Grzegorz Adam Hankiewicz <gradha_at_titanium.sabren.com>
Date: 2004-09-20 21:23:44 CEST

The patch guidelines in the HACKING file state that the recommended
way to send patches is included in the body of the message. On the
other hand, http://subversion.tigris.org/mailing-list-guidelines.html
states that the best is to attach them. What will it be then?

About writing log messages, it is unclear how to deal with patches
which deal with only a single file. Specifying it in the log
message itself seems quite useless because the generated patch
already contains a path reference to the file being modified. IOW,
the guideline illustrates the complex example and fails to show a
basic version for one line patches.

  Please don't send me private copies of your public answers. Thanks.
