No-one responded to this on the user list, but it is kind of related to this
thread.

The HACKING document specifies that patches should be in unified-diff format
and that they should have a log message in a particular format. It does not
state how the log message should be included in the patch.

Looking through the dev list, log messages seem to be prefixed to the
unified-diff and enclosed triple square brackets:

[[[
Log message lines...
]]]

Is this an unwritten standard, a GNU standard, or something
else? Is the preferred patch format documented anywhere?

The reason for the question is that I want to propose some changes to TSVN
to make patches easier to create and apply. Obviously if there is an
existing standard then it should be used.
