Re: Patch ping: diff output specification

Thanks! But I think you're too late. Two things:

* Before writing code, ask on the list for the latest state of the
union on an issue. 'svn diff --summarize' has been in svn 1.4 for
months, and you probably just did a bunch of work for no reason. :-(

* In the future, when writing a patch, write it against the latest
trunk code, not against a snapshot of prior release. All new code
goes into the trunk, so if you don't develop against the trunk, then
there's a risk your patch won't apply cleanly.
