i have no such a problem. the documentatin of a patch is always the meaning of
a user who work with a patch, if user got one from somwhere he should to know
how describe it.
i just was try to work with patches from other peoples. IMHO if you work with
OSP you newer be shure that you work with SVN patches. the ideology of patch
comes from GNU comunity, and GNU utilities makes the patches in common way, that
can be understood in any GNU workspace, so IMHO, no problem to apply the patch
other from SVN. now i use the Kdiff3 to do what i need.
