Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-11937) Update patch submission guidelines to stop using --no-prefix
Date Wed, 10 Sep 2014 21:58:34 GMT
Sean Busbey created HBASE-11937:

             Summary: Update patch submission guidelines to stop using --no-prefix
                 Key: HBASE-11937
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11937
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: documentation
            Reporter: Sean Busbey
            Priority: Minor

Right now the submission guidelines include the use of --no-prefix in the Methods to Create
Patches section:

git format-patch is preferred because it preserves commit messages. Use git squash first,
to combine smaller commits into a single larger one.

* git format-patch --no-prefix origin/master --stdout > HBASE-XXXX.patch
* git diff --no-prefix origin/master > HBASE-XXXX.patch

The use of --no-prefix means that users of {{git apply}} and {{git am}} have to know to specify
{{-p0}} and (which strips 0 levels of prefix). Both of those tools default to stripping the
1 level of prefix git makes by default.

The guide for HBase committers section on reviewing doesn't give any suggestions on how to
apply patches from contributors. It should probably give examples for using {{git am}} and
{{git apply}}.
