> 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:
> {quote}
> Git
> 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
> {quote}
> 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}}.
