Subject RE: Names of patches for jira issues
Date Sat, 11 Aug 2007 00:47:54 GMT

A small addition to Craig's proposed convention:
ppenjpa-xxx.z.patch or openjpa-xxx.z.txt 
where xxx is the JIRA issue number and z is the patch number as often
there are multiple versions of the patch on the same issue.

Subject: Names of patches for jira issues

I'd like to propose an informal convention for jira patch attachments.

1. Use the name of the jira in the patch file name, and use either a
.txt or .patch suffix.

2. Do the svn diff >openjpa-249.patch from trunk.

These small things make it easier when downloading the patch to know
where it applies and you don't have to rename the patch to remember
which issue it applies to.

Obviously, no one will complain about details like this when getting
patches "free as in work" but it might make it a bit easier to verify

What do you all think?
