Subject Names of patches for jira issues
Date Sat, 11 Aug 2007 00:06:34 GMT
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?
