We talked in IRC last night about how, given that we're using 'git diff', most of the current patching process in Git instructions is unnecessary for basic changes. webchick, marvil07 and I worked on the following update. We weren't quite done, but I want to capture where we were when we quit for the night:
Creating a patch
For most improvements, use the following after making your changes:
git diff > [description]-[issue-number]-[comment-number].patch
For more complex improvements that require adding/removing files, work over the course of multiple day , or collaboration with others, see the more advanced patch workflow
Note: we'll need to work on the advanced workflow at the same time we consider updating the instructions.
