How to Create a Patch

If you have a patch that you wish to be included in the Fusion repository, this is what you need to do:

  • File a Ticket: No patches will be made to trunk unless they are accompanied by a trac ticket. For complete instructions: FilingBugs
  • Create the Patch File:
    • Get a fresh checkout of trunk or branch. See Using SVN for information on how to check out the trunk or a branch.
    • Make your the modifications for your patch.
    • Run the tests until they all pass.
    • From a commandline, run svn diff > yourpatchname.patch to create a patch file.
  • Attach Patch to Ticket: Click the Attach File Button under the Attachments heading and select the yourpatchname.patch file.
  • Attach new files to Ticket: Files you have created as part of your change are not caught by the diff process. You will have to add these files individually to the patch.
