To Brett: "I've had problems with your method of patches before Jerome - can you use "svn diff" instead of taking copies of the files and using diff? We need to know what the source revision was."
The reason I don't use svn diff directly is I often have several patches waiting on the same project. For example I submitted that one in a serie of 3 patches. I cannot then use svn diff to create my patch. I would have to create each patch independently of the other and 1- it is often not possible, 2- that means I would have to update my patch when a precedent one is checked in. So svn diff is not an option in some cases given the way I work (in batch).
So I use 'quilt' to handle the patches. It is supposed to work. I've used it successfully on all the other projects I am working on. But I sometimes make a mistake, and that render the patch not usable. I will improve my discipline and make sure that I better test apply my patch stack before submission. Maybe should I only submit them as a group (that's what is done in other projects)?
Sorry if that caused you some issues but I think that this is still the correct way to go for me.
