Sorry, I should have clarified that further. I meant that the
additional tests looked good to me.
As it turns out, the patch I used to test this on happened to have a
blank line as the last line of context before the base-commit line, so
I'd overlooked this in the non-MIME case. The issue you mentioned does
apply to both the MIME and non-MIME cases, and I agree that it needs
fixing. It doesn't seem like a functional issue, but aesthetically it
doesn't look good.
Do you plan to make that change to print an additional blank line
(likely inside print_bases), or should I?
