Hi Andreas, What was the rationale for this commit?
commit 19ce60a19ac87230e05603e2ca31030d8b3143ad Author: Andreas Gruenbacher Date: Tue Mar 25 23:15:37 2008 +0000 - Assume patches are in unified format by default when applying them. (For working with other patch formats, make sure to remove "--unified" from QUILT_PATCH_OPTS in ~/.quiltrc or /etc/quilt.quiltrc.) GNU patch should detect the format of patch files automatically. Having --unified passed unconditionally by default breaks the use of quilt with other patch formats. I just received a bug report about it: https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1088281 I am just discovering about that default setting in /etc/quilt.quiltrc, I had no idea it was there. In fact I'm surprised nobody complained about it before. Most probably this is because ~/.quiltrc overrides /etc/quilt.quiltrc completely and many quilt users have such a file (including myself.) Can we please remove this setting and just let GNU patch detect patch formats?
