New issue 1959 by steve.he...@gmail.com: Looking for a list of DIFF file
settings - using Mercurial 1.7.3
What version are you running? 1.52
What's the URL of the page containing the problem?
locally - http://10.91.134.30/r/11/diff/#index_header
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Create a diff (using hg export, hg postreview extension or post-review
2. upload diff/patch to reviewboard
3. view anything but the simplest diff and receive "Exception: The patch
to ... didn't apply cleanly...."
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Expected to see a Diff view in ReviewBoard, instead get the Exception
What operating system are you using? What browser?
Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows 7 64 bit
Please provide any additional information below.
It appears that the bug is because the diff file format is different than
what RB is expecting. I have better luck creating reviews on Ubuntu than
Windows 7, but it's still very spotty on linux.
It looks/feels like RB has a defined set of expectations on the diff file
format, but I can't find these documented anywhere. Can anyone point me a
documented list of settings? Thank you,
