Comment #2 on issue 1792 by jira.s...@gmail.com: post-review fails to
upload diff with only binary files modified
It appears as though the problem is caused by svn. From what I've read, svn
does not support binary diffs (they only support text). There is a way to
get around this though:
If you try to do an > svn diff binary.bin you will probably get a Cannot
First set an editor so you can edit the file's svn properties.
You can take a look at the properties file with:
svn propedit svn:mime-type binary.bin
And delete the svn:mime-type property with:
svn propdel svn:mime-type binary.bin
Then you should be able to get a diff using svn diff binary.bin (svn now
thinks it is a text file).
