New issue 2172 by keith.bu...@gmail.com: review board is modifying my
What version are you running?
What's the URL of the page containing the problem?
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. I'm using git, so upload a diff obtained from "git diff"
2. Download the diff
3. Compare the file you uploaded with the downloaded file
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I'd expect them to be the same, but they're usually not. I think RB is
sorting the files alphabetically and removing some text, among other things
I'm not sure about.
What operating system are you using? What browser?
Interacting with review board is done with Windows7 and IE8. The diffs are
generated from CentOS 5.5 on a git repository.
Please provide any additional information below.
It wouldn't be a problem if I could download the diffs and apply them as a
patch, which usually works fine, but when I upload larger diff's (400+
files modified/added/deleted), running patch on that diff usually fails,
though patch always works successfully if I use the diff file I uploaded.
