New issue 2278 by studog.c...@gmail.com: Review Board doesn't like patch
that contains only line ending change
What version are you running? 1.5.5
What's the URL of the page containing the problem? The review request URL
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Check out source code file in svn
2. Edit with vim, notice that it is [dos] format
3. Change to [unix] and save
4. svn diff > line-ending.patch
5. Create review request, upload patch**
6. Publish request
7. Request has no patch attached
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
The request should have the patch.
What operating system are you using? What browser?
**Patch is created on a linux box with svn 1.4.3 r23084. Review board is
running from a different linux server, but, I am using it via Opera 11.51
on Win7 64 bit.
The patch is retrieved via a samba-exported view onto the svn server.
Please provide any additional information below.
Willing to test, within my capabilities; I am not the admin of the Review
Attached a quick cut-down version of the problem patch, but, I haven't
tested this to see if it actually recreates the bug.
