So, I've been working on a git-specific helper script for posting
reviews which, among other things, includes the git log in the diff.
For a while, I was seeing a bug where the log shows up incorrectly when
posted from a Windows machine. I finally determined that this is caused
by the diff quoting the file paths, i.e.:
diff --git "a/.gitlog" "b/.gitlog"
new file mode 100644
It seems that 'git diff' quotes the file names if they contain
characters that might otherwise confuse the diff parser (what's not seen
here is that the original file names were e.g. 'C:\Users\My
User\Temporary Files\..." and have had string substitution performed to
get to ".gitlog").
What I'm wondering is, if a file name actually needs to be quoted, does
RB correctly parse the quoted name? And in particular, should it also be
handling the above case "better" than it seems to be doing?
