Assuming we have a number of feature branches, we may well have to resolve conflicts among them, so an integration branch seems like the right way forward. So unless we just build the package from the integration branch to produce a monolithic patch, your algorithm is something to focus on! I am still not convinced that it is possible to extract historic patches from the ancestry of a tag on the integration branch, but I'd love to be proven wrong! Unfortunately, I won't be able to look into this again before next week. -- .''`. martin f. krafft <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> : :' : proud Debian developer, author, administrator, and user `. `'` http://people.debian.org/~madduck - http://debiansystem.info `- Debian - when you have better things to do than fixing systems "durch frauen werden die höhepunkte des lebens bereichert und die tiefpunkte vermehrt." - friedrich nietzsche
