Description Jan Kratochvil 2007-01-15 20:08:34 EST
Description of problem:
Generated .rej files are in the inconvenient context diff.
Unified diff is preferred.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
patch-2.5.4-29.2.2

Additional info:
At least SUSE and Debian provide the patches, I found some at:
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=26675
This link definitely should not be considered as the best patch available.
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2007-01-16 08:50:29 EST
For rejects I myself prefer context format.  I don't want to start adding extra
options when different distributions each have their own.  Let's wait until it's
upstream.

It got fixed in recent `patch' by upstream --reject-format, wow.
