Description Christopher Aillon 2007-04-13 13:14:33 UTC
Can we make gendiff use -p as well as -u?  It would include some additional
information about where in the original file the patch is being made which will
help tons when updating patches made with gendiff (because of a rebase and
needing to remerge the patch).  While it's touted as including the "C function"
it doesn't hurt to use on other types of files.

gendiff already uses -p, at least in rpm-4.4.9:


: ${DIFF:=diff -p}
