Refresh destroys patch
Last modified: 2017-04-06 06:29:40 EDT
Description of problem:
Using "quilt refresh" will destroy the patch file cause to much quoting in the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Use "quilt push" within a quilt managed tree with a patch that patches two (or
more) files (!) and then run "quilt refresh".
The resulting patch will be destroyed. (In fact it will do a diff between the
two files and not between the original and the changed file.)
Mostly the same patch than before the refresh.
To fix it apply the attached patch.
If this parts are quoted no list will be created but a simple value will be
created. That's the reason why the 'echo "$files"' do not work properly within
the corrected version. In the uncorrected version it do print one string with
one (or more) linefeed separated file names. In the corrected version it would
just print the first value of the list. (So I fixed this also.)
