Minor update to make_svn_diff to allow binary adds/diffs to be properly represented
Review Request #1194 — Created Nov. 4, 2009 and submitted
Using git-svn with postreview.py causes binary diffs to be "hidden" -- i.e. reviewboard servers do not show that a binary file has been added/modified. Prior to the patch, binary files would be represented in the diff as such: Index: path/to/binary/file =========================================== Binary files path/to/binary/file and path/to/binary/file differ This change modifies that slightly so that the generated patches are more like svn: Index: path/to/binary/file =========================================== Cannot display: file marked as binary type. svn:mime-type = application/octet-stream New svn files also usually have a property associated with them -- this has been purposely omitted for simplicity.
Tested change against an RC 1.0 Beta 2 ReviewBoard instance with a 1.4 SVN server. As expected, generated patches with this change reflected all image & audio asset changes/additions. Without the patch, no asset changes were reflected.
