Description Eric Seidel (no email) 2009-08-18 22:33:40 PDT
https://bugs.webkit.org/attachment.cgi?id=35096&action=edit is an example. We need to chdir to the root of the repository before calling out to svn-create-patch. Either by passing a working directory to svn-create-patch, or doing a chdir to the root first, or whatever.

I want to use some of the testing infrastructure I added in bug 28436 when writing this test.

After discussion via email, the consensus is that we should roll out this change. When we do so, we should add some unit tests to scm_unittest.py to document the intentionally different post-diff behavior between svn and git (which matches how their various diff commands operate).

I'm not a svn user. I'm not sure if this is still an issue.
