I put together some code to fetch all the non-obsolete patches from
this page and see if they apply against trunk.
Basically it tries --strip with 0,1,2,3 and then does an exhaustive
search of the tree for places where the patch might apply.
These are my results.
For ease of viewing, here is a list filtered to only the successfully
The "Strip" and "Path" information is what you need to apply the
patch. (eg. patch --directory=includes/ --strip 3 < mypatchfile)
Eventually I may update these scripts to run all the automated tests
on each patch that apply cleanly. However, I won't be getting to it
in the near future. ;-)
In the meantime, hopefully this makes it easier to catch up on the backlog.
If anyone wants to mess with the code (it is in Ruby), please let me
know and I will get it up on GitHub.
