How is it not a git-formatted patch? I created it with
$ git diff <filenames> > diff.20170520.diff
, from the top level Emacs directory.
"Git-formatted patch" means "patch produced by git format-patch". A typical workflow is:
git checkout -b NEW-BRANCH master # start new topic branch off master
# make changes
git format-patch master # create patch files for all commits since master
The patch files thus produced can be applied using 'git am'. To send them directly to the mailing list, you can use 'send-email' instead of 'format-patch'.
