Thanks!

It makes the most sense to apply this to the release after RT 3.8, as
it will break all of RT’s translations, which makes it somewhat
undesirable to apply in the middle of a stable series.

It’s useful to send patches as attachments, so they can be saved to
disk for application cleanly. Similarly, one should generally diff
with the “old” version first in your commandline like so:

diff -ur old new

Doing otherwise has the diff reversed and will leave the developers
looking at the patch trying to figure out why you removed the nice
semantic and markup for ugly and markup :wink:

It’s also good style to include the text of your description in the
body of the message, but that matters less :wink:

If you can regen the patch easily, shoot it over to rt-bugs@bestpractical.com
so we don’t lose track of it for the future.

Again, thanks for the patch!

Alas, gmail has yet to provide an easy way to create plain text
attachements in messages
without the bother of making and uploading a local file :stuck_out_tongue:

Yeah yeah, reverses happen.

I am not aware of any MUA that would allow you to paste into a
window and create a file on the fly. Potentially useful, though.
