Jens, All,

On 2015-02-08 11:58 +0000, Jens Zettelmeyer spake thusly:

git-send-email can (should) be used always, not only to send preliminary
patches for review.

Not doing so means your patch gets mangled by your mailer.

First, you sent an HTML mail, which is frowned upon, and sometime even
rejected by the list (yours managed to slip trhough, though). Using
git-send-email ensures the mail is plain-text only.

Then, what if your patch was already correct? If you had sent it with
git-send-email, we could have applied it as-is. Now, doing the way you
did means we'd have to ask you to resend it, even if it was correct.

Just always use git-send-email, it makes life easier for you and for us.
And easy life is better! ;-)

The indentation gets broken here. As I said in my previous reply,
indentation should be:
  - one tab for the options,
  - one tab + two spaces for the help text,
like so:

   |config BR2_PACKAGE_BATCTL
   |	bool "batctl"
   |	depends on BR2_INET_IPV6
   |	depends on BR2_TOOLCHAIN_HAS_THREADS # libnl
   |	select BR2_PACKAGE_LIBNL
   |	help
   |	  Batctl is the configuration and debugging tool for batman-adv.
   |
   |	  http://www.open-mesh.org/projects/batman-adv/wiki/Using-batctl

Here, not using git-send-email (probably you cut-n-pasted in gmail's
compose window) probably broke the indentation, but there's no way we
can know if your patch is correct, or if it was your mailer breaking it.
Using git-send-email guarantees this won't happen, and that the patch is
sent un-mangled.

Ditto, overly long lines got mangled. Using git-send-email would keep
long lines.

Ditto the indentation: _CMDS are indented by one tab, and continuation
lines are indented by one additional tab, like so:

   |define BATCTL_BUILD_CMDS
   |	$(TARGET_MAKE_ENV) $(MAKE) -C $(@D) CC="$(TARGET_CC)" \
   |		CFLAGS="$(TARGET_CFLAGS) -I$(STAGING_DIR)/usr/include/libnl3" \
   |		LDFLAGS="$(TARGET_LDFLAGS)"
   |endef

> +endef
> +
> +define BATCTL_INSTALL_TARGET_CMDS
> + $(INSTALL) -m 755 -D $(@D)/batctl $(TARGET_DIR)/usr/sbin/batctl

Ditto the indentation: one tab.

Otherwise, there's nothing that really stands out.

Please, resend using git-send-email. ;-)

Regards,
Yann E. MORIN.
