Re: [opensuse-packaging] Quilt refresh options
It works because quilt relies on getopt to parse the options, and getopt
is happy with abbreviated long options as long as they are unambiguous.
That being said, refresh accepts both --sort and
--strip-trailing-whitespace so --s is definitely ambiguous. Looks like a
bug in getopt.

Anyway, you never know which options will be added to quilt in the
future, plus spelling out the options makes it easier for the reader to
understand what he/she is doing. So I have updated the wiki to mention
explicit quilt options.

Hi, Togan.

quilt ref --s --d -p1

--d == --diffstat
--s == --sort

Best regards.

Hi,

According to Packaging Patch Guidelines at
<http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Packaging_Patches_guidelines> use of
quilt is exampled as follows

quilt ref --s --d -p1

However neither the man page nor the quilt refresh -h provides the
options --s and --d

It would be nice to know what they are suppose to mean

Thanks

Togan
