Re: Declarative Diversions - GSoC Project Update 1



It will have to support whitespace in filenames but I haven't decided how to escape it yet. Backslashes are a good idea but so is seperating them by line. However if I'm looking for newlines in may become awkward in the code. Either way it will have to be resolved.
If anyone else has any opinions on how to resolve the let me know, I'll see what the general consensus is and work on it like that.

Or to use two lines instead of one. And to support multiple entries make
the different entries separated by an empty line (so that it's possible to
add supplementary fields in the future shall that be required).
