My problem is that you send a wall of text, with all the patches mangled
I have to start fishing for the changes now.
The normal standard is to send patches using "git send-email" which will
format the patches for a proper review. It's also more common to send
as they are easier to review.
Ok, I see. I will have a look how this works.
If I use your big patch
patch now and just apply it as-is, I am risking of breaking
grub-installer on other
architectures and you can probably imagine how the other
will react to such a change.
I think I understand. :-)
You don't have to make mini patches, but the changes should be separate
other logically so that we minimize the risk of breaking something.
Ok, I will try to separate this in smaller chunks. E.g. I could make a
patch which adds the functions only - just adding them without name
collisions should not break anything. The parts in the main execution
path can be added with another patch. I don't think that these can be
separated, if it is required that the script should work after each new
patch. Or is it sufficient if it works after applying the whole patch set?
Thanks for taking the time to describe the issue with my earlier message.
