When we did the Git migration, we set up the testbots to continue to allow both -p0 (old style Drupal patches) and -p1 (the normal Git style patches), but started encouraging the community to switch. This allowed existing patches on issues to continue to test OK, and avoided irritating everybody enormously.
However, now we have a problem. How do we teach people to successfully apply patches if there can be more than one kind? I think we have to phase out -p0 patches sooner rather than later. This would mean:
- Disabling -p0 testing on the testbot, meaning that -p0 patches would fail to apply
- Announcing that -p1 must become the standard in the issue queue.
Would a May 31 phase-out date be OK with everybody? Are you seeing new -p0 patches in the queue?
