[New-bugs-announce] [issue11868] Minor word-choice improvement in devguide "lifecycle of a patch" opening paragraph
report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Carl Meyer <carl at dirtcircle.com>:
The opening paragraph of the "lifecycle of a patch" devguide page contains a confusing parenthetical aside implying that an "svn-like" workflow would mean never *saving* anything to your working copy and using "hg diff" to generate a patch. This is obviously wrong given the usual meaning of "save": if you never save anything to your working copy, "hg diff" will be empty.
Patch attached with proposed alternative wording.
