New submission from Chris Jerdonek:

This issue is to mention in the devguide how to create diffs with the changeset number when --git is configured on.  Perhaps this can be done via a FAQ like: "How can I get Rietveld to work with a 2.7 patch?"

Background: Currently, the devguide recommends configuring Mercurial to use --git when making diffs.  However, this causes the changeset ID to be left off of patch files and, for example, prevents Rietveld from working with patches to non-default branches.  See also this thread:


This issue describes a couple work-arounds:
