Subject: [OMPI devel] Gatekeeper request

Hi folks

When you submit a CMR that includes a patch (as opposed to applying a commit), would you -please- include a note indicating that "this patch adds a new file"?

Unfortunately, applying a patch doesn't cause svn to add the new file. This leaves the branch broken without any warning. The gatekeeper can only catch this when they happen to do an "svn status" and notice there are untracked files...and then try to figure out if they are supposed to be tracked, are new generated files, or...?
