P4DTI issue job000635

TitleAG doesn't offer "patch" utility for Windows
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionInstalling the P4DTI for Bugzilla requires the use of the utility "patch". This is not standard on Windows, and the P4DTI for Bugzilla is now supported on Windows. The AG should explain that "patch" has to be installed, and offer a source of it for Windows. Our test machine has Cygwin installed, which comes with "patch".
AnalysisPossible sources include CygWin, MKS, UnxUtils, and others. Maybe best if we choose a single freely-redistributable patch.exe from one of these and put it in the project imports.
