P4DTI issue job000636

TitleApplying Bugzilla patch can put file in wrong place
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionThe Bugzilla 2.16.1 patch provided with the P4DTI includes the entirety of a a new file, template/en/custom/bug/edit.html.tmpl. If the patch is applied simply with "patch < bugzilla-2.16.1.patch", this new file is created in the main bugzilla directory.
AnalysisUse the "-p1" switch to patch. This forces patch to look at the path for this file listed in the patch file, rather than guessing the location (and getting it wrong).
