Create the initial patch
From a clone of the Standard repository, prepare the patch:
git diff 0.7.0 0.7.1 docs/review-template.html > review-template-0.7.0-0.7.1.patch
Prepare the patch
The patch lines at the top of the path reflect the template file path:
--- a/docs/review-template.html +++ b/docs/review-template.html
Edit those lines to match the path to the assessment in the repository you wish to update, for example:
--- a/path/to/standard-for-public-code-assessment.html +++ b/path/to/standard-for-public-code-assessment.html
Apply the patch
From a clone of the assessed repository, apply the modified patch:
patch -Np1 -i /path/to/modified-review-template.patch
This command should result in exactly one
Hunk #1 FAILED message for the line containing the name of the repository, and several
Hunk succeeded messages, one for each line which changed in the criteria text.
If there is more than one
Hunk FAILED message, the corresponding
.rej file can be inspected to see what did not apply.
git diff command will show the result of the applied patch.
