Hi Simon, I am getting this in my xemacs-21.5 working directory:
patching file 'c:\Hacking\cvs.xemacs.org\XEmacs\xemacs-21.5-clean\lisp\about.el'
Hunk #1 FAILED at 1.
Hunk #2 succeeded at 126 with fuzz 1 (offset 3 lines).
Hunk #3 FAILED at 177.
Hunk #4 FAILED at 206.
Hunk #5 succeeded at 1134 (offset 64 lines).
Hunk #6 succeeded at 1712 (offset 81 lines).
3 out of 6 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file
Is this patch for 21.5, as I assumed?
Oops! No, it was for 21.4. The files seem to differ a lot between
21.4 and 21.5, is this intentional? Should the file be synced either
I saw some minor typos to fix but will wait for a cleanly applying
Try the patch below, it is against 21.5. Slightly different from the
last patch as well.
