File patch tool for Foswiki


This plugin is installed with the PatchFoswikContrib. It implements a single macro: %PATCHREPORT%. This is an Admin only macro that reports on the patches installed on this system.

Patch files found on this system

This report lists the patch files found in the working/configure/patch directory. The patch summary is displayed, followed by a list of each candidate patch. The Status column is set to:
  • N/A: This version of the patch does not apply to this file. The file might have been subsequently modified by another patch or by manual edit.
  • PATCHED: The patch appears to have been applied, and no other modifications have been made to the file.
  • APPLIES: The patch matches and is eligible to be applied.

If you dont' see a report here, then verify that PatchFoswikiContribPlugin is enabled in the configuration.

ALERT! Admin access only!
