Apparently I’m now writing a drupal drush module for patch management, and slowly understanding what that entails. I’ve looked around and surprisingly there really isn’t a good solution for this yet. There are a number of solutions for applying other people’s patches that are posted somewhere, but what I really care about is being able to easily keep, and reapply the dozen or so patches I’ve made to drupal modules to make mhvlug.org work. Some of these were due to bugs that don’t seem to be getting fixed any time soon. Some are due to lost of drupal modules not working with PHP 5.3.
Regardless of the reason, I’ve apparently found a new itch to scratch, which hopefully isn’t going to take me too long, because I really need to get back to android hacking.
