Description User image timeless 2007-01-02 23:34:43 PST
if someone tries to attach a file and their browser tells us it's a patch/diff, we should automatically mark it as such.

I think sometimes people want to attach patches and don't want them to be treated as patches. I don't know why they'd want to do this, though...
Comment 2 User image timeless 2007-01-14 06:49:20 PST
i don't think that's relevant. if they want to do that, they can check the manual mime type. this is only for automatic detection.

it really bothers me that I can't use the diff action unless i mark an attachment as a patch.

I'm with timeless. The only reason I always check the "patch" checkbox is because Firefox detects my patch as text/x-patch and I cannot view it from the browser, not use the Diff feature.

validate_is_patch() is called before validate_content_type() and so at this point $cgi->param('contenttype') is still undefined.

You have to set 'contenttype' to 'text/plain', else when you go to the 'Details' page, Bugzilla tries to download the patch instead of displaying it. So you can view the patch in 'Diff' mode, but you cannot review/edit it. Not really useful.

Nit: also, please use the Bugzilla standards and put && at the beginning of lines, instead of at the end, and also put the { braket on a new line:

if ($a_very_long_line
    && $another_very_long_line)

I forgot to mention this in my previous patch (because I didn't check), but you don't need to check if 'contenttypemethod' and 'contenttype' are defined. They are in all cases, else an error is thrown by validate_content_type() the line above this condition. So you can safely remove these two lines.

Your patch is working fine. r=LpSolit with the two lines above removed.

This patch doesn't apply cleanly on the 3.0 branch. All you have to do is to append '0' after 'return' the line above your IF condition: || return 0. Here too, do not forget to remove the two lines checking for "defined $cgi->param(foo)", we already know they are defined.
