completed by: Shea Barton

mentors: Alexander Schremmer, ReimarBauer, Thomas Waldmann, Ronny Pfannschmidt



Create a screencast of making a patch for / applying a patch to moinmoin.



The screencast should be at least 4 min.

Use a release version of moin for this task (e.g. 1.9.3).


  • explain how to create a patch file
  • explain how to reasonably choose a filename for it
  • explain how to apply a patch file
  • explain what to do if it doesn't apply cleanly:
    • dealing with rejects
    • recreating a patch file that does apply cleanly
  • explain option --dry-run

Deliverable: a screencast in .ogv (Ogg Vorbis Video) format
