util: Add maintainer tools to create upstream patches
Review Request #3772 - Created Dec. 21, 2016 and submitted
Changeset 11768:ef435292d793 --------------------------- util: Add maintainer tools to create upstream patches This changeset adds a maintainer script, create_patches.sh, that can be used to prepare for upstream from a git repository. The script can be used to generate patches in Mercurial or git format. The commit messages in the exported patches are all filtered, see upstream_msg_filter.sed, to ensure that irrelevant meta data isn't included in the upstream commit. Kudos to Curtis Dunham and Nikos Nikoleris for reviews and usability enhancements for earlier versions of this patch.
