Git's crying Patch format detection failed
If you get the following error message while applying git patch:$ git am /path/to/0001-My-awesome-change.patchPatch format detection failed.
It means that the patch was not generated with git format-patch and transmitted correctly. Either ask the contributor to try again using the above patch creation instructions, or apply each patch separately using git apply:$ git apply --whitespace=fix /path/to/0001-My-awesome-change.patch$ git commit --author='Contributor Name <email@example.com>'
If the patch does not fit, check out older version. I usually checkout a version from the same date (or hour), that usually works.
Remember; writing is learning. That's all folks. At least for today. Cheers.
