git-svn: fix dcommit losing changes when out-of-date from svn
There was a bug in dcommit (and commit-diff) which caused deltas to be generated against the latest version of the changed file in a repository, and not the revision we are diffing (the tree) against locally. This bug can cause recent changes to the svn repository to be silently clobbered by git-svn if our repository is out-of-date. Thanks to Steven Grimm for noticing the bug. The (few) people using the commit-diff command are now required to use the -r/--revision argument. dcommit usage is unchanged. Signed-off-by: Eric Wong <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
