[haiku-development] Patch format?

Sorry for this rather ignorant question, but when I submit a patch
to Trac, how critical are the IDs in the diff?  Being SVN-deprived,
I have to do a 'diff -u' on the original and modified files, so
although the diff details are correct, the file paths are not what
SVN would expect.  (I'm not even sure how the updater will use the
diff.)

I can edit the text to match what SVN would produce, except that I'm
not even sure of the revision of the source I have.  It is 'alpha 1',
but downloaded from berlios, so there is no specific rev number that
I can find.

Advice appreciated.
