Actually, I think the documentation issues for Git are now being
managed in the Documentation project issue queue, with tag "git".
And there is already an issue to merge the previous stuff in the
patching section into the Git docs. It's in the Documentation project.

Thanks for catching that. I really think we should just get those
instructions out of there.

This doc needs to be fixed then:http://drupal.org/patch/create
It says to use:
diff -up path/to/file/example.module path/to/file/exampleNew.module>
Which produces p0 patches :(.

I noticed in another thread that somebody suggested git diff --no-prefix
for creating patches.
Please don't do that any more. We've moved to standard git patches (git
diff without the --no-prefix, meaning a patch -p1 patch).
Testbot support for -p0 patches (--no-prefix) will be removed around the
end of May. See http://groups.drupal.org/node/140204
Some of you may have the --no-prefix stuff in your .gitconfig. Please
remove it from there as well.
In the issue queues, please start to insist on rerolls for -p0 formatted
patches (if they have no a/ and b/ in front of the filenames.
Thanks for your cooperation.
