[Libreoffice] Migration of build repository patches

Hi all,

I commited an initial proposal of an awk script that creates a shell
script to create a annotated commit on master. It is here:


To use it you would (usually in batches of multiple patches):
 - cd build/patches/dev300
 - awk -f extractapplyinfo.awk -v PATCHNAME=foo.diff > migrate-foo.sh
 - fixup migrate-foo.sh
 - run bash migrate-foo.sh with an set environment
   (having $SOLARSRC set is enough)

Open points:
 - it currently uses --no-verify, because of whitespace in the git logs
   included in the commit message
 - we should fixup the authors in the apply file to all conform to the
   A U Thor <author at example.com> format beofre migration
 - the script (unlike the one I had before and accidentally deleted
   before commiting) ignores "SectionIssue" syntax. We should just add
   those issue numbers behind the patch on the line.
 - Before we start migrating, we should decide if the generated commit
   message is not totally disgusting to anyone involved. As such
   discussions generally can take longer that the usual editor
   flamewar, I would like to set a deadline on this right here right
   now: We should use whatever is current state this Friday at noon UTC.

Comments welcome!

Best Regards,
