Target version:-


Use case :
  1. Someone posts a patch.
  2. Someone else :
    1. reads the issue.
    2. views the attached file using the diff viewer.
    3. clicks on a link "quote for comment".
    4. selects relevant lines and comments it.

This ability helps the patch reviewing process.

If possible, there should be one check box per patch hunk and a link or button (or two : top, bottom) to quote selected hunks.

There is a project called codestriker that provides these capabilities. It is a separate system, but it integrates with most SCM systems. I've used it and it's pretty decent.

Perhaps you can integrate something already written instead of re-inventing the wheel.

Yes, something like "codestriker-functionality" to comment "source" would be cool. I´d like to see this for patches as well as for normal commits/revisions as described in #1339
