Could you provide sample data and answer so a new test case can be added?

Does anyone know how to add patches to a file? (It looked like it was in a
"diff" format. Isn't there an automated tool for this, or do I apply the
changes manually?)

Have we branched for release yet? I don't want to add the changes (to the
main line) until then so I won't risk breaking the release build.
