Nice idea ! I'll have a look.
BTW I've had something somewhat similar for maybe a decade or so
- src + ports,
- generic + personal diffs as 2 parallel patch trees (cos some of my patches
I hope may appeal generaly but some probaly only I will ever want),
- targets a load of different release levels inc current
- only does a one off pass, installing files & applying diffs to a virgin
Your approach will be nicer than mine for tracking current ports.
I look forward to trying it, & if necessary perhaps bending my patch
trees to fit your macros :-)
