#2093: try does not understand patches generated by git

 Version:  master     |   Keywords:
 Most of the time, you can use patches generated by git
 with "buildbot try --diff=...".  However, when git diffs a
 binary file, it uses a different format, and patch silently
 ignores those hunks, leading to mysterious failed builds.

 Drupal's testbots (not buildbot-based) recently switched to using
 'git apply' instead of 'patch' for just this reason; see
 buildbot should probably do the same (at least when faced
 with a git binary patch).
