Regarding the Mod-ReadMe standard

I've been thinking about the mod-readme standard lately and I've seen some people using hdiff insted. There is both positive and negative things with that.

Hdiff:
+ Easy and fast to generate
- Can be confusing for a newbie to understand
- Holds very little information about the mod
? Is there anyway to include database changes?

The old standard:
+ Very easy to understand
+ The "header" holds very much info about the mod
- A real pain to make

Should we consider making the hdiff standard? Or maybe a modified version of it?

Re: Regarding the Mod-ReadMe standard

The problem of making a modified version of hdiff would be that it wouldn't be easy and fast to generate any longer, if nobody writes a tool for it.

Re: Regarding the Mod-ReadMe standard

What do you mean? To make hdiff include more info about the mod would still make the "steps" more easy to generate.

Re: Regarding the Mod-ReadMe standard

I like old readme not HDiff
in old you can include how to install and modify the mod step by step not just the diff between files,

maybe some one create something (useing PHP) can read the "Readme" files and execute it to build auto Moded PunBB.

A modified version of hdiff would do that.
