Subject: b4 not fetching proper patch

Message-ID: <> (raw)


I'm not sure this is worth fixing but I though I would report it anyway:

I want to apply just this patch:

However b4 am -p linux-rtc -c -t -s -l -P _ -o -
ends up with:

Grabbing thread from
Checking for newer revisions on
Analyzing 20 messages in the thread
Will use the latest revision: v2
You can pick other revisions using the -vN flag
Specified msgid is not present in the series, cannot cherry-pick

The issue here is that this series has been sent as a reply to another
series labeled v2 that it supersedes and b4 insists in using this v2.
