When a patch fails testing because it doesn't apply, and the error reads "Ensure the patch applies to the tip of the chosen code-base." what does this mean?


Basically your patch have to be applyable with the command

patch -p1 < $filename.patch

http://drupal.org/node/707484 is a pretty good tutorial how to create patches so the testbot can use it.
