Discussion: Questions about the patch system

I'm learning how to create and apply patches (thanks, Marcus), but since I'm still so new to using the system, I would like to make sure of a few things...

1) If a patch which I post to the PDI forum is undesirable for some reason, will
the "Reverse" button completely undo the patch on my machine and revert to my
original live and reference files?

2) What is the function of the "Recompute patch information" button?

3) I don't understand the system being used to come up with patch names.  Is there
any reason why I should not rename my patches with more meaningful names like
11jun02.patch instead of leaving them as something like 0288VPM.patch?
 
Thanks,
Charles
