If I manually apply a patch due to an error when trying to install the patch via SSH, should I update the "applied_patches" file manually also?


It is not mandatory , but its a good practice so that other dev that might work on project will know that the patch is applied

and can be used to get of list of applied patches like

$ grep -F '|' app/etc/applied.patches.list|cut -f 2,1 -d'|'

It is not mandatory , applied_patches for reference any other developer will know that the patch is applied.

Note : Any reporting tool consider the patches applied based on behavior-based identification patterns.
