To all people who have send patches to the XEmacs Patches list and
have not had feedback.
The XEmacs-patches(a)xemacs.org list is the entry point for all
contributions to the XEmacs source and/or packages. It is "moderated"
by a bot that checks whether the messages actually contains a patch.
The normal procedure after send a patch to this address is as follows:
1. Immediately you will get a message from the bot confirming the
receipt of the patch.
2. The patch is archived at www.xemacs.org
3.a.1 You will receive a message that your patch has been
Checked & Approved for inclusion, followed by
3.a.2 A message confirming the patch has been applied to the
3.b. A message telling you the patch has been rejected and why
(normally with suggestions for improvement).
However, it has been discovered that the bot had a configuration error
that dropped some patches on the floor after sending out the automated
confirmation messages. This problem as how been rectified. If you have
send a patch to XEmacs-patches(a)xemacs.org and hear nothing except for
the automated replay then please do so again.
We apologize for the inconvenience. Please be advised, however, that
we are not able to give refunds.
P.S. Now what I have your attention, let me point out that the ideal
- A short description of the problem solved.
- A ChangeLog entry (c.f M-x add-change-log-entry) included
literally (not as a diff).
- A unified diff (diff -u) of the changed file, made from the
toplevel XEmacs directory.
This greatly simplifies the jobs of the patch reviewers and appliers.
