TMDA Patches

Contributing code is encouraged, but to make things easier on the developers, please adhere to the following guidelines.

Patch submissions should be sent to the tmda-workers mailing list. You do not need to be subscribed to post a message there.

Submitting Patches

Here is an example illustrating some of the above concepts:

  1. Checkout the latest developement sources from TMDA's Subversion repository. This will create a 'tmda' subdirectory in your current working directory containing the source:
     % cd /usr/local/src
     % svn co
  2. Make the necessary changes:
     % cd /usr/local/src/tmda
     (hack, hack, hack....)
  3. Create your patch called "tmda.diff":
     % cd /usr/local/src/tmda
     % svn diff > tmda.diff

If you wish, accompany your patch with an update to the apropriate ChangeLog file. If you use Emacs, you can use the M-x add-change-log-entry command to do this automatically.

Guidelines for writing ChangeLog entries are governed by the GNU coding standards. See the Change Logs section for details.
