Patches
-------
The best way to submit patches is to publish your git repository and
ask developers to git-fetch from you.
The best way to submit patches is to provide files created with
git-format-patch.
For bug fixes where the patch is small you can file a bug report at
It is recommended that you file a bug report at
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/ and attach your patch to it as a plain text
file, not compressed. If your patch is reasonably small you can submit
it to the gimp-developer@lists.xcf.berkeley.edu mailing list. You can
create the patch file with git-format-patch
it to the gimp-developer-list@gnome.org mailing list.
If the patch needs to be discussed, you should also consider using the
mailing list instead of Bugzilla because bug reports tend to be hard
