The first part of developing a patch is the same as for developers without commit access:
However, now that you have commit access, you can commit the fix and push
it up to the repo yourself!
Let’s assume you’ve made a bug fix directly on
Here’s how to commit your changes:
$ git diff Review the patch one more time $ git add … Add any files for committing $ git commit Commit the files, with a commit message $ git push Push the files up to the repo. Ta da!
The first three steps are the same described earlier (see Starting A New Branch). The ‘git push’ is what’s new, and it updates the repo on Savannah. Congratulations!
As a courtesy, you should send a note to the mailing list indicating that you have pushed your change.
