That probably varies from committer to committer. > How can I encourage a committer to apply my patch or even LOOK at my PR? Send a note to where committers hang out, giving them the PR number and a request. > How does one get a PR removed once the bug is either gone or clearly not > going to be fixed? Same as the above. > And are cosmetic patches to -RELEASEs and -STABLE pretty much wasted at > this point? Like documentation to LINT and man page corrections and > things? That depends on how far out of sync the sources the patch is against are with -CURRENT. > I've also got a number of cosmetic patches saved up, but I'm not sure > whether to send them as patches to -RELEASE 4 or 5 or -STABLE or -CURRENT > or all of the above. Sugestions please? Submitting patches against -CURRENT is the best solution. <mike -- Mike Meyer <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> http://www.mired.org/consulting.html Independent WWW/Perforce/FreeBSD/Unix consultant, email for more information.
