Roman & Pat, I spent quite a bit of time fiddling round with git-bz and after downloading it, configuring it, and trying to use it to send in the differences from checking my tutorial into git (local check out / check in *seems* OK), I have come to the conclusion that this is probably not what you guys are using because it sure seems to be - broken. After trying to send in a patch with git-bz it told me that I did not seem to be logged into bugzilla.gnome.org in firefox - I am. It does not seem to be able to read the cookies (Firefox V22 on Fedora).
Is there a set of instructions written down anywhere that indicates what format and method someone should use to send in changes, updates and new content like a tutorial? I did format the tutorial into web format and do a checkout / check in into the repository, but not being able to get any farther with it is beginning to take a lot of time. The files I am trying to check in are in a share (should be easy to download) at: https://spideroak.com/browse/share/Stephen_Kiel_Pictures/Stephen_Kiel_Gimp_Tutorial I would appreciate any help you could give me. I will be on the road for about a week, so I may be slow getting back to you.
