[Xorp-users] Recent developments and patch submission

Hi all,

Regardless of the current situation with XORP, Inc., it's important that 
contributors stick to a few ground rules regarding patch submissions.

The workflow preferred is that patches intended for incorporation, 
should go to the Trac database on SourceForge in the first instance. 
This does require creating a SourceForge account. This workflow is no 
different from e.g. the Thrift project, which is hosted on Apache JIRA.

It's great that folk are discussing patches on the lists, and trying to 
get issues addressed here, but from a maintenance point of view, we 
can't really use the mailing lists as a patch queue, and some basic 
procedures do need to be followed.

This is especially important in the light of the current funding and 
organisation situation. Please do remember that any maintenance that 
happens on XORP, for the foreseeable future, will be performed on an 
unpaid volunteer basis.
