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.
