Subject Re: Process for code submissions?
Date Mon, 06 Aug 2012 08:51:36 GMT
I've updated the pull request with these changes and updates to the NEWS
and CHANGES files. The note at the bottom of the THANKS file implied that
maybe I did not need to add my name, but I did it just in case. I'm
slightly wary of the git processes involved in all this, but the GitHub
diff looks good, so I hope I haven't made any mistakes. Thanks again for
your help, and please do let me know of there's anything else I should do,
