Subject How to create a patch for forrest
Date Tue, 27 Jul 2004 10:41:46 GMT
Hello all,

please follow the steps I now describe if you like to create a patch. 
This way it will be for all us very easy to apply your patches.

1) Change your local forrest dis.

2) Then run in top level dir:
./ patch or
build.bat patch

 e.g. my forrest top level resides in /opt/apache/forrest:
thorsten@gatos:/opt/apache/forrest$ ./ patch

3) You will see:
Attach the following file to a new issue in the Forrest issue tracker:
    patch.tar.gz if you have added new files
    patch.txt if you have only modified existing files
(Please review the patch first, to ensure that you have not added extra 


Congratulations, that means you have created a patch :).

4) Then open a new issue at!default.jspa (you 
have be a register user and logged in) or add the file to a existing issue.

If you add it to an existing issue and there are more then one 
attachment it may makes sense to rename the file like e.g. 

Some tips:

* Make sure that your forrest SVN working copy
is up-to-date (svn update). 

* Keep the same text indentation as in the files that
you are working on.

* Make sure that your xml files and stylesheets are
valid xml.
