Hi Malcolm,

It's great that you are going to contribute!  Please make your patches
against trunk.

2.2 is fairly old at this point.  It hasn't been the focus of
development in more than a year.

We don't use github or pull requests.

Check the section on http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/HowToContribute
that talks about "Contributing your work".  Excerpt:
"Finally, patches should be attached to an issue report in Jira via
the Attach File link on the issue's Jira. Please add a comment that
asks for a code review following our code review checklist. Please
note that the attachment should be granted license to ASF for
inclusion in ASF works (as per the Apache License ยง5)."

As this says, you attach the patch file to a JIRA that you have
created, and then hit "submit patch."

I don't think a branch is required for this work since it is just
build fixes, right?
