Subject Re: Creating branch-1
Date Tue, 02 Jun 2015 17:37:57 GMT
Ok, I've created branch-1.  I've also updated HowToContribute with 
information on what patches go where now.  Proofreaders and feedback on 
clarity are welcomed.  (At the same time I updated the page to contain 
git instructions instead of SVN, so feedback on that is good too.)
