Yes you made a pull request but you need to at least refer to that in the JIRA ticket.

Committers for the most part (like you I assume) do this in their own free time so you want
to make it easy for them, providing a patch to apply in SVN is the simplest way to apply changes.
The more work involved in applying a change means the less likely it will happen. Yes I could
look up your github username, see that your've made a pull request, generate the patch myself
and then apply to SVN but that's a fair of work and more importantly other people don't get
to see and review the patch in JIRA.

Don't get me wrong I like git but for now we have to deal with SVN so please try and make
it easy for people to commit your changes - IMO providing a patch file does that.

Until we move to 100% to GIt I think this is be the way we need to work. Feel free to try
and convince me otherwise.

Yes but IMO a patch is easier to apply and more visible in JIRA.

We may get more contributes via pull requests but less of them applied is the way I see it.
