Subject Re: Pluggable Lock Framework - how to submit code enhancement?
Date Sat, 06 Nov 2004 17:55:57 GMT
Official Hi Jeff,

That sounds like something many users would appreciate.  Bugzilla is
the best way to submit your code.  Open a new 'bug' in Bugzilla, prefix
the summary line with [PATCH], and then attach your code.  This will
have to be a 2-step process: 1) open a bug, 2) attach code.  That's
just how Bugzilla works.
