Your patch should be as small as possible to fix the issue / enhancement.

Technically, you can submit anything you'd like. /Successful/ patches

0. Not contain any tab characters :)
1. Solve the problem in the bug
2. Include any appropriate documentation (new configuration,
   notes about behavior, etc.)
3. Include unit test cases if appropriate
4. Not include additional changes (code formatting, etc.)
5. Not break anything else :)

Thanks for your contribution(s),
