Patch submission guidelines for Simelo's projects
== Guidelines to collaborate ==
Most of the plugins listed above are developed at [http://bitbucket.org/ Bitbucket] using Mercurial . Please, take a look at my repos list for further details. The preferred way to collaborate and prepare patches (especially if you're interested in enhancing the patch until it gets committed to the repository ''';o)''' is to create a patch queue for the repository of the plugin. You will need to be familiar with MQ extension. Please, follow the steps I mention below. I will use MacTheme repository in the example, so be aware of the fact that the process might be slightly different if your patches enhance another plugin in the list shown above.
1. Sign-in using your
Bitbucket account or
''your favorite !OpenId provider''.
1. Use your browser and load the home page of the repository
(e.g. http://bitbucket.org/olemis/trac-macos for MacTheme).
If you don't see the repository listed in there it might be
because it's hosted by Simelo's project @ Sourceforge.
So take a look at the Hg repos list
and, if this is the case , please contact me
and I'll either clone the repos at Bitbucket or create
the patch queue repository in there (but you'll need an
to commit successive versions of your patches ''';o)'''
1. Click on ''patch queue'' link on top of the web page (see
[ screenshot for details]).
1. Enter the name of the patch queue repository, a short
description and then click on ''Create patch queue button''
(see [ screenshot for details]). You'll be redirected to
the main page of your patch queue repository.
1. Type the command shown in that page in order to '''qclone'''
the new repository (see [ screenshot for details]).
1. Create and prepare some patches
(read Chapter 12
if you want to know more ''';o)''' , and push your changes
to the public repository hosted by Bitbucket.
1. Let me know of your changes.
1. If you want me to participate so as to enhance the patch
then click on ''Admin'' tab. (see [ screenshot for details])
1. Add ''olemis'' user to the writers list
(see [ screenshot for details]).
