So, you need to grab our overlay, add some patches there and send it us.
It's mostly a set of following commands:
# first-time preparation $ git clone git://github.com/YOU-AT-GITHUB/gentoo-haskell.git $ git remote add upstream git://github.com/gentoo-haskell/gentoo-haskell.git $ git remote update # # usual workflow: # update: $ git pull --rebase upstream master # hax-in teh patch: $ git commit -m "meaningful message" # push: $ git push -f origin master # go to your github page to send pull request
--rebaseparameter allows us to avoid useless merge commits: commits are usually absolutely independent, so we like linear history.
Commit one ebuild at a time: don't modify more, than one package in single commit. It makes review easier.
Write meaningful commit messages! Look at the examples in the tree:
app-admin/haskell-updater: bump up to 184.108.40.206 (ghc-7.2 support)
If you don't like github for some reason you can send us patches as well. Just export them (or publish the tree somewhere else) and send them out to firstname.lastname@example.org:
$ git format-patch -o PATCHES upstream/master.. $ git send-email --email@example.com PATCHES/
