Comment: Provide your work as patches and link to a tarball (Score 1) 162

If it is a SourceForge page or similar alowing for user submissions, then submit patches for each part of your work, and in the description for each give a link to a complete tarball of the source including your work.

This allows for the maintainer to easily pickup your changes, plus future users to locate your changes before they get merged upstream.

The relative importance of files depends on their cost in terms of the human effort needed to regenerate them. -- T.A. Dolotta
