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

by Thunderbear (#28995873) Attached to: Contributing To a Project With a Reclusive Maintainer?

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.

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.

Working...
