Policies for Attribution

Patches Commited to SVN

  • The commiter of the patch SHOULD attribute it in svn commit message.
  • Someone WILL attribute the patch in the changelog. (the one in with the code, not the one svn keeps)
  • Unless it is a huge change, do not expect attribution in the form of a comment in the code.
  • If you feel that something was improperly attributed, make a request on the mailing list to get it fixed.
    • When making such a request to the mailing list, please be sure to include a reference & details to the exact checkin(s) in question.
