This is definitely a good idea, I started one sometime ago on
http://rufus.w3.org/kaffe were I did collect and export a few patches
w.r.t. 0.9.2 .
I guess we could follow something like the Linux development model
where Tim does the official releases but where volunteers help him
by suggesting and collecting patches. Having some kind of repository
for new patches proved to be helpful.
I would volunteer to collect the patches and export them from
rufus.w3.org as long as the patch applies to clean released versions
and that I receive :
- the patch in contextual diff format. Don't try to send it by mail
since it's usually a mess to extract patches from mail, download
them to ftp://rufus.w3.org/incoming/kaffe
- Then drop me a mail with the associated description and related
Kaffe version (no 2 pages descriptions please, in that case,
upload a separate HTML page or give me a WWW link).
I just hope that it won't be too much work !
