I haven't done much submitting to open source projects and I was curious--if I want to submit a patch to SVK, how should I do it, and what steps
should I take?
I have a very small change to SVK/Command/Checkout.pm; I changed the -l option so that if you use it and your depot path names are especially
long (> 30 chars, as mine tend to be :) ), you get a nicely formatted output, instead of having some of the checkout paths further right than
This is mostly just a vanity change for me, but I'd still like to put it in there. I've downloaded the source tarball from CPAN, and tried
running prove -I lib/ t, and I got 3 failed tests, but 2 of them seem to just be because I changed the format, and not actually broken. The
third (t/60patchset.t), I'm not sure on.
What should I do from here? Should I submit my patch, or try to get all test to work? Do I have to do a make install for all tests to work?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,
