This contribution process is in the process of being replaced and should be used strictly on an interim basis. Please see:
With oi-build, we have tried to make the contribution process as simple as possible. To do this, we leverage the free public Mercurial hosting service, BitBucket.
The process consists of:
A member of the illumos-userland commit team will review your changeset. If we feel it needs work, we'll provide assistance. When it's ready to be integrated, we'll pull it into illumos-userland.
The issue number in 1 above serves as a way of tracking commits easily. When mailing userland@ with a request for a code review, please use the subject "1234 issue-subject", eg "1273 Update rdesktop to 1.7.0".
When committing with mercurial, you MUST commit using this format. Please see our commit history to see how this looks in reality.
