    3 ** Make sure the author(s) have a copyright assignment/disclaimer.
    4 
    5 ** Make sure the file matches the standard Emacs template (header
    6 format, copyright and license notice, etc).
    7 
    8 ** Make sure the filename does not cause the DOS port any problems (8+3).
    9 Run the 'doschk' program like this:
   10 
   11     find /path/to/emacs -print | doschk
   12 
   13 and examine the output for DOS-related problems.  The sections of
   14 output under the headings "The following files are not valid DOS file
   15 names:" and "The following resolve to the same DOS file names:" should
   16 not include any files that end up in the release tarball.
   17 
   18 ** Commit in the name of the author(s), not your own name.
   19 
   20 ** If appropriate, check that the file compiles OK and that Emacs
   21 builds fine with it.  Address any compilation warnings.
   22 
   23 ** If a major contribution, consider adding an entry to the
   24 Acknowledgments in doc/emacs/emacs.texi and ack.texi.
   25 
   26 ** If appropriate, add a short NEWS entry.
   27 
   28 ** If appropriate, update make-dist (not needed with "standard" file
   29 names, eg *.el).
