1 Contributing to MIT Kerberos
6 If you are planning to contribute a substantial amount of work, please
7 ensure that you have a discussion about the design on the
8 firstname.lastname@example.org list. Some changes may require coordination with
9 standards groups. For example, interface changes and extensions for
10 the GSS-API should be discussed in the IETF KITTEN Working Group.
15 Please follow the guidelines in doc/coding-style for new code. For
16 existing code, please preserve its existing indentation and brace
17 conventions. These existing conventions usually resemble the
18 guidelines in doc/coding-style. Exceptions to the style in
19 doc/coding-style are usually large past contributions or imports from
20 other parties. These include (not an exhaustive list):
33 We prefer patches in either unified or context diff format (diff -u or
34 diff -c). As is usual practice, please specify the original file
35 before the modified file on the diff command line. It's also useful
36 to perform the diff from the top level of the tree, e.g.,
38 diff -ur src.orig src
40 It's even more useful if you use our anonymous Subversion repository
45 and use "svn diff" (or "svk diff" if you prefer to use SVK) to
46 generate your patches.
48 It is much easier for us to integrate patches which are generated
49 against current code on the trunk. Please ensure that your source
50 tree is up-to-date before generating your patch.
55 If you are submitting substantial quantities of new code, or are
56 substantially modifying existing code, please be clear about the
57 copyright status of your contributions. Note that if your
58 contribution was created in the course of your employment, your
59 employer may own copyright in your contribution.
61 We prefer that MIT receives the ownership of the contributions, but
62 will generally accept contributed code with copyright owned by other
63 parties provided that the license conditions are substantially
64 identical to the existing license on the MIT krb5 code.
66 Appropriate copyright notices and license terms should be added to new
67 or changed files, unless the contributed code is being assigned to the
68 already-listed copyright holder in the file, or the contribution is
69 being released to the public domain. Please make sure that the
70 year in the copyright statement is kept up-to-date.
