Preparing your patch for submission

The quvi project uses git for SCM. You can find the repositories here.


The git-produced patches are preferred because:

  • They contain everything relevant (e.g. the contributor, the message)
  • They are easy to generate, email and commit

Sign-off your patch

Each commit message of a patch must end to:

Signed-off-by: Name <email>

Indicating that you wrote the code and/or have the right to pass it on as a Free Software patch. With git, you can use the ‘-s’ switch to do this. It is understood by a number of different git commands.

  • git-send-email – Felipe Contreras has written a guide on how to use this command effectively
