Subject Re: [math] Question regarding submitting patches
Date Sun, 04 Apr 2004 02:51:34 GMT
Hi Chris,

Looks like you forgot to checkout the module first.

You need to do

cvs co jakarta-commons/math

after the cvs login and CVSROOT export.

That will create a local cvs sandbox for you. Find the files that you want 
to patch in your newly created local jakarta-commons/math, make your 
changes and then run the diff from the sandbox directory where the 
modified files reside.


In addition to the CVS homepage referenced there, here is another CVS 
reference that I like:

Thanks in advance for the patches!
