Hi all,

First may I know the reason behind Saminda sending a patch, rather than 
directly committing the code to the svn head ? Any specific reason ?

Let me give you a hint on Apache style.
Committers have earned their committership through meritocracy.  So why 
does a committer wait for the community to review his code ? The normal 
and the obvious way is that committers commit code directly and we 
expect the committer to be disciplined in doing so, and which has been 
the case in *all* the projects *all* the time in Apache.  He must be 
self disciplined to send code with comply with the discussion went on 
the community so far.

If the community is not happy with what some one has committed, they can 
revert it.

Going with the above rules, Saminda please go ahead and commit the code, 
since you have implemented something Synapse community has agreed. Then 
community can review it, if required.
