Submit a Patch
Have you found a bug and fixed it? Or have you developed a new feature that makes WiiMC even better? If so, we want to hear from you! Submit your patches to our Tracker and we will review your submission. If we like it, we’ll add it to the codebase. You may also contact our team via the IRC Channel to discuss your ideas. Please note that you must be logged on to submit a ticket. If you don’t have a login, you can register here.
Once you’ve submitted your patch, please be patient and wait for our feedback. We’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
- Always make patches for Subversion HEAD. We do not accept patches for releases or outdated Subversion revisions.
- Test your patch. Make sure it works and doesn’t break any other features.
- If you make independent changes, try to submit them as separate patches to our tracker. Likewise, if your patch is very big, try splitting it into several self-contained pieces. Each part can then be reviewed and committed separately. Logical units should stay together, though, i.e. do not send a patch for every file or directory you change.
- We prefer that you upload your patch directly to the tracker, rather than sending it via FTP.
- Do not immediately ask for Subversion write access. Once you have contributed a few acceptable patches, or if you are interested in joining the WiiMC development team, we will consider granting you Subversion write access.
- If you send a modified or updated version of your patch, please resend the complete patch. Please always resend patches as replies to the original mail to keep the thread with the discussion together.
