I'm usually very glad about contributions. To make the process for both parties as effective and as carefree as possible, please see the following hints: * Don't send multi megabyte mails without asking first. * Send diffs if possible and state the version number of the sources against which the diffs have been made. You can also send sources, but this means that I will have to make the diffs, which is more work for me. * Be sure to change the correct files: Many files are generated and not original sources. This is especially true for the documentation (don't send me changed HTML files) and for the standard linker configurations (don't send me changed xxx.inc files). * To avoid frustration, before doing really large changes, I would suggest asking if these changes are ok. Assume that you spent weeks coding some sort of library, just to find out that I've added similar code a few days ago. Or assume that the structure has changed, so your changes won't apply without large problems. * Please add a statement that your changes are covered by the same copyright as the libraries (see http://www.cc65.org/#PatchPolicy). * Send the changes by personal mail (not to the list), especially if they are larger. > Uz: should i send you an update? > > btw: the documentation is generated from sgml-code. Isn't it possible to "include" > all .cfg-files? I think, I will check if it's possible to include the config files somehow. If necessary, I can add a separate perl preprocessing pass. Including the files will solve the problem once and forever, so it's worth the additional effort:-) If you have made other changes than updating the builtin config files, I would be glad to hear about them.
