Committing

After you have finished your changes, it is time to save your work back to pkg-gnome’s Subversion repository.

If you have commit access

It is time to commit! For this we use the debcommit command from the devscripts package. It will generate a commit message based on the entries you just added to debian/changelog, and then commit your changes.

If you are on the IRC channel, you will notice that the CIA bot blurts out a summary of your commit. The full changes will also be mailed to the pkg-gnome-commits mailing list.

If you don’t have commit access

Not a problem! Run svn diff to have subversion output your changes in patch format. Please mail the output to the bug tracking system so that it can be reviewed and incorporated.
