How to submit patches for newlib?
Sat Apr 15 00:10:00 GMT 2000
some time ago (25 Mar) I sent a patch to this mailing list, which
removes some warnings - some of which are real bugs, like this in
if (_double || flags & ALT == 0)
which should be:
if (_double || (flags & ALT) == 0)
but which really means this in C:
if (_double || flags & (ALT == 0))
and since ALT is defined as 0x001, (ALT == 0) is false and it is
For a few other similar things, please look at the patch in the
mailing list archive. These warnings were reported by a recent
gcc snapshot (which BTW is still called "egcs" in the archive -
is this correct?).
Now, I haven't seen any response to my patch, and any fixes from
it integrated in newlib CVS tree. So I guess I did something wrong -
please tell me what is the correct way to submit patches to newlib,
so that they have a chance of being accepted? Do I really need
a copyright assignment for simple fixes like this?
