Assuming I have patched a package in universe to fix a bug, and have
also created a package for the bugfix, where is the best place to put
it to get someone to check and upload it?

REVU?
sponsors-queue?

Assuming you just want the .diff.gz, would you want to see the source
directly patched, or would you prefer to use quilt or dpatch or the
like?

Regards

Jeff

Is your package a new upstream revision? If so, you should publish new
.diff.gz file for review, otherwise a debdiff between current Ubuntu
version and yours is fine.

If changes you introduce touch files provided upstream, adopting a patch
system is advisable, no need of it if changes are limited to debian/
directory.

For my information - for both cases:
1. in case of a new upstream version, where do I post the diff.gz?
2. otherwise, where do I post the debdiff?

Thanks!

Just for clarification: If the package you touch comes from debian, and there
is no patch system present in the debian version, please don't start to
introduce one. This will make future merges more easy (valid in both
directions).

Cheers,
Stefan.

You can file a new bug in Launchpad [1] or attach diff.gz/debdiff to
existing bug reports [2], if your patch fixes some of them.

[1] https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/packagename/+filebug
[2] https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/packagename/+bugs

So in this case, I should patch the upstream source directly?

Regards

If the package has a patch system already, please don't directly patch the
source, but use the patch system instead.

If not, please patch the source directly.

Cheers,
Stefan.
