bazaar development mode

NAME

bazaar development mode

NOTES

I've created a new group for Acme:SAC development.

http://groups.google.com/group/acme-sac

acme-sac@googlegroups.com

The purpose is to develop acme-sac in the open by following the bazaar development model; all code changes are submitted as patches through the list; frequent releases of tarballs; and releases of both stable and experimental trees.

Hopefully this means developers maintaining their own trees can cherry pick patches from the list. It doesn't require synchronization through source control system or membership to any project.

For example, if you maintain your own inferno-os tree and see a fix you want, you can just apply the patch from the email using gnu patch.

All that is required for someone to contribute is a download of an acme-sac tarball, a diff of their code change and email the list.
