Patches to OpenAMQ
We are very happy to get patches to OpenAMQ:
- We accept patches in plain text format, not archives;
- You must be the copyright holder for the patch;
- All patches must be licensed under the MIT license so that we can repackage the code in our commercially-licensed products;
- We reserve the right to reject, modify, or rewrite patches as we see fit.
How to submit a patch
Patches should be in a standard patchfile format.
- Create a thread in the 'submit patch' forum;
- Insert your MIT license text (cut and paste from example below) in a code block;
- Insert your patch in a [[code]] block;
- Add commentary and explanations as you see fit;
- Save your posting;
- Send an email to openamq-dev announcing your patch.
- All contributors will be listed in a single copyright notice that will be included with the source code.
- Copyright notices will not be inserted into individual files for technical reasons (most of the code is generated).
