Committing patches to the Derby Subversion Repository

Based on a previous document by Oyvind Bakksjo, here are a set of notes to guide Derby committers through the low-level mechanics of committing a change to Derby. These notes are best read within the larger context of the DerbyCommitProcess.

Committing contributions from others is not as straightforward as one might think. This mainly stems from the fact that there is an svn diff command, but there is no svn patch command. There are a number of things to remember; if not done carefully, you might end up doing partial commits that may break the build. This page attempts to give a recipe for safely committing code contributions.
