What is the procedure for submitting patches (for Axis)?

  1. Get latest Axis code from SVN ("svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/webservices/axis/java axis")

  2. Make your changes
  3. Run "ant clean all-tests" from the root directory (to ensure that the patch does not break any existing tests)
  4. Run "svn diff" from the root directory (save output in say "diff.txt")
  5. Create a zip file with "diff.txt" and other new files (if any).
  6. Create a new bug report in JIRA http://issues.apache.org/jira (if there isn't one already).

  7. Use the attachment link in the bugzilla bug entry to upload the zip file. You can only do this after the report is created.
  8. New tests and documentation help a lot. The docs to show your patch works, the tests for others to use it.
  9. Participate in the axis-dev mail list to make sure your patch doesn't get forgotten.
