When providing patches for the Castor project, it is appreciated if time is taken to update the documenting files about the changes made. For easy reference, here is a list of steps that can be followed when creating a patch:

  1. Make the necessary changes (to source code or documentation) for the patch
  2. Update src/doc/release-notes.xml
  3. Update src/etc/CHANGELOG
  4. For documentation updates, edit src/doc/changes.xml
  5. Finally, create a unified patch of the src directory
  6. Attach patch to a Jira issue for review
