I'd like to get involved with the development of AspectJ, but I'm a
little concerned about how to go about sending patches etc.
I work on Ant (as a contributer, not hallowed committer status!), and
the rules for submitting patches are well-laid out and easy to follow.
For AspectJ, there are fewer if any rules/guidelines and I certainly
don't want to try to contribute in a manner that would cause grief to
Patches have to be submitted in unified format
Patches to bugs are uploaded to bugzilla under the relevant bug
Standard Java code style guidelines (brace at end of line etc)
Would I be able to submit a general patch to the dev list for something
like a small refactoring? Do all patches have to have a unit test?
What style of unit test do you deem acceptable (Junit, Jmock etc)?
For ant, most of the bugs are owned by "dev@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx", looking at
the AspectJ bugzilla database, it seems as if all bugs are owned by core
developers. Does this mean that writing a patch that addresses one of
these bugs wouldn't be welcomed?
Just some questions
