The Broken Hut
Working my way up to a full-size building
Reducing the barrier to contributing

It just took me three days to commit a couple of patches to [xmonad] (http://xmonad.org/) because

  1. it wasn’t obvious what I should commit. My change was miniscule when it was just a change to the mainline code, but substantiall larger as a “contributed plugin”. There was no mention of when one would be preferred over the other. So I did both.

  2. it wasn’t obvious where I should commit. In the end I had to sign up for the development mailing list in order to forward my patches on.

Surely there’s a better way than this?

I would say you should have gone in #xmonad and asked them as they're very helpful, but I don't think that is the kind of answer you're looking for.
