Re: [opensuse-project] Contributors', developers' HOWTO ?

Besides, my patch was accepted upstream more than a year ago, so the

Did upstream release a new version that includes your patch already?

If yes, please point the maintainer to the new version (or send a
submitrequest that includes the new version) instead of just adding your
patch. This way avoids the need to add and maintain the patch (and
remove it later when the version update is finally done). Additionally,
the new version probably brings more fixes and new features that are not
part of your patch.

Note that I don't even know what nasm does - so please take the above as
general hint ;-)

(AJ already pointed you to some howtos, so the above should be
understandable now ;-)
