Dealing with mozilla.org

I’ve been dealing with some open source projects in the past, submitting patches and stuff, but dealing with mozilla.org is really a hassle. You never really know what to do at what moment. They even admit that it’s not easy… And I’m not even talking about how bugzilla is a pain in the ass.

But this is the first time I’ve been asked to actually find a submitter myself.

I already sent patches that actually did land in the CVS without me requesting anything. So what’s the difference ? That it’s a feature request instead of a bug ?

What about my other patches ?

    Seeing as you’ve got a solid patch history I’d be surprised if you were turned down if you mailed gerv@mozilla.org and asked for checkin rights. That would save you from the usual pantomime that other occasional submitters go through to get things landed.
