How to publish patches and upgrades.

If you are capable of coming up with software you can use, and want others to be able to use it also, you probably just need a few reminders of how to cooperate with others:

1. Appropriate languages are sh, perl, C, awk. Don't expect that others will learn another language just to use your tool.

2. If the patch is a defect fix, post a copy to the newsgroup, and CC
3. If the patch is a feature/enhancement, it is better not to publish the code itself to the newsgroup.
