Changes should be presented in the form of input to the patch command.
The patch should be created by using the cvs diff -u command. It is recommended that you submit patches against the latest CVS version of OpenJMS in order to avoid conflicts. This will also ensure that you are not submitting a patch for a problem that has already been resolved.
cvs diff -u Foo.java >> patch.txt
All patches necessary to address an action item should be concatenated within a single patch file. If later modification to the patch proves necessary, the entire new patch should be attached and not just the difference between the two patches.
