First of all, welcome to the developers club! ;-) It's great that you
want to contribute.

So, the workflow looks like this:

1. Go to the bug tracker https://bugs.oliverklee.com/ and create
yourself an account.

2. Enter a bug report (or feature report) about the change.

3. Fetch the up-to-date source code from the Subversion repository as
described in
. I recommend Subclipse (the Subversion plug-in for Eclipse), but any
SVN client will do.

4. Make the changes (including a line on top of the changelog).

5. Create a patch.

6. Upload the patch to the bug report (as an attachment). Set "review"
to "?" and the either the e-mail address of either Mario or me as the
reviewer. This will send a code review request. (Please use the e-mail
addresses as listed in the bug tracker.)

7. The reviewer (Mario or me) will have a look at your patch an then
either request some modifications (go back to step 4) or check it in.

If you have any questions, please just ask!

Best regards,
