OK - how would I go about doing that? check a change to the
web site page on the trunk? I presume that woudn't migrate to
the website until the next release. Or does "submitting a patch"
mean something different?

OK - that's just fine - but when I tried to create a branch off RC_1_34_0
I got an error. Is the error to advise me I should have been using Verson
rather than RC_1_34_0 or some other reason.

Which I presume means I'm doing something unauthorized but it doesn't say

My intention is to create a branch off the latest release, check in and test
my changes
on this branch, and then merge them into the "trunk". If there's anything
with this procedure please let me know.
