Subject: Re: [Boost-users] [Graph] how best to submit patch?

What does the patch do again?

1) check out source from sourceforge SVN (done)

Patches should probably be made against:
I'm not how SF matches against this repo.

Add specific test files to libs/graph/test. Rebuild/run all of the tests -
just type bjam. The testing framework will report any failures.

You can submit on the list. I'll review it, we'll discuss it and it will be
accepted (or not). If the patch fundamentally alters the semantics of the
concepts or default behavior of existing data structures, I probably won't
accept it since it will break existing code.
