hi folks,

Since this came up a few times, I've now added a small example on howto
contribute to the centos sources to the bottom of this page :

git clong <repo>
git checkout c7 ( if you want centos7 sources )
(workout what the changeset is going to be, get_sources etc )
git checkout -b <newbranch>
<do your work >
git commit
<more work>
git commit
git format-patch c7 ( to compare your work set to c7 branch )

: email the .patch files to the centos-devel list here, as attachments,
ensure you have the spec file changelog updated as well in the patches.
