How to port the server to a new machine in a controlled fashion.
As an exercise, I'm attempting to port the server to a new
machine, namely, the much-vaunted Be Box hat is currently sitting
on my desk. Now, it looks to be achievable, but I'd have to
make some changes to some of the networking files... name_lookup.c
The question is, how to do this in a controllable way, so that
it can be included with the standard source release? I don't want
to just hack and make a new version of the source that will have to
be separately maintained!
However, the standard method doesn't seem to give me a way
to have changed source files... it mostly appears to be done using
What's the "government approved" method? And, once it's done,
to whom should I submit the new code?
