thank you very much for the answer. The changes are
- adding some constants
- adding some additional system calls

So it should be clear what the are doing and should not
affect systems not supporting SCTP.

So should I code against the 1.6.4 socket.c file or the
one in the CVS? Do I have better chances to get the stuff
into 1.6.5 when coding against the 1.6.4 version?

Best regards

I would like to extend socket.c such that guile supports also SCTP.
If I submit patches against the 1.6.4 version is it possible that
the changes are included in the 1.6.5 release? Or should I submit
patches against the CVS version? Is it still possible to include the
changes into 1.6.5?

It would depend on the nature of the changes.  For example, I'm about
to add srfi-31 to 1.6 and 1.7, but that will only involve the addition
of a new file, a new test, and some documentation, and nothing should
be affected unless you (use-modules (srfi srfi-31)).

It would defintely be a judgement call.  If the changes can be done in
such a way that it's obvious that they won't break existing build or
runtime behaviors, then that'd be fine, but it's worth mentioning that
we're very likely to err on the side of being conservative with
changes to 1.6.

Hope this helps.
