Hi Jan,

Thank you for working on Jami. Cool!

I copy/paste what I wrote here [1], waiting to improve the manual or
the cookbook.

The next step is to commit the changes. In this case, three commits
(one per package) seem nice. Give a look to previous commits as
example of commit message (ChangeLog format, etc.). Now, it is time to
prepare the submission:

  git format-patch --cover-letter -o patches master

this will create the 3 patches in the folder patches/ and one cover
letter. Edit the cover letter to describe what the patches are about
then submit it to the bug tracker:

  git send-email --to=address@hidden patches/0000-cover-letter.patch

Wait the answer to the bug tracker.
You should receive an email (if your .gitconfig is ok) with the bug
number. Last submit the patches:

  git send-email --to=address@hidden patches/000{1,2,3}-*

where ABCDEF is the bug number.
--8<---------------cut here---------------stop------------->8---

You can also run:

  rm patches/0000-cover-letter.patch
  git send-email --to=address@hidden patches/00*

to send all the patches to the bug number ABCDEF. Be careful to not
send twice the same patch. :-)
Then you can also send normal email to address@hidden to
discuss the patch.
And another version (say version 2) of the patch series is produced
with the git option --reroll-count=2 (in short -v2):

  git rebase -i / git amend / do your change
  git format-patch -v2
  git send-email --to=address@hidden patches/v2-000*

Note that you need to "guix install git:send-email".

Hope that helps.

All the best,
