Hi all,

is there a guideline or manual how to send a patch to the qemu mailing list? It seems as if this can be done somehow automagically using the local git repository, but I didn't find a tool to do that.


Best regards,


Hi Erik,

if you use git for sending, you don't risk that your mailer destroys the format of your patch. I usually use these commands to send a single patch from the QEMU source directory:

# Create the patch file (name depends on the subject line of your patch).
    git format-patch HEAD^
    # Check the patch (fix any issues which were found).
    scripts/checkpatch.pl 0001-*
    # Get the maintainer who is responsible (there is not always one).
    scripts/get_maintainer.pl 0001-*
    # Send the patch.
git send-email --to address@hidden --to "n.n <address@hidden>" 0001-*

Please read also http://wiki.qemu.org/Contribute/SubmitAPatch.
