This document describes the process used by the p2 team to contribute bug fixes to a maintenance stream.
- Create a new bug as clone of the original one
- Set the target milestone
- Get consent from component lead (this can happen before or while the patch is written)
- Attach the patch (note that the patch in the maintenance stream does not have to be the same one than in HEAD). It is also a good practice to have released in HEAD the changes before putting it in the M build.
- Get patch reviewed
- Release patch
- Tag (or get someone to tag)
