Title:How do I submit a patch for the Nagios daemon, CGIs, and/or documentation?
FAQ ID:F0096

Description:

User would like to know what the procedure is for submitting patches for Nagios.

 

Solution:

I'd prefer that patches be sent to the nagios-devel mailing list, as that provides a means of peer review. Sometimes I don't apply patches until the next version, so posting to the list gives other users a chance to try the patch out if they want.

Please make sure your patches are in either unified or context diff format. Use the diff command with the -U 3 or -C 3 options to accomplish this.

If at all possible, please make sure your diffs are made against the latest code from in CVS.
