Once we can submit patches against Mustang builds, what is the expected turnaround time between us submitting a patch and it making it into the subsequent build? I am expecting we would be exchanging "gnu diff" format files or did you guys have something else in mind?

Please share your thoughts with us on how you expect this to work.

We will do our best to keep the turnaround time to
a minimum. Ofcourse, we have to submit the code to
our internal process of reviews and testing before
it is integrated.

It looks like the best diff format is the GNU "unified" diff format. Internally, we would probably create
a "webrev" out of it for our own review process and
checkin to individual SCCS workspaces.
