How to get my patches merged upstream?


Konstantin Aladyshev
 

Hello!

I'm experiencing some difficulties in getting maintainers' attention
to my EDKII patches.

Some of the patches I've created at the end of july, now it is the end
of september, so I'm a little bit worried that these patches were lost
in the mailing list.

I don't want to be rude, I respect maintainers time, I'm just trying
to understand if my development process is correct.
When I send my patches I just grab appropriate email's from the
https://github.com/tianocore/edk2/blob/master/Maintainers.txt and git
send-email to them and to the devel@edk2.groups.io
Do I need to do something more? Maybe I need to create an issue on
https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/ first? Can you please give me some
advice?

Current list of my unmerged patches can be found at the following link:
https://github.com/tianocore/edk2/pull/3111

Best regards,
Konstantin Aladyshev

You followed the correct process. I've found that patches _do_ sometimes just get ignored/forgotten, and months later I've had to follow up about them.
I'm hoping the move to GitHub Pull Requests will significantly improve this.
