okay19Once a bug has been fixed on a local branch, should I attach a patch to the bug in Launchpad or submit a merge proposal to the original package?22:27
tarpmanokay19: either works. whether one is better than the other probably depends on what the maintainer of that package prefers22:28
tarpmanokay19: out of curiosity, which package are we taking about?22:28
okay19tarpman: apt, specifically bug 130965822:29
ubot5`bug 1309658 in apt (Ubuntu) "apt.conf man page should indicate # is also used for comments" [Medium,Triaged] https://launchpad.net/bugs/130965822:29
okay19Also, should merge proposals contain a patch file or modify the source directly?22:47
tarpmanokay19: that also depends on the package ;) in the case of your specific bug, I'd suggest attaching your patch to the bug: it looks to me like it's more likely to be integrated into apt upstream directly than to be carried as an ubuntu-specific change22:50
tarpmanokay19: as far as a merge proposal, https://code.launchpad.net/apt/+activereviews has a couple of existing ones you could use as examples22:51
