I note that posting a patch to the developers' list is generally
viweed as a request to discuss the patch.  If you actually would
like to contribute a patch for an issue, you must submit it
using the Issue Tracking System.  Don't submit "super" patches,
one issue per patch. See <http://www.openldap.org/devel/contributing.html>.

The main reason for using the Issue Tracking System over a discussion
list for submissions is that things often get lost in lists (especially
when the list or key developers are busy).
