The preferred way to submit a patch is via Launchpad merge requests.

Launchpad merge requests

Once you have a Launchpad account, here's how to clone the main repository and then push a personal branch to Launchpad:

git clone
cd libravatar
git remote add francois git+ssh://
git checkout -b test
(commit some changes)
git push -u francois test

(In this example, my username is fmarier, my branch name is test and the git remote for my personal repo is francois.)

Once you have done that, your repository will be shown in the list of libravatar repositories and clicking on it will take you to the list of branches it contains.

To submit a merge request, click on the branch name and then click the "Propose for merging" button.

Enter the following information:

  • Target repository: ~libravatar/libravatar/+git/libravatar
  • Target branch: master

before clicking "Propose merge". This will take you to your newly-created merge request.

Other ways to submit a patch

If the above doesn't work for you, here are other ways to contribute your patch:

  1. Attach it to the relevant bug on the tracker (create a new bug if you need to)
  2. Submit a pull request on Github

Of course, if you need any help, give us a shout!
