[Evolution-hackers] Patch Review Mode Guideline Update

(Just some updates to the maintainers list and a pointer to the proper
patch edicate).

Starting Tuesday July 6th, 2004 at noon EST, patch review mode will be
in effect:

* Every patch will be sent to evolution-patches ximian com and conform
to the guidelines at http://www.gnome.org/projects/evolution/patch.shtml

* Every patch will have to be on the list for at least 24 hours before
being committed. A week-end (Saturday+Sunday) counts as a single 
  24-hour day. [1]

* Core maintainers are required to give their opinion on the bug in the
  24 hour period.

* Core maintainers are defined as follows:

                Chris Toshok <toshok ximian com>
		Hans Petter Jennson <hpj ximan com>

                JP Rosevear <jpr ximian com>
                Rodrigo Moya <rodrigo ximian com>

                Radek Doulik <rodo ximian com>
                Larry Ewing <lewing ximian com>

                Jeffrey Stedfast <fejj ximian com>
                Michael Zucchi <notzed ximian com>

	Groupwise (in EDS):
		Sivaiah N <snallagatla novell com>
		Harish Krishnaswamy <kharish novell com>

                JP Rosevear <jpr ximian com>
                Michael Zucchi <notzed ximian com>

		Any of the maintainers listed above

* Once the patch has been committed, it is repsonsibility of the person
who commits to:

        - Close the corresponding bug on Bugzilla.

        - Write to the mailing list, replying to the original message
          containing the patch to inform the other hackers that the
          patch has been committed.

[1] Note the main important change from previous releases is that not
even core maintainers can commit with out approval from another core
maintainer even after 24 hours.
