I, for one, would appreciate a detailed description of which files
had to be modified and (possibly) why.  I just looked in
/src/sys/arch/vax/vax and see some files changed in the past few
days, but my inability to access the previous version makes it hard
for me to track the detailed technical changes.

Is it possible that I'm misinterpreting the range of "on-topic" subjects
for the port-vax mailing list?  I originally subscribed in a hope that
it would contain some detailed discussion of what was being changed
and why, with the hope that I could join in the development process.
But in the past half-year the number of such technical discussions
on port-vax can be counted on one hand...

Another naive question: suppose I do track down a bug and fix it.
How do my fixes get merged back into the "official" sources?  Do
I e-mail them to somebody?  Is there some automated procedure
where I put them in some incoming directory at and
they get automagically merged into the NetBSD-current sources?
