Since the topic has been discussed somewhat on the mailing list, I
thought I would put forth my own preferences in these matters.
First of all, suggestions are always welcome. They may or may not be
accepted, but I always love hearing suggestions on improvements to
Rake (or any other library I work on).
Patches supplied with suggestions are nice gesture. If you can supply
a patch, feel free to do so. If you can include unit tests with that
patch, then that is even better. In fact, if you wish to supply unit
tests for a new feature, but no implementation, that is fine too.
In general, the lack of a patch (or unit tests) rarely have an impact
on the acceptance (or rejection) of a particular suggestion. What
they *do* impact is how quickly you might see a particular suggestion
Thanks to everyone who participates in the Rake discussions.
