This will (hopefully) be my first time submitting a merge request to an
existing package (p4) within the AUR. The trouble I am having, it that
it is unclear, for me, how this process should work.
Reading the wiki page on this mentions that it can be done. I have a
local copy of the updated PKGBUILD file, verified that it works via
makepkg --source and installs correctly via pacman. I have followed the
Arch Package Standards and everything looks to be in order.
The trouble I am having is _how_ to submit the request via the AUR
website. The wiki briefly alludes that I should:
1) Submit my version of the changes as a *new* package. For example:
upload p4-abrenner as a new package on the submit page
2) Then go ahead to the original package page, p4, and select the
File Request link?
Is this correct? If not, what fundamental concept am I missing?
Thank you in advanced for your help,
