this patch is a diff against matplotlib-svn-trunk and you need a working copy
of this to incorporate the patch automatically (instead of changing the lines
by hand). The patch was generated using
svn diff <filename> > <name>.patch
You can apply this patch to your working copy of matplotlibs svn by calling
patch -i <name>.patch -p0
patch -i axes_grid_for_major_and_minor_ticks.patch -p0
in the folder of your working copy or allpying it to a single file
patch lib/matplotlib/axes.py axes_grid_for_major_and_minor_ticks.patch
