you can send the patch here or you can post it to the patch tracker on
our sf project page. basically it works thusly: anyone of us will commit
a patch fixing a bug. a patch adding a feature though will be directed
to the attention of whoever is handling that body of code. thus icq for
instance, being handled by oscar (libfaim) will go to kingant, and a new
msn patch to chipx86.
don't work with the icq prpl code, that's the old protocol that the
servers don't really support now. work towards icq within the framework
of libfaim (the src/protocols/oscar directory).
and as chipx86 said, feel free to ask questions.
