+The message should contain an inlined patch against the current
+development branch (i.e., the master branch of
+git://w1.fi/hostap.git). Please make sure the software you use for
+sending the patch does not corrupt whitespace. If that cannot be fixed
+for some reason, it is better to include an attached version of the
+patch file than just send a whitespace damaged version in the message
+The patches should be separate logical changes rather than doing
+everything in a single patch. In other words, please keep cleanup, new
+features, and bug fixes all in their own patches. Each patch needs a
+commit log that describes the changes (what the changes fix, what
+functionality is added, why the changes are useful, etc.).
+Please try to follow the coding style used in the project.
+In general, the best way of generating a suitable formatted patch file
+is by committing the changes to a cloned git repository and using git
+format-patch. The patch can then be sent, e.g., with git send-email.
