Patch Submission Guidelines

General model Major.Minor.Micro (1.3.6, 1.4.0,1.5.0SVN)

Basic Steps noted here

As of PostGIS 1.4 -- we will no longer be releasing additional functions to micro releases.

Micro releases will be focused primarily on bug fixes and secondly speed enhancements to existing functions.

PostGIS 2.0 and below will be critical bug and security fixes.

This means that only currently documented functions for PostGIS 2.0.0 are all you will see in 2.0.4

Bug fixes to existing functions go into latest micro release.

New functions submitted will have to go into the next release which is currently (PostGIS 2.2) (always trunk branch).

New functions/features that require on disk structural changes will go into next major release (PostGIS 3.0).
