Some features:

  • Simple interface

How to submit a Patch to BusTO ("pull request")

We hate GitHub so don't create pull requests in GitHub. Open your mind and follow these simple instructions:

  1. Do some small changes
  2. Install the amazing arcanist package (sudo apt install arcanist)
  3. Run arc diff inside the project directory
  4. Read the instructions


Or instead, if you are lazy, or like to get technical:

  1. Do some small changes
  2. Do some commits
  3. Generate a patch with (assuming you're keeping the branches name)
git format-patch -k --stdout origin/master..master > my-patch.diff
  1. Upload your file my-patch.diff here:


Or instead, if you are lazy:

  1. Just do your pull request in GitHub, but then don't expect to receive a present from Santa.

In any case: we love small commits with small changes!
