    2121The following pages describe the process of making a change to GHC and contributing it back.  For small changes you can just `darcs send`, but for larger changes it helps a great deal if the patch is in a form that we can review quickly and use without too much extra work.

    26 Note that, largely due to performance issues in darcs 1.*, we currently avoid applying patches with conflicts to GHC, and its associated repositories. If you find that you have a conflict in a patch that you want to send or apply, please first unrecord and re-record (or amend-record) it so that the conflict is removed.
