Excellent documentation. What I'd really like to see is
"How to test patches (a guide for pmdevils)"

The only patches I've submitted are tiny one or two line changes, since I don't feel comfortable slinging more code than that around w/o a reasonable way to test it. Is there any way to test a patch other than installing a local copy of Everything2, or is the patching process mostly like coding in the dark?

who should probably know better by now....
