Sparked by this question and this comment, I'm confused to what development stuff here is on-topic and what isn't.
The FAQ says:
Development on Ubuntu.
Well, that on leaves room for wider interpretation here. My interpretation: see answer.
Others seem not to share my opinions about it and as long as you run a tool (e.g.
patch) on your Ubuntu powered machine it's already on topic.
My view and some examples in an answer. Post yours if you have another view. Feel free to use my examples. Feel free to add more examples for me to give my opinion on.
- add more, couldn't find them
