Depends on who is writing and who is reading. I hoped they were
clearer to the reader ;-)

Thansk, I think I understand the workflow, but I do not know how to do
this practically.

Let us say I first in this case write the parts for multi major modes.
I guess I then submit this to my local rep? How?

And how do I make a diff after that? Can I make the diff later on to
in a simple way?

After this I want to do the other changes to linum immediately so I
will not forget them. So I do that and submit them to my local rep. Or
should I do something else at this point?

And what if Stefan (or someone else) now says that the first part
needs some refinements and I should send a new patch? How can I handle
that now after I have submitted my first part to my local rep?
