I fixed a small bug in the emulator VICE. The bug took me 3 minutes to fix and 1h to figure out how to contribute a patch using SVN ๐Ÿคฎ and SourceForge ๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿคฎ:
sourceforge.net/p/vice-emu/pat

I seriously hope they don't *really* expect a GNU ChangeLog entry as mentioned by the outdated contributor documentation that predates SourceForge.
