The patches maintainers prefer receiving download URIs also along with the patches. Even if you include a URI, please attach the patch along with your submission for the archives. Please gzip or bzip2 the patches so that it is easy for people to download the patches directly from the list archives. At the same time it saves some bandwidth. The patches will be gunziped or bunzip2ed before uploading so that they can be viewed online.</p>
