Hi Fabrizio,

The best thing to do is to open an Enhancement bug in bugs.wireshark.org and attach your patch there. That way it won't get lost in the mailinglist and can discussions be tracked with the relevant code.

Thanks for your reply.
I would like to submit a patch to the existing RTPS & RTPS2 packet dissectors available on the development trunk.
See attached patch file.
This patch apply to the latest version that I took just now from the trunk of the SVN repository. It contains various fixes and support to the latest features of the RTPS protocol (version 2.1).
Let me know if there are any problems integrating it.

    Hi Fabrizio,

    The new dissectors are already in the right place. You'll have to
    that once Wireshark 1.0 went out the door it is considered stable.
    That means no
    new or changed features, just bug fixes go in. All new development,
    new features
    etc go into the development tree (where rtps[2].c also live), hence will
    automatically be included in the upcoming stable release (1.2) due
    in June this
    Have a look at http://wiki.wireshark.org/Development/ReleaseNumbers and
    http://wiki.wireshark.org/Development/Roadmap to see what's going on.
