Hi there. I wrote a patch to add a "Sum" column to the Service Response
Time window which I've found useful in some customer work. I've reviewed
§ 3.9 "Contribute your changes" in the Developer's Guide and I didn't
find any notes about whether or not mailing list discussion is required,
which is common in other projects. Does there need to be a discussion on
this mailing list before or after submitting a patch to Gerrit? I've
received internal IBM legal approval to contribute to Wireshark.

Feel free to submit the patch to Gerrit.

Mailing list discussions re a patch are not normally needed.
