Hi all,

What's the "standard" to change stuffs under that dirs?  I plan to
patch libpcap-0.9/pcap.h and drop libpcap-0.9/pcap-bpf.h
Just commit to master as you like.

I'll follow up with detailed contrib/ instructions tomorrow.

Basically:  local changes just get committed to master, new imports 
(without modifications) go to the vendor/ branch and that branch then 
gets merged into master.
Same applies to sys/contrib?
To any directory which has a vendor branch (crypto/ for instance).  There 
are several directories which have been inherited from freebsd.  These 
don't have vendor branches and don't need "special" treatment until we 
replace them by pristine vendor imports.
