Re: Need to add fs shim to use QFS

Hi Eli,

I have attached two patches and submitted them as well.

Will the integration engine automatically process 'branch-1' patch or
should I do anything spcific for released versions?

I set the following for the "Fix versions" field upon patch submission:
1.0.2, 1.0.3, 0.23.3, 2.0.0-alpha, 2.0.1-alpha and 3.0.0. Please let me
know if its allright.

Thanks,
- Thilee
