Context English State
If any changes are required for the world to build with the new sources, make them now — and test until you are satisfied that everything build and runs correctly.
Now, you are ready to commit. Make sure you get everything in one go. Ideally, you would have done all steps in a clean tree, in which case you can just commit from the top of that tree. That is the best way to avoid surprises. If you do it properly, the tree will move atomically from a consistent state with the old code to a consistent state with the new code.
Encumbered Files
It might occasionally be necessary to include an encumbered file in the FreeBSD source tree. For example, if a device requires a small piece of binary code to be loaded to it before the device will operate, and we do not have the source to that code, then the binary file is said to be encumbered. The following policies apply to including encumbered files in the FreeBSD source tree.
Any file which is interpreted or executed by the system CPU(s) and not in source format is encumbered.
Any file with a license more restrictive than BSD or GNU is encumbered.
A file which contains downloadable binary data for use by the hardware is not encumbered, unless (1) or (2) apply to it. It must be stored in an architecture neutral ASCII format (file2c or uuencoding is recommended).
Any encumbered file requires specific approval from the <link xlink:href="@@URL_RELPREFIX@@/administration.html#t-core">Core Team</link> before it is added to the repository.
Encumbered files go in <filename>src/contrib</filename> or <filename>src/sys/contrib</filename>.
The entire module should be kept together. There is no point in splitting it, unless there is code-sharing with non-encumbered code.
