Everything else belongs to the Redis Google Group. PLEASE DO NOT POST GENERAL QUESTIONS that are not about bugs or suspected bugs in the Github issues system. We'll be very happy to help you and provide all the support in the Redis Google Group. Redis Google Group address: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/redis-db # How to provide a patch for a new feature 1. Drop a message to the Redis Google Group with a proposal of semantics/API. 2. If in steps 1 you get an acknowledge from the project leaders, use the following procedure to submit a patch: a.

Initiate a pull request on github ( http://help.github.com/send-pull-requests/ ) e. Done :) Thanks!
