Any fixes that are pushed will have a test case pushed too
along with it. That's a "big rule". The miter line join fix
hasn't been pushed yet. It almost got lost in the email (nice
segue to one of my points below) because it didn't say PATCH.

I think the intent is that patches should NOT be sent in email,
as bugzilla is now available to track those patches so that they
don't get lost in the email and its easier to see where we are WRT
to integrating contributions.

So you should use bugzilla for submitting patches, even if you
ultimately push them. Patches already in process likely don't
need to be retrospectively added to bugzilla unless you want to
do that.
