Patch - Changes to spinboxes' behaviour

Bug Description

I've created three patches:

In options windows, I think the plus and minus signs should be inverted.
Usually is common to have minus on left side, and plus on the right

I think that the --/++ buttons should alway be active and if adding/removing 10 brings the value over/under the minimum/maximum, the value should stick to the limits. They will work like a fast-forward options.

Replaced "0 days" for replays with "never". Sorry, but no idea if other than adding the value I have to set the word to be translatable somewhere.

Just a question: is correct to add patches like bugs or should I post them on forums?

hey Angelo,

Contributions is always highly welcome! But adding patches to the bug-tracker or the forum has some major drawbacks. It is way easier to see what you did and to apply your changes, if you upload them to a branch on launchpad. Then you can add a merge request and someone can have a look and give you feedback or merge your changes to trunk.

We have a wikipage trying to describe how you use bzr :)

Hi, and thanks for your suggestions. The preferred workflow is to create a branch, push it to launchpad, and then create a merge request from the branchpage. This will show a colored diff of your changes and allow people to post comments on the review. In this case you might push the patches to different branches to keep them separated, as they seem to deal with different issues.

See and for how to do this.

thanks aber, thank hjd, I will now read the suggested link and try to create one branch for every patch.

Hi people, I tried. I put all my goodwillness but found that this bzr is really slow (at least for me - 20 mins just to branch). Also at moment my pc is almost full, so I found difficult to create a new branch.
I prefer git, but I know this topic has already been discussed in the past - just my personal opinion...

Anyway, I will be very happy if you can apply the patches without going through the preferred workflow...

I've tested all 3 branches and fully support merging this.
This makes the option window more consistent, i never liked the + left/ - right
