Dear R developers,

is there a preferred format or strategy for making a patch to
contribute to a package that is maintained by R-core?  Berwin Turlach
and I have written a very minor extension to lmeControl to allow it to
pass an argument to nlminb for the maximum number of evaluations of
the objective function.  I've edited the nlme/R/lme.R and
nlme/man/lmeControl.Rd files.  I can diff the files, but the options
seem numerous.  I haven't been able to find any hinst on the preferred
approach.  Any advice would be welcomed.
