[XaraXtreme-dev] Have implemented a Linux port of GetMemoryStatus ("Function to find available RAM")

Hash: SHA1

I have implemented a Linux version of GetMemoryStatus, which is one of
the requested tasks on the "Unassigned tasks" page. I have a couple of
questions, though.

I'm not entirely sure as to how to proceed to submit the patch...
Should I just apply for read+write SVN access to the repository (as
per "Subversion Access Instructions")? That would seem to be the
logical course of action.

Also, regarding the licensing, the FAQ page in the website mentions:
> What we will be asking for is for some sort of license that will
> allow us to use your code in our commercial version as well, but
> will allow the original author to retain all their copyright rights.

This would imply some form of dual-licensing, then, correct? I would
release the patch under the GPL for use in the open source version,
and simultaneously under another license, specifically for the Xara
company, which allows them to use the code in the proprietary version
of the product. Is that about right? If so, what sort of license would
we talking about? Something like the BSD license, for example?
