How to Contribute New Vaults Nowdays?

Hello, I've made a simple arrival vault. I think I'd like to do more contributing of this kind, since I don't expect I'll ever be experienced enough to contribute meaningfully on DCA or GDD.

Assuming that this vault is done correctly, and I've tested it to my satisfaction at least, I'd like to ask for updated information on how to submit it. viewtopic.php?p=6197#p6197 suggests clicking "Report Issue" on Mantis and selecting, "patch" however I do not see "patch" as an option at https://crawl.develz.org/mantis/login_s ... t_page.php, which is what I get to when I click "Report Issue" on the top menu bar.

I am also interested in which types of vaults are most needed and which there are plenty of. What I've noticed in playing is that I seem to get the same few overflow altar vaults, for instance, but of course that may be by design from weighting.

You need to click through that page, selecting DCSS as the project, which will take you to the actual Report Issue page. "Patches" appears in the "Category" drop-down menu right at the top of the page.

You want "Upload: Maps and Vaults" rather than "Patches" though.

Thank you! After looking at other vault submissions to see how I ought to fill out the form I chose "Upload: Maps and Vaults" instead of "Patch" but I expect that's minor.

Heh, didn't notice you saying this here while I was over there fiddling with the form, but I figured it out anyway, thank you!

Since I probably shouldn't have buried my second question about what sorts of vaults are need and which aren't in this thread, I'll start a new thread for that.
