This situation has come up a couple of times in the past few
weeks. The 'user contributions' page (http://www.erlang.org/user.html)
has a mechanism for adding contributions, but it doesn't really allow
for contributions to be updated by people other than the original
author. 

I can think of a few ways of handling this

  (a) Send the person modifying the module to the original author
      and get them to sort it out between themselves.

  (b) Someone here makes a decision whether the modification goes
      in or not.

Comments?

In the case of the serial driver, Johan Bevemyr is the author and you
can find his mail address in the 'serial.pub' file which came with
serial (I won't put it here in case he's worried about spam).
