I would just open a new pull request. Thanks for the help Alex!

Subject: [mapserver-dev] Contributing to MapServer


While working on a project that will convert mapfiles to xmlmapfiles (https://github.com/10000maps/map2xml) I have discovered problems in the mapfile.xsd file included with mapserver. The errors are instances where mapfiles that were working are considered invalid by the xsd when run with xmllint.

On github I have forked mapserver and made a branch with the changes (https://github.com/alexwells55/mapserver/compare/mapserver:master...improvedxsd).

I would like to contribute the improvements to the mapserver project, but am unsure how to go about it. Previously I submitted a pull request with only some of the changes.  It got marked as failed, but I couldn't figure out why (I've never used Jenkins before). I closed that request because I thought I might as well submit all the changes to the mapfile.xsd file at once.

Should I open a new Pull Request? or email a patch to someone? or something else?
