Note that you may actually be violating licensing terms, as RC3 source 
code distribution is still governed by the same rules as the beta 
versions; among others, these demand that the respective source code 
"may not be re-distributed without the written permission of Persistence 
of Vision Raytracer Pty. Ltd." (see the header of virtually any POV-Ray 
3.7.0.RC3 source file).

While I personally would be inclined to welcome development of patches 
to Version 3.7 even as it is now (Release Candidate stage), and I'd 
guess that the other dev team members feel the same, Persistence of 
Vision Raytracer Pty. Ltd. (despite being owned and led by some dev team 
members) might have reason to insist on the formal requirement of 
obtaining written permission.

(With the 3.7 release proper things will get a lot easier again.)
