Hi Jensen,

You need to add the source file name to the lists of sources to
compile the desired library, a file named like
'libraryname.dll.sources'. In this specific case the file you need to
change is:


I've seen that you are surrounded your source with the needed #ifdef.

For us to accept your patch you also need to send a changelog entry
for it, and it would be better to send it as a diff file ('svn diff'
on mcs/class/System/ should do the trick, and contain the changes to
Changelog, System.dll.sources and your new DecompressionMethods.cs).

Unit tests for enumerations, AFAIK, aren't mandatory, but probably
some is missing for the method that would use the enumeration
(directly as a parameter, or contained in some field of a class/struct
that is passed to it or contains the method).

I tried to give a short overview, but the mandatory references are:
