If your patch is targeted for 19.11 release, you need to send out your V1 patch
before proposal deadline 9/6, you can check the roadmap in http://core.dpdk.org/roadmap/.

In most of cases, you should clone the main tree (git clone http://dpdk.org/git/dpdk)  
as the code base, and regularly rebase your patchset if you have new versions.
