You shall ensure that your changes are compatible with the master
development tree. If you don't and they end up being incompatible, you will
only have your tears left to cry as your patch gets ignored. So that this
does not happen, I can only STRONGLY recommend you always develop on the
master tree _first_.

If the UI does not work, then test with the command line VLC, or with the
HTTP interface, or through a custom application built on top of LibVLC, or
whatever is more appropriate for you.
