How to contribute

Revision as of 08:01, 8 August 2007 by Bmeyer (Talk | contribs)

To contribute to this open source project, the best way is to first subscribe to the developer's mailing list (See the mailing lists page for more details on how to subscribe).

You can also pick one of the open projects we have as a starting point. If you have some other ideas, feel free to add them to the open projects page and let us know about it on the developer's mailing list. Or you can expand one of the existing projects in the projects category.

For example, you can send a message to the mailing list describing the purpose of your contribution and from there your contribution, depending on its value might be either accepted, accepted with modification, or rejected. If it is rejected, you have various outcomes:

  • it might be rejected for now, but you can propose it again in the future (mostly this happens when we are on the verge of doing a release)
  • it might be rejected forever, it is up to you to convince part of the developer community that your contribution is worth adding.
