Welcome to Melange!

You‘ve arrived at this page because you’ve expressed interest in contributing to Melange. Here's some information to get you started!

  • Please read our GettingStarted page for instructions on setting up your development environment.
  • MailingListsGuidelines talks about our mailing lists. Most technical discussion happen on melange-soc-dev.
  • We use Gerrit for code reviews. You should also read ContributionReviews.

A lot of people ask what they should work on. Right now, we have over 350 open issues in the issue tracker, but you shouldn‘t assume that because an issue is there it should be worked on. Issues marked with the Bienvenue label might be a good place to start, or you can look through the tracker yourself. The best place to start is with something tiny -- that’s a good way of learning our code and processes. Once you‘ve completed a few small tasks, it’s time to take on something bigger.

Our focus right now isn‘t on adding large new features -- it’s on maintainability, bugfixing, cleaning the code, improving usability and performance.

Looking forward to seeing patches from you!
