Patch Guidelines - and how to find something to work on
We appreciate every help we get from our community. Especially if we receive patches.
If you are a developer and want to contribute to this project, then you might wonder what you could do.
Your first stop should be our Mantis bug tracker. Or the roadmaps to be more specific.
If an issue was not yet assigned to a developer, then you can give it a try if you want.
If it is a time-consuming change, then it would be wise to start a work in progress thread, to avoid that someone else starts to work on the same issue.
But to get a patch into our svn, a few criteria have to be met.
This is why we have created a ::description in our wiki:: which explains the patch process from start to end in detail.
Please read ::this description:: and follow it if you are going to submit a patch.
