Anyone can contribute to the OpenWhisk project and we welcome your contributions.
There are multiple ways to contribute: report bugs, improve the docs, and contribute code, but you must follow these prerequisites and guidelines:
All contributors must sign and submit an Apache CLA (Contributor License Agreement).
Instructions on how to do this can be found here: http://www.apache.org/licenses/#clas
Sign the appropriate CLA and submit it to the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) secretary. You will receive a confirmation email from the ASF and be added to the following list: http://people.apache.org/unlistedclas.html. Once your name is on this list, you are done and your PR can be merged.
Project committers will use this list to verify pull requests (PRs) come from contributors that have signed a CLA.
We look forward to your contributions!
Please raise any bug reports or enhancement requests on the respective project repository's GitHub issue tracker. Be sure to search the list to see if your issue has already been raised.
A good bug report is one that make it easy for us to understand what you were trying to do and what went wrong. Provide as much context as possible so we can try to recreate the issue.
A good enhancement request comes with an explanation of what you are trying to do and how that enhancement would help you.
Please use the project's developer email list to engage our community: email@example.com
In addition, we provide a “dev” Slack team channel for conversations at: https://openwhisk-team.slack.com/messages/dev/
Please ensure you follow the coding standards used throughout the existing code base. Some basic rules include:
