# Setup
# Contributing
We love to get patches for dak. Enhancements, bugfixes,
make-code-nicer/easier, anything.
## Merge requests
With dak being available at the [Salsa Service](, we
now prefer receiving merge requests there. They allow simple reviews
using the webinterface and also allow discussing (parts of) the code
within the Salsa UI. They also allow much easier tracking the state of
different requests than a mail on a list ever allows.
To create merge requests that, simply go to [the Salsa project
page](, select **Fork** followed
by the namespace you want to put it in (usually your private one).
Then simply clone this fork and work it in, preferably in a branch
named after whatever-you-are-doing.
When you are happy with what you coded, use the UI on Salsa to create
a merge request from your feature branch, either using the web
interface or by using e-mail, see the [Gitlab MR
for details on this process.
### Alternative to using Salsa
While we do prefer merge requests as described above, we also accept
patches send by mail to our mailing list, see above for details on
the list.
