Contributing code to this project
---------------------------------
It's helpful to track fixes or new features via wishlist bugs against the
'qa.debian.org' package, eg with the 'reportbug' tool ('devscripts' package).
The BTS will ensure the developers' mailing list
debian-qa@lists.debian.org
is notified.
Patches can be submitted by mail (git format-patch, see below)
or as requests to pull from a publicly-visible git repository.
In either case, please make a topic branch based on the 'develop' branch.
You can send patches or requests to the development list,
or to the tracking bug: <bugnumber>@bugs.debian.org.
One possible workflow:
git clone git://anonscm.debian.org/debian-qa/jenkins.debian.net.git
git checkout origin/master -b <topicname>
<edits>
git commit -a
git format-patch -M origin/master
reportbug qa.debian.org
<describe the issue, attach the patch>
Contributing bugs to other projects
-----------------------------------
Another very useful type of contributions are filing bug reports based
on jenkins job runs. Another useful kind of contribution would be to
describe how.
