How to contribute

Your pull requests are very welcome, but please read the few paragraphs below, it might save our combined efforts.

Obvious bug fixes will be merged quickly, however less obvious cases should include a clear description of how to reproduce the bug. Complex cases must be accompanied with the new unit tests.

Before suggesting PR's for new features - please first discuss those features in the "Issues section". We really appreciate your efforts, but PR's may not be accepted and it might be disappointing - so please communicate. The bandwidth for the testing is valuable and limited and we would like to avoid "easter eggs" and the feature overload.

Please always use feature branches for the PR's, multiple feature/bugfix PR's are harder to understand and less likely to be accepted.

Translators: please translate at the Transifex, not via github!!!

All documentation is in the directory askbot/doc
