Filling issues and contributing to

First of all, thank you for your interest in making packaging better! There are number of ways you can help:

  • reporting bugs;
  • proposing features;
  • contributing code bug fixes and new features;
  • contributing documentation fixes (there is probably a ton of grammar errors :/) and improvements.

The following sections describes those scenarios. Golden rule: communicate first, code later.

Reporting bugs

  1. Enable debug output: set "Debug" to "true" in ~/.nut.json.

  2. Make sure bug is reproducible with latest released version: go get -u

  3. Search for existing bug report.

  4. Create a new issue if needed. Please do not assign any label.

  5. Include output of:

     (cd $GOPATH/src/ && git describe --tags)
     go env
  6. Include any other information you think may help.

Proposing features

Please add your comments to existing feature requests, but do not create new without proposing them in mailing list first.

Contributing changes

  1. Read all previous sections first.
  2. You can make small changes right in the web interface. Spot a typo? Fix it! :)
  3. For bigger changes make a fork on GitHub and clone it into $GOPATH/src/
  4. Run make prepare to install remote packages and make run to run local server.
  5. Create a topic branch.
  6. Make your changes.
  7. Publish your topic branch.
  8. Make a pull request.
