Contributing to PX4 Firmware
We follow the Github flow development model.
Fork the project, then clone your repo
First fork and clone the project project.
Create a feature branch
Always branch off master for new features.
git checkout -b mydescriptivebranchname
Edit and build the code
Commit your changes
Always write descriptive commit messages and add a fixes or relates note to them with an issue number (Github will link these then conveniently)
Change how the attitude controller works - Fixes rate feed forward - Allows a local body rate override Fixes issue #123
Test your changes
Since we care about safety, we will regularly ask you for test results. Best is to do a test flight (or bench test where it applies) and upload the logfile from it (on the microSD card in the logs directory) to Google Drive or Dropbox and share the link.
Push your changes
Push changes to your repo and send a pull request.
Make sure to provide some testing feedback and if possible the link to a flight log file. Upload flight log files to Log Muncher and link the resulting report.
