Please try to be as detailed as possible in your report too. What is your environment? What steps will reproduce the issue? What browser(s) and OS experience the problem? What would you expect to be the outcome. All these details will to assess and fix any potential bugs.

Contribute code

First, head over to the Issues tab. Check for any open or closed issues relevant to what you're interested in working on.

  1. Fork the project.
  2. Clone your fork ( git clone<username>/normalize.css.git ).
  3. Add an upstream remote (git remote add upstream git://
  4. Get the latest changes from upstream (git pull upstream master).
  5. Create a new topic branch to contain your feature, change, or fix ( git checkout -b topic-name ).
  6. Make sure that your changes adhere to the current coding conventions used throughout the project - indentation, accurate comments, etc.
  7. Update the timestamp at the top of the file. You MUST do this.
