How to contribute code?

Making a branch for your changes

When adding features or bug fixes, please create a separate branch for each changeset you want us to pull in. Use the issue number in the branch name, or a description of the feature. To create the branch, do something like this:

git branch   (lists your current branches)
git branch my_new_code   (makes a new branch called my_new_code)
git checkout my_new_code

Push your code and make a pull request

When you have finished making your changes, you'll need to push up your changes to your fork so we can grab them. With them all committed, push them:

git push origin my_new_code

This pushes everything in that branch up. Then you can go back over to the main github page and issue a pull request from there. Tell us what you want us to merge and what it does/fixes, and one of us will pick it up.

That lets us know that there's something new from you that needs to be pulled in. We'll review it and get back to you about it if we have any questions. Otherwise, we'll integrate it and let you know when it's in!
