Suggestions and feedback are very welcome!
If you have an improvement to the codebase and would like to have your code shipped in the production MyMonero app, please submit a pull request, even if it's still a WIP. We try to credit all contributors in app release notes.
Before contributing, please spend a few moments scanning the technology notes to learn about libraries used, reasons behind some architectural choices, and more.
Merging PRs which involve integrating with any third-party services will require discussion and agreement.
We reserve the right to refuse to merge any PRs, such as those which introduce breaking changes.
The maintainer enjoys collaborating with volunteer contributors to the MyMonero apps over IRC private message and the #mymonero room on freenode.net (Come say hello!), so PR'd submissions do not have to be at all complete or perfect on their first submission. (To submit a draft PR for review, simply mark it as '[DO NOT MERGE]')
