- Code: there are always plenty of open issues! We also have Bounties.
- Feature ideas: raise an issue with your suggestion
- Peer Support: answer questions on our Slack
Unsure where to begin contributing to Open Collective? You can start by looking through the good first issues, which should only require a few lines of code, and a test or two.

Code review process
The bigger the pull request, the longer it will take to review and merge. Try to break down large pull requests into smaller chunks. If it's a bug fix, it will probably be quickly merged and deployed. If it's a new feature, it will need more testing and review.
If you have any questions, reach out to us on Slack.
