Appendix A: Contributing to the Nexus Documentation

The Nexus documentation is an open source project in which you can participate, if you have an idea for documentation. Sonatype’s books include open writing efforts, and we see the value of the documentation contributions the same as code contributions. If you are interested in our technology and would like to contribute, please review this appendix.

Contributor License Agreement (CLA)

In order to contribute to the Nexus book, you will first need to fill out a contributor license agreement. This is a legal agreement between you and Sonatype that ensures that your contributions are not covered by any other legal requirements. Sonatype requires contributors to sign this agreement for all major contributions larger than a single section. If your contribution consists of finding and fixing simple typos or suggesting minor changes to the wording or sequence of a particular section, you can contribute these changes via the Sonatype support site or directly as a pull request on the github project. If you contribution involves direct contribution of a number of sections or chapters you will first need to sign our Contributor License Agreement (CLA).
