Contributing

Do you want to contribute? Here are our contribution guidelines.

Principles

  • Principle #1: The toolkit will be kept simple.
  • Principle #2: As soon as a comparable feature is available in the Windows SDK for Windows 10, it will be marked as deprecated.
  • Principle #3: All features will be supported for two Windows SDK for Windows 10 release cycles or until another principle supersedes it.

This project has adopted the code of conduct defined by the Contributor Covenant to clarify expected behavior in our community. For more information see the .NET Foundation Code of Conduct.
