As an open-source project, we welcome and encourage the community to submit patches directly to the project. In our collaborative open source environment, standards and methods for submitting changes help reduce the chaos that can result from an active development community.
This document briefly summarizes the full Contribution Guidelines documentation.
- Zephyr uses the permissive open source `Apache 2.0 license`_ that allows you to freely use, modify, distribute and sell your own products that include Apache 2.0 licensed software.
- There are some imported or reused components of the Zephyr project that use other licensing and are clearly identified.
- The Developer Certificate of Origin (DCO) process is followed to
ensure developers are following licensing criteria for their
contributions, and documented with a
Signed-off-byline in commits.
- Zephyr development workflow is supported on Linux, macOS, and Windows, (with a few exceptions).
- Source code for the project is maintained in the GitHub repo: https://github.com/zephyrproject-rtos/zephyr
- Issue and feature tracking is done using GitHub issues in this repo.
- A Continuous Integration (CI) system runs on every Pull Request (PR) to verify several aspects of the PR including Git commit formatting, Coding Style, sanity checks builds, and documentation builds.
- The Zephyr devel mailing list is a great place to engage with the community, ask questions, discuss issues, and help each other.
