* Contributing
See the manual for useful hacking informations, either by running
info -f doc/guix.info "(guix) Contributing"
or by checking the [[http://www.gnu.org/software/guix/manual/guix.html#Contributing][web copy of the manual]].
* Commit Access
For frequent contributors, having write access to the repository is
convenient. When you deem it necessary, feel free to ask for it on the
mailing list. When you get commit access, please make sure to follow the
policy below (discussions of the policy can take place on guix-devel@gnu.org.)
Non-trivial patches should always be posted to guix-devel@gnu.org (trivial
patches include fixing typos, etc.)
For patches that just add a new package, and a simple one, it’s OK to commit,
if you’re confident (which means you successfully built it in a chroot setup,
and have done a reasonable copyright and license auditing.) Likewise for
package upgrades, except upgrades that trigger a lot of rebuilds (for example,
upgrading GnuTLS or GLib.) We have a mailing list for commit notifications
(guix-commits@gnu.org), so people can notice. Before pushing your changes,
make sure to run ‘git pull --rebase’.
For anything else, please post to guix-devel@gnu.org and leave time for a
review, without committing anything. If you didn’t receive any reply
after two weeks, and if you’re confident, it’s OK to commit.
That last part is subject to being adjusted, allowing individuals to commit
directly on non-controversial changes on parts they’re familiar with.
