The USBGuard project uses github for tracking issues and the overall development process:
USBGuard is an open-source project and anyone can contribute to it. There are many ways one can contribute to the project – source code, documentation enhancements, translations, artwork, etc. A nice summary of different ways to contribute is given in an article by Andy Lester, 14 Ways to Contribute to Open Source without Being a Programming Genius or a Rock Star.
Reporting bugs or requesting features
If you don’t have a GitHub account and therefore cannot contribute your patches by forking the repository and creating a pull request, you can still send the patch via e-mail.
The preferred way to prepare the patch is to get fresh copy of the git repository:
$ git clone https://github.com/dkopecek/usbguard
commit the change locally and use:
$ git-format-patch -1 commit-id
to export the patch. commit-id is the commit number of the checkin you want to send (use
git log to see it).
In the commit message, please state:
- What changed
- Why it changed
- If the change is related to a tracked issue, include a reference to it.
