Low Level Skeleton Library for Communication on GNU/Linux platforms
libmraa is an opensource project and we are actively looking for people to help with:
The recommended method to contribute is to fork on github, and then send pull requests to the main project. You can open issues if you find any bugs/have questions. If you want to work on a large feature then we suggest you file an issue first so we can avoid dissapointments come merging time!
If you'd rather not use github you are more than welcome to send git formatted patches to our mailing list mraa@.email@example.com@m.s.01..firstname.lastname@example.org which you can register for access on: https://lists.01.org/mailman/listinfo/mraa
Use common sense and don't be afraid to challenge something if it doesn't make sense!
If you create a file, then add yourself as the Author at the top. If you did a large contribution to it (or if you want to ;-)), then fee free to add yourself to the contributors list in that file. You can also add your own copyright statement to the file but cannot add a license of your own. If you're borrowing code that comes from a project with another license, make sure to explicitly note this in your PR.
The sign-off is a simple line at the end of the explanation for the patch, which certifies that you wrote it or otherwise have the right to pass it on as an open-source patch. The rules are pretty simple: if you can certify the below:
Developer's Certificate of Origin 1.1 By making a contribution to this project, I certify that: (a) The contribution was created in whole or in part by me and I have the right to submit it under the open source license indicated in the file; or (b) The contribution is based upon previous work that, to the best of my knowledge, is covered under an appropriate open source license and I have the right under that license to submit that work with modifications, whether created in whole or in part by me, under the same open source license (unless I am permitted to submit under a different license), as indicated in the file; or (c) The contribution was provided directly to me by some other person who certified (a), (b) or (c) and I have not modified it. (d) I understand and agree that this project and the contribution are public and that a record of the contribution (including all personal information I submit with it, including my sign-off) is maintained indefinitely and may be redistributed consistent with this project or the open source license(s) involved.
then you just add a line saying
Signed-off-by: Random J Developer <email@example.com>
Using your real name (sorry, no pseudonyms or anonymous contributions.)
