Get involved#

We always welcome contributions to all of our software, whether from experienced developers, or researchers looking to make their first open-source contribution.

Many of our projects are quite large and the software is used by researchers around the world. For this reason, all contributions go through a review process to make sure that they are necessary, useful, correct and complete. This “code review” process can often be daunting to first time contributors. It is often not difficult to meet these criteria, but it can be complicated.

For this reason we have written some documents to outline the processes we use, so hopefully they aren’t so opaque. We are also happy to guide new contributors through the process. For more details please see details about mentored open source contributions.
