Start with contributions



  • Hi all!

    After several years of working with Qt I'd like to contribute with the project. I've thought to start with small and simple issues. I've set up the main repository to start working on that without problems but when I went to the "Qt Bug Tracker" I don't know how if I have to assign issues to my self or it's another who assigns them.

    I feel I'm missing something on the workflow when you want to actually start coding.

    Can you help me with that? :D

    Hi @francescmm,

    For start, you could read the links in https://forum.qt.io/topic/92914/qt-related-link-collection in the section "Qt Development".

    I've thought to start with small and simple issues.

    Good idea :) One thing that can always be improved is documentation. And of course things that annoy you personally (be it bugs or missing features).

    I've set up the main repository to start working on that without problems

    Also good. Have you also set up Gerrit? [Edit: of course you have]

    but when I went to the "Qt Bug Tracker" I don't know how if I have to assign issues to my self or it's another who assigns them.

    You cannot assign them to you as you need some rights to do so. One possibility is to ask here in the forum, another one is to write a short comment in the bug report.

    If you add a line Task-number: QTBUG-12345 in the commit message, the commit will be linked to that bug report so that can easily tracked.

    Regards and happy coding!

    PS: If you have further questions, don't hesitate to ask!



  • Thanks @aha_1980 for the help, that's all I need it! :D
