Contributions will only be considered when linked to an open issue, aligned with the project goals, and attested to by the Contributor (ex. signing off on a commit, accepting the Developer Certificate of Origin ).

Get assigned

To get assigned to an issue, start with an open issue labelled Good First Issue in one of the repositories and submit a comment on the issue requesting that it be assigned to you.



All commits should be signed off (-s flag on git commit).

The -s option used for both alternatives causes a committer signed-off-by line to be appended to the end of the commit message body.  It certifies that committer has the rights to submit this work under the same license and agrees to our Developer Certificate of Origin . E.g. signed-off-by: John Doe

In order to use the -s option, you need to make sure you configure your git name ( and email address (

git config --global "John Doe"
git config --global "

In most cases, git automatically adds the signoff to your commit with the use of -s or --signoff flag to git commit. You must use your real name and a reachable email address (sorry, no pseudonyms or anonymous contributions).

To ensure all your commits are signed, you may choose to add this alias to your global .gitconfig :


  amend = commit -s --amend
  cm = commit -s -m
  commit = commit -s

Or you may configure your IDE, for example, Visual Studio Code to automatically sign-off commits for you:



git config --list
