Becoming involved

Conda-forge is a community-driven effort of cross-platform packaging and as such relies on volunteers to sustain and improve.

We encourage you to contribute in any way you can and would like! You can contribute in many categories such as:

Improve the documentation

You can help to improve the documentation! It is version-controlled in the repository on GitHub. The source text is stored there in the src/ subdirectory and is formatted using Python’s reStructuredText system.

You can propose quick edits directly through the GitHub website if you have an account there — for instance, this link will take you directly to a web-based editor for this very webpage. In general, the file corresponding to each page in the GitHub browser has a little pencil icon in its top-right that lets you open it up for editing.

We are glad to know that you would like to contribute. If you are new to our community, follow the steps below to make your first contribution:

  1. Fork the repository to your own GitHub user account.

  2. Clone this fork onto your computer.

  3. Check out a new branch deriving from master to do your work.

  4. Make and commit your changes.

  5. Submit a pull request to the main repository proposing your changes.

Happy editing!
