Contributing code is not difficult. Here are
some general guidelines:
FSF must maintain the right to accept or reject potential contributions.
Generally, the only reasons for rejecting contributions are cases where
they duplicate existing or nearly-released code, contain unremovable
specific machine dependencies, or are somehow incompatible with the
rest of the library.
Acceptance of contributions means that the code is accepted for adaptation
into libgnustep-gui. FSF must reserve the right to make various editorial changes
in code. Very often, this merely entails formatting, maintenance of various
conventions, etc. Contributors are always given authorship credit and shown
the final version for approval.
Contributors must assign their copyright to FSF via a form sent out
upon acceptance. Assigning copyright to FSF ensures that the code
may be freely distributed.
Assistance in providing documentation, test files, and debugging
support is strongly encouraged.
Extensions, comments, and suggested modifications of existing libgnustep-gui
features are also very welcome.
