After you decide on a repository to contribute to, a great place to start is by looking at the Issues tab for something you think you could help with, unless you already have something in mind. If you find something that you think you can do, please leave a comment stating your intent to work on it, and please clarify any details you’re unsure of before starting work. Likewise, if you’re attempting something that isn’t being tracked in an issue, please confirm that it is something that would be beneficial to the project before you start, either by making an issue on GitHub or chatting to the developers on Discord; we’d hate for your work to go to waste! We will not accept contributions that are obviously low-effort or unhelpful, and PRs will be accepted at the sole discretion of the team responsible for the repository.
Once you know what you’re going to do, make sure to read the contribution guidelines for the repository, which are usually found either in the README or the CONTRIBUTING.md file. These guidelines will not only give you advice for developing the repository locally, but they often also contain information about the appropriate procedures for submitting contributions, as well as code conventions. Contributions that correctly follow procedures and conventions are likely to be reviewed and accepted far more quickly. Some repositories have other contribution-related files that aren’t as obvious, like
ARCHITECTURE.md in quiltmc.org, so it’s always advisable to have a good look around before you begin.
After you’ve finished and tested your work, it’s time to submit it as a Pull Request. All contributions must be submitted as Pull Requests to be tracked by Hacktoberfest and Modfest, including low and non-code ones.
In your Pull Request title, write a short overview of your changes, with more detail in the description. Please make sure to include if you would like your contributions to count toward Hacktoberfest, Modtoberfest, or both. Remember, well-written Pull Requests make everyone’s lives easier, and makes it more likely for your contribution to be reviewed and accepted in a timely fashion.
In case you’re unfamiliar with the Pull Request process, it generally goes like this: After you submit your Pull Request, members of the team responsible for the repository that you’re sending the Pull Request to will look over your work and let you know of anything they want changed before it can be merged into the main repository. To make any changes to the files Pull Request, just commit them to the branch you used to create the Pull Request, and they’ll automatically be added, as long as you remember to push them to GitHub as well.
