Contributing to RichFaces


We welcome and encourage the community to contribute and help improve RichFaces. There are many ways to contribute if you are interested in helping out and participating in this great open source project:


Report bugs and file feature requests
We can't fix bugs we don't know about!  Similarly we can't implement features unless we know they are required.  Be sure to let us know by filing bug reports and feature reuests in our issue tracker.
Refer to this RichFaces Jira User Guide for details on how to report constructive issues.
Post a patch
If you can resolve an issue, or implement a feature, indicate your intentions as a jira comment in the corresponding issue, and submit a pull request vai our GitHub repository.
Refer to these contribution instructions for details on how to contribute your code.
(Remember to create an account and sign the JBoss CLA !)
Share your RichFaces expertise
Answering people's questions in the user forums, or writing wiki articles providing tutorials is another great way to contribute to the project.  Not only do you help improve the community level of interaction, but you free up the core developers' time to fix bugs and provide features. Your articles might one day be part of the official project documentation!
Participate in the development and design discussions
RichFaces is designed and developed in the public, and both welcomes and encourages community involvement in the process.  The dev forum is a great place to share your ideas for improving the framework.
Addtionally we hold weekly meetings in IRC (#richfaces channel) with public agendas and minutes.  Feel free to participate as we prioritize and dicsuss scheduled jira issues.
