So You Want to Contribute…

For general information on contributing to OpenStack, please check out the contributor guide to get started. It covers all the basics that are common to all OpenStack projects: the accounts you need, the basics of interacting with our Gerrit review system, how we communicate as a community, etc.

Below will cover the more project specific information you need to get started with os-vif.


Please refer how-to-get-involved.

Contacting the Core Team

The overall structure of the os-vif team is documented on the wiki.

New Feature Planning

You can file an RFE bug if it has no interaction with other projects like nova or neutron.

If changes are part of the nova or neutron feature then it can be tracked as part of the nova or neutron feature. In that case, you should use the same topic to track the os-vif changes.

Task Tracking

We track our tasks in Launchpad.

If you’re looking for some smaller, easier work item to pick up and get started on, search for the ‘low-hanging-fruit’ tag.

Reporting a Bug

You found an issue and want to make sure we are aware of it? You can do so on Launchpad. More info about Launchpad usage can be found on OpenStack docs page.

Getting Your Patch Merged

All changes proposed to the os-vif requires two Code-Review +2 votes from os-vif core reviewers before one of the core reviewers can approve patch by giving Workflow +1 vote. One exception is for trivial changes for example typo fixes etc which can be approved by a single core.
