Contacting the Core Team¶
New Feature Planning¶
New feature will be discussed via IRC or ML (with [Watcher] prefix). Watcher team uses blueprints in Launchpad to manage the new features.
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 HERE.
Getting Your Patch Merged¶
Due to the small number of core reviewers of the Watcher project, we only need one +2 before +W (merge). All patches excepting for documentation or typos fixes must have unit test.
