You would like to help on DAViCal, but want to know where to start?

Where to start

  • Check the code out of Git and take a look at it.
  • Think about what you want to do and why you want to do it.

How to start

Read Developer Setup first!

  • Chat/email about what you are doing, and what you would like to do. (especially on IRC, but the mailing lists are good too).
  • Make small changes.
  • Try and make your changes fit the existing programming style.
  • Try and make your changes have low impact on the existing code.
    • Perhaps write them as an include defining a function, and a code hook that calls the function at the appropriate place.
    • Consider the possibility that the code might run in a wide variety of environments.
    • Try not to haul in large external dependencies.

What to start

but don't feel restricted to this list. Chat with the developers.
