Submitting A Patch
From Koha Wiki
When you want to submit a patch to Koha, you should follow the following steps:
- create an entry in bugzilla if it does not exist already. Don't forget to set the "change sponsored" field if applicable. There is a default assignee for each component. If you plan to submit a patch yourself, please assign the bug to yourself and set the status to "ASSIGNED" (instead of NEW)
- write your patch. Please follow the coding guidelines page
- if your patch adds a feature that is sponsored by a library, don't forget to add 'Sponsored-by: xxxx' in your commit comments. This will detected during the release process and the xxxx will be thanked and credited.
- format your patch. You can use our Git tutorial if you're new to git
- attach your patch to the bug. You can do it through the web interface, or with git bz
- update status to "needs sign-off"
- choose a value for "patch complexity":
- string patch = a patch that touches a string or the documentation/POD only
- trivial patch = a patch that just changes trivial things. Like removing a warn, adding some html in a template,...
- small patch = a patch that changes only a few Perl things
- medium patch = a patch that changes many things, with a low-medium side-effect risk, no or small DB changes
- large patch = a patch that changes many things with a high side-effect risk, large DB change.
Now, you just have to wait for someone taking care of your patch (sign-off and QA) If you need help or want to find someone to test your patch jump on our IRC channel and ask here
