Get Involved

As an Apache project, Apache IvyDE is very open to external contributions.

There are many ways to contribute to Apache IvyDE.

First, Download and use it, subscribe to the Mailing Lists, and answer to other user questions. You can also browse jira issues, vote for the one you are most interested in, add your comments and feedback.

When you browse the documentation, whenever you see something that could be improved, feel free to edit it and provide a documentation patch. It's very easy if you browse the documentation offline (in the doc directory if you check out IvyDE from svn), you will see a small toolbar at the upper left of the page, which allows you to edit the page. Then all you have to do is attach your modification as a patch to a new issue in JIRA.
If you are interested in contributing documentation, read this page.

You can also provide brand new documentation pages, tutorials, demo, or even links to a tutorial on your own blog.

When you get more confident with IvyDE, you can check it out from svn, and begin to see if there are issues you could fix or implement, and provide patches to make the whole community benefit from your work.

And if you often provide patches and answers on the mailing lists, you may get the chance to become a commiter, with write access to the svn repository!
