NAME CONTRIBUTING DESCRIPTION If you're reading this document, that means you might be thinking about helping me out with this project. Thanks! Here's some ways you could help out: * Bug reports Found a bug? Great! (Well, not so great I suppose.) The place to report them is <https://rt.cpan.org/>. Don't e-mail me about it, as your e-mail is more than likely to get lost amongst the spam. An example script clearly demonstrating the bug (preferably written using Test::More) would be greatly appreciated. * Patches If you've found a bug and written a fix for it, even better! Generally speaking you should check out the latest copy of the code from the source repository rather than using the CPAN distribution. The file META.yml should contain a link to the source repository. If not, then try <https://github.com/tobyink> or submit a bug report. (As far as I'm concerned the lack of a link is a bug.) Many of my distributions are also mirrored at <http://bitbucket.org/tobyink>. To submit the patch, do a pull request on GitHub or Bitbucket, or attach a diff file to a bug report. Unless otherwise stated, I'll assume that your contributions are licensed under the same terms as the rest of the project. (If using git, feel free to work in a branch. For Mercurial, I'd prefer bookmarks within the default branch.) * Documentation If there's anything unclear in the documentation, please submit this as a bug report or patch as above. Non-toy example scripts that I can bundle would also be appreciated. * Translation Translations of documentation would be welcome. For translations of error messages and other strings embedded in the code, check with me first. Sometimes the English strings may not in a stable state, so it would be a waste of time translating them. Coding Style I tend to write using something approximating the Allman style, using tabs for indentation and Unix-style line breaks. * <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indent_style#Allman_style> * <http://www.derkarl.org/why_to_tabs.html> I nominally encode all source files as UTF-8, though in practice most of them use a 7-bit-safe ASCII-compatible subset of UTF-8.
