Hi Hackers,

perlbrew is open for anyone who are willing to contribute. Here's what you do to get your work released:

  • Fork the repository on github
  • Modify lib/App/perlbrew.pm or script/perlbrew if necessary.
  • Add tests so others do not break your feature.
  • If it seems pulsable, update Changes too. Put a gist of the change in the beginning of the file.
  • Send a pull request to @gugod and make an offer that he cannot reject (optional :-)

Notice that the "master" branch is a stable branch, while the "develop" branch is the default target for pull requests. The master branch should only be moved forward on CPAN releases and there should also be a corresponding git tag for each release, which is the part only @gugod has to worry about. It is suggested, but not required, that you create your own topic branch first and work on the feature, this way it makes it a little bit easier when there are conflicts.

Last, DO NOT edit the ./perlbrew file directly, it is a standalone executable built with dev-bin/build.sh.

Happy hacking!

Sincerely, Kang-min Liu, aka @gugod
