Contributing code back to the project...

  • I just recently downloaded the source for MatterControl and MatterSlice into my local repository, made a branch and have made some changes that I would like to contribute back. When I try to perform the pull request, I get a permissions error. What do I have to do in order to contribute back to the project?

    Hi Brent. Thanks for the interest. The usual procedure for submitting pull requests is to fork the project on GitHub. You then push changes to your forked repository. On GitHub, your fork will have a "Create Pull Request" button that you can use when you think your changes are ready for us. If you need more information on how to go about this, GitHub has some excellent documentation.

  • Thanks for the suggestion. I will try it again after forking the project first. I have been developing for over 30 years, but I am a complete noob with Git.
