Contribute to CHICKEN

There are several ways you can contribute to CHICKEN. Here are some suggestions:

You can donate some money to CHICKEN. See donate for more information.

Create eggs

If you are a developer and have a library you think that may be useful for other CHICKEN developers, you may consider adding it to the CHICKEN repository of eggs.

For information on how to create eggs, see the Eggs tutorial page.

The recommended practice for hosting egg code is using a remote VCS server. See the Releasing your egg document for information on how to host egg code and manage releases.

Please drop us a line where to find your egg and we will add it to the list.

The documentation for eggs is kept in the CHICKEN Subversion repository. In case you add an egg to the official CHICKEN egg index, we encourage you to create a Subversion account and write good documentation for your egg(s). To create an account, send Mario Domenech Goulart an e-mail requesting the account creation. To make the creation of your account faster, you can provide the following information on your account request message:

 $ openssl passwd -apr1

Report bugs

If you find bugs on any CHICKEN tool, egg or documentation, please report them to the CHICKEN users mailing list. If you have an SVN account, you can use the CHICKEN bug tracking system.

If you are able to fix the bugs, patches are always welcome. Either send them to the mailing list or fill a ticket on the bug tracking system and attach the patch.

Bug reports

If you file a bug to chicken-users, please include the following information in your post if possible:

And it would be really cool if you have a patch that remedies the problem!
