Here is how you can work on the code with us
There are two branches in the main repo on Github:
Please pull in any changes from the project repository and merge them with your work before issuing a pull request. We reserve the right to reject any patch which results in a large number of merge conflicts. This is especially true in the case of language translations - where we may not be able to understand the subtle differences between conflicting versions.
Also - test your changes. Don't assume that a simple fix won't break something else. If possible get an experienced Friendica developer to review the code.
