Contributions from the community are always welcome and encouraged. All resources developed by the Language Application Grid are hosted on GitHub so the only thing needed to contribute is a GitHub account.

Contributing Source Code

All source code produced by the Language Application Grid is released under the Apache 2.0 license and is available from one of our two GitHub organizations:

    The lapps organization hosts the code for the official LAPPS Grid API modules deployed to Maven Central.
    The incubator is the location for projects that are not a part of the LAPPS Grid API. For example the LAPPS Grid fork of the Galaxy project, Docker images, etc.

All of the LAPPS Grid repositories use the Git Flow branching model. What this means in practice is that all pull-requests should target the develop branch as the base of the pull request. More information is available here, but pull requests against the master branch will be rejected as pushing code to master is the trigger for our CI server to perform a release to Maven Central.
