How to contribute patches to Tycho
First, read [Developing Tycho] . If you want to do an enhancement but don't know where to start or if it's going in the right direction, just ask on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help. If you want to provide a patch for a bug, make sure you include a test case that reproduces the bug.
We prefer git patches created with git format-patch since they preserve a commit message as well as author information. This gives you the credit you deserve in the git history.
