This page serves as the official introduction on how to collaborate with our community and help to improve Funtoo Linux.
+
 
+
== Introduction ==
+
 
+
Thanks for your interest in helping out with Funtoo Linux! Funtoo Linux has existed for several years, and we've been using git since the beginning of the project, but have played with various approaches on how to develop Funtoo Linux in a collaborative fashion. Some approaches have worked, some haven't, and I (Daniel) and others like to periodically experiment with different approaches, so these methods are likely to change in the future.
+
 
+
Let's start by doing a quick overview of Funtoo infrastructure and how it (currently) relates to Funtoo Linux development.
+
 
+
== bugs.funtoo.org ==
+
 
+
Currently, [https://bugs.funtoo.org bugs.funtoo.org] serves as the center of operations for all development. If you're going to collaborate with us, then you should definitely {{CreateAccount}} and familiarize yourself with our bug tracker. We try to ensure that ''all'' work in Funtoo Linux has a corresponding issue opened on the bug tracker, so there is some reference for someone to look to find out ''why'' some change was made.
+
 
+
== The Wiki ==
+
 
+
You are currently reading the wiki, and it is becoming a more and more important part of development. We currently have the ability to define wiki pages for [[:Category:Ebuilds|Ebuilds]], which are used as official documentation for the ebuild. Documentation is a very important part of Funtoo Linux development, and you're strongly encouraged to read about [[Adding an Ebuild to the Wiki]]. Developers who write good documentation gain much respect :)
+
 
+
== git.funtoo.org ==
+
 
+
All of our master git repositories exist on [http://git.funtoo.org git.funtoo.org].
+
 
+
== GitHub ==
+
 
+
We have mirrors of all our git repositories on [http://github.com/funtoo GitHub]. When we push to a repository on git.funtoo.org, it automatically pushes the change to the corresponding repo on GitHub, too.
+
 
+
This has historically created some confusion, because we don't really (right now) do active development on GitHub, using pull requests. If you have an improvement to Funtoo Linux, we want you to open a bug on our [https://bugs.funtoo.org bug tracker]. However, I am hoping that this will change - see {{Bug|FL-1322}}. But for now, if you create an issue or a pull request on GitHub, we probably won't see it in a timely manner.
+
 
+
== The Git Repositories Themselves ==
+
 
+
One important thing to understand about Funtoo Linux is that the git tree you receive when you type <tt>emerge --sync</tt> is what I call a ''transport tree'' -- it is used to deliver updates to you, but it is not used for development. Our main <tt>/usr/portage</tt> tree can be seen at http://git.funtoo.org/ports-2012/tree or http://github.com/funtoo/ports-2012 is generated using automated scripts which take the Gentoo Portage tree, various funtoo overlays, and several other overlays and combine them into a unified tree. We generate an updated commit for our transport tree every 4 hours.
+
 
+
=== Development Trees ===
+
 
+
The repositories that we actually do development in are:
+
 
+
{{#ask:[[Category:Repositories]] [[Repository Type::Development Tree]]
+
|? Repository ID}}
+
 
+
[[Repository:Funtoo Overlay|funtoo-overlay]] is where nearly all of the core Funtoo forked ebuilds live. This tree is maintained by senior Funtoo staff and the BDFL, and also contains stuff like our [[Funtoo 1.0 Profile]] system, and the actual scripts that are used to generate our main "transport" tree that users receive.
+
 
+
[[Repository:Funtoo LDAP Overlay|The Funtoo LDAP]] and [[Repositoyr:Funtoo GNOME Overlay|GNOME]] overlays are examples of development trees where Funtoo staff have collected a bunch of ebuilds that were cluttering up funtoo-overlay, and placed them in their own repository to improve organization. These are treated as extensions of funtoo-overlay.
+
 
+
[[Repository:Funtoo Plex Overlay|The Plex overlay]] and [[Respository:Funtoo DeaDBeeF Overlay|DeaDBeeF]] overlays are examples of overlays that are maintained by independent developers, and these overlays are hosted in these developers' GitHub accounts. We have added these overlays to our merge script, so any updates made to these GitHub repositories are automatically pulled into our transport tree.
