Contributions Without Ticket

Contributions for minor corrections and improvements without a ticket are welcome.

It is acceptable to submit a PR for a bug or incremental improvement, with less than 20 lines of code change, without a Help Wanted ticket if the change to existing behaviour is minor. All pull requests submitted without a corresponding ticket will first be reviewed by a core team product manager. Some examples of minor corrections and improvements include:

Core committers who review the PR are entitled to reject it if they feel it significantly changes behavior or user expectations, which requires a Help Wanted ticket opened by the core team. This helps ensure that everything going into the project aligns with a unified vision.

The best way to discuss opening a Help Wanted ticket with the core team is by starting a conversation in the feature idea forum or opening an issue in the GitHub repository. Alternatively, don’t hesitate to come chat about it in the Contributors or Developers channels.
