Contributing to Mattermost without a Ticket

Contributions for minor corrections and improvements without a corresponding Help Wanted ticket are welcome. For example, a pull request for a bug or incremental improvement, with less than 20 lines of code change, is usually accepted 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:

Note: For pull requests greater than 20 lines of code, a Help Wanted ticket should be opened by the core team. This helps ensure that everything going into the project aligns with a unified vision. Core committers who review the PR are entitled to reject it if there isn’t a Help Wanted ticket and feel it significantly changes behavior or user expectations.

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.
