There are two ways to contribute to downpour, using OpenStack's gerrit system and GitHub. The repository managed via gerrit and visible at https://git.openstack.org/cgit/openstack/downpour is the canonical repository.
If you would like to contribute using the standard OpenStack tools and processes, you should follow the steps in this page:
If you already have a good understanding of how the system works and your OpenStack accounts are set up, you can skip to the development workflow section of this documentation to learn how changes to OpenStack should be submitted for review via the Gerrit tool:
If you would prefer to use GitHub, you may also submit pull requests to https://github.com/dhellmann/downpour. I will do the work to push the patch through the OpenStack review process on your behalf. That may involve changing some of the git metadata, such as committer. I will try to keep the author field intact so you retain credit. Please add the DCO signature to your commit messages, just to be safe.
The repository https://github.com/openstack/downpour is synced from gerrit. Pull requests to that repository will be closed automatically.
Bugs should be filed on Launchpad, not GitHub:
