How do I contribute code?

Join

Get an account on the Apache Jira.

Subscribe to the dev list dev@impala.apache.org.  You do that by sending mail to dev-subscribe@impala.apache.org.

Find

Find a JIRA that you would like to work on (or file one if you have discovered a new issue!). If no-one is working on it, assign it to yourself only if you intend to work on it shortly. Ramp-up JIRAs are a great place to look for your first patch ideas.

Jira has a whitelist of users that are permitted to modify Jiras. Mail the dev@impala.apache.org list and request access to assign Jiras to yourself. Please provide your Apache Jira username in the email.

Except for the very smallest items, it’s a very good idea to discuss your intended approach either on the JIRA or on the dev@impala.apache.org mailing list. You are much more likely to have your patch reviewed and committed if you’ve already got buy-in from the core Impala team before you start.
