Contributing to KWSys
*********************
Overview
========
Patches
=======
KWSys is kept in its own Git repository and shared by several projects
via copies in their source trees. Changes to KWSys should not be made
directly in a host project, except perhaps in maintenance branches.
Please visit
KWSys uses `Kitware's GitLab Instance`_ to manage development and code review.
To contribute patches:
#. Fork the upstream `KWSys Repository`_ into a personal account.
#. Base all new work on the upstream ``master`` branch.
#. Create commits making incremental, distinct, logically complete changes.
#. Push a topic branch to a personal repository fork on GitLab.
#. Create a GitLab Merge Request targeting the upstream ``master`` branch.

Once changes are reviewed, tested, and integrated to KWSys upstream then
copies of KWSys within dependent projects can be updated to get the changes.
