Fork project repository
One branch for each ticket
Although you can work on the master branch it is advisable to create a new branch for each ticket you start to work on - even if it’s only one. Use the JIRA id and title as name of the branch.
If you need help or want to have feedback for your ideas write to the developes mailing list.
Work on the code. Use local commit as often as you want. Use push (to your own forked repository) as often as you like. Consider the contribution tips. If a task is to hard to get it done: no problem. Just ask for help. If you want to cancel working on a task, don’t forget to unassign the JIRA ticket!
Comments in JIRA
Use comments for the JIRA ticket to document your work.
