Query - Get Involved

Hello,

I am not sure if this question belongs in this subforum, but I have consulted the Get Involved page:
https://xfce.org/getinvolved

and then browsed the subpages for development/bug fixing

I also browsed the FAQ in the Wiki, but again did not find what I was looking for there.

As I am new to the website and git pages, where would be the best place to consult the relevant development teams?
Which category would be a good place to start?
Applications?
Core libraries?
Plugins?

Thank you for your time and help with this.

The best way to get in contact with the core developers is either through the #xfce-dev IRC channel on irc.libera.chat, or via the xfce4-dev mailing list.

Applications?
Core libraries

The best place to start is to look at bug reports for a specific component of Xfce that interests you and code a patch. After a few successful patches and contributions you can request write access to the component.

Thanks for offering to contribute!

Re: Query - Get Involved

Thank you for advising and for the kind response, I will explore those options.

Given the size of the Xfce project it is good to know where to start and so this has been very helpful.

You are welcome, I look forward to speaking with the development team.
