We invite developers to contribute code -- from small enhancements to new features -- to the DSpace codebase. See the coding guidelines at the project wiki for important information on the process and checklist for submitting code, patches, features, and fixes.
Contributing Code to DSpace
The success of any open-source project lies with the community contributing its collective energy, information, enthusiasm, and effort. There are many ways to contribute to DSpace -- not only in writing code. See the wiki for ideas of how you can help further the DSpace project -- there's a role for everyone.

Internet Relay Chat
Many DSpace Developers and committers monitor the #dspace channel at irc.freenode.net. You may join the channel using your irc client. If you don't have an irc client, use a web gateway, specifying "freenode" and "#dspace".
Bug Reports and Enhancement Requests
If you encounter a bug in the software, or would like to request an enhancement to the software, please check our JIRA to see if it's been already reported. You can customize your Jira views and filters, vote on issues, and add new issues if you create a JIRA account.
