Contributing to CMake
*********************

Community
=========

CMake is maintained and supported by `Kitware`_ and developed in
collaboration with a productive community of contributors.

.. _`Kitware`: http://www.kitware.com/cmake

The preferred entry point for new contributors is the mailing list.
Please subscribe and post to the `CMake Developers List`_ to offer
contributions.  Regular and productive contributors may be invited
to gain direct push access.

.. _`CMake Developers List`: https://cmake.org/mailman/listinfo/cmake-developers

Patches
=======

Please base all new work on the ``master`` branch.  Then use
``git format-patch`` to produce patches suitable to post to
the mailing list.

Code Style
==========

We use `clang-format`_ to define our style for C++ code in the CMake source
tree.  See the `.clang-format`_ configuration file for our style settings.
Use ``clang-format`` version 3.8 or higher to format source files.

.. _`clang-format`: http://clang.llvm.org/docs/ClangFormat.html
