You have found a bug in a current version of Bareos? You have a feature request?
Please follow the How to create a bug report.
You would like to see a certain feature coming, are not able to develop it yourself, but want to contribute financially instead? Just take a look at the co-funding-page over at bareos.com and pick a project you would like to support.
If you're a developer, start here:
- Subscribe to the developer mailing list so you can see what happening/being discussed
- Pick something to work on and send patches to the mailing list
- Start small until you have a broad familiarity with the codebase
- Unsure what to work on? Take a look at our ideas for projects.
Version Control System
The Bareos project uses https://github.com/bareos/bareos for the parent version control system.
If you like to contribute code, just clone your own copy of the code and do your modifications.
Normal development (everything except bugfixes) will be done against the master branch.
git clone https://github.com/bareos/bareos.git cd bareos
