  • Code Contributions: Generally, our working group follows the documented DSpace Code Contribution Guidelines and Code Style Guide.
  • Join one of our weekly meetings (see below). Meetings tend to be hands-on, but we welcome newcomers.
  • Join our Slack channel(s) (see below).  We use Slack as a way to stay in touch each day (between our weekly meetings)
  • Developers are welcome to jump in and claim tickets for either Angular UI or REST API We maintain a list of easier tickets specifically for new developers to learn about the contribution process (If none of these tickets look interesting, or the list is getting small, please get in touch and we'll find an easy task for you to start with)

Meeting Times & Communication Channels

  • Meetings: We meet every week on Thurs (see schedule below), using the DSpace Zoom Meeting Room (using Slack as a backchannel).  Anyone is welcome to join these meetings.
  • Slack: Between meetings, we encourage usage of Slack to keep in touch and ask questions. If you have not yet joined the DSpace Slack, you may request an invite. All are welcome on Slack.
    • In Slack, we primarily use two channels:
      • #dev-sprint: For ongoing, day-to-day (between meetings) updates on DSpace 7 activities
      • #angular-ui : For DSpace 7 (Angular) UI updates, discussions and/or questions.
      • #rest-api : For DSpace 7 REST API updates, discussions and/or questions.
  • Email: We use standard DSpace lists to communicate updates, meetings, etc. We are primarily using dspace-devel (our developers mailing list) and Slack for these communications. Once we get further along, regular updates will also be announced on dspace-community (and other lists).
