Patches are always welcome! Please submit your patches via LineageOS Gerrit!
You can do this by using these commands:
(From root android directory)
(Go to repo you are patching, make your changes and commit)
lineagegerrit <for(new)/changes(patch set)> <branch/change-id>
repo start lineage-15.0 .
(Make your changes and commit)
repo upload .
Note: "." meaning current directory
For more help on using this tool, use this command: repo help upload
Make your changes and commit with a detailed message, starting with what you are working with (i.e. vision: Update Kernel)
Commit your patches in a single commit. Squash multiple commit using this command: git rebase -i HEAD~<# of commits>
To view the status of your and others' patches, visit [LineageOS Code Review](http://review.lineageos.org/)
To get started with Android/LineageOS, you'll need to get
familiar with [Repo](https://source.android.com/source/using-repo.html) and [Version Control with Git](https://source.android.com/source/version-control.html).
To initialize your local repository using the LineageOS trees, use a command like this:
repo init -u git://github.com/LineageOS/android.git -b lineage-15.0
Then to sync up:
Please see the [LineageOS Wiki](http://wiki.lineageos.org/) for building instructions, by device.
For more information on this Github Organization and how it is structured,
please [read the wiki article](http://wiki.lineageos.org/w/Github_Organization)
All supported devices are built nightly and periodically as changes are committed to ensure the source trees remain buildable.
You can view the current build statuses in the [Jenkins](http://jenkins.lineageos.org) tool.
