 There are many ways to contribute to Ivy.
 
-First, [[download]] and use it, subscribe to the [[mailing-lists]], and answer to other user
questions. You can also browse [[issues jira issues]], vote for the one you are most interested
in, add your comments and feedback. You can also very easily contribute to the [[wiki]].

-When you browse the documentation, whenever you see something that could be improved, feel
free to edit it and provide a documentation patch. It's very easy if you browse the documentation
offline (in the doc directory if you check out Ivy from svn), you will see a small toolbar
at the upper left of the page, which allows you to edit the page. Then all you have to do
is attach your modification as a patch to a new issue in JIRA.

-Another useful way to contribute is to spread the word: if you like Ivy, say it! On your
blog, on other blog comments, on popular java related sites, wherever. The more Ivy is popular,
the more it will get external contributions, and the better it will be, for the benefit of
the whole community.

a junit test, and a patch to the documentation if it changes anything in Ivy behaviour.
