Subject Re: Query on Source Code Submission
Date Sat, 18 Feb 2012 00:12:23 GMT

Hello Girish,

Derby welcomes students to the community.  The normal process for people to
get involved and contribute code is to join the derby development
commmunity, submit contributor license agreements, and submit incremental
patches for the work.  All the while the students will be able to discuss
and get feedback from the Derby development community during the process.   

If there is some  large chunk of existing work that you want to contribute
then I think that would involve a grant which I don't know too much about,
but is much more complicated I think and involves lawyers. From a Derby
community perspective might be tough to digest all at once especially if it
touches a lot of existing code.

I am hoping you and your students are just getting started with your work
and fall into the first category.
I would suggest that you read about the community [1]  and   subscribe to 
the derby developers list [2] if you have not already. Assuming it is all ok
with IBM, approach the list regarding the technical details of the
improvements  you and your students would like to make.  I look forward to
hearing you on derby-dev.
