Hey guys,

So I don't think I'm authorized to commit to the SVN repo yet.
Can someone add me to the repo?

Also, is it ok if I wipe everything in
and copy everything from + /public folder
and have the site point to that folder?

Thanks Fil!

I'm gonna copy that over to the site and push everything to the repo.

Your condensed version would be ideal for the website, which in turn can
link to the detailed Wiki article on contribution.

Hey Yohei,

I took a stab at updating the cordova wiki page on contribution:

It is mostly Michael Brook's work on the original article from the old
phonegap wiki:

It is a lot of info but perhaps a condensed version could be something
along the lines of:


First, make sure you have signed the Apache CLA [link].

The JIRA issue tracker [link] and the dev mailing list [link] are good
places to identify areas to help out in.

Next, clone the git repository for the project you are wishing to
contribute to [see below or link]. We recommend employing a certain type
of git workflow, please see our wiki article [link] for more information.

Finally, to share your changes with the community, you can send a pull
request on GitHub to the Apache git mirrors [link]. You can also advocate
for your changes directly on our mailing list [link].

Hey everyone,

So Michael has been pretty busy with client project and I was wondering
if anyone else would like to take a stab at writing up the content.

I'm looking for the content to go into the "Want to Contribute?"
( section
explaining how one can get involved in Apache Cordova. Ideally
description would be less than 3 paragraphs. I don't fully understand the
contribution process so it would be nice to have it written by someone
who has better insight on these.

Awesome work Yohei! I'd be happy to sit down with you (and anyone else) to
write up the content.

I agree with Brian, keep it simple and separate. In the longer-term, it
would be nice to see the site running from a Git repository instead of SVN
- for consistency and pushing along the Git infrastructure experiment.

I say we go w/ your first option Patrick. Its not going to be under

So here is a preview of the site:

Nice!  Love that it's a single page.

I've temporary put the codebase up on but we should setup a
repo for that under apache-cordova and move everything there.

It appears we can edit the content by editing
cordova-website/www/template.html and then re-gen'ing.  Nice.

It turns out, we already have a "repo" for the main web site - it's an
repo though [1][2].  So, here are some options, sorted in increasing
of pain (my opinion):

- commit your code to the SVN repo; presumably we'd essentially nullify
"build" that's going on with whatever templating they're currently using.
We'd be committing the actual, final, genned files into the SVN repo,
then publishing that.  Not sure how to nullify the "build", but shouldn't
be difficult.

- move your code to a new Apache Git repo, or maybe put it in the docs
repo; I think I'd prefer to reuse docs instead of creating a new one.
we want to update the main site, we "build" the site into the checked out
SVN repo, then check in the SVN bits.  Still need to figure out how to
nullify the "build".

- get SVN completely out of the picture - the problem is that I have no
idea how to do this; the "front page" staging and publishing story looks
non-trivial to me; not clear how we could have it work off a Git repo
instead of SVN, have it do our build, etc.  Maybe it's trivial, maybe
unpossible; I have no idea.

I'd be happy to figure out the staging and publishing steps for the first
two options.  I don't have the time or patience for the third option.
