HOW TO CONTRIBUTE TO OpenSSL
----------------------------
Development is coordinated on the openssl-dev mailing list (see
http://www.openssl.org for information on subscribing). If you
would like to submit a patch, send it to rt@openssl.org with
the string "[PATCH]" in the subject. Please be sure to include a
textual explanation of what your patch does.
You can also make GitHub pull requests. If you do this, please also send mail to
rt@openssl.org with a brief description and a link to the PR so that we can more
easily keep track of it.
If you are unsure as to whether a feature will be useful for the general
OpenSSL community please discuss it on the openssl-dev mailing list first.
Someone may be already working on the same thing or there may be a good
reason as to why that feature isn't implemented.
Patches should be as up to date as possible, preferably relative to the
current Git or the last snapshot. They should follow our coding style
(see https://www.openssl.org/policies/codingstyle.html) and compile without
warnings using the --strict-warnings flag. OpenSSL compiles on many
varied platforms: try to ensure you only use portable features.
Note: For legal reasons, contributions from the US can be accepted only
if a TSU notification and a copy of the patch are sent to crypt@bis.doc.gov
(formerly BXA) with a copy to the ENC Encryption Request Coordinator;
please take some time to look at
http://www.bis.doc.gov/Encryption/PubAvailEncSourceCodeNofify.html [sic]
and
http://w3.access.gpo.gov/bis/ear/pdf/740.pdf (EAR Section 740.13(e))
for the details. If "your encryption source code is too large to serve as
an email attachment", they are glad to receive it by fax instead; hope you
have a cheap long-distance plan.
Our preferred format for changes is "diff -u" output. You might
generate it like this:
# cd openssl-work
# [your changes]
# ./Configure dist; make clean
# cd ..
# diff -ur openssl-orig openssl-work > mydiffs.patch
