There are many ways you can contribute to nuxwdog. This page should provide some basic pointers.
Most of the nuxwdog code originated from the watchdog daemon used to start the NES server. (uxwdog) This server BR was originally used in Red Hat Certificate Server 6.1. The certificate server has seen moved on to using tomcat as BR its servlet engine, but a need arose to prompt for passwords on server startup, and nuxwdog was introduced BR into RHCS 8.1. nuxwdog discussions occur on the dogtag-pki IRC channel on freenode.
Source Code Repository
For the nuxwdog project, we use the subversion source control system. The code can be retrieved with the command
QA, Development and Bug Triage
For opening, triaging or resolving Trac tickets for the SSSD, we have a process document describing our bug lifecycle BR available. Furthermore, we have adopted the code style and formatting specification used by the Dogtag project to BR describe our C, Java and Perl coding styles.
Our code submission process amounts to this. Clone a copy of the source code repository above. Make some changes and BR commit them locally, then send the patch as an attachment to the email@example.com mailing list. The code BR will be reviewed by one or more engineers on the Dogtag project, and will be replied to either with an "Ack" (in which case the BR code will be pushed to the upstream repository the next time a repo administrator is available) or with a "Nack" (in which BR case the reasons why the patch was refused will be detailed).
