would like to contribute

Hello everyone!

I’m new to open-source in general and to LLVM in particular.
I’d like to contribute and was thinking of starting from http://llvm.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=5639
What the next step should be? Should I register somewhere?

Thanks,
Tami

No need to register. Be sure to carefully read

http://www.llvm.org/docs/DeveloperPolicy.html

then go ahead with your task, make a patch as described on the above
mentioned document, and send it to the llvm-commits mailing list for
review.

Happy LLVM hacking!

  1. Register for an account at the LLVM Bugzilla (the link you sent above).
  2. Find a bug to work on (as you’ve done already)
  3. Accept the bug to show that you’re working on it, so that effort isn’t duplicated
  4. Post a patch (and test case, if applicable) that fixes the bug
  5. Respond to feedback and iterate to revise your patch as needed, until someone accepts and submits your patch
  6. Mark bug as “fixed”
  7. Repeat from step 2

Great!
