## Contributing code the right way
*(or: how I learned to post merge requests without crying myself to sleep)*
TLDR: it works like Github.
New user accounts on Gogs are not allowed to fork repositories because people
use development accounts to spam. To get initial fork access, do the following:
1. Register on the [development website](https://git.tt-rss.org);
2. Fork the repository you're interested in;
3. Do the needful;
4. File a PR against master branch;
1. Register on the forums and on [Gogs](https://git.tt-rss.org);
2. Create a thread describing your proposed changes in [Development subforum](https://community.tt-rss.org/c/tiny-tiny-rss/development)
while including your Gogs username;
3. You'll be given proper access and will be able to fork repositories and file PRs, etc;
If you already have a fully functional Gogs account it works pretty much like Github:
1. Fork the repository you're interested in;
2. Do the needful;
3. File a pull request with your changes against master branch;
That's it. If you have any other questions, see this [forum thread](https://discourse.tt-rss.org/t/how-to-contribute-code-via-pull-requests-on-git-tt-rss-org/1850).
If you don't want to deal with the above, you can also clone one of the repositories
locally, do the needful, and post resulting patches on the [forums](https://community.tt-rss.org/c/tiny-tiny-rss/development).
If you have any other questions, see this [forum thread](https://discourse.tt-rss.org/t/how-to-contribute-code-via-pull-requests-on-git-tt-rss-org/1850).
Please don't inline patches in forum posts, attach files instead (``.patch`` or ``.diff`` file
extensions should work).
