This page details the some of the guidelines that should be followed when contributing to this package.


From Documenter version 0.3 onwards release-* branches are used for tagged minor versions of this package. This follows the same approach used in the main Julia repository, albeit on a much more modest scale.

Please open pull requests against the master branch rather than any of the release-* branches whenever possible.


Bug fixes are backported to the release-* branches using git cherry-pick -x by a JuliaDocs member and will become available in point releases of that particular minor version of the package.

Feel free to nominate commits that should be backported by opening an issue. Requests for new point releases to be tagged in METADATA.jl can also be made in the same way.
