Contributing to Codice

There are many ways to contribute to Codice, or any of the projects. In order to formally contribute you'll need to sign, at a minimum, an Individual Contributor License Agreement (ICLA). If you're contributing as an employee of an organization you'll also need to sign a Corporate Contributor License Agreement (CCLA) which protects all parties given intellectual property constraints.

But! You don't need an agreement to communicate.


It all starts with communicating with the projects, or our organization. The mailing lists, and issue trackers - the communities - are an ocean of knowledge. It's a two-way street, so let's ensure we're all communicating well.

Submit issues, which helps us document the process as well.

Blog, speak and attend Mil-OSS events!


Fork, fix and submit patches, or pull requests. Earn yourself a spot as an official contributor by signing the agreement and working with the projects.


It's not just about the code. We're also looking for contributions towards documentation (indirectly in blog posts too) for projects. If you're interested, reach out to anyone in the project PMC, the mailing list or the Codice BoD and we'll get you moving in the right direction.


There are also ways to contribute by sponsoring events or donating. Feel free to contact us at
