- Report issues to the site’s issue
tracker. This could be
things like typos in text, reports on pages that could be improved, reports
of broken or updated links, suggestions for additional text, requests for
news to be posted, etc. Using the issue tracker allows the site maintainers
to discuss the issue with the issue’s author and with each other to ensure
that the issue is satisfactorily addressed.
- Discuss on the Csound Users Mailing List or the Csound Slack channel any of
the above. Most of the site maintainers are active readers of the Csound Mailing
list and can either address the site changes directly or work on getting a
new issue filed and addressed.
- Users with technical understanding of Github and Jekyll can fork the
project, make changes to their version of the project, then submit pull
requests. Site maintainers will work to process all pull requests quickly.
