How to contribute your own programs to MADAGASCAR

The MADAGASCAR community is open. Developers take a joint responsibility of maintaining and extending the package. It is easy to become a developer:

  1. Follow the Guide on Adding new programs to Madagascar.
  2. If your employer holds the copyright for your software, obtain a permission to distribute under a GPL license and place a copyright and GPL license notice in each file with code.
  3. Register at SourceForge.
  4. Find out who the current project administrators are and pass your SourceForge user name to one of them.
  5. Upload your directory to the Subversion repository at SourceForge.
  6. Make sure to add reproducible examples of using your program. As a rule, programs without examples are not included in the release version.
