1 ## Contributing to Git
3 Thanks for taking the time to contribute to Git! Please be advised that the
4 Git community does not use github.com for their contributions. Instead, we use
5 a mailing list (git@vger.kernel.org) for code submissions, code
6 reviews, and bug reports.
8 Nevertheless, you can use [GitGitGadget](https://gitgitgadget.github.io/) to
9 conveniently send your Pull Requests commits to our mailing list.
11 Please read ["A note from the maintainer"](https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git/plain/MaintNotes?h=todo)
12 to learn how the Git project is managed, and how you can work with it.
13 In addition, we highly recommend you to read [our submission guidelines](../Documentation/SubmittingPatches).
15 If you prefer video, then [this talk](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7i_qQW__q4&feature=youtu.be&t=6m4s)
16 might be useful to you as the presenter walks you through the contribution
17 process by example.
19 Your friendly Git community!
