1. Introduction

This document explains the official coding standards which developers for GNUstep should follow. Note that these standards are in addition to GNU coding standards, not a replacement of them.

To summarise, always add a ChangeLog message whenever your commit a change. Make sure your patch, if possible, improves the operation of the library, not just fixes things - i.e. there are many places where things are just hacked together from long ago and really aren’t correct. It’s better to rewrite the whole thing correctly, then just make some temporary fix.

Some particular pieces of code which may seem odd or wrong may in fact be there for particular and obscure, but necessary reasons. If you have questions, ask on bug-gnustep@gnu.org or gnustep-dev@gnu.org.
