Welcome Tej Sukhatme,
Thanks for offering your help with Inkscape. And thank you for your
The best place to start is to do code review for changes that other
developers have added to recently. These can be looking at official
merge requests or just looking at commits in the GitLab repository over
You can then ask questions about the code and the changes on the chat
in the #team_devel channel. Or you can
post questions here on the mailing list.
You should also seek to compile Inkscape using the guides available.
Let us know your operating system and we can point you in the right
direction for the best documentation. Having a compilation of Inkscape
master branch will be very helpful to everything.
Getting into making your own changes can be done in your own time. I
would start with something small and for anything larger you can
discuss the changes with other developers or even make a merge request
branch to get feedback on the changes.
Bugs on GitLab can be tackled as you like, but we haven't categorised
them by size, complexity or heat (demand for a fix or importance). So
you may have to pick one that seems easy enough to fix.
Let use know if you have any questions.
Best Regards, Martin Owens
