3.6 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

Contributing is easy, unless you're lazy.

  1. Create an Issue and get feedback
  2. Fork the project
  3. Branch and develop with tests
  4. Submit a Pull Request

It is very important that your changes be tested, both via RSpec test and in reality by running via Vagrant. It is also very important that you don't try and code-fist the project. Keep your development focused on one particular feature or bug. Small and focused sets of changes are easier to accept as Pull Requests.
