=Opening issues, feature requests and submitting contributions=
 
 
To open a new issue a user account is required. To create a new user account just select 'Signup for a new account' from the front page and follow the steps. Once the user account is created the process for adding a new issue, feature request and/or contribution is the same and is as follows:
 
* Select 'Report Issue'
 
* Select to correct category (''i.e.'' if the issue affect the CHDK core select '''CHDK core''')
 
** For feature requests select '''Feature request'''
 
** For <code>.diff</code> contributions select '''Diff 'n Patches'''
 
* Fill in how reproducible and severe the issue is.
 
* Choose an concise and accurate summary. The summary field is what everyone will see in the issue list so having it concise and accurate is ''very'' important.
 
* Fill in a description of the issue, feature request or patch. Again, accuracy is very important here as it will help speed the resolution process. If you are contributing a <code>.diff</code> file this is the location of the SVN comment that you would typically specify.
 
* The build field, if known is where you would specify which CHDK build you found the issue on. For contributions this is the build that your changes are based off of.
 
* Specify the camera type
 
* Submit your issue and your done.
