Hi,

Pretty exciting moment! Your first contribution!

There's some documentation about contributing here:

https://guix.gnu.org/manual/en/html_node/Contributing.html

But contributing is "as simple as" creating a patch and sending it to guix-patches mailing list.
You can use `git format-patch` or `git send-mail` for that.

That's pretty much it, if you have specific questions please don't hesitate to ask.
The documentation is quite clear but it lacks some weird details you might miss in the first pass but we can try to help you here or in guix-devel mailing list too.

Hope this helps.

Best,
Ekaitz

Hi Barnabás!

If you're talking about font-awesome, we already have it (although version 4, since version 5's build system is not free: https://issues.guix.gnu.org/32916)

Now, for patches. You need to clone the git repository, apply your changes. When adding packages make sure to create one commit per added package. You'll find examples of such commits in the history. The message should look like this, on two lines with a blank line in the middle:

gnu: Add foo.

* gnu/packages/foo.scm (foo): New variable.

Once you've added a package to a file, build your package with ./pre-inst-env guix build foo, lint it with ./pre-inst-env guix lint foo and commit.

You can generate a patch with git format-patch -1 (or -2 for the latest two commits, etc). Then send that (those) file(s) to guix-patches@ and wait for a bit until someone reviews it (them).

The manual has this page that you might find useful:

https://guix.gnu.org/manual/devel/en/html_node/Submitting-Patches.html#Submitting-Patches

Don't hesitate to ask if you have further questions or if that was confusing :)

Is Fork Awesome a good alternative? We don't seem to have that
packaged. Yet. *wink wink nudge nudge*
