Contribute
If you like what you have seen so far of the project, you might want to contribute! Con-
tributing to HTML5 Boilerplate is rewarding in all the learning and understanding that
you get out of making even the smallest of changes. There are two ways to contrib-
ute; these are as follows:
• Reporting issues
• Submitting pull requests
Reporting issues
If you find something that is a mistake or is incorrect in one of the files in HTML5 Boil-
erplate, then you can file an issue so any of the contributors can take a look at it and
see if it can be resolved.
The trick is to find out if something is an issue on HTML5 Boilerplate or something is
caused by the code your project uses. You can verify if this is a problem with HTML5
Boilerplate by starting a clean install of HTML5 Boilerplate and verifying if the error
still occurs.
If it is an issue with HTML5 Boilerplate, before you file an issue, make sure it has
not been already reported. The GitHub Issues page at github.com/h5bp/htm-
l5-boilerplate/issues lists all open issues. Use the Search bar on top to
search for the issue you are facing. It is likely that it may have been fixed, but the fix
has not yet been pushed to stable branch.
If the issue is brand new, then make sure you isolate the problem in a way that is
obvious through a reduced test case (Chris Coyier writes about what a reduced test
case is in css-tricks.com/reduced-test-cases/ ). When you file a bug report,
make sure it is easy to understand, so we can find a speedy solution. Ideally your bug
report should contain the following:
• A short and descriptive title
• A summary of the issue and the browser/Operating Systems where this
bug occurs
• If it is possible, steps to reproduce the bug
