Code Review

GoldCoin Core is security software that helps protect assets worth millions of dollars, so every code change needs to be reviewed by experienced developers.

It can take a long time for other developers to review your pull requests. Remember that all reviewers are taking time away from their own projects to review your pull requests, so be patient and respectful of their time.

Please also consider helping to review other people’s pull requests. You don’t need to be an expert in GoldCoin, the GoldCoin Core codebase, or C++ (although all these things help). There are generally open pull requests that any programmer can review.

To report an issue, please see the bug reporting page.

Starter Projects

Do you want to begin coding for GoldCoin Core but don’t have a specific improvement in mind? Here are a few ideas:

  • Fix existing issues: the issue tracker is the best place to find a useful way to contribute to GoldCoin Core. Before starting to write any patches for issues you find, you may want to comment on the issue to make sure nobody else is already working on it.

  • Write tests: GoldCoin Core is covered by many tests, but patches that improve test coverage are always welcome and are a great way to build familiarity with the codebase. See the documentation about automated testing.
