Contributing

The source for this documentation is being kept on github; the best way to contribute is to add issues, comments and pull requests there. We’re monitoring IRC during the sprint sessions (and in general) so you can also contact us on channel #xapian on irc.freenode.net [webchat link].

To be able to generate this documentation from a git checkout, you’ll need the Sphinx documentation tool. If you’re using Debian or Ubuntu or another Debian-derived distro, you can get this by installing either the python-sphinx or python3-sphinx package. Once you have Sphinx installed, you can generate HTML output with make html (for a full list of available formats, see make).
