Linux Foundation: How to Contribute to Open Source Projects

Ed Henning | The H ( | January 26, 2012

The Linux Foundation has published a paper titled "Upstreaming: Strengthening Open Source Development." In the ten-page PDF document, the two authors explain, among other things, why it is in the best interest of everyone involved that in-house improvements to open source software be submitted back to the original authors of that software (upstream) for inclusion in the next version. The document, which can be accessed after registering, also touches on how best to go about this process.
