     7== Guidelines to collaborate ==
     9Most of the plugins listed above are developed at [ Bitbucket] using Mercurial . Please, take a look at my repos list for further details. The preferred way to collaborate and prepare patches (especially if you're interested in enhancing the patch until it gets committed to the repository ''';o)''' is to create a patch queue for the repository of the plugin. You will need to be familiar with MQ extension. Please, follow the steps I mention below. I will use MacTheme repository in the example, so be aware of the fact that the process might be slightly different if your patches enhance another plugin in the list shown above.
     11  1. Sign-in using your
     12     Bitbucket account or
     13     ''your favorite !OpenId provider''.
     14  1. Use your browser and load the home page of the repository
     15     (e.g. for MacTheme).
     16     If you don't see the repository listed in there it might be
     17     because it's hosted by Simelo's project @ Sourceforge.
     18     So take a look at the Hg repos list
     19     and, if this is the case , please contact me
     20     and I'll either clone the repos at Bitbucket or create
     21     the patch queue repository in there (but you'll need an
     22     SF account
     23     to commit successive versions of your patches ''';o)'''
     24  1. Click on ''patch queue'' link on top of the web page (see
     25     [ screenshot for details]).
     26  1. Enter the name of the patch queue repository, a short
     27     description and then click on ''Create patch queue button''
     28     (see [ screenshot for details]). You'll be redirected to
     29     the main page of your patch queue repository.
     30  1. Type the command shown in that page in order to '''qclone'''
     31     the new repository (see [ screenshot for details]).
     32  1. Create and prepare some patches
     33     (read Chapter 12
     34     of or
     35     this tutorial
     36     if you want to know more ''';o)''' , and push your changes
     37     to the public repository hosted by Bitbucket.
     38  1. Let me know of your changes.
     39  1. If you want me to participate so as to enhance the patch
     40     then click on ''Admin'' tab. (see [ screenshot for details])
     41  1. Add ''olemis'' user to the writers list
     42     (see [ screenshot for details]).
