New development

You have build a development relevant for NEMO shared reference: an addition of the source code, a full fork of the reference, …

You may want to share it with the community (see Hack below) or to propose it for implementation in the future NEMO release (see Proposal / Task below).

The proposals for developments to be included in the shared NEMO reference are first examined by NEMO Developers Committee / Scientific Advisory Board. The implementation of a new development requires some additionnal work from the intial developer. These tasks will need to be scheduled with NEMO System Team.

Hack

You only would like to inform NEMO community about your developments. You can promote your work on NEMO forum gathering the contributions fromof the community by creating a specific topic here discussion/forum/5

Proposal / Task

Your development is quite small, and you would only like to offer it as a possible enhancement. Please suggest it as an enhancement here newticket?type=Enhancement . It will be taken in account, if feasible, by NEMO System Team. To ease the process, it is suggested, rather than attaching the modified routines to the ticket, to highlight the proposed changes by adding to the ticket the output of svn diff or svn patch from your working copy.
Your development seems relevant for addition into the future release of NEMO shared reference. Implementing it into NEMO shared reference following the usual quality control will require some additionnal work from you and also from the NEMO System Team in charge of NEMO development. In order to evaluate the work, your suggestion should be send as a proposed enhancement here newticket?type=Enhancement including description of the development, its implementation, and the existing validations.

The proposed enhancement will be examined by NEMO Developers Committee / Scientific Advisory Board. Once approved by the Committee, the assicated development task can be scheduled in NEMO development work plan, and tasks distributed between you as initial developer and PI of this development action, and the NEMO System Team.

Once sucessful (meeting the usual quality control steps) this action will allow the merge of these developments with other developments of the year, building the future NEMO.
