Contributing to the Zend Framework – Getting Started

Read the Zend Framework License

The license is BSD based and can be found at

Sign a Contributor License Agreement

To contribute source code or documentation into the framework at any level (from a few lines, through a patch, to a full set of classes), you must first sign the Contributor License Agreement. This will also give you access to become a developer in the issue tracking system and the developer's wiki.

Subscribe to the appropriate mailing lists

Review the Coding Standards

All framework code is covered by the Zend Framework Coding Standards. Learn them, love them, live them.

Learn PHPUnit

Development in the framework is backed by extensive unit testing. We use PHPUnit extensively as our testing framework. For code to be accepted, it must be tested and covered by a unit test.

Contribute to the Wiki

Report, work on, resolve issues in the Issue Tracker

The Zend Framework Issue Tracker is the place to submit issues of all types. This includes bugs, change requests, feature requests (if large enough, they could be submitted as a proposal), and small patches. It is also the place to track the release roadmap and view the current status of framework components.
