How to Contribute to this Document
https://devguide.calconnect.org only serves the Wiki content, without any option to edit it. The sources of this Wiki are available at https://github.com/CalConnect/DEVGUIDE. All changes at GitHub will be pushed to https://devguide.calconnect.org on a regular base. At present this is a manual process which is done at least on a biweekly base during/after the TC DEVGUIDE calls at CalConnect, so it might take some time.
