How do I submit changes to an open source repo?

If I want to add or fix something in a project that is not mine, or contribute to an open source project what are the steps I take?

Thanks!

This is a great question. GitHub has a guide with step-by-step instructions to help someone through the process.

There is an amazing Open Source Guide created by GitHub and friends that contains all the information you need to know about contributing to an open source project and more! The specific section you are looking for in this guide is How to Contribute to Open Source.

What is great about this guide is that it is an open source project so if you find an error or want to improve on it you can by creating an issue or opening a pull request.
