Where to begin? Yocto Project is, well, massive with a variety of users and contributors. It can be a lot to take in — and we are here to help. We have a list of good first issues if you want to help but don’t know where to start. Now what? Before you contribute some code, please read our Contribution Guide and Community Guidelines. It goes over the processes around creating and reviewing requests.
