Getting The Code

Getting the source code

OpenStack manages source code in git using a code review tool called Gerrit. The workflow for working with Gerrit is described at GerritWorkflow. Git repositories are mirrored to git.openstack.org and Github.

To get a copy of an OpenStack project, you can clone a repo from git.openstack.org and browse the source code at git.openstack.org/cgit. For instance, to clone the Swift repo:

git clone git://git.openstack.org/openstack/swift

Alternatively, you can use the Github mirror to clone repos and browse code. The git.openstack.org and GitHub mirrors are maintained the same way and contain the same code, so you can use either one, with the difference being that git.openstack.org is hosted by the OpenStack organization.

You can also get stable releases of the code from the OpenStack projects on Launchpad, for example:

Getting dependencies

Hacking on your laptop and running unit tests

Questions about running unit tests locally are fairly common. While all of the projects are pretty similar in how this works, it's best to consult each projects documentation for things like setting up a dev environment and running unit tests.

Each project should publish this info to docs.openstack.org (http://docs.openstack.org/developmer/<PROJECT_NAME>/devref/development.environment.html

For example:
