Developers' corner

The MonetDB project is based on the skills and energy of many volunteers. In return, the core team invites people to visit the group for short/longer periods to get involved and to contribute in research and code development/maintenance.

Nightly testing
The test web summarizes the results of the automated testing on the nightly builds of  various platforms. It is a good starting point before picking up a daily build version. Beware, such packages are in flux and may contain both the requested patches as areas under heavy development.

Reporting a bug
Bug reporting and feature requests are essential to improve the system. Both are handled through a Bugzilla-based bug tracker.

Don't hesitate to report glitches or unexpected behavior by joining a MonetDB mailing list to follow the code evolution and to share experiences.

Source repository
The MonetDB code base is managed by Mercurial whose web-front interface is easiest for browsing and tracking patches.

For those venturing to install MonetDB from source on their own platform, the compilation essay is a must read.
