For minor modifications or documentation update or debug, there is no need to sign the Scilab Contribution Agreement. The patch can be submitted to the developers mailing list or posted as a comment added to the related bug report in the Scilab Bug Tracker. If relevant, Scilab R&D team will apply the patch in the current Scilab development version.
For more important modifications or to modify directly Scilab source code, Scilab Contribution Agreement signing is mandatory. Signing this agreement gives to the contributor a write access to Scilab source code using GIT with the following capabilities:
- Fix bugs directly
- Add/remove functionalities (After submitting and acknowledgement of a proposal for development, SEP)
- Modify/improve Scilab help pages
