Information for Developers

Become a Developer

The DAWG welcomes new developers and testers to join the team!

We use Github as an online platform for developing RST. Please contact us if you would like to be added to the list of developers.

If you would like to add a new feature to the RST, please contact us as early as possible to discuss the plan for implementation. You can contact us by opening a new Issue on Github, or by email.


We are in the process of improving our developer documentation. Some of these documents are either outdated or under development.
