How To Be An OpenPET Developer

Signup as Developer

In order to have read/write access to source code on the OpenPET BitBucket repository, users are required to sign up for an OpenPET ‘developer’ account. If you don’t have a developer account, please send an email request to with the following information:

  • Your name
  • Institute/organization
  • Names of individuals who will be working on the project
  • What you intend to do with the source code
  • Your potential contribution to this project

If your email does not include this complete information, then your request to be a Developer will not be granted. Once you have a developer account, you can view our BitBucket repository.

Contributer vs. Developer

There are two different levels of access that are possible and will be determined by the OpenPET administration. A contributor is given read and write access which means he can clone, edit, and push changes directly from a local machine. A developer is given read access only, meaning he can view or clone the repository. For a developer to merge his work with the default branch, he must submit a pull request.
