Description

Some external contributors want to contribute large bodies of code to Core Tor. Integrating these large contributions presents some unique challenges, compared to bugfixes. We should establish some guidelines for both the core devs and the external contributors to make this go more smoothly.

These guidelines should go somewhere in doc/HACKING, or maybe a top-level CONTRIBUTING.md file.

Examples of types of outside contributors for whom this would be useful:

  • Researchers
  • Applications integrating Tor
