Volunteering and Contributing to Metrics

The Metrics Team supports a growing codebase for maintaining and analyzing data for an also growing number of data sources. Thus there are limited resources available for supporting projects outside the immediate scope.

This means on one hand help wanted and on the other that we cannot help volunteers learn how to help us. So we compiled a few steps below what we think help a volunteer getting started smoothly.

How to contribute


Read through the available documentation and take a look at the metrics web sites in order to get an idea what is done here. Starting points:

Typical Work-flow

  1. Pick a task from the metrics-help tagged ones (see table).
  2. Analyze the problem and add a comment containing the (short) analysis and proposed solution.
  3. We'll discuss the solution with you to make sure things fit before too much code is written.
  4. Provide a patch (see guide doc).
  5. Finally the review and revision cycle.
  6. patch merged to Metrics code base.

Where to help

  • Use metrics-lib for analyzing Tor data.
