Greetings ladies and gentlemen:

I've been playing around with my system and I detected an error on one of Trisquel's programs: compton-launcher.

When someone try to create a compton.conf in .config compton won't start because "parse_config(): Failed to read configuration file "~/.config/compton.conf".". The good part is that I know how to repair it and I would like to modify the script myself.

I know that Ruben is the original writer of the script so if I modify his program is he who will decide if what I did should be summited? If it is summited, should I put my email address and my name at the header of the script alongside Ruben's?

To be able to make changes in Trisquel's code (have an account in gitlab), do I have to subscribe to Trisquel-devel?

It will be the first time I contribute in a free software project through code so I'm a little nervous; that is why I'm asking before doing.

Thank you.

Thank you a lot for the info, you showed me that I must learn git.
And the example was very helpful.

Thank you, I'm on it.

Now I have a lot of homework to do.
