Exploring the codebase

Hello I am new to open source and also to Root. I have installed Root using binaries using Ubuntu and have also forked and cloned the root repository from Github.
So I was confused on how should I proceed next

  • Read about the primer , manual and other Root documentation and get acquainted with the Root codebase (after completing the documentation) then go for contribution


  • Directly pick an issue on github and start exploring on how to solve those issues.

Also, I need help regarding the default value for relative accuracy for numerical integration in Ambiguous default parameter in TF2::Integral documentation · Issue #13005 · root-project/root · GitHub

Thank You!

For this GitHub issue , I’ll let @couet take care of it. And I would also suggest to get familiar with ROOT itself and at least try following the primer. And feel free to contribute! :slight_smile:
