When you are ready to work on a bug fix or your new feature, create a new branch from
development and name it something relevant to the changes you are about to make. Once you are ready to submit your changes, submit a pull request to http://github.com/prawnsalad/KiwiIRC/ to request your changes to be included. Any comments to improve or even tidy code will occur at this stage. Do not be offended if you are asked to change simple things like indentation or variable names - it is to try keep the codebase consistent as a whole :)
Once everyone is happy with your changes they will then be merged into the development branch.
