I wanted to add a new feature to the openCV library . namely , the pedestrian re-identification method discussed here http://www.cv-foundation.org/openaccess/content_cvpr_2013/papers/Pedagadi_Local_Fisher_Discriminant_2013_CVPR_paper.pdf .

Where do i start?

i have gone through the coding style guide. i have forked the repo . and created a new branch.

which module should i add the feature to?

how much progress should i make before sending a PR ?

im a noob to contributions. sorry for any stupidity.

Also id love it if someone helped me understand the Itseez/opencv branch names .

how will i know where the facerec.cpp present in contrib module in the 2.4 branch went in it came to the master branch ?

hi @JewelCV, my best bet is, that your contribution should go into the 3.0(master) branch.

they moved most similar functionality like the one your planning to a contrib repo (that's also where the facerec went) , and i guess, that's where your pr should go, too.
