Hello everyone,

I'm testing some features edge and corner detection algorithm with c++, and I'll work on theme for 2years again (PhD thesis).

I'm comparing some results with OpenCV functions. Since some features are not patented, I wanted to contribuate to OpenCV with their source code.

I read all pages on GitHub about "how to contribute" and "coding style guide". I started to learn the internal structure of OpenCV source code (i had not finished yet :) )

in the explaintion of how to contribute i found the folowing note :

All new algorithms should go into opencv_contrib repository by default

. So I was confused, do we fork the opencv/opencv or opencv/opencv_contrib ?

is opencv_contrib made to new algorithms or new files ?

thank in advance for your help guys.

yes, that's true, new algorithms should go into opencv_contrib. (ximgproc, in your case)

and it's nice, that you're trying to contribute ! best of luck !
