Hi there everyone, I’m relatively new to Julia programming language, and would just like to know how more on the the development cycle, and how the release cycle pool requests works?
How do the admins prioritize the tasks in which issues to fix first, and what are the certain requirements to commit to master repository etc.
Note that you don’t need commit access to contribute, just fork and make a PR, then it will be reviewed and merged (if applicable).
A lot of contributions come from people outside the core team.

# Notes for Julia Contributors
Hi! If you are new to the Julia community: welcome, and thanks for trying Julia. Please be sure to respect our [community standards](https://julialang.org/community/standards) in all interactions.
If you are already familiar with Julia itself, this blog post by Katharine Hyatt on [Making your first Julia pull request](https://kshyatt.github.io/post/firstjuliapr/) is a great way to get started.
## Learning Julia
[The learning page](https://julialang.org/learning) has a great list of resources for new and experienced users alike. [This tutorial video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWkgEddb4-A) is one recommended starting point, as is the "[Invitation to Julia](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQ1y5NUD_RI)" workshop video from JuliaCon 2015 ([slide materials here](https://github.com/dpsanders/invitation_to_julia)). The [Julia documentation](https://docs.julialang.org) covers the language and core library features, and is searchable.
## Before filing an issue
- Reporting a potential bug? Please read the "[How to file a bug report](https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md#how-to-file-a-bug-report)" section to make sure that all necessary information is included.
- Contributing code? Be sure to review the [contributor checklist](https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md#contributor-checklist) for helpful tips on the tools we use to build Julia.
- Library feature requests are generally not accepted on this issue tracker. New libraries should be developed as [packages](https://julialang.github.io/Pkg.jl/v1/creating-packages/). Discuss ideas for libraries at the [Julia Discourse forum](https://discourse.julialang.org). Doing so will often lead to pointers to existing projects and bring together collaborators with common interests.
## Contributor Checklist
for detailed instructions.
It’s worth noting that we’re entering a feature-freeze (see
1.6 (Soft)-Feature Freeze: Nov 8th), but that’s not a reason to hold back from submitting improvements; it just might mean that some things will be merged with a bit of a delay. That said, anything you notice about problems in the upcoming 1.6 are great candidates for getting submitted ASAP.
Thanks in advance for your interest in contributing! Having many eyes on Julia really makes a difference, and newcomers often have a lot to contribute because of their fresh perspective.
