I'm an aspiring open source contributor, I wanted to contribute to
openSUSE and have claimed a beginners issue,, I have
worked with MVC architectures before and know the basics of Ruby On
Rails. I'm also proficient with the VSC in use.
As the code base is large, I wanted some guidance. Has the code been
documented somewhere? How do I start with the above-mentioned issue?
How do I start reading the code, in general, to contribute to other
issues on the project?
Some help on the above question will be really appreciated.

Hi Ankit,

Nice to hear that you want to contribute to Open Build Service. :)

Regarding the documentation, you find the OBS Contribution guide here:

There is also some documentation in the Wiki. For setting the project and being able to start working you may find the Development Environment section useful:

As you say, OBS code is large, so do not try to understand the whole code from the beginning.
Step by step ;) First, you need to set the project. You can try to set it up with the links I send you.
And if you have doubts do not hesitate to write us again.
You can also find all OBS developers on our IRC channel: #opensuse-buildservice on
Or write me in IRC directly (Ana06).
