Adding new code to
//third_party should take you only a few hours of work, and
you'll normally get a review within a day. Once you've added code to
//third_party, you can update it as much and as often as you like without
having to go through this process again. These are the steps you should follow:
- Get the code
- Put the code in (the right) //third_party
- Get the code working with Google
- Document the code and its context
- Get a review
For questions about this process or document email emailremoved@.
Compilers and toolchains
We allow new compilers and toolchains in
//third_party, but you must follow
the process documented at go/newtoolchains, getting approval from
emailremoved@ before importing them.
For new languages, see the policies at go/newlanguages.
When to escalate
If the code includes a
PATENTS file, a commercial license, or a new license
type that seems fishy, please escalate to the Open
Source Compliance team for review.
