A question of etiquette? (3 posts)

    I am updating (forking) a WP plugin over on Github - with some functionality on the plugins roadmap - so I know this feature is desired by the developer and will probably be included in their next update through WP plugins.

    When updating the plugin with my additions, do I also update the readme.txt file etc and add my username as a contributor? Or should I contact them and ask to be put on?

    Thanks for any advice ;)

    Maybe looking at how this author handled something like that will help:

    Thanks, it looks like the right approach when releasing it separately, however I am merely contributing and assume my updates will be bundled in the main release :)

    Any other suggestions welcome!
