+# Contributing to Box Backup
+We encourage contributions, especially completed ones (pull requests and patches). However please be aware of some restrictions:
+* This is backup software, it needs to be simple and reliable.
+* Almost all of the code is in C++ for performance.
+* The code is portable (cross-platform) and must remain so.
+* We have limited capacity to review contributions or respond to emails, so it may take a while.
+* We prefer not to add complexity where possible, especially if it can be done in a separate process via an interface.
+* All contributions must be dual-licensed BSD and GPL (can be used under either license).
+* Please follow the [coding style](https://www.boxbackup.org/wiki/CodingStyle).
+* Please use Github pull requests where possible.
+More information is available on our [Developers Documentation](https://www.boxbackup.org/wiki/DevelopersDocs) page.
