Contributions to Magento Open Source or Magento Commerce are a powerful and effective way to strengthen the wider Magento community. The entire Magento community benefits from this continuous improvement of the Magento Framework, keeping it current with the development tools and best practices.
We are grateful to all Partners who actively participate in the development of the platform, expanding features through special projects, and support the global community who use and contribute to the repositories. To further support Partner contributions to code, special projects, and the entire community, we are expanding with a new Technology Partner Contribution Program.
New Technology Partner Contribution Program
Contributions from our partner community and developers are fundamental to enhancing Magento Commerce and answering merchant needs. From innovative extensions to security patches, our community helps us offer best-in-class technology to merchants around the globe.
We are immensely grateful to the partners who actively participate in the development of the platform and, to recognize their efforts, we are launching a program that will track and reward Magento Technology Partners for their contributions.
The Award Point System and Contributions
We use a point system that spans these multiple categories to assign points for each recognized achievement to completed pull requests (PRs). All rankings automatically track and update per month, quarter, and year in the Magento Contributors site.
We want to recognize the following types of Partner achievements:
Contributions can be submitted in the following areas:

About the Magento Community Engineering Team
We are Magento developers dedicated to facilitating community contributions to the Magento code base. We’ve already made outstanding progress processing pull requests from the community. Check our weekly Community Engineering newsletters for continuing updates on Magento core and special project updates.
Besides accepting and publicly acknowledging community contributions as described above, our most recent initiative has been to open up internal repositories to Partner developers.
In addition, we hope that providing access to these previously private repositories will heighten Partner awareness of the latest changes to Magento Commerce. Partners can then open issues against this repository, and then apply what they learn to Magento Open Source.
