Contribute to system extensions

The documentation for system extensions is maintained inside the TYPO3 source code, so the contribution workflow is a little different.

For more information about the various contribution workflows, see Documentation contribution matrix.

  • When it comes to documentation that is contained within the core (like system extension documentation and changelog), you would use Forge to report issues, using the category "Documentation":
  • The TYPO3 Contribution Guide - Core Development explains the contribution workflow for the core. For making a change to the documentation in the core, you would use the workflow explained in that guide (using Git and pushing to Gerrit).
  • You can also test the change by rendering locally as in any documentation patch, because all documentation uses a common format and file structure and can be rendered with the same Docker container.

See System Extensions for a list of system extension documentation.
