Hi and thank you for reaching out.

Here is a few links that hopefully will be useful to you:

So I would read through those websites, then take a look at the issues Jira. When you have picked a task to work on, make a PR and wait for feedback/approvals.

Good luck and reach out if you get stuck/have more questions :slightly_smiling_face:


Hello @pushker001 and welcome to this community :wave:

You could also begin with plugins instead of directly starting with Jenkins.
I particularly like the “Improve a Plugin” tutorial.
If you want a list of plugins that need that kind of improvement, let us know, we have some that need TLC.

Here are two plugins that I just adopted. Would love to have your help.

Both need to be modernized by following the instructions in the tutorial:

I want to work on jenkinsci/built-on-coloumn-plugins
Is the same thing I need to improve which is done in the Schedule - plugin?

Many of the same things are needed in the built-on-column plugin as were needed in the schedule build plugin.

The list from the “Improve a plugin” tutorial is:


why i am not able to fork this repository

GitHub bug? I don’t know other than that. I was able to fork the repository shortly after seeing your message. Try the fork operation again?

showing same message

I just double-checked, I can fork it as well with no issues.

how can I fix it it showing everytime when I try to fork

They do suggest checking to see if you have already forked the repo before. If so that’s the expected error.

Is the same message displayed for every repository you try to fork? If so, then you’ll probably need to contact GitHub support to ask for their help resolving the issue. If not, then you might consider ignoring the problem by selecting another plugin for your contributions.

What experiments have you tried relating to forking repositories on GitHub?

What attributes did you vary in your experiments? Did you try different web browsers? Did you try different computers? Did you try submitting the request from other locations?

What were the results of those experiments?

both the plugins repository that you have been mention I am not able to fork both of them

Can you fork any GitHub repository?

If not, then use the “Contact us” link on the GitHub page to request help from GitHub. It is not likely that the Jenkins project can solve the issue.

If you can fork other GitHub repositories, but are only excluded form forking Jenkins repositories, then it may be time to look for another project to help. Jenkins maintainers don’t see the problem that you’re seeing. Others don’t see the problem that you’re seeing. I’m sorry that the problem exists, but I don’t see anything that we can do to resolve the problem when we can’t duplicate it.

[/quo yes I have tried different repositories I was able to fork them

Assuming your username here matches your GitHub username, it seems you had a PR marked as spam in the jenkinsci organization, maybe this triggered some kind of workflow to temporary block you?

so how can i unblock myself

Raise an issue with the Jenkins infrastructure help desk. Provide a detailed description of the issue you’re seeing, the steps you’ve attempted, and their results. Include a link to this discussion for further reference.
