Source code management
We are currently using Git as the SCM for Orfeo ToolBox. We also have a GitHub mirror where you can submit pull requests. More information about downloading with Git, and our workflow is available on the wiki. Clone the repository with:
git clone -b develop https://firstname.lastname@example.org/git/otb.git
Compiling OTB from source
Detailed instructions are available in the Software Guide documentation.
Tests are at the center of the OTB development process to ensure that code functions correctly across different platforms and configurations. We are using the the CDash testing system and there are nightly submissions post to the OTB CDash server. Experimental builds may be submitted by anyone, and helps to notice problems with the system and to communicate with other developers and users.
