I have 2+ years of experience working with neural networks and machine learning, and am very interested in the
"Neural Networks package: Convolutional Neural Networks" project.
But am new to the open source community, so I don't know how to submit the bug fixes or patches for the GNU-Octave or any other project. I am trying to read about it, but not finding any suitable guidance.
So I wanted to know whether it would be acceptable if I do some preliminary coding of new functions to be included in the GNU-Octave project, instead of fixing bugs?
