THIS IS PRE-ALPHA SOFTWARE AND SHOULD BE TREATED ACCORDINGLY. PLEASE, DO NOT RUN IN PRODUCTION. IT IS FUN TO GET RUNNING, BUT EXPECT THINGS TO BE BROKEN.
Installation instructions are here.
Thanks for helping battle test Diaspora. Please report any bugs you see at bugs.joindiaspora.com.

Here are a few good places to start:
Run “rake cucumber” to run our Cucumber integration test suite. As you can see, we need more integration tests. Pick a feature and write one!
Take a look at the issue tracker and pick a bug. Write a spec for it, so it’s easy for another developer to fix it.
Patches must be tested, and all your tests should be green, unless you’re marking an existing bug, before a pull request is sent. Unit tests should be in Rspec, and integration tests should be in Cucumber.
Please make your changes in a branch to ensure that new commits to your master are not included in the pull request, and to make it easier for us to merge your commits.
Please do not rebase our tree into yours. See here for when to rebase.
We need you to fill out a contributor agreement form before we can accept your patches. The agreement gives Diaspora joint ownership of the patch so the copyright isn’t scattered. You can find it here. We’re currently working on revising it more details on what we’re going for can be found here.
