    1919Now that you know what to do, you should go and create your private [wiki:BazaarWorkflow Bazaar branch] of HelenOS. This is essential so that we can later merge your changes together with your initials in the development history of the branch. During the coding phase, keep in mind that we will require your changes to meet our coding style standards. It will happen to you from time to time that you will need to consult something with the other people from the project. Don't be shy and feel free to discuss things with us either in the mailing list or on IRC. For example, you can create a merge directive in Bazaar and send it to the mailing list for code review. Make smaller, logically related changesets rather than one huge changeset. Make sure that each changeset is accompanied by a clear commit message in English.
     21== Compiling the system ==
     23Once you have your Bazaar branch ready you will want to compile the system so that you can test your changes. There are some common mistakes people make when trying to compile HelenOS so please read the [wiki:UsersGuide/CompilingFromSource compiling instructions] carefully before running to us claiming that HelenOS does not build or does not work.
