Contributing to the OpenTelemetry Documentation

The per-language API, SDK, and “Getting Started” documentation is hosted in each language’s GitHub repository. For more information, see the Mirrored Documentation section of the website repository’s file.

Contributor License Agreement (CLA)

Contributors to this and other OpenTelemetry projects require acceptance of our CLA, managed by EasyCLA.
