The ranks of contributors to the Dolibarr project are:
'''<span id="Soldier">* Soldier</span> '''
The first thing that a person willing to help is to be familiar with the rules and standards developments.
Due to the nature of this level, it is not possible to establish a list of all Dolibarr actors with this grade (list always changing and too long).
The next step is to submit your first patch, starting with simple ones, on the dev Mailing List (see chapter [[Developer FAQ#Submit a patch, work and help on Dolibarr development|Submit a patch, work and help on Dolibarr development]] for the procedure) or on the forum (Preferred Mailing List).
A list of Dolibarr contributors with this grade is available on page [[:Category:Chasseur]]
If you are fluent in a language not or poorly translated into Dolibarr, a '''Jedi''' or '''Yoda''' will grant CVS access to your Savannah login, so you can make changes and commits directly into the CVS of the project.

Only after a variable time (which can be very long) to the rank of a Fighter, and many patches of suitable quality had been sent, a Yoda in place allows you to make CVS commits extended for cause of any patch.

This is even after a variable time (probably the longest of all) to the rank of Admiral, and the quality of the patch that was sent is satisfactory, that a Yoda will tell you that you are authorized to perform commits without restrictions, included new features, however you will still have to explain to all Yoda what you want to do to give back a "go".

'''* <span id="Yoda">Yoda</span> '''
There is about 1 to 5 '''Yoda'''. It's the overall management of project development. This ranking is obtained by inheritance or vote, for example it can be after a vote organized by a Yoda making retirement.
