## Getting Started
1. Reach out via our [mailing list](https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/prometheus-developers) and ask us what
the current priorities are. We can find a good isolated starter project for

2. Run ``make advice`` to find facial errors with a static analyzer.
3. Try to capture your changes in some form of a test. Go makes it easy to
write [Table Driven Tests](https://code.google.com/p/go-wiki/wiki/TableDrivenTests).
There is no mandate to use this said scaffolding mechanism, but it _can_
make your life easier in the right circumstances.
