Want to start contributing to mysql-operator source

Hello everyone, looking forward to contribute to the community.

I want to start contributing to percona projects specifically mysql-operator. I went through a contribution guidelines. But I only found the setup instructions for centos only, does it mean that the project will not be properly setup for the debian based OS ?

Also i wanted to ask, can I set up and build the mysql-operator in the windows system or not really?

Thank You

Hello @Arin_Modi,
You should be able to build on Debian because our base image will still pull CentOS. If you have a docker environment in Windows, you should be able to build there as well because you are not compiling a “windows version” of anything. The operator itself is written in Go, so you can edit/compile on any OS with the understanding that the operator code will execute on a linux-based OS.
