Entry point for new developers?

Hey all,

I've been using openwrt/lede for years and I'd like to start giving back by testing/developing for the project. However, I'm having a bit of trouble finding an entry point. First and foremost, I'm not actually sure where the git repo (assuming it's git) actually is. The main openwrt.org page has a "submitting patches" sub-page which has

Patches can be submitted as a pull request on Github or via the mailing list.

So, ok github. However, when I go to github I see

This repository is a mirror of https://git.openwrt.org/openwrt/openwrt.git It is for reference only and is not active for check-ins or for reporting issues. We will continue to accept Pull Requests here. They will be merged via staging trees then into openwrt.git. All issues should be reported at: https://bugs.openwrt.org

Ok... so I know where to file bugs, but where is the repo. Sorry if I'm just missing something, but I'm just not finding the repo. Can someone point me in the right direction?

The main git master is https://git.openwrt.org/openwrt/openwrt.git, as mentioned - github is automatically mirrored from there and open for pull requests (so if you want to use github pull requests, clone the github mirror - if you want to communicate via patch series to the mailing list, either repo does the job), this means both trees should be in sync virtually at all times.

Gotcha. I wasn't sure given that the git also says it's active not for check-ins. Thanks.
